Revved a cold 458

Hi everyone,

Yesterday i started up my dad's Ferrari 458. It know it's not good to rev a cold engine, but i wasn't thinking clearly.

I revved the engine to 4000-5000 rpm 4-5 times right after it was started cold.

Afterwards when i took it for a ride I've might also have stepped a little too much on the gas.

Could it have damaged the engine and should i be worried?

Best regards

Make sure you tell your father about it so he can have her checked and pull your head out next time he lets you drive her. In the summer, probably did not do too much to her.

Every day I look around, and if nobody is shooting at me, it is a pretty good day.
