Saw the new F458 today in the flesh

Saw the black 458 testing in and around Maranello today guys. Fantastic All that they said it would be from what i saw and heard.
Also got to know a guy who was in the next suite to me called Tony Noble who is a very serious American Ferrari collector. Saw him test one of his two ex MS F1 cars at the Fiorano test track. Bloody nice guy
Will do a full report along with pictures on here in two days time

Unfortunatly i could not take pics due to me driving at the time. The 458 was NOT on the track,......it was on the road
Acording to freinds of mine in Maranello who own the Warm up Ferrari shop, the test 458 is often seen driving through Maranello towards the hills. The car always has a blue California on it bumper protecting its rear.
The cars dont hang about and they never use the main road were theres trafic lights. They use the back roads.
However i did watch MSs F1 car test at Fiorano yesterday, by this man ( in the picture with the 330 and myself) Tony Noble.
I will do a write up on my trip very soon but will say this. Stefanos partner who owns the Warm up ferrari shop, is currently building a 430. He owns the yellow 360 in the middle of Stefanos 355 and my 355 spider on the right. With the help of a couple of Ferrari macanics, he is installing a Ferrari made A1 840bhp engine into it. He is going to use it in the 2010 UK Gumball rally So remember were you have heard it first
Like i said i will do a write up soon.

2001 MS F1 car testing. I wonder if the FIA was watching because testing is banned this years season . And all F1 race cars do sound the same
