the car drives very nicely and I adore it. I took it into work yesterday and you would not believe the reactions you get from people! I had a friend in the car and as we were driving through town someone was madly waving at us.
My friend pointed this guy out and asked me who he was. I didn't know him at all but I waved back anyway, probably made his day!
Later I was reversing up my drive to the garage and a passing motorist started honking his horn. When I looked over he was smiling giving me the thumbs up as he drove past.
I remember some years ago when I hired a yellow 348 spider for the weekend, we were driving out of Birmingham and some young guys (maybe 20 years old) shouted obscenities at us, just because we were youngish guys ourselves driving a nice car with the roof down. I haven't encountered any hostility with the new car yet and hope that I don't.
I haven't "pushed" the Ferrari yet and I doubt I will. With such a powerful car you would be silly to drive it at the limit on the public highway and I'm not really interested in taking it onto the track. I'm also wary of stonechips, I know how easily the paint is damaged and the last owner spent £3,500 GBP getting the paintwork done so there isn't a mark on it anywhere right now. I'm just going to enjoy cruising with the roof down, going to shows and places like Donnington, and maybe the occasional quick blast on an empty road.
