They also have a really nice Speciale there. Now I know the Spesh pretty well of course. I've partnered one on roadtips and and have driven them a few times too. I ponder over the numbers and how the car might fit in vis a vis a 488 but the truth is, at the point I'm at in my life, the more modern car suits my needs much better.
We all love the limited run cars, the rarity, the specialiness, the extra degree of feel and driver appeal but the cynic in me these days is perhaps not quite such a believer as many others. Whilst they might offer the highest high on a particular road at a particular time, they cost more, are more mileage sensitive, encourage you to mothball rather than rag, and over a wide band of all sorts of real world driving the regular car will often be a better all round bet. The 488 also happens to be way way faster and looks just as sexy if not better from some angles. I am collector of experiences rather than cars and I want a vehicle which will serve my roadtrips with uninhibited usage and the minimum of stress. Give me warranty, freedom from MOT's, breakdown cover, free servicing and a fuss free clean exit strategy. Give me the new car that is just as superb down the village high street as it is on a mountain pass.
