    Corso pilota, drove the 458 in Fiorano track...

     i trully have no words to describe, first, corso pilota ferrari is an AMAZING experience, i spent 2 days in paradise, everything is perfect! then there is the 458.. what a machine, i never thought, even in my wildest dreams, that it would be so good.. the gearbox is amazing, and IMO and i say IMO much better than the pdk, the engine is superbe, and then there is this chassis and steering.. wow, the car feels on rails, and the scalpel precision steering is a treat. power is abundant and finally you have torque everywhere. we also drove 599 hgte , and after stepping down from the 458, the 599 feels like a 20 years old car, so outdated compared to the 458.. i lapped fiorano at 1.29, that is "only" 4 seconds slower than the official time of ferrari, this tells how easy the car is to drive.. i have some nice pictures tat i will post tomorrow. i highly recommend the course to ferraristi

    i drove the car very hard 2 full days, if anyone has questions, will be glad to answer

    Thanks for the review broSmiley
    Tell me, what didd u think of the standard wheels when u saw them in the flesh?? Do you agree with me that the Sport wheels are better??

    Also, what's the best looking color ??


    Re: Corso pilota, drove the 458 in Fiorano track...

    Dimitri,

    1:29 time is very impressive, nevertheless

    I'm sure you become more unpatient with the waiting time of your 458.

    It is my no.1 Car, right now.

     Thanks for the writeup Dimitri, i can't wait to see how your yellow car turns out. How did you feel the power delivery compared to the Scud and would you say that the sportiness is "dulled" in a way with Ferraris new approach of making the car more drivable in a daily basis??


    Re: Corso pilota, drove the 458 in Fiorano track...

    Great - thanks Dimitri - looking forward to seeing more photos

    Your experience sounds desirable! Thanks for the write up - is so tempting!


    Re: Corso pilota, drove the 458 in Fiorano track...

    Sounds like you had great fun Dimitri. Your car must be due to arrive any day now


    Re: Corso pilota, drove the 458 in Fiorano track...

    nice pics & read and most of all: Congratulations for having such a car in a few days!


    Re: Corso pilota, drove the 458 in Fiorano track...

    Looks like one hell of a time you had Dimitri

    Unforgettable experience you had for 2 days! Smiley

    1:29 is a great time!  Sounds like the 458 exceeded your expectations. Smiley


    Re: Corso pilota, drove the 458 in Fiorano track...

     on one of "exercise" we had our trainer running in the pace car that was a scuderia, and on the main straight line, the 458 was eating the scud , i had to put the gaz off twice on the straight in order not to colide him. the car is insanely fast and so easy to drive, even on daily basis

    after the course i went to the factory tou and luckily i saw a yellow 458 , i approached it and i asked the worker on the destination country and order number, and it was my car!  

    koko, standard wheels are nice but i prefer sport wheels, as for the colors, of course my favourite is yellow, red is nice but a bit deja vu, white is very classy, and black is very agressive but kills the lines and details of the car
