My Ferrari 458 Italia

I've recently bought this car, a 2012 model with 7.5k miles, and what an amazing thing it is. I think I'm most impressed at how it can cruise about in auto mode like a luxury GT, and then switch instantly to full mental mode when you want it to!

It was in great condition when I bought it although the paint was quite badly swirled, a shame with such lovely paint (a special option triple layer paint called Rosso Fuoco). I've machine polished the car myself and am delighted with the results. Rosso Fuoco is an amazing colour in reality, although quite hard to photograph well.

Great car and nice to see that it's owned by an enthusiast who get's his hands dirty looking after it.

Stunning! I know the colour, very expensive option but gorgeous in the light - you've definitely done it justice!
