Last Sunday I had the chance to go for a ride in the 488GTB Spider and the FF. Two very different cars/experiences as you would expect but I just wanted to say a few words about each. The first thing that comes to my mind when thinking about the FF is its glorious V12 sound. It revs and revs... It doesn't get much better than that.
The second thing would be its Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde type of personality. What I mean by that is that you can enjoy the comfort, the fine materials, the 4 seats, the luggage space and the excellent ride quality like you would in luxury saloon car. It is so useable and practical. However, as soon as you turn the Manettino on Race mode, the car transforms itself and is capable of all sorts of hooliganery. It's mighty impressive !
Now, what about the 488GTB Spider ? Well, as soon as you get it in, it feels very different, much more race-oriented albeit still very comfortable. The sheer speed of this car is mind-bending. It goes and goes effortlessly ... As far as the sound goes ? Well, of course you miss the sound of a 458 Italia or a Speciale a little bit. But you can't have it all, can you ?
What a Sunday it has been ! 😲
A much more detailed article will be posted on the website. I just wanted to give you guys my first impressions.
