    I think that experience would go something along the lines of great fun followed shortly afterwards by a letter landing on the door mat informing you that you no longer own a UK driving licence. There's no way you could drive this hard on a public road and be anything close to within the law.

    Obviously on a track you could explore the performance more but then if you buy a car for the track would it be a Spider with all the 'mod cons' or would it be a stripped out light weight racer? Why not buy a 488 Spider for the road and with the 200k change go get something track focused for the track? A little like Simon I struggle to see the point any more.

    Don't get me wrong, I do quite like it....... but then I quite like the 458/488 Spiders and there's nothing on this car in terms of performance advantage over a 458 or 488 that I could actually use. So, like I said, what's the point?

    It's a phenomenal achievement, and I would like a shot to see just what that much power feels like.

    But I'd truthfully rather have a Roma - much prettier, and crucially more usable. I'd do far more miles in it, at closer to the cars performance potential (although arguably even it is too fast) - and that's surely the whole point, isn't it?

    A Roma with a circa 4 litre, N/A V12 would be my perfect car

    Easy, increase the price, they've been doing it for years!

    I've got one of those - probably why the Roma appeals
