Ferrari 458 Spider - Guest drives

The Ferrari 458 Spider is a V8 engine supercar from Ferrari. They've applied all their technical knowhow from the F1 team and applied it to this car. This model also comes with all the Speciale options. The result is stunning. Seated in the drivers seat you feel embraced by the car. The steering wheel could be straight from a Ferrari F1 car.

What to expect from the Tesco Ferrari 458 Spider V Porsche Experience

This driving experience is all about the very latest and according to the press, the very best Ferrari ever made - the 458 Spider. To look at, it's obviously a Ferrari but ultimately looks ultra modern. As you would expect from Ferrari, the 458 Italia is a technical tour de force that results in a driving experience that rewrites the supercar rule book.

No words can properly describe the feeling you get when driving the Ferrari 458. It is quite simply unbelievable.

Out on track the car just gets better. Hit the throttle in any gear and the car takes off immediately. Once up to speed the car has so much grip.

As part of the Ferrari 458 Spider driving experience, guest will have a chance to learn the race circuit with an ARDS qualified race instructor initially as a passenger and then driving the Porsche Cayman. It's a fantastic sports car that out performs other more expensive machinery. A great car that gives the driver lots confidence behind the wheel.
