Filling in for Jeremy Clarkson who usually writes the reviews for Sunday Times Driving, James May heads to Italy to drives the new Ferrari 488 GTB. Captain Slow is the right man for the job since he has owned a Ferrari F430, which he traded in for a 458 Italia, which he has now replaced with a 458 Speciale.
