Ferrari 488 GTB drive review 600x345 at Harry Metcalfe Reviews Ferrari 488 GTB

Just like good old days when Harry Metcalfe had only one job and that was being a motoring journalist, he goes all the way to the Ferrari factory in Maranello to pick up a Ferrari 488 GTB and drive it on some of Italy’s finest country roads. This is, to all intents and purposes, the most in-depth and technically fascinating review of the 488 you get.

We’re not sure if Harry gets to have as much fun in his other job as the advisor to Jaguar Land Rover Special Operations team, but this Ferrari 488 GTB drive certainly seems to beat sitting in an office all day!
