Mr. Sideways has been invited to drive the latest sports car from Maranello on the road and on the Fiorano race track.

The Ferrari 488 GTB features the first turbocharged engine in this generation and, according to Harris, it sounds similar to the naturally-aspirated V8 in the "old" 458 Italia. The engine unleashes 660 hp at 8,000 rpm along with 560 lb-ft (760 Nm) of maximum torque in seventh gear. It allows the 488 GTB to accelerate from 0-124 km/h in 8.3 seconds and, when combined with the innovations introduced on all aspects of the car's performance, lap the Fiorano track in just 1'23".

"I don't know where they'll go from here, this is F12 fast," said the visibly exhausted Harris at the end of the test drive.
