Scared of driving fast in the rain? Watch this Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta!

Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta driven hard, top down, in the rain!

So firstly we would like to make it clear that we do not condone driving fast in wet weather, or driving fast on public roads at all. There are moments though that call for a bit of hooning around, for instance when you have a closed road to yourself. Journalist Jethro Bovingdon from Evo magazine had just that when he test drove the new Ferrari 458 Speciale Aperta, the convertible version of the Ferrari 458 Speciale. Like any petrol-head who has the opportunity to, he drove this car very confidently in the pouring rain…with the roof down too! We at TheMotorist must say Mr.Bovingdon, a brave man you are! For that we salute you. Enjoy!
