Any old excuse to post a photo of a pretty Italian...

We'll freely admit that today's pic of the week is more than a little bit gratuitous, but we never promised that POTW was always going to be topical.
If there is a tenuous link to topicality, then it's to celebrate the fact that we've managed to get our grubby mitts on Maranello's latest piece of automotive wonderfulness - the 458 Italia - for a few days (though needless to say we won't be doing much of this sort of cornering).
Editor Chris-R will no doubt further enlighten us all (both here in the office and out there in the real PH world) when he delivers his review of the car, but for now suffice it to say that few cars have generated more excitement at PHHQ than the 458.
There's also a bit of a PH exclusive, here. Due to the current unpleasantly cold weather, Ferrari has now fitted its press car with winter tyres, and we are the first media-type people to try out the Pirelli Sottozeros.
IMHO dont find the 458 beautiful at all, this is prob the worst pic i've seen
note: i'm sure it;s wonderful engineering though
I agree with you on the looks, well nearly as I think it is ugly which is probably a step further than yourself but I cant agree that the engineering is wonderful firstly because its not German and secondly because they catch fire!

...some might say they look better when in flames....and that seems to be quite often.

Beauty and the beast!
Taken near our clubhouse in Wakefield. Their are plenty of other pictures or our cars on my gallery, including some pictures from our stand at the MPH / Top Gear Live show at the NEC. http://gallery.me.com/paulbrown#gallery
