Incorporating the newest technologies from Formula 1 and the limited edition LaFerrari, the 488 is faster, sharper, and more refined than any other car in existence.

"My wife gave me a "Drive a Ferrari" experience booked through Cloud 9 Living. What a blast! Most everything went smoothly, they were very aware of spectator comfort and took care of everything. Driving the car was out of this world! The only problem was that part of the booking did not transfer from Cloud 9 Living. They found the problem and fixed it, but we still didn't get quite what she had paid for. Still a great experience!"

"Went to Pittsburgh International Raceway. Car was great, staff was great, overall race experience was fair. Description on website states 3 laps and really you get 2 laps to actually race the car. One lap is parking the car back where you started. Probably need to clear that part up. I went to drive a Ferrari 458 Italia. I'm there to go fast. I may have hit 100mph due to the short track. I drove faster than that on the way there. People go here to drive super cars and get high speeds. Not say I drove a Ferrari at limited speed to the grocery store. This experience needs to be booked on a bigger track to actually make it worth it. "

"Overall event was extremely well organized and lots of fun.....beautiful weather helped a lot, too! Very good pre-drive session. Instructor in the car was very animated and a huge plus for the drive. Maybe I missed the ability to add extras like photos and videos during booking, but it would be nice to take care of all the paperwork in advance... if this can be done, my bad. Would definitely consider doing again."
