What happened to James May's Ferrari 458 Speciale?

It has been away from the public eye for what seems like years, but James finally has the V8 thoroughbred Ferrari back in his garage, ready for a thrash into the countryside when lockdown lifts. Mike grabbed him for a chat about the car, and how his 2021 is going so far.

    If il Commendatore were still with us, James is the type of person who would never be allowed to buy one of his machines. An old fuddy-duddy, who's more concerned with depreciation than lap times, or, cornering speeds. Cars are not "investments". They are machines that are meant to be used, and, enjoyed, with passion, not, locked away in a garage, and, speculated on.

    James May needs to present a series on the basics of motoring, the technical details I reckon there's enough for a 6 part series of hour long episodes on each major component. Suspension, wheels & tyres, gears & drivetrain, body materials, valves and brakes.
