About the Ferrari test drive, does one of the officials accompany you in the car?
It isnt an OFFICIAL Ferrari test drive. But yes, there is someone who is always with you. In my case, it was an Egnlish speaking person who was a professional race car driver. He even conducts classes at Silverstone on circuit driving.

This is the company which runs the test drive business outside the Ferrari museum at Maranello.

Continuing after many months. All that exposure to Ferraris had gotten me tempted to drive one. But somehow couldn't get around to convince myself to pay through my nose for such a drive! Nevertheless, wife convinced me that it was worth it and it took all of a milli-second to start walking in that direction. Like Nikhil mentioned above, the place is called Pushstart and its right next to the Galleria.

Seen a better panoramic view?

The contenders for my drive are:
# 1- A Red California ( 4-seater)

# 2- Another Ferrari. What else can you expect?

#3 - Neighbor's envy turning it green (Lamborghinis are built in a neigbouring town)

The winner is the 4-seater. Wife and I both wanted to take a drive and we had the guy from Pushstart also so the California it was to be!
