It must be rather unfortunate that the Ferrari Mondial QV was the first Ferrari James May ever drove. Then again, he is Captain Slow. I've known Mondial owners who love their cars, and the sound of any Ferrari eight is guaranteed to send shivers. But when somebody says, "Blah, blah...my Ferrari..." we inquire as to which Ferrari that may be and the answer comes back, "Mondial," well, we always wince a little inside. We'd much rather have a 308 GT4, frankly. Video above? May in a Ferrari he does like.
