Chris Harris gets to abuse his fair share of cars that we can only dream about driving, so why not add the Ferrari 458 Spider to that list. After somehow borrowing the keys to a Ferrari-owned 458 Spider, Harris spends about five minutes driving the 570-horsepower, open-air supercar like an "idiot" (his words, not ours).

In reality, it's impressive to watch the $257,000 (base price) 458 Spider being drifted and pushed hard into every turn. Not surprisingly, the car handles the "bad behavior" very well, but what is amazing is how easy it is for Harris to talk to the camera despite the top being down and the engine being at full throttle almost the entire time.

If you like watching Ferraris get sideways, you will most certainly enjoy Harris' video, which is posted below.

      Ferrari do your thing, make good cars and Chris Harris keep doing what you are doing. After Top Gear UK, Chris Harris is not far behind.

      I just love the absurdity of it, the video work was just awesome and his driving makes me not want to even be seen behind the wheel of any car. That straight into the camera laugh is the best summary of the video.. its just pure fun

      "ferrari has never been tempted too build a car for the people. All Ferrari's are expensive, beautiful, impractical, and fast. They're out of the reach of mortal man and they always have been Mr. and Mrs. normal for acatia avenue cannot afford a ferrari, and that makes every single one of them is a dream car"-Jeremy Clarkson.

        Except for the Dino, which cost about the same as the OG 911. I mean, they were both a fair amount of money, but nothing amazing. Anyway, Jeremy Clarkson is such a friggan tool.

      Hearing and seeing a car just get pounded like this makes go "Wow...that's cool!" and then "Wow...what's the point of that". Maybe it's all the Ken Block videos. Maybe I'm likely just getting old. Ah well, it's better than the alternative!

      ...I can't believe that Ferrari wouldn't be pissed off regarding his driving attitude? If that were my car, I'd of hauled him out of it and smacked him around for awhile......................But since it isn't my car....................YEAH BABY!!!!!!!!!
