I did some lap with a 458 speciale, and I find it easy to drive in real life (and by easy, I mean very easy for such a performant car). The way the 458 italia handles in AC is total madness ! The car has a damned crap bad grip on the front ... this is not simply understeer ... I cannot explain, but take the M3 you will see the difference. The cornering is then very strange, and so accelerating the car is just very difficult as a big understeer in entry ends with a bad oversteer on exit . When you take the McLaren for example, you do not have this crazy handling. Same with the Huayra or LaFerrari (but the tyres are not the same).
