Despite being caught up in the media whirlwind surrounding fellow Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson's fist, James May has ordered a Ferrari 458 Speciale. It's not every day you order a car from one of the globe's finest automotive Marques after your future is in the air regarding income, but we all know the Italian manufacturer gives May the "fizz", a feeling he attributes to special cars.
Although his house requires a new roof, he managed to successfully put his argument across to his better half he affectionately calls, "Woman".
May has previously owned a F430 and a 458 Italia, but instead of opting for the upcoming 488 GTB, he decided on an orange (yes, orange!) 458 Speciale. The fact it's the last 458 off the production line before the 488 GTB begins its run makes it a very special car indeed.
Top Gear fans will no doubt know of May's affections for the Dacia Sandero, and one aspect of the 458 Speciale he noticed was the fact its racing stripe cost almost exactly the same price as the little Romanian car. Before options the Speciale is a remarkable £208,090, but the TV presenter hopes he'll make it back in the future.
I'm sure Captain Slow, Jezza, and Hamster will appear on TV together some time in the future - when that will be, who knows - but when they do, it won't take long for the 'orange' jokes to start regarding May's latest edition.

Jason Statham's owned some pretty sweet rides in the past including multiple Audi's but this is a big upgrade and the first time we've seen him with a Ferrari.
Ferrari USA shared a photo of Statham with his "real-world supercar", the Ferrari F12 Berlinetta outside his home in Los Angeles this past week. Statham plays the sinister Deckard Shaw, who drives a Jaguar F-Type in Furious 7, but in real life we hear he's actually a nice guy and we certainly know he has good taste when it comes to his cars!

It looks like Lewis Hamilton isn't the only famous Brit running around with a new Ferrari LaFerrari. Gordon Ramsay was spotted on the streets of London with his own LaFerrari recently. Ramsay also shared photos of his new Ferrari on his Instagram page with the caption, "holy mackerel its fast". Ramsay's no stranger to Ferrari -- he's had quite a few Ferrari's in his garage over the years including this white Ferrari 458 Italia.
