2005 Ferrari F430 Spider 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 6M)


Review

The F430 is a great drive around town car, as well as a take on the track car. I have always liked the Pinin Farina style design, which compliments its predecessors.


Favorite Features

I like being able to go from 60 mph to a grinding 15 mph to make the corner going into my subdivision.

2005 Ferrari F430 Spider 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 6M)


Review

This vehicle is amazing, fast, sleek, responsive, quick, it turns every head, you will not want to get out of it. I went from a 360 Modena to the F-430 F-1 and noticed a world of change it's like night and day. You've got to drive this vehicle to see what I mean.


Favorite Features

Everything, F-1 Paddles, stereo, top less, color, gadgets, etc.


Suggested Improvements

Door handle, they should of changed the door handle, it still has the 360 door handles?

2005 Ferrari F430 F1 Spider 2dr Convertible (4.3L 8cyl 6AM)


Review

The 2005 Ferrari F430 is an excellent performance vehicle, close to the supercars such as the Enzo or F50, but with lots of comfort, for a fraction of the price. The electronics are amazing, but a little fuzzy at first.


Favorite Features

The F1 transmission, ceramic brakes, and electronics.

2005 Ferrari F430 F1 2dr Coupe (4.3L 8cyl 6AM)


Review

The 2006 F430 is a product of art and technology at their finest. It is by far one of the most beautiful automobiles ever made. The drive is sensational and incomparably satisfying. Compared to the Modena 360 I had, its looks are more modern and aggressive. Its interior is exquisitely detailed with soft leather and stitching with its feel and smell that only a Ferrari delivers and better than even an Louis Vuiton handbag. The F1 is much more smooth than a Modena 360. The handling is razor sharp, superior to the 360, a world apart from almost any other vehicle on the market. A true appreciation of a Ferrari can only come from actual ownership and prolonged driving experience.


Favorite Features

Unlike the almost identical looks of the Mercedes SL 500, 55 AMG, 65 AMG, antiquated looks of Porsche 911, and bland looks of most sports cars, the F430 is immediately recognizable for its awesome presence on the road. Its "inner" strength --performance-- need not be mentioned.


Suggested Improvements

None

Review

Though this is our first Ferrari, we underestimated what we were actually buying. Our F430 is far and away a better vehicle than either the Lamborghini Gallardo or the Porsche Carrera GT that we were able to drive. Special thanks to dealers that let 30 something millionaires drive before we buy. You earned our business!


Favorite Features

This car not only looks hot...it is hot. I had an offer of $35,000 more than I payed for it later on in the night I brought it home.


Suggested Improvements

More bling? Oh wait... this isn't a Bentley. It looks great!
