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


This 360 makeover is a genuine disappointment to a true Ferrari fan. The engine, while an improvement over the 360 is light years behind the V10 powered Gallardo. The F1 shifter is still jerky at max revs but is also an improvement over the 360. Reliability is a big issue. In one month air conditioning, paint and trim issues were so bad I sold the car.

Best Features

Ferrari allows a great deal of interior and exterior customization. Your Ferrari can be unlike any other.

Worst Features

The engine is woefully underpowered. The F1 shifter and actuation system is the same as the very unreliable 360 and you will replace it befor 35,000 miles. The brakes fade slighlty after several hours of hot running. The traction control system is way too restrictive for really fun driving.
