The Quintessential Ferrari
A car sure to impress even when parked, the F430 is a true exotic offering maximum driving thrills. Rocketing up to cruising speed is a gut-wrenching affair, and the V8's substantial power creates a shrieking wail that might be considered offensive or melodic, depending on context. Passing slower traffic is absurdly easy, and its superbly engineered steering and suspension connects the driver to the road in a manner few other cars of its time can match.
The F430 Spider is the convertible version based on the coupe and was designed by Pininfarina with aerodynamic simulation programs also used for Formula 1 cars. The fabric roof panel automatically folds away inside a space above the engine bay. It also features automatic exhaust-pipe valves, which turn up the "wail" under hard acceleration around 4000 rpm. The F430 Spider proves to be an exotic that can truly be enjoyed in all types of conditions.
The F1 inspired automated paddle shift transmission, one in which Ferrari has finally achieved a harmonious balance, derives from the F430,... and we can go on on, but we guess the point here is to get out on the road in this masterpiece!
This prancing horse has your name all over it. What are you waiting for?
