    meet her majesty, the F430 spider.

    at around $ 200.000 it's a steal


    some specs:

    "The F430 is a technical masterpiece, particularly with its new six-speed F1 gearbox. It also comes with a electronic differential, which can be controlled internally by the driver through a knob on the steering wheel.

    In accordance with the exterior, the interior has also undergone changes with a new steering wheel and centre consol being the most obvious. Compared to the 360 Modena, the F430's interior has much sportier overtones.*The steering wheel is more adjustable, while the speedometer background is available in yellow or red.* The centre console is also available in either aluminium or carbon finish.

    With the European version of the car developing 490bhp, the 1,350 kg (dry weight) F430 has a power-to-weight ratio equal to that of the 360 Challenge Stradale.**

    Performance is stunning, with the sprint from 0-96 km/h (0-60 mph) taking only 4 seconds.* 0-160 km/h (0-100 mph) takes 9.20 seconds, whilst 0-242 km/h (0-150 mph) takes 21.4 seconds. The car does the standing quarter mile in 12.8 seconds at 190 km/h (118 mph), whilst the top speed lies at 315 km/h (197 mph).*Optional CCM Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes help ensure that this power remains under control."

    Oh that thing. I designed and built that little trinket in a weeked in my garage. Some company called Ferrari or something bought my prototype for 20 bucks. Eh. Whatever.

    :D

    Ferrari are great, and they do look good, are VERY fast etc....but there's just something about them. People would look at you and think you're a self indulging little twat making up for something in a big, obvious way :eek: No, I'll take an Aston Martin DB9 any day thank you. Course, if anyone wants to give me an F430 that's fine...I'll sell it and get the Aston :p

    Whenever I see someone in a Ferrari, I always get the thought that they have just made their first million, and this is the car they bought with it.

    If I ever had the money to waste on a supercar, Ferrari would be way down my list. I've always preferred Lamborghini over Ferrari, or like edesign said, buy a DB9 then you've got power, luxury and it's usable every day.

    But when you drive an Aston, people get the impression you're too old and boring for a Ferrari, and that when it comes to 'excitement' you'll probably need to pop a blue pill! ;) heheh :p

    Just to correct the performance data... (Car and Driver Magazine)

    0-60 = 3.5 sec
    0-100 = 7.9 sec
    Standing 1/4 = 11.7 sec @ 123 mph

    In other words, it goes like an F40 ;)

    Have to admit, I do rather like that Spyder version, looks quite dandy in that gunmetal grey :) still not a fan of the coupe version though.
