Ferrari F430 Profile


 Ferrari F430  (2005 - date)

Profile
The superb new F430 has been hailed by many as the best Ferrari ever made and possibly the best supercar available today.

Styling changes over the 360 Modena are subtle but effective but still not in the same league as Maranello's classics - function now takes precedence over form. There can be no arguments with performance though. The F430's 483bhp V8 allows 0-60 in well under 4 seconds and a near 200mph maximum, making it more than a match for arch rivals the Gallardo and 996 Turbo.

F1 technology abounds with the intriguing 'Manettino' dial that optimises the car for a variety of driving conditions including rain, ice and race! The package is completed by the fitment of optional carbon/ceramic brakes and superfast paddle shift gearbox - so good it's now the recommended choice over manual.
