Differen between F430 Spider and 360 Spider

Currently have a 04 highly optioned 360. I am strongly considering upgrading to the 430 spider which would also have to be highly optioned. They both look very similar but how do they compare performance wise. Also what color do you like? My 360 is a silver blue, and on the 430 I'm looking at titanium/grey. Also no red, I've had too many red Ferraris before

You ask some strange questions. Why is it if you own a 360 and owned other Ferrari's you seem to know nothing about a 430?

When I was looking for a Ferrari or Lamborghini I did as much searching as possible on the model specific of purchase.


Like the 355 being superior to the 348 so is the 430 to the 360 but even more so.

F360 Spider 0-60 4.5 sec top speed 180mph Fast car
F430 Spider 0-60 4.1 sec top speed 193mph Entering Supercar speeds

The colors on the F430 are faster than the colors on the 360.

430 is basically 100 more bhp, an upgraded interior, and the manettino dial on the steering wheel. Basic chassis etc are the same.

All new engine with timing chain not belts, all new E diff , much improved stability control systems, vastly improved F1 gearbox, xenon lights as standard, carbon brakes standard from 08 models onwards, revised suspension geometry, some chassis mod's from Challenge Stradale. It is a vastly improved car to drive than the 360.

I don't care about sped that much I want comfort so I want every option possible. Also I won't look at lamborghinis, their employees were extremely rude.

I know nothing of because up until two weeks ago, I dislike the car and thought it was ugly. When I looked at it I thought it was boxy and had a small rear grille was small. I live in Los Angeles and went to the Beverly hills Ferrari and the car really grew on me. Mainly because of the carbon fiber back grille and certain colors bring out characteristics of the car I never noticed before.

I was at the Beverly Hills Ferrai dealership beginning of the month, come to think of it I was at the New port Beach one as well, nice auto in both. Which one were you looking at?

Don't worry about the Lamborghini dealership being rude they are told to act that way

Well, if you live and drive in LA, forget about performance differences, you'll never be able to tell.

I think one of the differences is the 430 has a carbon fiber back grill, which is really cool. Brings out the color. It's also more comfortable. Hope that helps. YMMV
