Sold the 575M, bought an F340 Spider
I'd like to introduce myself here as the proud new owner of a 2008 F430 Spider. I just did the deal this week, after at least a year of consideration and thought behind the possibility of moving from my beloved 575M Maranello to either a 599 (no longer affordable for me unfortunately) or an F430 Coupe. Yes I said coupe because I have never been a convertible guy and was not interested in the Spider at all until I test drove it. Fortunately I picked perhaps the last nice sunny fall day before the onslaught of winter here in Toronto Canada, and having the top down was a wonderful experience. The 360 degree visibility and sound of the engine won me over,. I also liked the size and feeling of lightness, as well as the short view of the road over the hood. I am not saying I would not go back to a V12 Ferrari, I loved the 575M, but as they say "variety is the spice of life". Here is my 575M saying good-bye and my new F430 Spider saying hello...
