Better is a rather broad arbitrary statement. I do not own an F430 but do have experience with a few products of Maranello. Also which 911 Turbo - 930, 3.3, 3.6. 993, 996 etc ???people have said to me that the f430 is a better car than the 911 turbo. i own both those cars and i assure you the 911 is the better car. post on your thoughts.
I have actually had the exact opposite experience having driven both several Ferraris (F40, 550, F355, 456 GT) and a pair of Porsches (993 C4, 993 Turbo)on the Autobahn all at over 230 kph. All the Ferraris felt very planted where as the Porsches were more nervous (and you also have a much greater sensation of speed). The only Ferrari that felt a bit light was the F355 but I attributed this more to the overly assisted power steering.the last porsche i had was a carrera 4S it was carved from stone and is alot more stable on the highway compared to the ferrari. i feel that the ferrari is alot more twitchy over 110 mph and that goes for my other ferrari too the f355 spider. .
strongly disagree!I dont know, but I think never a ferrari was so well built like the F430, and it never will.Its an expression of 5 years continuing F1 titles.
...unfortinatelly, its for the track.
The F430 is a great car but it has almost become a "No soul, low soul" car as you put it. Check out the F430 video I posted, you'll notice the car has all sorts of room and is very comfortable. To be honest, it feels like an amazing sports car, but it just didn't feel like an exotic sports car.
Good point. It (F430) is still an exotic, just very refined like a Porsche.hm.. if you say that, you should agree that 599's, murci's, G's, Vanquish's are not Exotic b/ of their interior, shouldn't you?
=)Good point. It (F430) is still an exotic, just very refined like a Porsche.
What I am trying to express is hard to put in words. I can say from experience sitting in a Murcielago you feel like your in an exotic. You wouldn't want to drive it daily but you would the F430.
Visibility in the Murcielago: zero, the rear window is about 10 inches tall and then you are looking through slats over the engine. The seats are awkward and it is just bloody uncomfortable after about an hour or more. I'll post a video I made next week of the car.
