2009 Ferrari F430 F1 from Italy


Stunning, yet drivable by everyone


Absolutely nothing.

General Comments:

Likely one of the best models produced; one that summarizes how a Ferrari should be.

Handling is superb, the traction control is there, but not over-invasive.

The V8 engine is quite impressive for its elasticity at all regimes.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

2006 Ferrari F430 F1 from UK and Ireland


Brilliant car, flawed, but brilliant


Telephone microphone not working when delivered.

Gearbox fault (changed gear on its own) traced to air in system (bleed valves not tightened).

Intermittent low speed misfire.

Spurious CST warnings which require engine on/off reload.

General Comments:

Car feels much more like a sports car than the 360, with first rate handling, better power at lower revs, and very sharp (non-ceramic) brakes. Loads of grip - feels like a kart.

Disappointing niggles which take too long to fix.

I can only imagine what this car cost. To have ANY problems while having such low mileage is a complete and utter joke, considering cars that cost a mere fraction are more dependable. When Hyundai is producing higher quality vehicles, you can't help but raise an eyebrow. For it to be delivered to you new with problems is unexcusable. Shame on Ferrari!
