C&D on the Ferrari F430

Discussion in 'European Cars' started by ajzahn, Dec 26, 2004.

  1. it's a monte carlo GTB i believe...
    i admit the f430 is the best car in its class. but i still don't like it. i don't like perfection through and/or an overload of electronics...

    fabulously engineered though, i happilly admit that
  2. it does look better than a 360, but it looks worse than a lot of supercars. Ferrari should not stoop to such low levels as putting round holes in a square bumper and that horribly clumsy and busy back end. They are supposed to be design geniuses!
    The twin grille design is Lamborghini and Ferraris most major mistake. It just doesnt lok as attractive as a single center grille.
  3. ferrari had twin grilles before, i'm sure one of their f1's had it. ('the sharknose')
  4. oops,sorry
    i need a microscope<A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>
    is it a Monte Carlo?
  5. design is subjective, it is about opinions.
    i have to admit it, the F430 is a very fast car, and it MUST beat ALL of its current competitors, otherwise it will be dissapointment. the same thing will happen with the new 997 Turbo, it will beat all the current competitors, and the the modified Gallardo, etc... BUT, as we discussed in the other thread, the C&D performance figures are too good to be true. the same thing with their test of the SL600.
  6. when u will be mature, i will think about getting in a serious conversation with u.
    thank u.
  7. yes.
  8. Innotech, have you ever seen the 430 in the metal?

    If you have, well, we all have our own opinions... if you haven't, STFU
  9. Ive seen a modena in the metal and it doesnt change the fact that the 430 isnt changed much from it and looks terrible still. That front end is disgusting. I dont know how you people can accept that Pininfarina just drew two ovals in front and called it a day.
  10. Dude it's a matter of personal opinion.
  11. well Im so glad personal opinions have destroyed Ferrari then. way to go people.
  12. Dear god...

    0-60mph = 3.5s
    1/4 mile = 11.7s @ 123mph

    Dear god that is a massive improvement in the acceleration department over the 360.... I still can't belive this stallion is running 0-60 in 3.5s! Never thought we'd see an 'entry' level Ferrari doing these times. WOW
  13. It must be very sad not having any sense of style........ I feel sorry for you
  14. i think the f430 looks just fine and performs absolutely great. i now believe 3.5 to 60 is correct.

    that being said, Ford GT > F430. the only thing i can see that i like more about the F430 is that it might be more attainable..
  15. X-out car enthusiast, enter = Ferrari Enthusiast.

    I'm not into tractors, thank you.
  16. You know what's funny, how Ferrari people stick and die for their cars even though deep down in their hearts their pretty sad about how ugly Ferrari's last 3 cars have been...Jesus Christ I mean, Enzo, 612 and now this...muahaha..I guess performence is still something Ferrari still has but their beauty is gone. Thank god people like Aston Martin, Lamborghini and Porsche still make beautiful cars.
  17. F40, F50, 348, 355 and 360 are beautiful cars, don't get me wrong. This is just a joke from Ferrari's spare part bin.
  18. Sorry for not being internet-mature for you.

    Let all sit around chaps, with our smoking pipes while we talk about how glorious our day was.
    Mature Guy 1:"Ah I do say there chap, that's a mighty fine automobile."
    Mature Guy 2:"Why thank you kind sir, I am glad that you agree."
    Mature Guy 1:"Not at all my dear friend, I enjoyed this conversation very much."
    Mature Guy 2:"Indeed."
    Mature Guy 1:"Indeed."

    Although my grammar and punctuation for the most part, unless I'm being silly, is better than most( See quote above for EX: ).

    Maybe learn how to write, speak and converse in English properly, if you want to talk about maturity.

    But then you say; "It's just the internet. I don't need to use proper punctuation or anything like that."

    My point has already been made.

    Final statement: The Italian Purebred Prancing Horse owns the German-Italian mutt-mix Raging Bull.
  19. Pretty sad that a 32 year old would talk that way... Probably drive a Civic that needs a new transmission..

    EDIT: English is not even jj4ever's first language and he can speak it pretty damn well. I bet you can't speak more than 1 language. And don't give me an excuse that just because you live in an English speaking country, it's the only language you know. I live in Minnesota and I speak 3 languages for god sakes. jj4ever is a respected member is this forum for all the contributions that he has given. Don't come here running your mouth like you own this place. People like him and I have been here since the day this forum started.
  20. RCChris, just ignore him. He's a tool.
  21. You're overflowing with maturity. Infact, this entire thread is.
  22. just wait til Porsche releases the new Turbo...then all hell breaks lose <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/pitlane/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    The F430 is a marvelous car though!
  23. Yet it beats an F40 and F50 for less money.
  24. I'm talking about the styling not the performence.
  25. It doesn't look bad, they didn't want to change it too much for fear of alienating their followers.
