2007 Ferrari F430 review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview
Ferrari unveiled the successor to its 360 Modena at the 2004 Paris Motor Show. The new two-seat sports car was substantially more powerful. It’s offered in both coupe and convertible form. Little has changed for 2007.

Several innovations were derived from Ferrari’s Formula One racecars. Two of them were “world firsts” for production cars: the E-Diff electronic differential, which optimizes traction, and the steering-wheel-mounted commutator switch, which controls the vehicle dynamics systems.

A rear-mounted 4.3-liter V-8 generates 490 horsepower, which results in a weight-to-power ratio of 6.2 pounds per horsepower. According to Ferrari, the F430 can accelerate from zero to 62 mph in 4 seconds.

Exterior
Largely hand-built in Italy like other Ferraris, the F430 features an aerodynamic shape that incorporates contemporary competition technologies — specifically, a flat underbody and a large rear diffuser, which increases downforce. Upper and lower air intakes sit to the rear of each door. An enormous, nearly flat back window allows the V-8 to be seen from the outside. An optional braking system uses carbon-ceramic discs.

Often finished in traditional red and devoid of brightwork, the F430’s body barely clears the ground. Four round taillights sit high on the deck, flanking a relatively subtle spoiler. Four exhaust outlets poke out near the bottom edges.

Built on a 102.4-inch wheelbase, the F430 measures 177.6 inches long overall, 75.7 inches wide and 47.8 inches tall. The front track width is a sizable 65.7 inches. Behind each seat in the F430 Spider convertible are long nacelles that trail into the rear deck alongside the engine’s viewing panel.

Interior
Ferraris are known for snug cockpits, and the F430’s two-passenger space is no exception. A red engine start button is installed, and paddles alongside the steering wheel control the operation of the available F1 gearbox.

Under the Hood
The F430 holds a 4.3-liter V-8 that develops 490 hp at 8,500 rpm and 343 pounds-feet of torque at 5,250 rpm. Either a traditional six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed sequential manual can be installed. Ferrari claims the Formula One-derived sequential gearbox cuts shift times down to 150 milliseconds.

Safety
Antilock brakes, an electronic stability system and traction control are standard.

4.1

This is a TRUE enthusiast car.

It may not be the most comfortable or "Cool" in the summer but you will absolutely not find a more fun car with a Ferrari badge for the money. Not a typical DD unless you are that hardcore and if that's you then you found a new pony for the stable.

4.4

This car is in a class of its own.

If you want a fun , exciting sports car - this is it. However, budget accordingly. This is NOT an inexpensive vehicle to own, and maintain.

4.7

Surprisingly reliable and able to be driven daily!

Best car I've ever had. Super reliable for any car. Turns heads. Exhilarating to drive even at low speeds. Feels and sounds like having a rocket strapped to your back. Ferrari breaths life into driving.
