car description

The F430 is sensational. It isn?t as fast in a straight line as some of its competitors, but the blend of drivability, excitement, immediacy, and purity is unmatched. It sings to you and embodies everything we love about Italian cars. The car has a 4.3 litre naturally aspirated V8, still in use in modified and direct-injected form in the current 458 Italia. It's the totality, the greatness of the entire package that mesmerizes here. The Pininfarina-styled aluminum bodywork looks stunning from every angle, the aluminum space-frame chassis forms a rigid base for the suspension to operate with utmost precision, and the 4.3-litre 490hp V-8 revs to a rarefied 8500 rpm. The angry cry of stressed metal and most high-strung exhaust note this side of Formula 1 leave an indelible impression. Weight is 3,200 pounds, but big tyres and some very advanced computer software (including the stuff it took to run a lightning-fast-for-its-day 60ms paddle-shift transmission) meant 0-60 took a mere 3.8 seconds. Every review of the car glowed with praise. Handling was supposedly fantastic. This was the first car that started the now-cliche trope that the electronics actually helped the driving experience
