hard-top ferrari, woohoooo...... very impressive, the ferrari mark-up will probably make this $150,000 grand car $200,000, a little too pricey for now.

Wouldn't we all, a brand new ferrari for $150K, sounds too good to be true.

The Ferrari F430 is IMHO the best Ferrari ever made. Of course, I love the Enzo - but it is a pipe dream for nearly everyone. The F430 is a goal that is within reach if you really wanted one.

To be honest, while I love MB, I have always seen it as a stepping stone to a true modern exotic. Don't get me wrong, every time I drive my 55 I fall in love all over again. But I just can't shake my overwhelming desire to own a car with the prancing pony or the raging bull on it.

If I had not purchased my 55 and spent so much on modifications less than a year ago, I would be in the market for a Ferrari or Lambo. I used up all of my spousal currency with my 55 though, so it will have to wait. Now if that plan to win the lottery would just pan out.

Just the other day I saw a 2004 360 Modena Spyder for sale locally for $160K - Rosso Corsa with 3,000 miles and in mint condition. My wallet started to burn a hole in the back of my pants. It looked brand new.

Still dreaming . . .

Sorry to say this B55, Modena's are the worst Ferrari they are slow and is a small step in performance compared to the F355 which is the Second best Ferrari to me after teh all Mighty F40.

I would love to get a F430 someday however a F420 upcoming Dino is the most realistic option or you could say alternative, Id rather spend that 280,000 usd in Trading "Stock Exchange" then you will benefit , The money you invested might increase via the price of the shares say in 2-3 years.

Below is the best example of an F430 , I have seen if I wanted one its going to be in this colour even the Upcoming Dino

Ive heared that the upcoming Dino will be priced around 145-155 thousand dollars, B55 we raced a F430 with a Stock SLK55 and we were in a distance of 1 1/2 car behind thats good for a 360hp SLK compared to a 480hp lighter Ferrari.

My god the F430 Sounds Truly Race inspired, Love the Whine of the 4.3 V8.
