2006 Ferrari 430 preview Review, Pricing, and Specs.

2006, Ferrari, 430 preview

Ferrari is the epitome of a prancing racing machine that hasn't been gilded. Ferrari's V-8 490 horsepower berlinetta does 0-60 in a horse-hoofing stomp of 3.5 seconds.

In commemoration of its past 50 years in the United States Ferrari opened a showroom - not a dealership - on Park Avenue. The showroom is more of a museum, not a dealership. Maybe they should call all Ferrari dealerships museums.

The F430 replaces the 360 maranello with a bigger engine and more technology. It weighs 3,197 pounds and has a wheelbase of 102.3 inches. An industry first for any production car is a steering wheel mounted paddle that controls the suspension settings.
