    It'll take me too long to type the whole report out so here are a few snippets;
    "...the 430 is so quick it has become one of those rare cars in which you need to pick your moment carefully before opening the throttle fully; a car that eats up straights so rapidly you have to be extremely mature about where and when you deploy full acceleration........
    A little later, up in the hills above Maranello, the 430 gradually begins to reveal more of it's dynamic repertoire- and it's a mind boggling experience all in all.Its steering is so light yet so incisive i found it impossible not to get carried away throught the corner where we took the photos.Its suspension was beautifully-and i do mean beautifully- composed over every surface it was asked to deal with.And the brakes;well, the brakes are just incredible.
    This car is fantastic. Not, perhaps as good on the track as it is on the road,as i discovered an hour later. But remember, despite the way it goes and looks, this is not a racing car. It's a road car. Very probably the best road car Ferrari has ever built........"

    he's a small quote I picked from the 4 car article: carbon ceramic composite brakes - as used on the Enzo and the 360 Challenge Stradale - are an expensive option at around £9500.
