    Hello Members

    What are thoughts on the limited edition F430 16M? Is this a legitimate collectable? Love the Scuderia but is the 16M really worth the premium?

    What are everyones thoughts on this?

    Thanks

    Have you driven a 'standard' F430 spider and a 16M? The difference is amazing, the standard car is great, but the 16M feels much sharper, competent, composed while also feeling more refined. I actually feel a greater difference between the F430 spider and 16M than I do between the 458 spider and 458 Speciale Aperta, which could just be the law of diminishing returns at play, but it feels like larger gap and given the fact that is indeed officially limited to "499" units the car will always be sought after, perhaps not the the degree of something like a 599GTO, but again there's less of difference between the 599GTB and GTO than the 16M and standard spider.

    The sound of the 16 M is fantastic! The most spectacular sound of all V 8s IMHO! In the 16 M with the roof down even more enjoyable than in the Scuderia!
