This is my first Ferrari and the passion and acknowledgement that one receives on the road can't be measured in any terms. I feel I share mine with everyone on the road and at petrol stations is the real buzz where people come up and ask about the car....it's simply fantastic and the F430 coupe in traditional red and a current model is something that most people downunder never see all that often. I presume it is like that in the states as well. I can't imagine getting that kind of kudos with a Porsche, BMW, Benz or other than maybe a Lambo. The car doesn't have to prove a thing because the marque has done that already in past history. The 430 has a presence all of its own, I guess it's the stance, the height and the width of this supercar! I just love it! Anyone else feel the same? Rob.
