    I must say that sounds and looks incredible. I really cannot wait for this to come out, hopefully I can make this my first Ferrari.

    WOW!!!! Totally not what I expected! A beautiful sound indeed :) like a very raspy, muted Enzo sort of sound. I have never heard a car which sounds like that! Definitely second on my list of exhaust uniqueness below the CGT!

    Not really as surprise since the photos in Autocar this week show a silencer that is much close to the Stradale's in size compared to the 360.

    Sounds great, but I would like to hear it outside when it doesn't echo off the walls.

    Yes good call, it sounds just like a Challenge Stradale. Awesome car.

    I don't like the sound--the engine sounds... sickly.

    Agreed, it sounds more like a 4cyl.

    Where you listening????
    That is a high-reving V8 at its best.

    Sounds great, like a 4 banger, hell no, I have heard to many of those things and this is in a league all its own!

    Dont understand why the maserati wth the same motor sounds like an american v8, but this car has the special f car tone. Ive read several threads in the past, and it seems alot is attributed to engine/cylinder size. Obviously the maser engine is larger than the 360's, but smaller than the 430. Is it all attributed to intake noise?

    A Tubi, Capristo or sports exhaust will complete this stallion. The stock exhaust is not a match for the shape and performance, at least not revving in a parlor.

    if the F430 is anything like the stradale then you can bet the US version will be quite a bit quieter than the euro version. when the first videos of the stradale came out the sound was so loud (good loud) that it made the hair on your neck stick out. but when the US version arrived it was considerably more "tame". i still love the sound of my stock stradale exhaust, but it's a lot different than the first videos. does anybody know if the car in this video was a euro version?

    They took out the 90 degree crankshaft and replaced it with a 180 degree.

    Yup, the Maser has a cross-plane crank that's easy to counterbalance, so it doen't suffer from vibrations but that makes the whole thing heavy, which is why the thing can't rev to screaming RPMs (same story with American V8s). Ferrari V8's have traditionally had flat-planed cranks, which are inherently vibration-prone, so they need to be constructed out of lightweight materials and be very finely balanced. The advantage: 8500rpms of bliss :) ...

    Not everyone likes the flat-plane sound, though, I think there exist people in this world who feel it's too close to what 4-banger ricemobiles sound like, and prefer the throaty growl of Americanish cross-plane V8's... to each his own, I guess. I don't own a Ferrari, but everytime I hear this sound, it sets my heart racing like nothing else :)

    Well even though the engine is based off the engine Ferrari made for Maserati, like 75% of it has been changed or is new. The F430 engine has a flat plane crankshaft and many other changes that allow it to rev higher then the Maserati engine. That's why is sounds so great.
