    Spotted in Maranello last week. I was in Italy to pick up my "new" 1980 308GTB, and saw the F430 driving out of the side entrance of the factory. Very pretty!

    Great spotting! Looks hot in yellow. Very quality pics. Did you get to hear it? How'd it sound?

    Congrats on your 308!

    Great Pictures, thank you very much. It looks much better rolling in person than in the Factory Photos.

    The driver was totally at ease with us, he even stopped to give us the opportunity to take a shot. Car sounds brutal! Quality of these pics is so so, taken with a lower resolution. Enjoy!

    Other than the front and the back and the super-sized side scoops, I kinda like it! :)

    Nice shots man, great work....the more I see the F430 the more I love it.
    By the way, sweet 308, it's in mint shape....always liked the 308/328.

    Agree and love the front ... but still not a fan of the back.

    Overall not to bad I guess. I definitely think colour choice is critical ... and red may be not a good colour for it IMO.

  16. Live it you gotta see the back in person its like this with every ferrari I didnt like the 360 on pictues when it first came out and still really dont care for it on pictures espacially the front but it looks great in person.

    Pete,
    I agree. I think silver is the best color that I've seen the F430 in so far.

    Regards,
