Hi my first post on this forum. I am gonna buy an used F430 in 1-2 months. I just wonder what speed can a F430 reach? In some tests it is tested as 317km/h. Official Ferrari brochures says 316+ km/h. So here is the confusion for me. My ex-car was a 996 Carrera 4S tiptronic. Its official max speed is 280km/h but on highway at Turkey i go for 301 km/h while little down hill but long distance and with little easy curl and a passenger with me. So i passed 21km/h the factory specification with the crap porsche tiptronic 5 speed transmissions. So is it same with the Ferrari or is it same as original. I saw a 996tt go for 328km/h even it original is 305km/h So What is max speed for a F430 even down hill or long straight road etc. Anyone help or ideas??
