    any of you guys see this yet?

    Correct me if im wrong, but wasnt the car that got repoed a F430? and at the end, the president gave him a 360? and wasnt it a 360 in the first one? I cant really remember... I saw it last night and the wheels were different IIRC (430 wheels) and the one at the end was definitly a 360...


    any one?

    I believe you are correct in that in the first movie it was a 360, and in the beginning of the second National Treasure it was a F430, than at the end the original 360....

    Those scenes aren't shot in order. Maybe the 360 was in the shop when the repo scene was being shot. ;)
    (A genuine Ferrari sitting on a movie set? Could be it needed service afore too long. Or maybe somebody left the keys in it, and the prop master couldn't locate it when it came time to shoot.)

    I think this was covered previously with the same conclusion.

    Just last night I was walking by the TV and the kids were just finishing up watching the first movie.... right as the guy drives away in the spider.
    Had to double take, grab the remote, rewind back so I could see the scene again! :)

    If it really was a 360 it does not have a start button he did not engage the reverse gear lever on the center console

    Just saw the movie. Yes, I didn't pay much attention to which model it was, but rims at beginning of movie were F430 rims, and 360 rims at end of movie.

    Thanks for the pics.


    I don't think the average consumer could tell the difference between the two cars, besides the wheels because they look VERY SIMILAR, at least their profile does. Only us, die-hard Ferrari fans, can tell a difference.

    I confuse them from the side. The little 'painted toenail' tail lights on the F430 and the 'ox yoke' front bumper on the 360 are the cues I use.

    So, was the movie worth the ticket price? I remember seeing the Miami Vice film because of the F430 and if I could get a refund of two hours of my life I would... ;)

    Did anybody actually see or even know that Magnum drove 3 different 308’s?
    1, carbed 308 GTS
    1, 308 GTSi
    1, 308 GTS QV
    They even modified the drivers seat to fit him in the car, he’s that tall.
    Only once he drove the car with top on.

    Hope you don’t feel I trash your thread with another movie.

    Happy new year to all of you.

    The movie was actually ok some funny lines and the usual array of special effects I enjoyed it but I like to be entertained at the movies not lectured to or searching for the meaning of life I would never go to see a Ferarri in a movie for 30 seconds I can drive around Dallas and see several if I need to.
