orgasm on wheels

http://www.edmunds.com/reviews/roadt...irstdrive.1g.*




Quote:
Ferrari started with an all-new 90-degree V8 that uses 11.3-to-1 compression, five main bearings, a flat-plane crank, a dry oil sump and four valves per cylinder. With engine displacement bumped from 3.6 liters to 4.3 liters, you would expect both horsepower and torque to rise and you would be correct. Horsepower jumps to 490 at 8,500 rpm, an increase of 23 percent. Torque grows by 25 percent, with a peak of 343 lb-ft and, thankfully, 80 percent of that is available at 3,500 rpm. Don't forget, these figures come without the use of turbo- or supercharging, though the high-compression ratio does require four knock sensors to ensure safe engine operation. Add to that the continuously variable intake and exhaust valves, the variable intake manifold and the intricacies of the world's first electronic differential for a production car and it's no wonder the F430 requires two Bosch control units to properly coordinate the car's high-tech systems.
Quote:
The electronic differential, or E-Diff as Ferrari calls it, comes directly from the company's F1 racing efforts.
looks like the sig is now changed!!!!!

yeah, but 500hp n/a and ford's GT is making that with a blower. I think that is what they were getting at. the GT is around 150k and this is around 200k. so same general ballpark (for rich people anyway)

yea yea... <sigh> but for 50 grand... yea, it better be super fast. hell, you could buy a Ford GT and a 04 Cobra for that price, and make the 04 cobra a 9 second track car, too, and still be under budget probably.

I am a Ferrari lover too... Cant afford one, but have always loved the styling... I seen a drawing/sketch of the F430 a few years back when searching for Ferrari images and desktop wallpapers... The car looks a bit different than the sketch I had seen and back then it was nothing more than a sketch of a prototype... regardless, its a BAD *** car.

Here are some more links to pictures:

LMAO! *if* you were

I think girls who date someone merely for their possesions are egotistical and just plain dumb. HOWEVER... I wouldn't mind driving the ferrari... maybe I could pick up some hot guys
