looks more like a dealer introduction or somehting where someone snapped a few shots with his cell cam. One I dont like about the rear, which shows up on the yellow, is the break in the rear...between the light.

I couldn't help noticing how close the performance specs are to the 996 Turbo. Now considering the fact that the 997 Carrera S laps the 'Ring as fast as the 996 Turbo, i can't wait for the 997 Turbo!!

But on a pro-Ferrari note, the car definitely looks good. Though they could have done with less scoops and vents, i would probably order mine in black, so they don't look to scream their presence. But definitely a better design than the 360 Modena.

It would`nt be fair to compare them since they have thier own charm.
But i guess this one rocks better than the 360m.

This car doesn't look good wierdly. I just have a huge problem with the Huge oval ugly ### shaped front air-intakes and the slim as hell headlights. IMO it doesnt hold a candle to the F355 and F40

Awesome pics X-Machine.

Wow! the car looks pretty superior to the 360 modena. Its like a pumped-up version of the 360.

I was mad about a 355, but I found 360 to be a better looker and this to be a better looker than the 360..so for me 430 is the best amongst these 3..but as for F40..it doesnt compare and i think the vents looks awesome..

I love the way ferrari changed their design direction..the new ones are soo much more than the older day ferraris..exceptions always there..

This car definitely looks better than the 360, but, the 355 IMO is something else!

Wowowow..... im very happy!

The 360 was a real dissapointment for me... but the F430, even though it looks exactly like the 360 to the common man just shows how much of a difference small styling cues can make...

Huge improvement over the 360 IMO, but still cant say i love the rear...and this comes nowhere near the 355!!! (im suprised to hear some of you guys saying that!!)

The car looks great , but I somehow feel the front air intakes are a little big, they could have donewith a slightly sleek design of the oval vents of the air intake.
But looking at the posts I feel , everybody seems to like the new vents , that means good job Ferrari

To me the rear of the car is much more impressive than the front
