I never was a fan of the 360 (the 360 CS being an exception). I never liked it even though its a Ferrari. The F430 makes me feel that its is just a cosmetically modded 360 with a few tweaks in the engine dept. lol. But just something about the newer now German Lamborghini's that makes me pick them up over the newer Ferrari's (leaving the Enzo and 360 CS aside ). From a 360 and a Gallardo i'd take a Black Gallardo (Hamann tuned if possible).

Cheers!!!

Gallardo any day.

Plus the Ferrari people need to stop giving modified F430s to automitive reporters. The acceleration is faster than it should be becasue of that.

No offence dippy, but I got a video of two Lambos [Murci and Gallardo] vs two Ferraris [Enzo and a 430] on track on a circuit in japan or something.

The Lambos creamed the 430, and the Enzo just about got away from the Murci. the diff. b/w the 2 ws bout 1/5th sec adv. to the enzo.


cheers!

UMM, I think I've seen the video, and its a 360, not a 430, being defeated.
Anyways, The Gallardo is definitely my pick over the rest.

No dude, the Ferrari is definitely a 430 - you can see the different curves, the front end, and the different sound that it makes. While the 360 is a muted ripping sound, tis one sounds more like a deep-throated growl thats cuting through the air. Also, the front air dam is a definite indicator that it is a 430 - it has two oval air ducts on either flank, and a small eliptical duct in the centre, and the lights are different - though not by much.

Cheers!

P.S. Do send me the link to the site where you got the 360 getting creamed! There's nothing better than a Lambo battering a Ferrari.
Oh, and yeah, I completely agree with your signature!!

Dude, can you give me the link to that vid? If it's Japan it has to be Best Motoring.

Why Go For All That When You Can Get 650 Bhp 911gt3 Tuned By Gambella .it's Also Got The Wider Bodywork Of The Turbo So It Doesn't Look Slabsided I'm Sure It'll Eat Everything Execpt The Enzo For Lunch ,think About It........

Gemballa looks butt ugly, and does not have a molecule of charisma or character about it. It is a tuned Porsche for god's sake, which is so pointless.
It might be faster than an SLR for all I care, but I'm sorry, it dosent stand a chance against F430 or Gallardo. It might be a great tuner car, but no, it cant compete against the real stuff.

Exclamation

Someone call the guys at Brabuss and ask them what they think of the Gambella vs the Brabus McLaren Mercedes SLR.
Answer: Come back when you have somwething that I won't lap ten times in a 10 lap race.

If we're into tuner cars, we've got quite a line up that'll rock the Gambellas... like AMG, Brabus...

Oh, and for pure stocks, lets call Gordon Murrays baby... and the McLaren will BREEZE PAST anything. Absolutely anything... so lets put our toy Porsches away, and lets watch the big boys play...

Peace dudes... no offence to anyone... but the McLaren will take out anything and everything in existance.

Keep the discussion limited to the two cars in the poll - the stock 430 and the stock Gallardo.
