hmmm other cars to consider are
1) The Cayman S [modded with an LSD]
2) Audi TT [looks great for a daily driver]
3) E92 M3 / Audi RS4 [Again daily drivers . Driven the new RS4, AMAZING!!!]
4) Quattraporte [Again "practicality"]

no offense it ain't my money, but thought i would dream out loud...

The E92 M3 is definitely on my list man! Money isn't the thing.. Its the taste and passion..

Hehe.. Of course man,any time.
I wanted to update my friends here that I am in talks with a certain ferrari person to import the F430 with the 700 + bhp novitech kit.. In that event I would cancel the LP for this year and may be then get the Murci SV later next year..
All that is still a may be.. Will update likewise.

the novitec f430 , wow that would be wild , i think in my view the scuderia & lp would be great , servicing the novitec ferrari would be even tougher than a normal ferrari ... still great choice

Drop both the ideas, do a 2009 Gallardo (to be released LP550) and send it to heffner for a TT setup, you will cream your pants after that, Heff is the best tunner period, this FGT and Gallardo were the best cars I have ever seen, stupid fast plus the advantage of usable power because of AWD in the G. Just wait, patience can be a vertu, until you dont mind having the F430 TT and a G TT.

But to have complete taste, well I would take the FGT, send it to England get it converted or even NZ and then have heff do the trick with his 1000hp TT.

If money is no object, there are many things you can do rather than go with off the shelf stuff..

Plus eventually when you really dont know which way to go, i would recommend a Zonda F or whatever the next iteration will be called. Might as well get your name slapped on a dealer for it..

Like Warren Buffett said, "Money isn't everything. But, make sure you've made enough before talking nonsense like this".

I actually was having a chat with Heff for the TT Murci LP.. The power is insane! But service and fuel quality were potential issues.. I was even hunting for the FGT but I wasn't sure if a good LHD to RHD conversion could be done on such a fantastic car ( Until I recently read up on some Aussie firm converting 20 FGT's to RHD)..

The Zonda and koenig are definitely on my list and expect to see them in my collection along side Aston's and the legendary 427 Cobra ( If I can ever find one) in the coming 4 years.!

With a 1000bhp 8.5 litre Twin Turbo.... you cant be wrong when you hit 100kph in 2.5 seconds

@ecks - A novitec kit will void the official ferrari warranty....There is no way ferrari will honour warranty on a supercharged f430...They are known to have heating issues/engine blowups.

Get the scuderia, you will be much happier....
