What Car? says

5 out of 5 stars

For Logic-defying grip and amazing performance

Against Hard to come by, and incredibly pricey

Verdict A bit of F1 experience brought to the road

Go for… F1 paddle shift

Avoid… None

Ferrari F430 Coupe
  • 1. The electronically controlled differential means the F430 has tremendous amounts of traction
  • 2. Go for the clutchless paddle-shift gearchange that gives you more of that all-important Formula One feel - and more performance
  • 3. The F430 will return an average fuel consumption of 15.4mpg - if you're gentle
  • 4. Performance from the mid-mounted 483bhp 4.3-litre V8 is effortless
  • 5. As long as you have the car properly (and expensively) serviced, an F430 should be reliable
