You’ll pay through the nose at every turn - if you actually manage to get hold of a Scuderia - but it’s worth every penny.

Ferrari 430 Coupe quality & reliability

Ferrari 430 Coupe safety & security
Ferrari claims the 430’s structure is so strong that there’s no need to fit side airbags, but we’d still like to see them installed.

Deadlocks aren’t fitted, but UK-bound cars will have a tracking device installed.
