Which used Ferrari F430 coupe should I buy?

Other than choosing a red paint job, there are two choices to be made with the F430. First, you'll have to choose between Coupe and Spider versions. The Spider is a bit more expensive, but when you're talking about sums of money this huge the difference is negligible.

The only other choice to be made concerns the gearbox. There's either the standard six-speed manual, or a clutchless Formula One-style paddle-shift system in the F1 version. Whichever version you choose, you won't be disappointed, but of the two, we'd opt for the F1. The changes are smoother than many similar systems, and the F430 is even quicker with the system installed. Plus, it gives you more of that all-important Formula One feel.
