Drive a Ferrari F430 F1 On a Racetrack!

“To say a Ferrari is fast is like saying that water is wet, but the F430 F1 is so much more”.

This famous quote from Davide Kluzer, Ferrari’s press representative, captures the essence of what makes driving a Ferrari F430 F1 so amazing. From the moment one sits behind the wheel of this pure Italian super pony, they quickly realize the Ferrari F430 F1 is more than just a supercar; the F430 is a work of art. read more >

The Pininfarina-styled aluminum bodywork is reminiscent of the Ferrari racing models of the 1960’s, in particular, the Ferrari 156 Grand Prix driven by the late Phillip Hill who won the 1961 Formula One World Championship. This exterior design captures Ferrari’s extensive racing history down to the smallest details. The front air intakes are considerably larger than those found on the Ferrari F360 (the F430's predecessor). The F430 has raised Enzo-style taillights and a vented rear engine cover, these are only two minute aspects which contribute to the F430 having a completely different look than the previous F360 model.

The cabin of the F430 blends Ferrari’s racing spirit with touches of luxury, suggesting the possibility that this prancing horse could be used as a daily driver. The seats are covered in fine leather that presents an elegant feel with touches of brushed aluminum which compliment the curves of the dash panel. Large, well-placed paddles mounted on the steering column allow the driver to shift through gears in as little as 150 milliseconds, which is less than half the time it takes for the average human eye to blink.

The driver can customize driving preferences by adjusting the console- mounted “manettino,” that loosely translates to mean “little handle” or “little manager.” This rotary knob has 5 levels; each level alters the stability of the vehicle while also changing the level of aggression. The five positions assist the driver by making adjustments to shock valving, shifting speed, and traction-control. In other words, set the level at zero and have full control of the vehicle or turn the level to 5 and the car practically drives itself.

The engine of the Ferrari F430 is a 4.3L V8, derived from a collaborative effort between Ferrari and Maserati. This new engine took Ferrari in a completely different direction than previous variants of the Dino racing program, first developed in the 1950s. This 60 year development cycle between Dino and Ferrari came to an end with the creation of the 4.3L V8. This motor is expected to replace almost all Dino-derived V12 motors. The 4.3L V8 produces 490 horsepower at an screeching 8,500 rpm, illustrating the F430’s high performance pedigree. This allows the F430 to deliver 343 foot pounds of torque, with a top speed of 198 mph. The power plant of the F430 produces a horsepower to liter ratio of 114 bhp per liter. When comparing 0 to 60 times with the F360, Ferrari F430 drops 0 to 60 in just 3.9 seconds, which is 0.4 seconds faster than the F360.

Very seldom in the world of supercars do we get state-of-the-art technology packaged with such an exquisite interior design, superior attention to detail and breathtakingly powerful performance.  Fiery Italian supercar passion creates the welds which hold it all together, engendering debate as to whether this is a racecar, a supercar, a luxurious work of art, or just simply the best car ever made. The Ferrari F430 F1 is definitely a vehicle that poses such a question.

"Since I was a child, I always dreamed about driving a red Ferrari. The 430 has a special place in my heart because it was one of the first Ferraris I ever drove on track and it made me a Ferrari lover! The paddles are big and easy to use, the shifts are quick but still very smooth, and the F430 makes a wonderful noise that just rings through the cabin."

This experience was one in a million for my mother who is 81 yrs old and was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer! All our family pitched in for her to do this and bought the video for her as well. What was so wonderful was she woke up this day and had no pain whatsoever which the day before couldn't get out of bed with so much pain! Any way she was free from pain and always wanted to drive on a race track! She is from Indiana she grew up with the race way out there watching all the time. Well she was so excited about doing this as I said pain free this day she had a smile from ear to ear the whole time and really enjoyed it a lot. All of her friends, doctors have seen this video of her driving. Thank you so much for having this driving opportunity for people like her to enjoy and feel safe while driving! Thanking you for being here to put a big smile on my mom this day !

Driving a Ferrari was a gift to our grandson for his H.S. graduation and send off for his Army induction. It was everything he thought it would be and more. It's an experience that he will remember a life time. I highly recommend it for the exotic car enthusiast..
