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."

OMG! What an incredible experience! All staff were so professional, friendly and helpful. Upon completion of the front end safety presentations and considerations around use of the track, the program transitioned to the track with some seriously good mentors. These guys are good!!! Don't kid yourself, they are really good! I asked to be pushed for each of my four cars and each mentor delivered! The cars.... well they truly speak for themselves. Seriously, if you are a even a bit of a speed freak, there is no possible way you want to pass up an opportunity here if you are ever able to attend. I will so be back again!

I could not have been happier with my experience. From beginning to end was absolutely amazing. I do want to point out how pleased I was with my instructor ***. We had an excellent rapport and he was on point when it came to my instruction. I improved a ton during my session. I have in no way lead a typical life. I rode motocross for a long time. Have done more than a few HPDE. Plenty of drift events. Jumped out of planes and helicopters in the military. Sniper team leader in Afghanistan. A world of bad that comes with a list of things that sound fun. After all that I turned into a 16yr old kid all over again smiling ear to ear like the first time I floored my moms minivan. I don't know if I made a point in all of this or not. Bottom line is *** was *** rad and I firmly believe he was a key factor in why I had such a good time.

My sons booked an Exotics Racing experience in Las Vegas for my 60th birthday. I was to drive the Ferrari F430 and the Lamborghini Gallardo. Driving these cars was a thrill. The Exotics staff is very friendly and the facility is great. I liked the fact that they let you examine and sit in any of the cars in the lot. They have a number of options to drive or ride as a passenger. One more check off my bucket list...

Booked a Ferrari while in Vegas for my 30th birthday. Great experience! Was torn between this & outright renting a Ferrari for a half day & feel I made the right choice! They have all the cars set up in the pit area and invite you to check them out up close, take pics & even sit in! My instructor was very professional & asked all the right questions to understand my personal skills & comfort level with the car. They really do push you to drive the cars like they were intended & NOT to slow you down or tell you to take it easy! He encouraged me to push it as much as I could handle and you really do get a feel for what the car can really do! The course was great, 7 turns with a bit of everything you'd expect from a professional road course. Even my guest felt compelled to try a ride along & she absolutely loved it! It is a bit pricey, & 5 laps is just barely enough to get a true feel for the course and car, but well worthwhile. Will definitely be back next time in Vegas!!!

I must say I could not keep the smile off my face because of so much Joy I had with my driving experience. I will definitely be back with many friends, as this experience completes an item on my bucket list.
