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.

Ferrari F430 F1

"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."

Had a blast. First timer, the pre race class and 2 courtesy laps helped a lot. I purchased 7 laps I would recommend more as it takes 4-5 laps to learn the course. Would do again in a heartbeat!

Keeping in mind that this was an introductory package and they had no idea of my racing experience, I was very impressed. Other places advertise as if you're going to run full tilt and drivers ***in high school is more exciting. Not here. If you know how to handle a fast car, go for it. If you want to learn, you can (and will). My best testimonial is that I went to just kill some time in the afternoon and extended for a second and third package before leaving.

This was the best deal in Las Vegas. I saw a guy on the sidewalk renting a Ferrari for $150 an hour and I could not understand why, I saw people doing it though. Renting a Ferrari right next to a traffic jam and construction zones is not sensible. Exotic Racing not only puts you in the seats of all these cars, which me and my wife have pics of, but they put those cars under your foot where they should be. A Ferrari in traffic is a crime against humanity, a Ferrari on track hard on throttle is an affirmation of humanity. And this is where Exotic Racing shines, letting you take these cars hard on throttle into turns as hard as you can. Some friends think the cost was high but I say I have lost more at casinos before and I cannot remember any hand I have had, but I will never forget every lap I did. For less than one months payment on any of these cars they let me hammer it in a way that no dealership on a test drive would allow, nor should. The professional advice is worth the cost alone, I am not used to this environment but they are and they will encourage you. AWESOME. It was a great experience and one I will do every time I visit. BTW, the twin turbo Porsche was the best car.
