Has anyone heard of the NOVITEC ROSSO F430?
  2 years ago, last edited 2 years ago
The 480 horsepower Nissan GT-R and the 483 horsepower Ferrari F430 accelerates faster than a 572 horsepower Lamborghini Murcielago. LOL.

The FXX isn't even street legal, and if you buy one, it stays at the Ferrari factory until you race it on a track, as awesome as the FXX is, it's still just a waste of money.

Dude, I'm no GTR fanboy, fuck nisasn, I'm just saying that these car's aren't at the same level.If you have a 6200 cc ZR1 you have to put it on the line next to a 6200 cc Ferrari like the FXX and not a grand tourismo 599, but the FXX have 850hp so that will smash the ZR1 anyhow.And the ZR1 does a Quarter mile (~400 m) time: 11.2 (source: wikipedia) not in 10.7.I chose the Carrera GT because it's successor (the Porsche 918 Spyder) only has a 3.4 litre 500hp engine.

Anyone has an idea how much the F1 transmission weights over the manual?

Mmmmmm. I own a z06 my friend has a 430 we have just done 2,000 touring europe. Vette is quicker in general. Uses a lot less fuel carried more luggage including some of mr 430's .got over speed ramps better.... Buy the cars drive the cars then comment

Looks a bit like a Lozenge to me....

I bet your teeth are disgusting.
Lol just kidding. Honestly the F430 is not the best looking Ferrari and only slightly better looking than the Z06 IMO.

If they cost the same, the 430 still wouldn't have 470 ft/lb of torque. I can't say the F430 is all around better. And if the Z06 did cost as much as the 430, I'd just have to settle for the cheaper ZR1.

Don't get me wrong, the z06 is a nice car that performs well, but let's do a reality check here. If the Vette cost as much as the 430, this wouldn't even be a discussion. While they both perform comparably, the F430 is more well composed, more well made, better quality, better looking, and just all-around better.

I've rented a z06 for a day, and while it was fun, I felt like I was driving a fast piece of junk.

If you're a talking purely performance, it's hard to say the Z06 is better. They are in the same class, but that's about all you can say. Laptimes here aren't all from the same test. Only Variano is to my knowledge, and in that test, the 430 used PZero Corsa's (though it's a factory option). What you can take from individual tests is that the 430 is more composed. The Z06 likes to oversteer. The 430 is more nuetral and benefits from more downforce at high speed.

The reason I'd take the Z06 is the combination of performance and design philosophy.

dont get me wrong, the 430 isnt a bad car, but i just think Corvettes are better than the 430. but i wouldnt take a Corvette over Any Ferrari. personally i think the ZR1 is to Monstrous for my taste, i like the ZO6 better.

AeroDynamics decades ahead? umm i do believe the C6 Vette has a Cd of .28, where the F430 has a Cd of .34, so i wouldnt say decades ahead

hence formula 1 cars have neanderthalian aerodynamics. i strongly suggest the moderators to replace the silly verification code with a basic 2nd grade level question (such as "how many wheels does a car have"...) to post a message on this board...

Madam are you saying you'd prefer a Corvette over a Ferrari? A Ferrari for the weekend and an R34 Skyline during the week. Anyway you could always sell the Ferrari after a month and buy a brand new ZR1 and still have change.

feel sorry for ya...

Excluding the wet laptime (because the difference my just be the tyres) the Vette wins on 5 out of 8 tracks that we have times for..... Z06 is a great car but if I was offered either car I wouldn't even look twice at the Vette.
  7 years ago
sophitticated? well, that depends on where you come from. and just because its italian makes it more sophisticated? what a load of shite.and didnt the ZO6 beat the F430 in the slalom? and who cares. the laps tell us all we need to know.
