360 Modena is 1999 car...Its different story. In the same way you can use 1999 Porsche 911 or so...1999 911 also isnt very fast in comparison to the newest sport/supersport car.

It was different times.

But F430 is still good and fast car. Even nowadays.

True.
Ferraris are usually over-done. Technology, materials, development costs - it rise their price very high, and then make it pretty high running costs too.

New Ferraris usually are perfect when they come to market (like 458, 430). So they are great as new cars, and then also good as old car beceause they are great collectionable cars.

But those few years models - like 430, 360 are loosing with modern perfomance sports cars. And are innormous expensive.

What a poor argument, maybe u should said that u're paying for more power,torque, a lighter body, a quicker transimission, indeed a faster car. But not just saying that it's only a Ferrari, both use really good materials into their cars.
