This is a 2007 Ferrari f430 spider and it's just. An excellent car it's a lot more reliable than most older Ferrari models and you don't have to remove the engine to service it it's also a lot faster than. Most older Ferrari models as well but it's a lot cheaper than most newer Ferrari models which can really cost a fortune this thing is a great value and it's a great bargain for a Ferrari and today I'm gonna give you a quick review of it I've borrowed this 430 spider from CNC motors which is an exotic. Car dealership here in Southern California that has basically everything just walking into their showroom is better than most car. Shows I've been to you can check out their inventory by clicking the link in the description below and you should because it's truly impressive now I've already reviewed the 430 scuderia on my main channel that's sort of the high performance version of the f430 but I wanted to talk about the regular f430 here on more dug Demuro because this. Car is becoming something of an excellent value and it's very much worth considering if you're interested in buying for instance your first Ferrari consider this the 430 Spyder has just under 500 horsepower and it'll lose 0 to 60. In 3.8 seconds which is monstrously fast even by modern standards but it's not all that expensive this one is listed for around 140,000 dollars because it's a 2007 Spyder model with really low miles but if you're. Willing to look at coupes from the f430 s first year 2005 you can easily find them for around $100,000 or less now that's not cheap of course but it's still less than a third of what a brand-new Ferrari 488 costs and yet this thing has excellent performance by modern standards and it's. A Ferrari so today I'm going to show you just a few of. My favorite quirks and features of the f430 then I'm gonna get behind the wheel and drive it and then I'm. Going to give it a dug score now since this review is here on. More dug demure oh. And not my main channel I'm only going to show you a few of the interesting courts you can check out that 430 scuderia review for a more in-depth look in this way I'm going to focus mostly on the interior now this is a beautiful interior this car. Absolutely gorgeous looks like it has basically no where there's a lot of carbon fibre stuff and there are some rather interesting items what is the fact that the glovebox does not have a. Latch like in most cars instead there's a little square button to the left of the glove box that says open you push it and then the glove box glides ever so gently open so that you can use it it also reveals a very beautiful pen holder with the same gorgeous leather and gorgeous stitching. As the rest of the interior that's an odd touch considering it's hidden and no one will ever see it and speaking of hidden storage items in this car here's an unusual one in the center console there are two switches one is for the roof which I'll show you in a second and the other there's like. A file folder so what does that do will you push it and it opens up this little hidden storage compartment between the two seats I never knew that storage compartment existed in the 430 Spyder but it does and if you have one of these that's where you hide stuff and speaking of hiding stuff how about the fact. That Ferrari has hidden the passenger airbag turning off thing in case you want to put a child in this car over on the side of the dashboard they didn't want to clutter the beautiful interior with that ugly piece so they stuck it over there you can't even see it when the door is closed I suspect. Most 430 owners probably don't even know that they have that there two other odd hidden items in this car the steering wheel looks like a fairly normal steering wheel engine start button is on it the center is rather large but it doesn't contain to the horn instead the Hornets containing these little thumb pads along. The steering wheel rim which is rather odd but not that odd if you know where Ferrari went after this when they put not only the horn but also the turn signals and the windshield wipers and all the other stuff along the steering wheel so you don't have to. Remove your hands from it still very strange to see the horn there another strange item and one that I can't explain this Christ. Power seats on the seat controls you can see the bottom is unlabeled and the sign to control the seat back it has a picture of a seat back on it which makes no sense because when you're sitting in the seat you can't see that diagram even stranger than that. Though is if you look closely it's a picture of a seat back with like an icon of a house so if you push it that way it goes into its house I don't I know next I want to move on to the infotainment system in this car it. Is a very primitive unit almost everybody who has an F 430 removes the factory radio and puts in something more modern but this one still has the factory radio which even has a factory navigation system despite the fact that it's this incredibly tiny screen and it's not even multicolor as you can imagine the navigation system doesn't work. All that well I'm gonna now set it to go somewhere and you can. See exactly what the 2007 Ferrari navigation system was like one funny thing about that infotainment system is that despite the fact that it's clearly very old and. Really limited in its function it comes with an owner's manual this large it is massive in fact the owners manual for the infotainment system is larger than the owner's manual for the entire rest of the car I have no idea why it has so. Much of an infotainment owner's manual because it can't it can't do all that much it's so stupid but nonetheless it's here so even though I said this car was modern. There are obviously some old-school things and that isn't the only one how about the fact that the center control stack doesn't like finish it just stops and then there's this big carpeted hole in the middle until you get to. The center console this was a complaint. I had with the 360 as well I don't know why they didn't just finish the center control stack and have it be one cohesive unit so it actually looked nice but they. Didn't so there's this giant carpeted hole in the middle of your Ferrari it's bizarre two other very old-school items in this car one is the fact that when you put on the turn signals he put. On the left turn signal the left blinker doesn't light up in the gauge cluster instead both of them do same deal the right one both. Light up now in old cars this was common you'd put on the turn signal and it would just let you know that a turn signal is on but modern cars obviously let you know that either your left or your right signals on I actually think. The 430 was the very last car that didn't let you know which specific turn signal it was on that is very old-school. And so is this little screen in the middle of the tachometer that lets you know if a door is open it is a ridiculous interpretation of how an f430 would look if you only had like 11 pixels to. Use in order to show a diagram of this car it's really funny to see that now in the age of LCD screens and entire gauge cluster screens that this was considered modern only 10 years ago and with that it's time to see how. The roof works on the f430 spider and then i'm gonna get it out on the road and drive it wait before I go drive it one other quick thing take a look at what that gauge cluster screen is showing while the top is going up and down once again it's like a 1970s computer drawing of a. Ferrari if someone gave you eight pixels and said make a Ferrari alright drive in the 430 Spyder I gotta say the interior this car still looks pretty cool it's not the most modern with this giant hole in the. Middle which is annoying to me but it is cool it looks really cool the leather is really cool this one has a ton of carbon fiber options makes it look really neat I'm everyone this was a new car I was working at. A Farrar deal at when one of these came out it was the coolest thing in the world and you know it still is a pretty neat Club and the coolest thing about it I think is the fact that it it has. Modern performance and feels fast really good a lot of people tell you they prefer the coop and there's a lot of reasons to prefer the coop one of which is they're just cheaper to get a similar experience but and convertible you get a hearing and this old-school f1 transmission. Is kind of clunky at low speeds everybody generally agrees about that now but at higher speeds it's. Totally fine and what trick is if you let off the throttle while you're accelerating if you let off. The throttle when you pull the paddle to go to the next gear it makes it a little bit smoother and supposedly it preserves your clutch life as well ride is surprisingly harsh last 4:30 I drove was a Scuderia that was really robbed this isn't. As much more comfortable as I was thinking it. Would be this car also handles great it's really well balanced although one of my complaints about this car was always that I felt the steering was a little too late it's kind of prom in general on modern Ferraris since the 355 by the balance of the chassis is absolutely fantastic obviously mid-engine car physics. On your side and it's a really really. Well-balanced car corners flat the downside of that is you do have a rough ride this is definitely not a daily car if you want an open-top daily Ferrari for this price range California the early ones are starting to get into this range and that's also a fantastic car this. Car is more cluttered more exciting than I remember yeah I if 4:30 is now just in the Ferrari world just sort of a used car right it isn't a team classic status get like the 355 is starting to and yet it's not as hot and new like four or five eight five eight eight so. People have kind of forgotten about it. To an extent but you get in again and it's still a it's still a lot of fun it's a really exciting and enjoyable car it has enough power to still be fun by modern standards and so that's the Ferrari f430 spider this car isn't cheap but it's still a really good. Value especially compared to newer Ferrari models and the f1 transmission isn't great and the technology isn't very modern but the price is good the performance is excellent and reliability is really strong this. Is an excellent car and now it's time to give it a dug score and the dug score is 64 out of 100 compared to rivals the f430. Spider finishes exactly where you'd expect it to tied with probably its closest rival the Porsche 997 Turbo and ahead of the Porsche and the weekend categories. But behind it in the daily categories. It's the opposite compared to the 430 scuderia the high performance version of the f430 which. Is. The easy winner. In the weekend categories but the Scuderia so brutal that the spider beats it out overall.
