I think the best thing about the car is that despite being a track car, it doesnt suffer visually. The only place I'm not 100% with is the rear, but everywhere else it looks like a more hyped up F430 but doesnt look cheap/tacky. I love the front bumper and wheels, they are much better than the regular F430

But if you jump in the driver seat, you'll notice it's much much more than just a "hyped up" F430.

The Scuderia is so sweet. I actually like the gold wheel option.

on the contrary, the rear diffuser is too bulky and big (regardless if its "form follows function"), the side vents on the front bumper are ugly, the wheels aren't as attractive as the ones on the standard F430, and the rear brake duct styling looks like it was copied straight from the Murcielago LP640.


...that being said, i could overlook every last flaw i mentioned above for the extra performance...

Right, the F430 Scuderia is COMPLETELY "flawed".

How could they ever make something so "hideous"?

Good thing it has great performance.

On a further note,

Those cars are f-ing NICE!

MUCH better w/o the stripes. Looks a lot cleaner.

Looks like the pictures were taken in Monaco.... where every exotic in the world exists.

What I really love is that new F1 Computer they have in that thing. According to the good folks at Ferrari of SF you're able to mash the gas on that thing in a corner and it'll adjust accordingly to maintain traction at the rear wheel.

If you're buying a 375k sports car why would gas be a concern...
