The sound engineering of the F430 is incredible. In the F360, a valve would open above 3500 RPM and you would get the full Ferrari wail. In the F430, you can open the valve with the amount of pressure you build up with your right foot.

It is very addictive (and not very good for your mileage). But, next to the exhaust wail, it has a lot of extra sound-tracks that make the car sound like a 70's F1 car, gorgeling, popping, backfiring and all sorts of other sounds, and it is soooo loud.

I do not understand how they got this system through the sound level regulations. A Tubi (or other after market exhaust system) is not necessary at all. A huge improvement over F360

Wow

Looks like tremendous fun, Rijk. My neighbor just picked up his new 430 this week too. His is white, which I have never seen before on an F430. It is, ah, interesting. I do like the 6-speed though. We plan some backroad dueling soon. While you could argue white is at least different from retail red, there is justice in a red Ferrari. They just look right. Scuderia shields take a lot of heat from vintage Ferrari owners, but I think they are a good fit on modern Ferraris. I also happen to like the Azzuro Metallico color on vintage Ferraris. I almost bought a 67' 365 GT 2+2 in that color last year. How did that Subaru get in the picture with such august company?

The Subaru is from the piano tuner.

I've never had a red Ferrari until this one. My silver 360 spider looked very dull next to the Spyker, so I decided to go with red. However, I could not do the "Resale Red/Tan" combination.

I'm generally not impressed with Silver, though Porsche has a brilliant silver that is compelling. When I looked at Ferraris before I bought the Spyker, I saw one that was dark grey with tan, and was stunning. Similar to the dark grey on your Spyker, which is a wow.

With the Spyker in the shop to the next few weeks, getting its 2008 spec updates, I'm relegated to drive the other car in the weekends
