    So you finally decided to go the CS-way!

    Did you get any information about the car? Are the 525hp confirmed?

    Re: 430 light Pista

    interesting and congrats
    i'm still trying to work out how ferrari can sell this car in USA given the DOT ruling on passive air bags and the undertaking not to sell 430s built after 07

    US is the most important country for Ferrari, probably they will use an escamotage. But i'm not sure because the racing seats are illegal in US.

    of course Ferrari don't HAVE to offer it in US but given how much of their total production goes to FNA, i'd be very surprised if the car wasn't offered. USA share of CS sales was biggest by far

    Re: 430 light Pista

    Congrats.. !! It will be a very nice car indeed...

    Yes Rossi, I have decided to go the CS way,
    well, I had a cs on order, but the 430 came across, so but now it's different, the Pista will be there 2 years before the sucessor of the 430 , that will be there only in 2010, but I think now I will stick to the CS or Pista versions, but you never now

    About the Pista, or Light Pista (I don't like the light in it ..) is almost nothing known, my dealer will kept me updated of course, but as he said, it will be the ultimate 430. (if you are race orientated, of course).
    I really hope they come up with something very special !

    Next month (27/3) I will be in Modena, at the Factory, and of course i will try to find out about it ..

    Re: 430 light Pista

    are there any tech specs for the car, and when it will be officialy shown

    I don't like the "light" either! Only "Pista" or "Pista leggera" would have been far nicer IMO.

    Of course the Pista will be the ultimate F430, but wait until the F430 successor is out, with magnetic ride and other goodies...

    Re: 430 light Pista

    It seem that Manufacturers are shortening vehicle's production life spans shorter by every year....

    Re: 430 light Pista

    Congrats Patriek!
    I think I was the first one on Rennteam to mention the car would be called Pista back in May 2006.

    430 light Pista - "More HP and less weight - go ahead and splurge!"

    How's that for an advertising slogan?

    I am puzzled as well. The biggest problem for Ferrari was the air bag issue. According to them, they were physically unable to comply with the DOT requirements based on the 430 configuration. Thus the promise not to sell the 430 in the US beyond september 2008.

    BTW, I have driven the 360CS often and though a terrific performance car, I did not find it suitable for frequent public road use. It was too raw and honestly, rough riding. No doubt on the track it would have been a blast to drive.

    Re: 430 light Pista

    Perhaps it's allowed due to very low unit volume.. ?

    Yeah - it does sound like the new for a new BEER , doesn't it ?

    Re: 430 light Pista

    congrats patriek good choice!
    as far as US my guess they will bring all the cars before september 08.. 360 cs was one year only in US anyway
    they will put 599 seats or something similar
    the racing seats issue has been dealt with similarly by porsche in GT3's and who wants to get the racing seats buys them aftermarket just like GT3 people do.

    Thanks,
    Knowing how good the 430 is (against the 360) it will be a REAL BLAST ! can't wait till december, it will be a nice Christmass present again (last Christmas I bought myself a MB CL500 daily driver)

    I hope they will make it a very special car !

    that's where you attorney's come in!
    it's not an f430 . . . it's a light pista!
    it's all in the wording!

    that's funny they use a pic of a 911 in it's place!

    Re: 430 light Pista

    New pic taken form Fchat of the 430 Light Pista. This should be the final look of the car's rear.

    Re: 430 light Pista

    I like it but why they don't covered the old exhaust holes

    Don't think so. Concerning the rear bumper it should be the final version. The so called "exhaust holes" are smaller than at the standard F430 BTW, so they did make a change here.
