    New F430 spy pic

    You can clearly see the new wheels

    Re: New F430 spy pic

    More.

    Re: New F430 spy pic

    Does the brake rotors look really small compared to Modena?

    Rims are 19" now, so the brake discs may seem smaller in comparison.

    ... and the new mirrors.

    I think Ferrari should stop that camouflage-BS now, all people who are interested know how the car will look like.

    Re: New F430 spy pic

    these are NOT the real mirrors,
    I was there on 20/7, and the mirrors look all different, and in the left mirror, there is the inscription F430 (like in the spoiler of the F40),

    Well, I'm talking about the mirrors of the light blue car, NOT the red one. And I'd say these mirrors look exactly the same as those of the cars showed on July, 20th (as well as the mirrors of the car from the very first spy pic).

    Re: New F430 spy pic

    I guess it looks smaller compared to 360cs with 19" and the 15" rotors.

    Weren't larger brake rotors supposed to be the cause (justification?) for larger wheel rim sizes?
    Those wheels make the brakes look "Mickey Mouse".

    Well, I think that is the truth for the new carbon-ceramic-brakes, which are an option (unfortunately), but it isn't necessarily so for the standard steel brake discs.

    Re: New F430 spy pic

    I think we can see the front Challenge grill at the red car peeping through the camouflage in the last pic...

    Re: New F430 spy pic

    sorry, you're right, these mirrors are the same, it'sa pity you can't see the inscription on it.

    By the way, the car looks also very different inside, there is a atractive steering wheel, with a big red 'start button' and a sort of stift (like on the F1 steerin wheel) to change the settings, very beautifull !!

    I'm having mine (normally) by the end of oktober, beginning of november, ....... will tell you about it,

    If you want something to know of what I saw on the 20th, feel free to ask ... (I could'nt take any pictures, except before the anouning of the car by Schumacher,)

    Patriek

    Re: New F430 spy pic

    If I am right Pebble Beach was on the 20th? If yes, tell us ALL about it!

    F430 Oct. delivery? This year?

    According to your name you should belong to the more beautiful gender of the two that are on this planet. Right?

    Re: New F430 spy pic

    Wow, the new wheels look great.
    And when you have 19" wheels, even huge 15"
    brake rotors will look "small", but remember
    the huge brake calipers have to clear the wheels
    as well.

    Re: New F430 spy pic

    Please tell us more about what the interior looks like, the standard one and the carbon optional

    Re: New F430 spy pic

    No not pebble beach, it was 20/7 and it was the preview in Maranello, together with Michael (schumacher), Rubens, Thodt, and the two Luca's.

    Yes late Oct or Nov delivery, THIS (2004) year !!

    I'm male, the name refers to the dog (westy) of mine and that of Schumacher (Jenny)

    there are two versions, one 'metal' look, like the one in the 360, and one with the carbon,
    The interior, is totoly different (more sport) from the current 360, (I had a spider but didn't like it),... like I told before, with a super nice much more adjustible steering wheel, new speedometer, you can chose two colours, yellow, like the CS, or white.

    Re: New F430 spy pic

    Thanks! Which one do you like better, the alloy or the carbon one?
    I heard from somewhere else the speedo's colors are yellow and red, I guess there's white, too? Was the white one from the silver 430? Maybe it's body color

    If you didn't like the alloy panels of the 360, what do you think of the "new" alloy looks of the 430? Carbon package will be an (pricy) option only. And what do you think of the new alloy interior in combination with a carbon dashboard instead of the alloy housing?

    And BTW, the two colours for the rev counter you can choose from are yellow and red.
