If you’re looking to not crash your car, I would suggest not driving super fast on a road with slow traffic and idiot drivers. This Ferrari F430 driver missed that first lesson, but he did a good job dodging disaster anyway.
I remember when Ferrari released their hard-lined successor to the 360 Modena. The older car was looking very blobby and very ‘90s by the mid 2000s, and the 430 seemed every bit the modern and incredible push into the 21st century. But a decade on, things seem different.
Remember that Top Gear episode where they took three supercars through an ultra-narrow parking garage? Yeah, this might just be worse.
Just imagine you, all handsome, in your retirement. I bet you're feeling quite proud of yourself. Worked your way up, with nothing but your bootstraps. Had a career. Family. A retirement home in Boca. Now, a Ferrari. Red. Yeah, that will look good. Until it goes up in flames.
Let me just say that Ferrari burnouts are among the rarest burnouts in the world, so I am extremely happy to see this F430 droptop smoking its rear tires. But there's just one problem with it.
I love Ferraris. And I also love DSMs, especially the 3000GT, that under-appreciated beast of a car that was king of all the Mitsu-Chrysler collaborations back in the 90s. So it follows that if you put the two together somehow, the end product will be amazing, right?
Just like how people try to have the first baby of the New Year, other people try to get recognized for having the first Ferrari to explode on its own.
Remember the first time you saw a Lamborghini? A McLaren F1? A Bugatti Veyron? Most of you probably reacted like this woman did to the apperance of a Ferrari, internally. Can we blame this apparently Spanish woman for externalizing feelings we also have?
Ferraris are sometimes fragile machines that roast engines as well as they roast tires. It takes a bold owner to do a burnout in one. That or you just have to bet him $500 that he won't do it.
Driving terribly isn't limited to owners of beat up old Cavaliers, as one Jalopnik contributor found out driving north of Ft. Lauderdale when he spotted a Ferrari F430 swerving in and out lof lanes. Drunk driving or terrible driving? You be the judge.
"Prepare to be at the center of attention when you rent this car" reads the description on exotic car rental company Gotham Dream Cars' page for the Ferrari F430 that killed a motorcyclist when the two collided head-on yesterday morning in New Jersey.
This Ferrari F430 was destroyed beyond recognition this past week on a coastal highway outside of Athens, Greece and the unbelievable post crash wreckage is almost hard to believe.
While we've seen no shortage of supercar drivers hellbent on destroying their expensive automobiles, it seems sometimes potential exotic car owners don't even wait until they own the car to crash them. This Ferrari F430 carnage occurred while during a test drive in Kila, Malaysia recently.
The Ferrari F430 is the Ken Griffey, Sr. of Italian sports cars: great in its day but overshadowed by its offspring. No more. This Houston F430 decided to steal the 458 Italia's best move and self-immolate for us on camera.
Give credit to Brazilian race car driver Allam Khodair, who single-handedly pushed his Ferrari F430 back onto the track during last year's GT3 Brasil Championship. He's like a kitten hanging from a branch. Hang in there, Khodair!
