If you wanted to be subtle, the 2006 Ferrari F430 Spider is not the car for you. Since its debit in the 2004 Paris Motor Show, the F430 is sleek, sexy and hypnotizing. You cannot help but pause and visually inhale when such a rare creation crosses your path. As successor to the F360, the F430 became the third fastest Ferrari ever made behind the Enzo and 599 GTB. Its 4.3 liter V8 engine combines a Ferrari and Maserati design allowing a top speed of 197 mph and an acceleration of 0-60mph in 3.5 seconds. With its leather steering wheel under your grips, all you need is a long stretch of road and a holiday for the highway patrol.

With a mid-mounted engine that in itself is a pleasure to behold, the masterful ability to accommodate a convertible top while preserving the curvaceous lines of the F430 is readily apparent as you invite the outdoors inside. In a 20 second acrobatic ballet, the top neatly hides away between the seats and engine in a two-stage folding action. And while fully sampling all 6 speeds, the aerodynamic design keeps aberrant wind noise at bay even with the top down. Cruise in luxurious style or challenge your skills on the road ahead. Either way, the F430 will leave you with a smile on your face and a satisfaction in your soul. Indulgence never felt so good.
