i love the F430's rear but im not sure about its front. im going to wait & see it in real life to give them both a fair comparison. as per performance & looks, for the time being, i'll take the Gallardo.

The Gallardo has 492bhp, I don't know why everyone always rounds it up to 500.

They aren't direct competitiors - Ferrari would like you to think the F430 is some sort of race car, whilst the Gallardo is supposedly a 'usable' supercar, with four wheel drive to make it an all-weather driving tool.

Figures are one thing, but I don't think that 0.1 of a second would ever be noticeable in everyday situations, and you are not likely to be driving at top speed for a lot of the time, so the figures are not really important.
0-60 times are governed by a host of variables, so 0.1 second could be lost by reaction times alone.

What's up with this new craze? Did you notice that both cars are very similar. Not only in performance but also in design. Both of their tail-lights are positioned high at the back. Even going around the top corner. Also, both of their front lights are narrow and long. The Ferrari Enzo shares the same features. Anyway, I would take the F430. It's newer and I love Ferraris. I loved Ferraris since I was 5 years old. I watched those Formula 1 races and I always wanted Ferrari to win.

its understandable for them though to have the tailights mounted high, the cars sit so damned low to the ground you wouldnt see them if they were any lower

my vote goes to the lambo, i dont think that this ferrari is anything special, of course when ferrari makes anew ca rit is going o look like no other ferrari before .

the lambo might not be as fast but who cares you are never going to get that speed out of it anyway. i actually like tha lambos looks better than the ferrari

hmmm...

i'd go for the lambo, it's more apealing to me in design terms, althoug i like the ferrari's rear wheel drive, if the lambo was rear wheel only it woud be much better.

In my opinion ferrari design is as become "bad" since they lauched the 360, i love the 355, and i still prefer it to the 360, the 612 was a complete desapointment, this 430 is starting to look good, but still far away from what i expected from them. i hope the new 575 "saves" the ferrari design.

JUST MY OPINION...

The F430... 'cause it's a Ferrari.
But to be really sure about my possible choice I want to see some track tests, real acceleration figures and more.
Then we all can decide which car is really faster.

Lambo, because I'm sick of ferrari fanboys. Also, what is it with ferrari and bastardizing all their nice looking cars, first the 456, then 575, now the 360, all the replacements make me wanna gag.
