270km/h drive in Ferrari 430 Scuderia!
I went for a ride in a good friend's Ferrari 430 Scuderia at the Monza track during a private Ferrari event. The video shows a couple of laps and fun with some other Ferraris, in the main straight the video focuses on the speedometer touching a speed of 270km/h (170mp/h) in 6th gear!

Ferrari F430 Scuderia--Test Drive Video Review with Chris Moran from Chicago Motor Cars
Another amazing supercar from Chicago Motor Cars...a 2009 Ferrari F430 Scuderia with only 2K miles! Presented by Chris Moran from Chicago Motor Cars
The Ferrari doesn't triumph because it coddles its occupants—it lacks many of the features one would demand in a Chevy Aveo. Its windows, for example, don't go down. And the extra cost of the 430 over the Audi—nearly $140,000—doesn't do it any favors. It wins because it provides the definitive supercar experience.
Every piece of the Ferrari seems to have been thoroughly considered, engineered, and tuned by people whose wants and needs are harmonious with our own. Start with the reactive and tactile steering that never fails to relay information through the steering wheel. Subtleties such as a seating position so close to the front axle aren't noticed until you move from the Audi to the Ferrari. We're not talking about the relationship between the pedals and the steering wheel, which is nearly perfect. In the Ferrari, you sit closer to the front of the car, as if you're perched over the front wheels. The benefits are improved forward sightlines, which make the car easier to place in corners, and a greater sensitivity to what's happening at the front tires' contact patches. It's a subtle difference but one that gives the Ferrari an advantage.
Both cars have carbon-ceramic brakes, but the Ferrari's gently scrub off speed in a more progressive manner. Even the six-speed automated manual gearbox, with its steering-column-mounted paddles, works better than others we've driven. Depending on throttle position and engine rpm, shifts can be nearly luxury-car smooth or so snappingly quick that we half expect to see metal chunks lying under the car when we stop. (We checked; it never happened.)
Certainly the engine isn't fearful of abuse. Nearly a liter down in displacement, the Ferrari engine is just 22 horses short of the Audi V-10. But with a burden of only 3069 pounds to toss around, the Ferrari was able to match the Audi's 0-to-60-mph time of 3.5 seconds. At higher speeds, the Ferrari gradually makes up for its lack of all-wheel-drive traction and shows off its superior power-to-weight ratio of 6.1 pounds per horsepower. At the quarter-mile, which comes in 11.6 seconds at 127 mph, the Ferrari is traveling 5 mph faster than the Bavarian. The Ferrari is roughly 600 pounds lighter than the Audi, and that lightness infuses the Ferrari with a more responsive feel than the Audi has.
At least some of the mass advantage of the Ferrari is from the lack of sound insulation, and even carpeting. Exposed welds, intricate castings with foam dimples, and the bonded floor panels are all visible from the driver's seat. Consequently, pebbles thrown into the wheel wells are audible, as is the scrubbing sound of brake pads skimming across the 15.7-inch front carbon-ceramic rotors—stops from 70 mph are among the best in the automotive world, at 143 feet.
And yet, despite its spartan accommodations, we can't gripe about a lack of refinement. Ride quality is slightly stiffer than in the Audi but never abusive. The race seats looked like they might have us squirming uncomfortably. But even though they lack the fine adjustments and leather lining of the Audi's, they pamper and are comfortable for longer periods of time.
