Vs. F430

I had a play with one of these tonight.
He led the way and I followed. Nothing in it up to 15*, M5 was the stronger after that.

He definitely won the noise battle but the M5 proved how strong it is in a straight line.

I know there is a video of a scuderia spanking the M5 but this was a standard F430.

Great fun either way

Interestingly the M5 also has the same ring time as a 430 which tells me you should easily beat a 430 in a straight line.

And I would bet the 30th anniversary car would beat the Scuderia.
