At the Paris Motor Show in 2004, Ferrari unveiled the successor to the 360 Modena: the Ferrari F430. The F430 would become one of the most highly respected automotive creations for the next five years until 2009 when it would be replaced with the Ferrari 458 Italia. The F430 came in three commonly known variants: the F430 Berlinetta (coupe), F430 Spider, and the F430 Scuderia. Additional variants exist that are not as common: The F430 Challenge, F430 GT2, F430 GT3, and the F430 Scuderia Spider 16M.

Growing up, I didn't hang posters of the Backstreet Boys, Leonardo DiCaprio or 2pac. My room was adorned with four posters that I still remember vividly. The Lamborghini Countach, Ferrari Testarossa, Nissan Skyline R34 and the McLaren F1, you know, the orange one with the wooded backdrop that we are probably all too familiar with. It's been many years since I've truly fantasized about owning one of those rare exotics, even though by today's standards they would be considered fairly "cheap" relative to their original MSRPs. So what would I hang on my wall right now? It wouldn't be the Bugatti Veyron – that would be almost too predictable, nor would it be the Mercedes-Benz SLS – that would be too cliché. The Nissan GTR would be a good option but then that would be too practical. What car could I hang up today that I know would be cutthroat, nosebleedingly awesome like the cars of my youth? I haven't been able to find a car for years, until now: The Lamborghini Sesto Elemento.

As clearly noted in our video review of both the 2003 BMW M5 and the 2010 BMW M5, I have a thing for M5s. I've driven the Mercedes Benz E63 AMG, its closest competitor and I would take the BMW M5 over it any day of the week, especially the weekend. In fact, if I had $150,000 to play with and had my choice of any car, I would take BMW M5 over anything under that price ceiling - although the Mercedes Benz CLS 63 AMG is very tempting.
