If you had to pick just one, which would be better to buy right now: 2011 Gallardo or used Ferrari F430?

I choose C, both...
Honestly though Ferrari and Lamborghini have been duking it out like Honda and Toyota have been, but on a much grander scale.
Being more of a old-school kind of person, I would go more towards the New Gallardo. The first reason is that it will be brand new and cost about $185,000 to $250,000, whereas even a used F430 is over $300,000. Plus the Gallardo has 560 horsepower and 398 foot-pounds of torque, compared to 490 horsepower and 343 foot-pounds of torque by the F430.
Not to mention that in my opinion, the Gallardo just has a more aggressive look to it. The F430 kinda has and Austin Martin meets Jaguar look to, which is pretty, but it that doesn't do it for me. So if you are looking for pure muscle and saving a little money, the Gallardo is the choice, but if money isn't an object and you want some luxury, the F430 is the correct choice.
