M or F?

My wife bought me a "driving experience" for father's day. It's a few laps of a track in either a Ferrari F430 or a Maserati Gallardo.
The Maserati is cool, but the Ferrari is, a Ferrari.
Which would you choose?

Do you mean Lamborghini or Ferrari?
The Gallardo is a Lambo and not a Maserati.

Ferrari,

Both cars will be fun, but when you tell your friends about it, Ferrari is more fun.

What if it is a Lamborghini and not a Maserati? Still going with the Ferrari? [strike]The Gallardo was one of the Batmobiles.[/strike]

[edit] Nope, I'm wrong, the Murcielago was Bruce Wayne's car[/edit]

My apologies, it's a Lamborghini.

I think the Lambo would have more brute force, but a red Ferrari has a certain panache.

Ferrari, go with the prancing horse. Are the laps limited to only 150mph? Still a great gift.

Both are horrible, horrible cars to drive.

Let me help you out. Send the coupon to me and you won't have to decide.

Lucky dog you...pick the Ferrari!

I'd pick the Lambo. I think I've only seen one in real life while I've seen a number of Ferraris.
