    I was driving around in my white '09 Maserati Gran Turismo S and I saw this kid driving an '08 Ferrari F430 (17, maybe 19 yrs old). Note this was at around 2300 hours.

    Soo I pull up to him at a red light and honk and flash my brights. He acknowledges and as soon as the red switches to green, he stalls at the light.

    I lol'd, gave him the finger and drove off.

    Psh. I'd rather wait for him to restart his car and beat him with his pants on.

    You don't need to flip the kid off. If you hadn't, he'd feel like an idiot for stalling. Since you did, he'll just be pissed at you.

    You can get them with the 6-speed gated manual transmission. But of course, if you are wealthy enough to afford a $200k car you will probably also opt for the F1 option which is the semi-auto transmission with the paddle shifters which shifts faster and you eliminate the embarrassment of what the OP described, lol.

    Here's a F430 with a gated manual:

    But the semi-auto is way more popular:

    LOL, I have a funny story like this, yesterday this mustang cobra is reving and flashing his lights at the lights so he blows off once its green, what ever, I am not going to beat him.

    Anyways, hes looking at me, not infront of him, and the car at the next light is stopped, and he slams right into it, lol, he braked enough to prevent it from being a major collision, but it was just hilarious.
