2008 Ferrari 430 Scuderia

Yet another piece of awesome engineering from Ferrari, based on the Ferrari F430, this car incorporated every piece of luxury and extreme sportiness you can think of, it is the Ferrari 430 Scuderia. This car is aimed at Ferrari's most passionate and sports-driving oriented clients. Development focused on light weight, minimum trimmings and innovative technology. All this to exalt the car's extremely high-performance and ability to thrill the driver.


As this is a performance based model of the original F430, it has major weight cuts. The new car can count on an extremely low weight-to-power ratio of just 2.45 kg per hp thanks to a low dry weight of just 1250 kg - 100 kg less than the F430 - and to the naturally-aspirated 4308cc V8's 510 hp at 8500 rpm. As always inspiration is taken from the Ferrari F1 car, this time it is the F1 Superfast, which is a software designed to reduce gear change, a gear change on this vehicle takes as low as 60 miliseconds.

Also featured in the car is F1 based new traction control which, for the first time, combines the E-Diff electronic differential and the F1-Trac traction and stability control in a single integrated system.

This is a piece of engineering marvel, which is tuned and designed to suit our flavour and likeness. This car takes you the closest to an F1 circuit as possible with the inspired engineering. A lot of hype has been created by this car and its production is much awaited.

The 430 Scuderia will be officially unveiled by Michael Schumacher at the IAA motor show in Frankfurt in September 2007.
