With so much details, it can only mean that it's the "official photos".

Lovely. I like the interior and the rear. The Ceramic brakes are optional though. Wonder when I can get one!

very nice, but it's more like a very good tuned 360 than a complete new one... (low development budget?)

These are official photo's so I read.

ps I like the mirror...

Hmm, interesting, for sure. I still can't make a sure judgement on the car until I can actually see it in person, but it does look quite similar to the 360 in some aspects.

The engine does look different, yet similar, so this does appear to be the new car.

Not sure if I want the name of the car all over it though, but I guess, t's one of those snob appeal things for me, you either know what it is or you don't.

Very nice evolution of the 360 ! Much prefer it to the 612 development off the 456.

Do you think God stays in Heaven because she is afraid of what she sees down here?

Owner and Operator of a 2000 Jeep Wrangler. A few mods here and there... but just you wait and see what I have in store for her...

Here is the write up on the F430 from the Ferrari owners site:

The F430 hails the arrival of a new generation of Ferrari 8-cylinder engines. The new model takes Ferrari’s extraordinary achievements with aluminium construction technology, which started with the 360 Modena, to a whole new level and offers a series of extremely significant innovations directly derived from the Prancing Horse’s Formula 1 single-seaters.

Two of these innovations are world firsts for production cars: the electronic differential (E-DIFF) initially developed by Ferrari for its F1 single-seaters but now adapted to the needs of a high performance road car, and the steering wheel-mounted commutator switch (better known to the Scuderia’s drivers as the “manettino”) which the driver uses to select the integrated systems governing vehicle dynamics.

The other main characteristics of the new Ferrari F430 are its light, compact 4,300cc 90° V8 engine which punches out 490 hp to achieve a specific horse power of 114 bhp/litre, guaranteeing the new Ferrari berlinetta a weight-to-power ratio of 2.8 kg/hp (dry weight); a braking system with optional carbon-ceramic discs for optimal efficiency even after severe and prolonged braking; a Formula 1-derived gearbox that cuts gear shifting times to 150 milliseconds, allowing the driver to make the very most of a truly high performance car (0-100 km/h acceleration in four seconds flat, a top speed in excess of 315 km/h); and lastly, sophisticated aerodynamics that adopt the very latest racing developments, especially in terms of the flat underbody and big rear diffuser to increase downforce.

Official launch is September 25th at the Paris Motor Show.

Enjoy :lol:

Front part of the bumper seriously has to go. Doesn't look good at all. F430 on the mirrors may be a bit overkill. The rest is coming together very nicely.
