F430 Scuderia

Of interest .....

"Ferrari took the wraps off its third F430 model, the 430 Scuderia. It joins the F430 Coupé and Spider.

The Scuderia is based on the F430 and is aimed at customers who will use it for track days. (Those who remember the 430’s predecessor, the 360 Modena will remember Ferrari showed that model’s gentleman racer version, dubbed 360 Challenge Stradale. This 430 Scuderia is that car’s spiritual successor.)

And it looks damned mean: Front air intakes are big; a front aerodynamic splitter will help keep it planted at speed.

Development focused on shedding weight to benefit high performance. To that end, the standard seats are gone, as is carpet, stereo and rear windscreen; floor panels are bare, there are lightweight buckets and a plexiglass rear windscreen. The diet sheds roughly 200 pounds from the garden variety 430.

The Scuderia’s 4.3-liter V8 produces 510 hp—up from 483—at 8500 rpm. The F1 Superfast auto-manual paddle-shift transmission reduces gear-change times to 60 milliseconds. A new traction-control system combines the E-Diff electronic differential and the F1-Trac traction and stability control in a single integrated system. The car should hit 60 mph in 3.5 seconds. Top speed is estimated at 200 mph.

None other than Michael Schumacher will unveil the car at the Frankfurt show in September."
