2008 Ferrari F430 Scuderia – 510Hp & 1,250kg

Due to be unveiled by Michael Schumacher himself at the upcoming Frankfurt Show in September, the Ferrari F430 Scuderia is a no-compromise lightweight version of the F430 Coupe. Compared to the later the Scuderia has undergone a serious diet cutting off 100 kg – 220 lb thus reducing dry weight to 1,250 kg – 2,756 lb while the naturally aspirated 4.3-litre V8 has been tuned to 510 Hp @ 8500 rpm – up from 490 Hp. These numbers give us a weight-to-power ratio of just 2.45 kg.

Ferrari engineers also equipped theF430 Scuderia with a revised F1 gearbox, called Superfast that reduces gear change times to 60 milliseconds, whereas for the first time a new traction control system combines the E-Diff electronic differential and the F1-Trac traction and stability control in a single integrated system. Design-wise, the Scuderia has been “pimped” the Italian way with body stripes, carbon parts, delicious forked gold alloy wheels etc. Inside Ferrari added a pair of racing seats along with heaps of carbon-fibre. -High res image gallery and press release after the jump

The Ferrari 430 Scuderia

Michael Schumacher will officially unveil the car at the Frankfurt Motor Show

The new Ferrari 430 Scuderia will join the road-going V8 line-up alongside the F430 coupe and the F430 Spider. The 430 Scuderia is a truly high-performance 2-seater berlinetta which demonstrates how Ferrari’s Formula 1 know-how is carried across to its production cars.

The new model is a special series based on the F430 and is aimed specifically 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.

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 standard F430, and to the naturally-aspirated 4308cc V8’s 510 hp at 8500 rpm.

Superb performance both on and off the track is assured by a series of cutting-edge solutions. There is the latest F1 software – Superfast – which reduces gearchange times to just 60 milliseconds, and 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.

Vehicle dynamics, control and performance thus represent the zenith of Ferrari’s achievements in terms of developing road-certified sports cars. The 430 Scuderia will be officially unveiled by Michael Schumacher on September 11 2007 at the IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt.
