Ferrari F430 Scuderia Proves Its Worth Against Porsche (991) 911 GT3

Ah, just look at these two naturally aspirated beasts going head to head in a rolling start drag race..it’s not something you get to see every day!

Let’s start with the obvious, and talk about the surprisingly underrated Ferrari F430 Scuderia. And yes, it’s called the ‘F430’ not the ‘430’ like many tend to pronounce.

This is a 510 PS surgical instrument, capable of reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 3.6 seconds, which is incredibly fast even by today’s standards. The F430 Scuderia was unveiled at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show by none other than Michael Schumacher and it was praised for its weight-to-power ratio of 2.5 kg/hp, 325 km/h (202 mph) top speed and being as fast as the Enzo around the Fiorano test circuit.

On top of everything else, the F430 Scuderia sounds like the whole world is on fire once you put your foot down (personal experience), and it will snap your head back into yesterday if you’re not constantly aware of how brutal its semi-automatic transmission can be.

The 911 (991) GT3 is a modern-day car, and even though it has less power (475 HP), it will still hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.5 seconds.

The “problem” is that this is a rolling start drag race and even if it wasn’t, the result would have still been pretty much the same.

In case you haven’t watched the video or haven’t figured it out yet, the Ferrari wins – but not by much. These two cars are very close in terms of performance, yet the F430 Scuderia takes it, despite its age.

What can we do other than tip our hats?
