Tuned Ferrari F430 Spider Wants To Be An FXX-K When It Grows Up

For some, a manual Ferrari F430 in perfect factory form would be a dream car. Others, however, might beg to differ. Like the owner of this example, for instance.

The car, spotted in an underground parking lot in South Korea’s capital Seoul and brought forward by Autogespot, features a lot of exterior updates that, as far as we can tell, are intended to mimic the looks of the track-only FXX-K special.

Starting at the front, this F430 Spider has a different bumper with canards. The headlights have been partially covered, and the stock side skirts have been replaced with new ones, while there are also bulky rear fenders, widened bumper, and darkened taillights.

Sticking with the FXX-K theme, this Italian supercar features a couple of triangular rear wings as well. The updated exterior ends with the silver and black stripes and a pair of new wheels that, unfortunately, don’t look that nice in red. As far as tuning jobs go, however, the front end is convincing, while the rear is not as successful as it tries too hard. And did we mention that those alloys look terrible in that color?

We don’t know if this tuned Ferrari has any mods inside, as the cabin is only partially visible in these pictures, nor if that awesome naturally aspirated 4.3-liter V8 has been modified to deliver more power. Nevertheless, even in stock form it pushes out 490 PS (483 hp / 360 kW) and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque, and rockets the F430 Spider to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds and up to a top speed of over 310 km/h (193 mph). Plus it makes an absolutely thrilling sound that is nowhere to be found in Maranello’s current V8s.
