Ferrari Creates Newer And Lighter Vehicle

Written by tonks on July 23, 2007

Ferrari 430 ScuderiaFerrari is offering to the world a brand new, lighter version of the F430. The 430 Scuderia is a vehicle that Ferrari lovers are dying to get their hands on. And who could blame them? After all the 430 Scuderia has some of the same features as the F430. It is equipped with the 4.3 liter V-8 engine. Given 20 more horsepower, moving it up to 503.

The 430 Scuderia is around 220 pounds lighter putting it at 3100 pounds. Most think that Ferrari was able to cut the weight by using carbon fiber. Although this theory is a smart one we aren’t completely sure that carbon fiber is the reason.

This new Ferrari is going to be an incredibly fast vehicle to drive because it only has 6.2 pounds per horsepower. A normal F430 usually has 6.9 pounds per horsepower. Why the sudden drop for more speed? Many beleive that Ferrari has decided to challenge Lamborghini’s Gallardo Superleggera, which also dropped weight for the speed.

But don’t think that Ferrari stopped there with its surprises. They took it one step further and proceeded to install ‘F1 Superfast’, a six-speed sequential software that will knock off gearchanges in 60 milliseconds. Also the F430’s electronic rear differential has been coupled with the F1-Trac stability system for goof-proof handling.

The vehicle has the ability to show consumers how Formula 1 racing experience can be put to good use in every day vehicles. To show off this idea Ferrari has asked Michael Schumacher to unviel the new Scuderia in September at the Frankfurt auto show.
