Ferrari Working On Successor To F430

Written by tonks on February 4, 2009

Ferrari F430The good new is we have some information concerning the successor to the Ferrari F430. The bad news is that we only have a small bit of info. But it is enough to whet our appetites and keep us searching for more.

As we all know Ferrari does not produce concept cars often – but when they do they are able to produce a car better than the one before it. This new concept that has surfaced is no different. Sources tell us that it is expected to have certain green standards like that found on the Mille Chili concept and it will be in the mid-engine class.

We are expecting to see the new concept with a direct injection and dual-clutch transmission that we saw on the Ferrari California model. This will of course be connected to a regenerative brake system that they created with the help of their sister company – Mangeti Marelli.

For now it has been given the name F142. We hope that it changes into something better soon. We have heard that it might take on the F450 or F470 nameplate. However, this will depend on the displacement of the V8 engine. We are expecting the new supercar to be lighter than the 430 Scuderia mill. The model will hopefully show itself in full to us in October during the Frankfurt Auto Show.
