Test Mule For Ferrari F430 Caught On Camera

Written by tonks on June 23, 2009

Ferrari F430 Test MuleSome great shots of the test mule for the brand new Ferrari F450 have surfaced on the Internet thanks to the people at CzechFerrari.cz. They managed to get hold of some photos of the disguised Ferrari 599 Spider – something that we have been waiting some time for.

Ferrari usually uses the body panel’s from the previous model to help conceal the contours of the new vehicle from probing eyes. This is a good strategy to have because it leaves us with only simple pictures – but with nothing but guesswork to go on. However, things were different this time and caught more then we though possible.

These test mule gives us a great view at the bulk of the exterior body including its aluminum frame as well as the interior of the vehicle. The engine looks to house a twin clutch transmission and high mounted exhaust outlets. The front and rear fascias were missing.

The new Ferrari is replacing the F430 and is said to be debuting during the Frankfurt Auto Show sometime in September. There are also rumors that there will be a hybrid version that might show itself during the LA show only a couple of months after.

Wait till a performance shop such as Heffner Performance gets ahold of this vehicle.
