Latest model: Ferrari 430 Scuderia 2008
Lightweight, easy and striking with a distinctive motor and exhaust sound: each last detail of the Ferrari 430 Scuderia exudes uncompromising sportiness as a direct result of its close links to the world of racing, which is reflected in the car's name: Scuderia. Seven-times World Champion Michael Schumacher was also involved in the car's development, with the result that the most advanced single-seater technology is now available to Ferrari's sportiest and most passionate clients. With a dry weight of 2775 lb (1250 kg) and 510 hp provided at 8500 rpm by its naturally aspirated Ferrari 4308 cm3 V8 motor, the Ferrari 430 Scuderia boasts an extraordinarily low weight-power ratio of just 2. 45 kg/hp, which enables it to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in just 3. 6 seconds. It can also full a lap at Fiorano in a time comparable to that of the Ferrari Enzo, the Ferrari that has come to epitomise Maranello's philosophy of transferring F1 content to its road vehicles.

Ferrari 430 details:
due to its sophisticated aerodynamics, F1-superfast2 gearbox and E-diff coupled with the sophisticated F1-trac traction control system, this sporty new mid-rear engined berlinetta features ultra-nimble handling with blisteringly quickly acceleration. The result? Absolutely superlative driving pleasure both on the road and on the track.
The Ferrari 430 Scuderia's motor is an evolution of the Ferrari F430's 90° V8 which features a number of modifications to boost its specific performance output from 114 hp/litre to 118 hp/litre. The inlet ducts and exhaust system have been optimised, most notably via the adoption of the exhaust geometries derived from the Ferrari F430 Challenge and the use of carbon-fibre on the intake manifold and for the filter housing to aid weight reduction.
due to Ferrari's Formula 1 experience, the Ferrari 430 Scuderia's ignition system boasts special coils and, for the first time on a market-targeted vehicle, a dedicated CPU capable of monitoring the ionising currents generated inside the combustion chamber between the spark plug electrodes. This means that each single sparking detonation is detected for each cylinder and sparking is faster and more accurate across the board.
