    New Ferrari F430 (56k warning)

    Maranello, 24 August 2004 – The F430 signals the arrival of a brand new generation of Ferrari 8-cylinder models. This new car takes Ferrari’s extraordinary achievements with aluminium technology, begun with the 360 Modena, to a whole new level, and offers a series of extremely significant innovations directly derived from the Ferrari Formula 1 single-seaters.

    Two of these innovations are world firsts for production cars: the electronic differential (E-Diff) and the steering wheel-mounted switch (better known to the Formula 1 Scuderia’s drivers as "manettino"), which manages the integrated systems governing vehicle dynamics.

    The other main characteristics of the new F430 are its light, compact 4,300 cc 90° V8 engine, which punches out 490 hp to achieve a specific output of 114 hp/litre, also providing the new Ferrari berlinetta with a weight-to-power ratio of 2.8 kg/hp (dry weight); a braking system with carbon-ceramic discs for optimal efficiency under extreme use (optional); a Formula 1-derived gearbox that cuts gear shifting times down to 150 milliseconds allowing the driver to make the very most of this truly high performance car (0-62 mph acceleration in 4 seconds flat, a top speed in excess of 196 mph) and an aerodynamic design that embodies the very latest competition technologies, specifically the flat underbody and large rear diffuser to increase downforce.

    The car will be officially presented during the Paris Motor show in September 2004. The UK price and specification for the F430 will be announced prior to its UK launch in 2005.

    That looks the dogs doodahs!! Very nice indeed. I've always been a massive fan of the F355, and have never been that impressed with the F360, but they're back on track with this one! I'm talking purely about looks of course.

    Are you serious? I think it's stunning! I like the steering wheel especially because of the big engine start button and the simply yellow prancing Ferrari emblem. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/bravo.gif[/img]

    They'll be rebadges as Schumachers by 2011 as he'll own Ferrari by then.

    I agree with Mikebabs1 - the F355 was the car, the F360 was abit of a let down, but this one looks stunning.

    Me also, not 40 that is but driving a new one on my birthday, but I have 7.8 years to go and if Schumacher takes over Ferriari I'll get my backup - an RS6 AMD version.
