Ferrari F430 Scuderia


 2006 Ferrari F430

Welcome to this article on the Ferrari F430 Scuderia.

Below is a list of the specs for the ferrari. First off, here is a bit of background information on the F430 scuderia. The F430 scuderia serves as the successor to the challenge stradale. The f430 scuderia was first revealed by Micheal Schumacher at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show. The F430 Scuderia is aimed to compete with lightweight cars such as the Lamborghini Gallardo superrleggera and the Porsche RS models. It was also tested against this lamborghini by top gear. It showed that the ferrari was faster than the lambo by about a second. you can see this video on my site if you are interested by visiting the link.

The F430 Scuderia is lighter (by 100 kg/220 lb) and more powerful (515 PS (379 kW; 508 hp) at 8500 rpm) than the standard F430. Most of the power in the Scuderia comes from a revised intake, scuderia exhaust and an ion-sensing knock-detection system that allows for a higher compression ratio. Therefore the weight-to-power ratio in the f430 scuderia is reduced from 2.96 kg/hp to 2.5 kg/hp.

In addition to the weight saving measures, the f430 Scuderias semi-automatic transmission gains improved “Superfast”, known as “Superfast2”, software for faster 60 millisecond shift-times. A new traction control system combines the F1-Trac traction and stability control with the E-Diff electronic differential. The Ferrari 430 Scuderia does 0-60 miles per hour in 3.1 s and 0-100 km/h in less than 3.6 seconds, with a top speed of 198 miles per hour.

The scuderia is definitely a supercar to be desired for but is it worth the extra 50k more than the standard f430?Ferrari also claim that it is as fast as an enzo round their track in Italy and that it is much easier to drive. Tiff Nidell from 5th gear tested the enzo and the scuderia round the track in Italy and got the exact same time for both cars. Bearing in mind that an enzo is about half a million to buy and is much less practical.
