Ferrari F430

The Ferrari 360 was for many a very hard act to follow, but the F430 does not disappoint in any area, faster, with more power and with all round better handling, the F430 is one of the best Ferraris ever produced.

With a new 4.3 litre V8 engine, the Ferrari F430 produces a whopping 483 brake horsepower, that converts to a nought to sixty time of just four seconds and if you keep your foot to the floor and go through the new 6-speed ‘F1′ electrohydraulic manual gearbox, the revometer will climb to the 8,600 rpm redline and you will quite quickly reach a staggering 196 mph.

However, what is the use of all that power if you can’t transfer it to the track? Don’t worry, the F430 has a heavily modified version of the 360 Modena chassis, stiffer to cope with the horsepower increase and with a new tricky diff to make sure all that extra power transfers smoothly to the tarmac. Many thought the 360 Modena couldn’t get any better, well it certainly has in the form of the F430.

“I haven’t found a single environment where it is anything less than spectacular!”
