Description

Ferrari F430 F1 Spider

Ferrari has a legendary name, synonymous with performance, racing, and style. So, by the end of 2003, when the 360 Modena, which had revolutionized Ferrari’s V8 supercars, was in desperate need of a replacement, the 360 began its chrysalis toward perfection. Yes, after its six-year stint defending their titles a new champion appeared to take the reins, the F430 .

With this new car, Ferrari wanted to draw heavily from their Formula 1 experience.

The appearance of the car used design queues from their success with modern aerodynamic studies and the old touches were from the beautiful designs of Ferrari’s past winners.

For example, the F430’s front grill vents are inspired by the F156, which Phil Hill drove to win the F1 World Championship in 1961. Meanwhile, in between those two vents, a front wing works to smooth air for its journey underneath the all flat under-body panels. By creating a new exterior design in wind tunnel testing, Ferrari was significantly able to improve down-force generation (50% more) on the F430, when compared to the 360.

Just like in their winning F1 cars, Ferrari added onto the steering wheel of the F430, the “Manettino” switch, which offered five different modes for the stability control system including “Snow,” “Race”, and “Off.” These settings gave the driver direct control over how the E-diff operated and allowed them to rapidly change the vehicle set-up – even while driving.

Compared to the 360 Modena’s engine, which was a descendant of the 1950’s Dino racing program, the F136’s new design helped push up power by an astonishing 90 hp!

These horsepower improvements came from an increase in displacement, indeed, but the real changes were from the new pistons, rods, and a flat-plane crankshaft. Those were all coupled to new cylinder heads, valves, and intake trumpets .
