Ferrari F430 Scuderia

Here is the first glimpse of the new F430 Scuderia. Ferrari surprised everyone by not calling it the Stradale, but naming conventions aside, it's still one sexy package. Weight has been reduced by 220 lbs, and power has been bumped to 510hp up from the standard 483hp. That means a very mean power to weight ratio of just 5.4 lb. for every horsepower. Other significant changes include a "Superfast" software update that reduces gear changes to just 60 milliseconds, and a new traction control system that integrates both the electronic differential with the F1-Trac traction control system. New wheels, racing stripes, and more carbon bits round out the package. Wallpapers and press release after the jump.

Michael Schumacher will officially unveil the car at the Frankfurt Motor Show.

The new Ferrari 430 Scuderia will join the road-going V8 line-up alongside the F430 coupe and the F430 Spider. The 430 Scuderia is a truly high-performance 2-seater berlinetta which demonstrates how Ferrari's Formula 1 know-how is carried across to its production cars.

The new model is a special series based on the F430 and is aimed specifically at Ferrari's most passionate and sports-driving oriented clients. Development focused on light weight, minimum trimmings and innovative technology. All this to exalt the car's extremely high-performance and ability to thrill the driver.

The new car can count on an extremely low weight-to-power ratio of just 2.45 kg per hp thanks to a low dry weight of just 1250 kg - 100 kg less than the standard F430, and to the naturally-aspirated 4308cc V8's 510 hp at 8500 rpm.

Superb performance both on and off the track is assured by a series of cutting-edge solutions. There is the latest F1 software - Superfast - which reduces gearchange times to just 60 milliseconds, and new traction control which, for the first time, combines the E-Diff electronic differential and the F1-Trac traction and stability control in a single integrated system.

Vehicle dynamics, control and performance thus represent the zenith of Ferrari's achievements in terms of developing road-certified sports cars.

The 430 Scuderia will be officially unveiled by Michael Schumacher on September 11 2007 at the IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt.
