Shake off your midweek blues by watching this 5 minute video where Car Magazine Online got to test drive Darth Maul’s new Ferrari F430 Scuderia both on the road and on the track.
This beautiful and very agile new iteration of the F430 is 20bhp more powerful and 220lbs lighter than the regular Ferrari F430 giving it some super sexy handling abilities both on the road and on the track.
Scuderia Ferrari is the name used for Ferrari’s Automobile Division concerned with Formula One Racing. Ferrari’s racing division has completely devoted its attention and funding to its Formula One team, Scuderia Ferrari.
Scuderia is Italian for “Stable”, rightfully used to denote this new beauty built on Ferrari’s acquired F1 knowledge that is 2nd to nobody.
F1 driver Michael Schumacher officially unveiled the car in Frankfurt this month and also was involved in its development and testing.
510 bhp @ 8500 rpm
346.7 ft lbs @ 5250 rpm
0-60mph: < 3.6 sec Top Speed: 198 mph Aerodynamically Tweaked for more stability at higher speeds Price: ~$350,000 USD ($40k more than the regular F430) Ferrari claims that by 2012 they will have stopped increasing the HP of these magnificent stallions, as lighter weight materials will be used more and more in their construction in order to achieve even higher Power to Weight ratios.
