Ferrari has gone and done what many thought would never happen. They have decided to create 499 limited editions of their new 430 Scuderia Spider 16M exotic to celebrate their 16th Formula 1 Constructors Championship! The Scuderia Spider 16M will host all the same performance slamming numbers as the original 430 Scuderia such as the 510 hp 4.3L V8 meshed with the slickest 6-speed F1 inspired paddle shift gearbox in the world allowing it to perform 0-60 in 3.7 seconds.
Yet another amateur blogger was allowed to post on Autoblog.com and improperly called the 430 Scuderia an F430 Scuderia. Not sure when these kids are going to learn the finer details of properly reporting auto news, but either way it’s fun when you can call them on it. 😛
Scuderia Spider 16M unveiled at World Finals in Mugello
Scarperia, November 9th 2008 – Ferrari has chosen to unveil the new Scuderia Spider 16M at the World Finals in Mugello in celebration of its recent victory in the Formula 1 Constructor’s World Championship 2008. This new high performance sports car features the very best of Ferrari’s latest mid-rear-engined 8-cylinder technology. In fact, the Scuderia Spider 16M is faster round the Fiorano circuit than any other Prancing Horse open-top road car yet built. This truly evocative special series model, of which just 499 unique examples will be produced, is aimed at the most passionate clients, drivers who demand both exclusivity and superb driving pleasure.
The Scuderia Spider 16M is available in a choice of two new signature colour schemes: the standard version is black with grey trim, while a tricolour livery is also available as part of the Carrozzeria Scaglietti Personalisation Programme. The new car also sports a special plaque on its rear grille commemorating Ferrari’s 16th Constructor’s World title. The exclusivity of the interior is underscored by the silver “limited series” plaque just above the air vents at the centre of the dashboard. Other exclusive features include a roll-bar with carbon-fibre outer shell and a specific new generation audio system that can be combined with the removable customised Ferrari iPod Touch 16 GB with central dock just in front of the dashboard.
From a technical point of view, this car has a dry weight of 1340 Kg (80 kg lighter than the F430 Spider). This, combined with the 510 hp provided by its V8 engine and a power-to-weight ratio of 2.6 kg/hp, means that it delivers blistering 0-100 kph acceleration in just 3.7 seconds and a superb top speed of 315 kph.
So whats next for Ferrari? A Ferrari 4 Door ?
