    The F430 hails the arrival of a new generation of Ferrari 8-cylinder engines. The new model takes Ferrari’s extraordinary achievements with aluminium construction technology, which started with the 360 Modena, to a whole new level and offers a series of extremely significant innovations directly derived from the Prancing Horse’s Formula 1 single-seaters.

    Two of these innovations are world firsts for production cars: the electronic differential (E-DIFF) initially developed by Ferrari for its F1 single-seaters but now adapted to the needs of a high performance road car, and the steering wheel-mounted commutator switch (better known to the Scuderia’s drivers as the “manettino”) which the driver uses to select the integrated systems governing vehicle dynamics.

    The other main characteristics of the new Ferrari F430 are its light, compact 4,300cc 90° V8 engine which punches out 490 hp to achieve a specific horse power of 114 bhp/litre, guaranteeing the new Ferrari berlinetta a weight-to-power ratio of 2.8 kg/hp (dry weight); a braking system with optional carbon-ceramic discs for optimal efficiency even after severe and prolonged braking; a Formula 1-derived gearbox that cuts gear shifting times to 150 milliseconds, allowing the driver to make the very most of a truly high performance car (0-100 km/h acceleration in four seconds flat, a top speed in excess of 315 km/h); and lastly, sophisticated aerodynamics that adopt the very latest racing developments, especially in terms of the flat underbody and big rear diffuser to increase downforce.

    I like the rear of the 360 better, but the front end is better on the 430.

    Wow...

    For some reason, the headlights in the first pic remind me of the Gallardo...but damn, that car is sex. Absolute sex.

    Looks so much like the 360. Am I the only one that is somewhat dissapointed to have to wait another 6 years for a drastic design change? :hs:

    Ferrari is back in the game though, and running.

    I agree that there isn't enough of a change to wet my pants. Nothing like the 355 -> 360 leap :hs:. Beautiful car though.

    I cannot believe you guys are saying that looks so good. It looks like a photoshop. Nothing works together.

    I know you guys are going to talk shit about my OPINION, but come on, look at the headlights, it looks like some ricer headlight conversion -- they don't fit on there at all.

    The tail lights -- wow, it looks great from some angles, but the 360 looked so much better it's rediculous.

    Words cannot describe the disappointment I have with Ferrari.

    rediculous how much better the 360 looks. god the 430 looks like some ricer got ahold of way too much money and did an enzo rear light conversion.

    blah whatever. I'm sure noone agrees.

    I agree. The 430 looks too busy in the back.
