Ferrari F430 Scuderia tries to break the speed of light barrier

Ferrari F430 Scuderia

Capitalizing on its success in the Formula 1 racings, the Italian company has created its new Ferrari F430 Scuderia street-legal race car. The new coupe is not just fast -- it's built around a set of F1 technologies including a new super-fast gearbox with a gearchange ratio of only 60 milliseconds.
The new Ferrari F430 Scuderia is said to be equipped with a more powerful 4.3-liter V8 engine producing up to 510 hp @ 8500 rpm, which is 27 hp more than F430's original motivator can make. And with its dry weight of only 1250 kg (which is about 100 kg less than the standard Ferrari F430) the new F430 Scuderia features stunning 1/2.45 power to weight ratio.
The company plans to officially unveil its Ferrari F430 Scuderia on September 11, 2007 at the upcoming IAA Motor Show in Frankfurt with Michael Schumacher running the show.
