Ferrari F430 Challenge Stradale

Cought near the Nürburgring! This is the all new Ferrari F430 Challenge Stradale. The F430 Challenge Stradale is based on the road edition of the F430. Like the 360 CS it's lighter and has more power. Great ingredients for a stunning sportscar.

The pictures are taken near the German Nürburgring where many car manufacturers test their cars. An amazing car for the road but even better on the track. That's where the Challenge Stradale really knows how to use all of its power. The F430 Challenge Stradale will be some tough competition for the Porsche 997 GT3 RS and Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. Both cars that are meant to drive on the track. Thanks to a weight reduction of 100 kg on the Challenge Stradale, the car is lighter than the standard road edition. The power of the engine has been increased with 30 bhp from 490 to 520 bhp. A lighter car with more power, that means that it's faster and like the 360 CS, a hell of a lot louder.

The rear of the car is different as well. The exhausts are mounted higher, next to the license plate. The brake discs are bigger and Ferrari used a lot of carbon which is also visible in the interior. Ferrari will start delivering the F430 Challenge Stradale by the end of this year. Coming up in 2008: a whole new Ferrari.
