2019 Ferrari 430 Scuderia. Enthusiasts who have well-padded bank accounts should rejoice, because the 430 Scuderia is a stunning vehicle. The engine in the 430 Scuderia is a wondrous device, a snarling 4.3-liter V-8 that makes 483 horsepower. The Scuderia gets an additional 20 horsepower and an engine sound that’s so loud and enticing it causes occupants to giggle in delight. The extra power and noise come from a revised intake manifold, a freer-flowing exhaust, and a slightly higher compression ratio, among other changes. The 2019 Ferrari 430 Scuderia is a sports car that was produced by the Italian car manufacturer Ferrari from 2004 to 2009. A successor to the Ferrari 360, it debuted at the 2004 Paris Motor Show. Its successor, the Ferrari 458, was unveiled on 28 July 2009.
Designed by Pininfarina, under the guidance of Frank Stephenson, the body styling of the 2019 Ferrari 430 Scuderia was revised from its predecessor, the Ferrari 360, to improve its aerodynamic efficiency. Although the drag coefficient remained the same, downforce was greatly enhanced. Despite sharing the same basic Alcoa Aluminium chassis, roof line, doors and glass, the car looked significantly different from the 360. A great deal of Ferrari heritage was included in the exterior design. At the rear, the Enzo’s tail lights and interior vents were added. The car’s name was etched into the Testarossa-styled driver’s side mirror.
The large oval openings in the front bumper are reminiscent of Ferrari racing models from the 60s, specifically the 156 “sharknose” Formula One car and 250 TR61 Le Mans cars of Phil Hill. The brakes on the 2019 Ferrari 430 Scuderia were designed in close cooperation with Brembo (who did the calipers and discs) and Bosch (who did the electronics package), resulting in a new cast-iron alloy for the discs. The new alloy includes molybdenum which has better heat dissipation performance. The 430 Scuderia was also available with the optional Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite brake package. Ferrari claims the carbon ceramic brakes will not fade even after 300-360 laps at their test track.
Whatever the reason, enthusiasts who have well-padded bank accounts should rejoice, because the 430 Scuderia is a stunning vehicle. The engine in the 430 Scuderia is a wondrous device, a snarling 4.3-liter V-8 that makes 483 horsepower. The Scuderia gets an additional 20 horsepower and an engine sound that’s so loud and enticing it causes occupants to giggle in delight. The extra power and noise come from a revised intake manifold, a freer-flowing exhaust, and a slightly higher compression ratio (up from 11.3:1 to 11.9:1), among other changes. The F1 automated manual transmission is upgraded, too, with revised software to effect neck-wrenchingly quick shifts.
Ferrari says the interval has gone from 150 milliseconds on the 430 Scuderia to just 60, close to the times that its Formula 1 cars were doing a couple of years ago. Like the Scuderia, the 2019 Ferrari 430 Scuderia has an electronically actuated clutch-pack-type differential that now works in harness with Ferrari’s latest traction-control system, F1-Trac. Carbon-ceramic composite brakes are standard, with front rotors that are 15.7 inches in diameter (up 0.7 inch over the 430 Scuderia’s).
The MSRP for a 2019 Ferrari 430 Scuderia was $186,925 to $217,318 in the United States, £119,500 in the United Kingdom, approximately €175,000 in the European Union, and $379,000 for the base model to $450,000 for the Spider F1 in Australia and New Zealand.
