Ferrari 430 Scuderia on Las Vegas Strip
Nicks Facebook Page:
While on vacation in Las Vegas, I have had an opportunity to spot cars in
the blazing hot weather here. On my way to the Venetian, I spot this
head-turning Ferrari 430 Scuderia cruising down the Las Vegas Strip in 100+
degree weather. The Ferrari 430 Scuderia is a track-packed version of the
F430, ultimately increasing the power output by 20 hp making the car 508 hp
from its stock 483hp in the F430.
Serving as the successor to the Challenge Stradale, the 430 Scuderia
(scuderia meaning "stable of horses", but also used in the context of motor
racing teams, including Ferrari's own) was unveiled by Michael Schumacher
at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show. Aimed to compete with cars like the
Porsche RS-models and the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera (superleggera
meaning super light weight), it is lighter (by 100 kg/220 lb) and more
powerful (515 PS (379 kW; 508 hp) at 8500 rpm) than the standard F430.
Increased power comes from a revised intake, Exhaust, and an ion-sensing knock-detection
system that allows for a higher compression ratio. Thus the
weight-to-power ratio is reduced from 2.96 kg/hp to 2.5 kg/hp. In addition
to the weight saving measures, the Scuderia semi-automatic transmission
gained improved "Superfast", known as "Superfast2", software for faster 60 millisecond shift-times. A new
traction control system combined the F1-Trac traction and stability control
with the E-Diff electronic differential. The Ferrari 430 Scuderia
accelerates from 0-100 kilometres per hour (62 mph) in 3.6 seconds,
with a top speed of 198 miles per hour (319 km/h). Ferrari claims that
around their test track, Fiorano Circuit, it is faster than a Ferrari Enzo.
