Introduced in 2004 at the Paris Motor Show, the Ferrari F430 was the latest in the line of V8-engined Ferrari road cars that had begun back in 1973 with the 308GT4. The F430 was a development of 360 Modena, sharing the latter's aluminium chassis, roofline, doors and window glass, though the body itself had been extensively revised. Styled, as usual, by Pininfarina, the F430 body generated greater downforce without the penalty of increased aerodynamic drag. In styling the F430, Pininfarina referenced some of Ferrari's other great cars, using the Enzo's tail lights and a Testarossa-style driver's-side mirror.
Beneath the F430's transparent engine cover there was entirely new 4.3l F136 E. More compact than its predecessor, this new engine developed a maximum of 483bhp, while 80% of the 343lb/ft of torque was available below 3,500 revs, quite an achievement for a normally aspirated engine. A traditional manual transmission was still available, but most buyers opted for the F1-style paddle shift version, which the car was designed around. One of the F430's more significant developments was the 'E-Diff', a computer-controlled limited-slip differential. As Autocar explained: 'with this much power it's quite possible to come to a turn too fast, but in sports mode the diff and its electronics maintain traction, minimise understeer, and assist in the creation of that fast-flowing fluency that keen drivers dream of.' And the F430 was certainly fast, with a top speed in excess of 315km/h (196mph) and a 0-100km/h (0-62mph) time of around 4.0 seconds. Helping keep this outstanding performance under control were Brembo brakes and their associated Bosch electronics package.
