The 2009 Ferrari F430 is the culmination of more than 60 years of road-racing domination and technological development. The F430's 4.8L V8 not only produces an incredible soundtrack, but also belts out 490 hp at 8500 rpm. A 6-speed manual comes standard, but the F1-derived paddle-shift automatic gearbox is also available. Those who prefer open-air motoring can select the F430 Spider, which features a folding soft-top and rollover protection system. All models include a steering wheel mounted manettino switch to adjust suspension settings, traction control, and the dynamics of the gearbox and electronic differential. For the ultimate track day weapon, Ferrari offers the F430 Scuderia which utilizes 20 additional hp, carbon-ceramic brakes, aerodynamic improvements and a 220 pound weight reduction to match the vaunted Ferrari Enzo around the Fiorano test track.
