The Ferrari F430 was produced from 2004 to 2009. The sports car is known for its stunning exterior. In a collaboration between Pininfarina and Frank Stephenson, the Ferrari F430 was designed in order to improve the aerodynamic efficiency of the Ferrari 360. Functioning as a successor of the Ferrari 360, the design of the Ferrari F430 enabled the downforce of the car to be enhanced. The biggest difference between the Ferrari 360 and the Ferrari F430 was the exterior. The bumper of the car for example included large oval openings that go back to the racing models of Ferrari from the sixties.
The Ferrari F430 includes a lot of improved and new features. The car has a 4,308 cc V8 petrol engine. The engine used creates an end to the era of the Dino racing program. The Ferrari Dino engine was used for over 50 years. The F430 has a top speed of 315 km/h (196 mph). The car can accelerate from 0 to 97 km/h (60 mph) in only 3.6 seconds. The breaks were also renewed. The development was in collaboration with Brembo and Bosch. This resulted in anew cast-iron alloy. Other features are the E-Diff and the usage of manettino steering wheel-mouthed control knob.
