    Not a bad car if you ask me :

    Also about the future engines development orientations, especially concerning the F430's successor:

    Interesting that article claims Scud tires bespoke-spec'd for safe dry/wet public road use....

    Re: Autocar's Chris Harris drives the 430 Scuderia

    I dislike it when AutoCar changes their article URLs...

    Re: Autocar's Chris Harris drives the 430 Scuderia

    I love this new color it's really fabulous!

    Any high res pics of this?

    Re: Autocar's Chris Harris drives the 430 Scuderia

    try mailing autocar for hi rez tho they'll prob try and charge for pics

    Re: Autocar's Chris Harris drives the 430 Scuderia

    I hate when journalists act like they were the stars of the show like in this video from autocar...

    Much better the videos from CAR

    In regards to the future Ferrari engine technology, I think the Direct Fuel Injection will compliment their future of even lighter sports cars, which has been all over the automotive magazines and websites. It is awesome that Ferrari is working directly with Bosch to expand the potential of this technology.

    I wonder if we already see the new DI-technology in the California GT and the F430-successor.

    Agreed. The Autocar feature is more about Chris Harris than about the 430S

    Don't know if this is the right color, but still a pretty cool picture:

    Re: Autocar's Chris Harris drives the 430 Scuderia

    Rossi, as do I. The article gives the impression that the technology may even be featured in the last years of the 612, 599, and F430 models before they are replaced.

    This is exactly the reason, why I think waiting for the F430 successor is the way to go. Don't get me wrong, the Scuderia surely is a fantastic piece of machinery, but OTOH it is the third modification (after 360CS and F430) of the 360 Modena, a car which was designed way back in the nineties.

    I expect the F430-successor to be a quantum leap compared to the F430, which will use the technology of the 599 (chassis, F1 Superfast), Scuderia (legerity, F1 Superfast2) and new technology (DI-engines). That combined with a totally new and hopefully thrilling design will make my day.
    That said, I may get a Scuderia if I can get my hands on one, but if delivery will be later than end of 2008, it's not worth the wait, since I still expect the successor in early 2009.

    Just need to get new cars every 6mos to have latest/greatest/most debugged-tech....and, from an aesthetic standpoint, to have car, during one's period of use, w/fewest inevitable battle scars from appropriate use (and least amt of mtce downtime/hassles/costs)....

    Re: Autocar's Chris Harris drives the 430 Scuderia

    Now that you put it that way Rossi, the successor could possibly be monumental. If the Scuderia could be this fast I can only imagine the replacement of the F430. It is not as mind-boggling as trying to understand various quantum physics theories but thinking of something that is lighter, faster, with higher tech equipment in a few years time runs close to it.

    the California should have a direct injection engine , it will be interesting to see how high the engine revs , hope the diret injection doesn't imply a lower limit for the revs..
