Ferrari F450 2010

Ferrari F450 2010

Ferrari has been working steadily on the Ferrari F450 production car, the successor to the F430, their best selling mid-engine V8 supercar to date. So far they have been on a roll. The F355, 360 Modena and the current F430 have all been widely touted and very successful for the car manufacturer.

In fact, the 380 horsepower Ferrari F355 that was produced between 1994 and 1999 saved Ferrari from the brink of bankruptcy. During those years it was available as a Gran Turismo Berlinetta (GTB), Targa (GTS) and roadster (Spider) with a 0 to 60 mph sprint time of just 4.9 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph.

The 400 horsepower Ferrari 360 Modena came along in 1999 and dropped the 0-60 mph time to 4.3 seconds, pushing top speed up to 185 mph. In 2000, the Ferrari 360 Challenge was release as a track variant to compete in Ferrari's Challenge Championship series. The final version was released in 2003 as the Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale. Sporting an engine rated at 425 bhp, its 0 to 60 mph acceleration time was in the 4.1 second range with a 186 mph top speed.

The Ferrari F430 was released in 2004, featuring a 490 hp engine capable of 4 second flat sprints from 0 to 60 mph with a top speed of 196 mph. Similar to the work Ferrari did with the 360, the F430 was also released in two additional variations - Challenge (490 hp) and Challenge Stradale (520 hp). However, in 2007 at the Frankfurt Auto Show, they released the Ferrari F430 Scuderia, a leaner (220 lbs weight reduction) and more powerful (508 hp) version capable of 0-60 mph in 3.1 seconds and a top speed of 198 mph.
