FERRARI F430
The F430 hails the arrival of a whole new generation of Ferrari V8-engined berlinettas. Every inch of the car was inspired by the engineering research carried out at Ferrari’s Gestione Sportiva F1 Racing Division. The result is a highly innovative design characterised by cutting-edge technologies perfected for use on a road-going car.
Two of these innovations are world firsts for a production car: the electronic differential (E-Diff), initially developed by Ferrari for its F1 single-seaters and designed to make the most of the engine’s torque to optimise traction, and the handily placed steering wheel-mounted commutator switch (better known to the Scuderia’s drivers as the manettino), which directly controls the systems governing vehicle dynamics.








The F430′s light, compact 4,308 cc engine that gives the car its name is completely new ; it punches out 490 hp and delivers a specific power output of 114 hp/l and 465 Nm of torque. Needless to say, performance is outstanding: acceleration from zero to 100 km/h in four seconds flat and a maximum speed in excess of 315 km/h.
Every area of this latest Prancing Horse car has been influenced by Formula 1. For instance, a braking system using carbon-ceramic discs has been installed within the car as standard. The discs offer superior stopping power and give the driver the satisfying feeling of being in complete control of the vehicle even in the most demanding situations. The F430′s aerodynamics are also highly innovative for a road car: its shape has been honed to generate air flows to increase down-force and improve cooling. Every last component of this Ferrari has been perfected to deliver outstanding performance and driving pleasure.


DESIGN
DESIGN & STYLING
Created by Pininfarina in collaboration with Ferrari’s Head of Design, the F430 is inspired by the car’s exceptional engineering and Formula 1. The F430’s nose, characterised by two distinctive air intakes, draws inspiration from the Ferrari 156 F1 that Phil Hill drove to his 1961 F1 World Championship title.
The Enzo Ferrari was the inspiration for much of the rear styling of the new F430, and the Ferrari’s meticulous aerodynamic detailing is reflected in the design of the nolder incorporated into the engine cover and the new rear diffuser integrated into the bumper, which boasts race-derived dimensions. Extreme care has also been lavished on designing the exterior details. The wing mirrors now have specially profiled twin mounting arms that channel air flows to the engine intakes, and the F430 name has been embossed on the back of the driver’s side mirror. Even the finish of the engine bay is a work of art in terms of its distinctive shape and materials.


This switch quickly and simply controls the electronics governing suspension setting and the CST stability and traction control, E-Diff and the change speed of the F1 transmission, as well as the integration between each of these individual functions. The settings available to the driver have been concentrated in five different strategies. These, in ascending order according the level of performance, are: ICE: performance is significantly restricted (maximum intervention by the stability and traction control) for maximum stability – indispensable for driving in very slippery conditions (snow or ice). LOW GRIP: this position ensures stability both on dry and wet surfaces. It is therefore recommended for surfaces with poor grip (rain), gritty roads or particu-larly broken or undulating blacktop. In this configuration, unlike ICE, the driver can still use the F1 paddle shift.
SPORT: is the standard setting that strikes the best balance between stability and performance. Ideal for the open road, this position provides an optimum compromise for maximum performance in safety. Compared to the previous settings, SPORT adopts a more sporting configuration for the adaptive suspension to maximise performance,handling and stability at high speeds.
RACE: this setting must be used only on the race track.Gear changing is even faster to minimise gear shift times.
CST intervention is reduced to a minimum (the engine management only cuts the engine when absolutely necessary).
CST: activates or deactivates the stability and traction control. With the manettino set to off, the driver has full control over the car’s reactions. The only driver aids that remain active are those that cannot be overridden such as ABS and EBD (electronic brake distribution).

ENGINE
The F430 is powered by a new 90° V8 featuring Ferrari’s traditionally uncompromising design approach with a flat-plane crank (180° between throws). This is an all-new unit that does not share any components with the 360 Modena’s engine. The improvement in terms of performance, weight and reduction of overall dimensions is the result of applying Ferrari’s wealth of F1 experience to its road cars. Despite a 20% increase in engine displacement (from 3,586 cc to 4,308 cc), engine weight has grown minimally by just 4 kg, while perform-ance is considerably improved across the board. Torque increases by 25% (465 Nm at 5,250 rpm, 80% of which is already available at 3,500 rpm) and power by 23% (490 hp at 8,500 rpm).

RACING HERITAGE
The F1 gearbox introduces a number of important innovations, thanks to input from Gestione Sportiva engineers.
Thanks to that ongoing development, Ferrari’s F1 gearbox for the F430 is state of the art, introducing a number of important modifications: thanks to inputs from the engineers on the Gestione Sportiva racing side, the F1 gearbox management incorporates a new control strategy which further perfects gearchange speed and smoothness under hard use. Changing gear takes just 150 milliseconds, as measured by the ‘hole’ in acceleration during the change (intended as the overall time from declutching, changing gear to releasing the clutch). As well as increasing the speed of changes during hard driving, the new software improves smoothness in the fully automatic mode (actuated by a button on the central tunnel), making the F430 a true all-rounder.
FLAT-PLANE CRANKSHAFT
The engine’s flat-plane crank (with 180° between throws) epitomises Ferrari’s uncompromising design approach.
Eight-cylinder engines with a 90 degree angle between their cylinder banks are a relatively recent addition to Ferrari history.
Apart from the engine sported by the 1956 World Championship-wining F1 car, which Ferrari inherited from Lancia after the latter pulled out competition, and the one mounted to the 248 sports prototype in the early 1960s, it was 1973 before a Ferrari would be powered by an engine with this specific architecture.
Characteristically flat-plane crankshaft engines have a crankshaft with crankpins angled at 180 degrees to each other or “flat” i.e. on the same plane.
-DIFF ELECTRONIC DIFFERENTIAL
One of the technical features that sets the F430 apart is the E-Diff, or electronic differential.
This solution has been used for years in F1 single-seaters and has been continuously developed and refined, effectively transferring massive torque levels to the track under extremely high cornering g-forces. The E-Diff is now standard equipment on the F430 – the first time that a production car has been equipped with such a sophisticated system for high-performance roadholding. On the track, the E-Diff guarantees maximum grip out of bends, eliminating wheel spin.

INCREASING DOWNFORCE
The underbody actively helps increase total down-force (to a maximum of 150 kg) over the rear axle.
The nolder on the trailing edge of the engine cover works in conjunction with the new diffuser between the rear wheels The latter features similar fences (deflectors) to those used on Ferrari’s single-seaters, and increases the speed of air flow under the tail of the car creating an area of depression and ground effect that pulls the car down. In this conformation, the underbody actively helps increase downforce to a maximum of 150 kg over the rear axle. Aerodynamic development also had a part in extracting the maximum performance from the new 4.3-litre V8. The two intakes for the engine are positioned over the driven wheels in an area of high flow pressure, thus guaranteeing a greater volume of air to the intake manifold.
