The F430 Spider joins the F430 as the latest addition to the new generation of Ferrari V8-engined sports cars. The F430 Spider’s innovative aerodynamics, honed to generate dynamic air flows to increase down-force and improve cooling, and the F1 gearbox featuring upgraded software, are just two examples of how Ferrari’s technological excellence has been transferred from the track to road.
The F430 Spider’s all-aluminium bodywork and chassis have also been carefully strengthened, to guarantee both occupant safety and the structural rigidity demanded by a car of such high performance.
Two very robust steel roll-bars are integrated into the windshield structure to guarantee maximum occupant protection. The electric hood is fully automatic and folds away under its own flush-fitting tonneau cover, allowing Ferrari engineers to hone the aerodynamics of the car with the hood down.
DESIGN & STYLING
Created by Pininfarina, the F430 Spider is inspired by the car’s exceptional engineering and Formula 1. The nose, which is characterised by two distinctive air intakes, draws inspiration from the Ferrari 156 F1 that Phil Hill drove to his F1 World Championship title in 1961. The Enzo Ferrari was the inspiration for much of the rear styling of the new F430 Spider, and the Ferrari 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.
The interior of the F430 Spider has been redesigned for improved driver ergonomics. The interior is exceptionally innovative as well as sporty.
The instruments are housed in a new binnacle, and this design – together with the layout of the dashboard – underlines the care that has gone into grouping all the major controls within easy reach of the driver.
In the driver’s direct line of sight are the rev counter, which features new graphics with a choice of either a red or yellow background and a new metal surround, the digital readout of the gear ratio selected (F1 version) and a multi-function display.
The same uncompromising approach to driver control was the inspiration behind mounting the starter button and manettino on the steering wheel.
The cockpit is noticeably bigger and the already excellent passenger comfort is improved still further by a slimmer central tunnel which houses the gear lever turret on the manual version or the F1 console on the paddle-shift version.
The seats have been redesigned for greater lateral containment too. Electric seats are available on request as is a racing version featuring a four-point safety harness (depending on market).
Each Ferrari to emerge from the factory at Maranello is absolutely unique, not just because it is hand-built, but also because a virtually endless combination of personalisation options is offered to each new owner.
A choice of 16 different bodywork and 12 different leather trim colours are available for the F430 models. These can be matched with no less than eight different carpet colours.
The rev counter is available in either red or yellow and the inserts on the dash can be personalised in carbon-fibre or aluminium. Four different hood colours are available for the Spider: black, navy, beige or bordeaux. Ferrari’s personalisation options are completed by the exclusive and extensive “Carrozzeria Scaglietti” Personalisation Programme.
