What an incredibly gorgeous car this is. We spotted this car while visiting Foreign Cars Italia in Greensboro, NC to drive the 2010 Ferrari California. Sitting in the showroom…one glistening Ferrari 430 16M Scuderia (quite a mouthful) ready for a camera. Check out the gallery below.
The Ferrari 430 16M Scuderia, as you may have guessed, is the drop-top version of the 430 Scuderia – or the lightweight version of the F430 Spider, depending on how you look at it. Ferrari managed to get the weight in this car down to 3168 lbs – 176 lbs lighter than the F430 Spider – by thoroughly using carbon fiber throughout the entire car. Zero to 62 mph comes in only 3.7 seconds, up to a top speed of 196 – you might want to have the top up for that run, though. All that grunt is courtesy of Ferrari’s 4.3-liter V-8 producing 510 horsepower through a super-quick 6-speed paddle-shifting gearbox.
There are only 499 of the Ferrari 430 16M Scuderias made, each starting at about $308,000 – over $90,000 higher than the F430 Spider.
