Unique Sportcars: Ferrari F430 Calavera
text size: A- A+
And they did. Actually, they will build only 11 units of the Calavera, the "mother of future design implementations", as Unique Sportcars like to call it. The F430 we will describe below took 11 months to design and build and it's worth every day of that time.
The Novitec Rosso twin supercharged engine fitted on the Calavera develops 707 horsepower and 712 Nm of torque. Enough to make it leap from zero to 100 km/hour in 3.5 seconds and reach 200 km/hour (124 mph) in 10.5 seconds. Longer gear ratios, made available as an option, make the car top at a speed of 348 km/hour (216 mph), up from the 315 km/hour (195 mph) it develops without them.
The Calavera rides on three-piece Novitec Rosso NF3 double-spoke 20-inch wheels, shoed with high-performance Pirelli tires in sizes 235/30 ZR 20 and 325/25 ZR 20.
Unique Sportcars can put one of these cars together in three months. That includes the air brush painting and the interior, created by Knud Tiroch. Unfortunately, prices have not been made public.
