Wimmer Presents Modified Ferrari F430 Scuderia
Amazingly enough, the Germans thought the Ferrari needed more power, so the Italian sports car got a power pack which consists of a new Wimmer engine control software and sport valve exhaust system with remote control. These modifications help the Scuderia’s 4.3L V8 engine to produce 38 hp more than the stock output of 483 hp.
The power increase helps the car can reach a top speed of 321 km/h. The Wimmer Scuderia accelerates form zero to 100 km/h in 3.84 seconds (oddly enough, the standard version is a little faster), to 200 km/h in 11.03 seconds and to 300 km/h in 34.9 seconds. The tuner also fitted the Ferrari with a KW HLS system (Hydraulic Lift System) that lifts up the front axle with 45 mm if needed.
The Scuderia also got some new rims from BBS: 19 inch F1 alloy rims with Dunlop 225/35 R 19 tires in the front and 305/30 R19 tires in the back.
The F430 Scuderia, which was unveiled by Michael Schumacher at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show, is 100 kg lighter than the standard model and more powerful. The car derived from the original model as a successor of the Challenge Stradale and it’s Ferrari’s response to Porsche’s RS models and to the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. Improving such a car could not have been easy.
