2007 Ferrari F430
Spy photographers have caught the new Ferrari F430 Challenge Stradale on the streets of Maranello. In Ferrari-speak, Challenge Stradale means less weight—about 220 lbs. less—and more power. Much of that weight is shed inside, where carbon fiber is used extensively—notice the shot of the carbon-fiber interior door panel. Magnesium wheels also shed a few pounds. An additional 30 horsepower or so puts the F430 CS around 520, bumping the power-to-weight ratio from 6.9 lbs/hp for a regular F430 to just 6. That places the Challenge Stradale ahead of the Porsche 911 Turbo and Chevrolet Corvette Z06 against which we tested a ”regular” F430 back in September, although the Ferrari won that comparo anyway. We expect to see this newest F430 going (quickly) to customers early in 2007.

They need to redesign the front bumper. That thing is ugly. I think it will be interesting to see how people compare this to the 911 Turbo. From what I have seen, the 911 is a better performing car that costs 100 thousand less. Now Ferrari is trying to make you pay even more for a car that comes with less features then the 911T. I dont know why anyone would buy it.

It's the 430's version of the 360's Challenge Stradale.
