Ferrari F430 Challenge Car 2008
The F430 Challenge is a non-road legal variant of the road-going Ferrari F430, it has been extensively modified by Ferrari to boost its on circuit performance with extensive weight reduction and suspension changes. Just like in previous Ferrari Challenge cars the engine has largely remained the same as on the production road cars except for some enhanced breathing by means of a racing exhaust system and some engine management tweaks and fine blueprinting. Furthermore the body styling has received very few styling changes with the Formula One inspired single central nut BBS wheels covering the enormous carbon brakes.

Other modifications over original challenge spec are, adjustable Ohlin dampers (developed by SBR on our 430 GTC car), uprated Engine ECU’s, improved gearshift with TCU, passenger seat, repackable race exhaust system and steel brake conversion.
