Ferrari F430 Scuderia

Ferarri will unveil its 430 Scuderia at the Frankfurt motor show in September, but it's likely to cost you close to £150,000 to get your hands on one.

Aimed at customers who don't find the standard F430 sporty enough, the Scuderia draws on the company's Formula 1 heritage with its aerodynamic styling and technological innovations.

These innovations include F1 Superfast, a technology that reduces gearchange time to 60 milliseconds and F1-Trac, which combines traction and stability control.

It is also 100kg lighter than the standard F430 and, with its 510bhp 4.3-litre V8 (27bhp more than the standard car), it has a power-to-weight ratio of 375bhp per tonne.

This weight saving comes without compromising safety features, and suggests Ferrari has reacted to pressure for performance manufacturers to reduce carbon dioxide emissions as well.

Seven-time Formula 1 champion Michael Schumacher will unveil the car in Frankfurt.

No prices or an on-sale date in the UK have been confirmed, but the standard F430 costs £128,275 and estimates suggest the Scuderia will cost £20,000 more.
