Ferrari F430 Spider drifting and donuts

Posted on 12 June, 2012

The F430 Spyde is powered by a 4.3 liter naturally aspirated V8 with 490HP (360 kW) at 8500RPM and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque at 5250RPM, 80% of which is available below 3500rpm.

Despite a 20% increase in displacement, engine weight grew by only 4 kg and engine dimensions were decreased, for easier packaging.

The connecting rods, pistons and crankshaft were all entirely new, while the four-valve cylinder head, valves and intake trumpets were copied directly from Formula 1 engines, for ideal volumetric efficiency.

The F430 has a top speed of 315 km/h (196 mph). 0-100 km/h in 4.0 seconds.
