The F430 has been around for the past 4 years and has recently released its sexy racing counterpart “Scuderia” which just became available in the 16M spyder version costing $500,000 million US dollars. Ferrari is however anticipating a replacement that is to hit showroom floors in late 2010 or early 2011. No press release has been issued but Ferrari has been seen test driving a new mule around the race track, which can only mean that he next F1 car will be around soon enough. Here are some pictures of the mule being tested. Rumor has it it will be called the F500 others say F450 but the bottom line is it will be the best Ferrari ever made.
This new beast is supposed to continue boosting a V8 and still carry the famous mid engine, rear wheel drive system, and the magnesium frame and composite brakes as always. It is rumored to have already hit a sub 3 second 0-60 and is lapping some impressive Enzo times despite being so early in production. I guess only time will tell but one thing is for sure, with the F430 market already dropping to low 100’s, it will make the F430 affordable in the high 80’s and that my friends is worth the wait.
