It was the replacement for the 360 was produced between 2004 and 2009 and was replaced by the 458 Italia. Its natural rivals are the Lamborghini Gallardo, the Audi R8 and Porsche 911 Turbo. Designed by the Carrozzeria Pininfarina (Turin), in collaboration with the Ferrari itself. Built on an aluminum chassis and a body that is a tribute to former F1 Ferrari156 “Sharknose” which led to the formal world championship 1 to Phil Hill in 1961, because of its two front air intakes features. Its design began to take major aerodynamic, with a flat bottom and a rear diffuser capable of generating up to 150 kg of downforce on the rear axle and a design of the supports of thought mirrors to bring more air intakes engine air.
0 - 100 km/h
Rear-central provision, V8, 90º, 4308 cubic centimeters. Atmospheric. DOHC 4 valves per cylinder. Automatic control of the opening phase of the exhaust valves and intake. Cast-aluminum construction in sand molds for single use. Assembled by hand.
It rated at 490 hp. at 8500 rpm and a torque of 465 Nm. at 5250 rpm. Compression ratio of 11.3 to 1. Mounted in rear center position, sprint, camshafts high crossing, puffs muñequillas plane 180 degrees and dry sump crankshaft. It has a specific power of 114 hp. per liter. (Against the motor 111 360). Despite being more engine displacement and have 90 Cv. more than 360, only weighs 4 kg.
A rear wheel, with robotic semiautomatic box (F1), 6 speeds. It is capable of shifting gears in 150 milliseconds, much faster than the manual model. E-Diff electronic differential controlling the amount of power transmitted to each of the rear wheels as a function of the rotational speed of each wheel, accelerator pedal position and steering wheel and acceleration. Technology developed by Ferrari for its F1 cars that improves the directionality, acceleration and stability, allowing a reduction in 3 seconds lap time at Fiorano and reach over 315 km/h.
The structure is made entirely of aluminum. Independent suspension both trains, double triangles formed by overlaid with active suspension system and active dampers. Fairing completely flat bottom, with rear diffuser accelerates air flow reduces drag and produces up to 150 kg of downforce on the rear axle.
