The Ferrari F430 replacement has been spied testing again, with the latest photos clearly showing the car's radical front headlight styling.
The car, a disguised prototype of the so-called F450, was spotted undergoing handling tests in northern Italy. It is only the second time the prototype has been spied testing - previously only Ferrari F430-based test mules have been spotted running.
The Ferrari F450 will feature a massively enhanced technical spec compared with the outgoing F430.
The F450 will feature engineering ideas from Ferrari’s F1 and GT racing programmes, including radiators ahead of the front wheels, a double-clutch seven-speed transaxle gearbox, understeer-cancelling software and an upgraded version of the Scuderia’s traction control.
The lightweight aluminium structure of the new car will also bring gains over the F430’s rigidity. It is said to reflect Ferrari’s dream of cutting weight to improve handling and emissions, while negating the need for more power.
The F450 may be revealed at December’s LA motor show as a concept featuring a future hybrid powertrain.
