These are the first pictures of a complete Ferrari F450 prototype caught testing out in the open.
Although the Ferrari F450 remains disguised, this is the first full prototype seen out 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.
