Under the hood of the Ferrari 458 Scuderia
The Ferrari 458 Scuderia at the Frankfurt Autoshow is to feature a 600 horse power engine(441 kW). If you want something to compare that to, the Ferrari 458 Italia only had 562 Horse power(413 kW). Other enhancements include enhanced brakes, tighter suspensions, stickier tires, remapped ECU, and a tweaked exhaust system. Underneath that, the Ferrari 458 Scuderia will weigh less than 2900 lbs, compared to 3042 lbs of the original Ferrari 458 italia. Just to give you a ball point to how fast that would be, the Ferrari 458 Italia can reach 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3.4 seconds. With all these new enhancements from weight reduction to engine upgrades, could you imagine how many seconds would it take to reach from 0 to 100 km/h now?

The original Ferrari F430 could only manage 4.0 seconds. The 430 Scuderia is 0.4 seconds faster than the original F430, and 0.2 seconds slower than the Ferrari 458 Italia. Despite being a few years behind, that is pretty impressive. Now the question yet to be answered, how fast will the Ferrari 458 Scuderia be?
