Background information, features, pricing, and specifications for the 2005 Ferrari F430 Modena.
Ferrari introduced its mid-range sports car, the Modena, in 2000. It was available in both coupe (Berlinetta) or open-top (Spider). The Modena is replaced, or what Ferrari calls 'evolutionized' by their newest model, the F430 for 2005, so the tradition of small displacement, high-output engines continue. The F40 is still Ferrari's entry-level sports car but nothing about it is fundamental. It still has the extruded aluminum space frame, suspension, and the powerful V8. The new F430 needed to lose weight so the styling for 2005 is considerably more aerodynamic. The only available powerplant is Ferrari's 4.3-liter, longitudinal V8 cranking out 483-horsepower, 88 more than the Modena. The ferocious engine is able to get the car to 60-MPH in 3.5-seconds.
Base MSRP for the Berlinetta is $174,585; the Spider starts at $198,667.
