Ferrari F430 Spider was unveiled at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show.
The F430 convertible featured a number of technical features
which hinted to the car's F1 breeding. Starting with the innovative
electronic differential (E-diff) - first developed by the racing
division for the Scuderia’s all-conquering F1 cars – which improves
traction and roadholding under all conditions. The Spider also
features the steering wheel-mounted rotary switch, known to the Scuderia’s drivers
as the ‘manettino’, which allows the car’s set-up to be adjusted
easily and quickly.
Designed by Ferrari's preferred styling house, Pininfarina,
the F430 Spider’s sinuous lines were fine-tuned using state-of-the-art
computer aerodynamics simulation programmes usually employed
exclusively by the F1 team.
The Ferrari F430 Spider boasts a compact, fully automatic electric
hood that allows the engine to be seen in all its glory at all
times and which, once lowered, takes up relatively little space,
despite the central-rear engine layout.
