But it's not all like that, for it comes with improved engineering to make the car handle better. For example it has an undertray giving it spectacular road-holding. This means you gain grip as you speed up, and grip is quite useful if you give the F430 Scuderia the opportunity to reach its top speed of 198 mph. Ferrari claims that around their test track, Fiorano Circuit, it is faster than a Ferrari Enzo.
On Top GearEdit
When tested on Top Gear Jeremy Clarkson said "It appears to have been welded together by apes", referring to the exposed metalwork. He then said that 'Scuderia' was a "silly name", as it translates as 'team'. However, he also said that it was a knife-edge racer, which is how a Ferrari should be. He was deeply impressed with its performance, and said that it blew away any Lamborghini. When given to The Stig to take round the Top Gear Test Track, it completed the circuit in an impressive 1 minute 19.7 seconds - as fast as the Nissan GT-R, but faster than the Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren (1:20.9) and the Porsche Carrera GT (1:19.8). However, it was still slower than the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560-4 (1:19.5).
