“First gear stretches out to 8500 rpm, howling to make your shanks shake. Second gear should get you 60 mph in about 3.6 seconds and a misdemeanour conviction in four seconds flat. Keep the hammer down through third, fourth, and fifth, and sixth will burn your scalp clean off at 186 mph” – Car and Driver 2005
Michael Schumacher spent a lot of time testing the 430 Scuderia when it was being developed, carefully applying the method that made him unique on the racetrack for many years.
Detailed All the ingredients were there: a light and powerful car, comfortable and ergonomic, with an incredible weight/power ratio; ground-effect aerodynamics, which makes the car more effective; at higher speeds; powerful quick-response braking guaranteed by calipers and carbon-ceramic discs, and in particular the Manettino mounted on the steering wheel that allows the driver to adjust the car set-up according to the driver’s requirements.
During his racing career, the seven-time World Champion’s work on the Manettino and steering wheel-mounted controls, in close association with the engineers and electricians, was one of the reasons for his extraordinary success on the racing track.
This is why when you saw him at the wheel of the 430 Scuderia on the old Nurburgring, you instantly knew what he was looking for in his continuous, methodical adjustments of the controls that coordinate gear change timing, traction, suspension compliance and stability.
This model has therefore profited from the incomparable sensitivity of this driver throughout its development. And now this experience is available for everyone.
We at the Classic Throttle Shop are so proud to offer to the market this amazing piece of history from the Scuderia of Ferrari.
