Ferrari F430 SU35 by Status Design – Click above for high-res image gallery

Lovers of Italian supercars know these prized steeds sit in a league of their own, subject to no comparison. But their respective automakers don't seem to mind being compared with fighter jets, like the Pagani Zonda Tricolore, the Lamborghini Reventon, or this, the Ferrari F430 SU35 by Status Design.

The Russian tuning house took their inspiration from the SU35 fighter, one of the most advanced aircraft to be created in the pre-stealth era. So the attention-grabbing, high-contrast paint job is a good fit. If the body kit bares a striking resemblance to the 430 Scuderia's, that's no coincidence, from the front bumper through the racing stripes to the wheels and door mirrors, with a big old carbon fiber rear wing for good measure.

Status has also recalibrated the ECU and fitted a new exhaust to bump output up from 490 to 525 horsepower, and will gladly bolt a Novitec supercharger kit at the buyer's request for 700 hp. Have a closer look in the substantial image gallery below.

        well sh!t, if they are just giving them away, you can paint mine hot-pink and I won't complain!

      The standard 430 is beautiful, so whats the point of "Putin" on cheap makeup.

      I'm a fan of stock supercars, as they usually spare few expenses and are normally done right the first time. This however is tastefully styled and seems every bit as awesome as the regular F430. But I can't say it's better out of respect for Ferrari :P

        Good heavens! Something tasteful out of Russia! First Anna Chapman, now this, Russia's getting its groove back!

      I rather have the plane, and that Anna Chapman......

      The plane in the background is not the MiG-25 Foxbat, it's the Yak-141 supersonic VSTOL fighter that never made it into production due to all of the economic problems they suffered when it was under development.

      In fact, the engineers from Lockheed Martin went to Russia to check out how they set up the double bearing main exhaust nozzle of the Yak-141 for vectoring the thrust at the rear when they developed the X-35, which led to the F-35.

        Good eyes. I mistaken it for a MIG-25 at first glance too until you mentioned the YAK.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Has anyone noticed that the fighter in the background ISN'T an SU-35?
        • 5 Years Ago
        ... yes, and also that not a single plane there is Su-35.

      Looking at these pics, I think this car is a little too over-done (but not horribly so) for my tastes... and at the same time, I am reminded how gorgeous the regular F430, especially compared to most of Ferrari's current offerings.
        • 5 Years Ago
        I have to disagree, although the 430 is a thing of beauty, the new 458 is simply breathtaking.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Just this morning I was on the "throne" thinking the F430 was a great car starting to look dated. This looks *nasty*... I like it.
