35Romeo Ferraris goes Stradale with latest Abarth 500 mod

The Italian tuning house has taken on everything from Land Rovers to Corvettes, but their specialty is the Fiat 500.

3Back in Black: Ferrari 430CS caught testing...again

We know, we know... you've already seen spy shots of the upcoming Ferrari F430 Challenge Stradale. But we can't help but get excited for what promises to be one of the most tantalizing applications of the more-power-less-weight battle cry. We've seen what an improvement the formula made to the F430's predecessor, the 360 Modena, so stripping weight off the already faster-than-spit F430, tightening it up and squeezing a few extra prancing horses out of its screaming powerplant should make for an

You'd think someone would take pity on the poor Ferrari and give it a bath. Look for a production version of the 520 hp steed to go on sale sometime before summer.

7SPY SHOTS: Ferrari F430 Challenge Stradale

Ferrari aficionados and motorheads the world over have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of the Ferrari F430 Challenge Stradale. The previous 360 CS took the 360 Modena coupe, put it on a diet and gave it some stripes. The result was a leaner and meaner prancing horse that put the 360 Challenge race-car into street-legal form. The very idea of taking the already superlative F430 and giving it the same treatment was simply mouthwatering.
