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.
