The Ferrari F430 chassis is the evolution of the F360 and known internally simply as the "Evo". Changes for the F430 include improved aerodynamamics that substantially improve the downforce, an entirely new 4.3 liter 490 hp V-8 engine, and improved Brembo brakes.
Also included on the F430 are the E-Diff, a computer-controlled limited slip differential which can vary the distribution of torque based on inputs such as steering angle and lateral acceleration, and Ferrari's manettino steering wheel-mounted control that allows drivers to select from five different settings which modify the vehicle's ESP system, "Skyhook" electronic suspension, transmission behavior, throttle response.
