2005 Hamann F430

The new Ferrari F430 is commended as a worthy successor of the F360. No doubt, it gets attention, but not quite as much as the new Hamann-tuned version. From Laupheim Germany, Hamann have a new product range based around the F430, and their first stunning show car is an example of what all their aftermarket parts can do.

Hamann engineers designed a comprehensive aerodynamics package that optimizes the F430’s weight and performance. The Hamann front spoiler gives the F430 a striking and unique character as well as reducing lift on the front axle. At the rear, a newly designed rear diffuser ensures a higher down force at the rear axle. All these add-on parts, including broader side sills, are available in carbon-Kevlar or fiberglass.

Performance plays an important role for the Hamann F430. Engineers have developed a complete high-performance sports exhaust system including a high-performance collector and sports catalysts. The result of this modification is a performance increase of 48 bhp (36 kw). The four-branch sports rear mufflers, specially designed by Hamann, release an absolutely powerful and sonorous sound.

More exact driving characteristics can be expected of Hamann F430 thanks to the specially designed suspension. This suspension can be adjusted in height as well as in rebound and compression. Thus, the F430 reacts more agile and more precisely to steering changes.

The multi-piece PG3 in classic five-spoke rims give a powerful impression and provide a good view of the Hamann sports brake system. The PG3 is available in 9×19 at the front and 11.5×19 in the rear.

The interior of the Hamann Ferrari F430 is a successful mixture of luxurious and sporty features. An exclusive full leather interior in all colors as well as a high-quality set of mats give an elegant impression. With the corresponding racing seats and sills, the Hamann interior creates a real motor sports feeling.
