Concept: Ferrari 430 Spider Biofuel

By KBB.com Editors on February 7, 2008 7:12 AM
To demonstrate that it's at least thinking about the environment, Ferrari has developed an ethanol-swilling concept version of the F430 Spider. By modifying the fuel system and engine CPU, Ferrari created an E85-compatible engine that produces 10 more horsepower (a nice, round 500), four percent more torque and five percent less CO2 than that in the production F430. It's only a concept for now, but Ferrari has stated that if E85 ethanol were more readily available in its key markets, production and sales of an alternative fuel-powered Ferrari might be justifiable.
