When Ferrari launches a new generation sports car on the market, everyone is well aware that they should expect at least three versions: a coupe, a spyder, and a Scuderia. We’ve already had our fill of the Ferrari 458 Italia Coupe and have some idea as to the Spyder version, but this new rendering of a Scuderia model got us thinking. What should we expect from Ferrari’s most fiery version of their newest sports car?
If this rendering from Milanno ArtWorks is any indication as to the design of the Scuderia, then we can expect a much more aggressive design illustrated by the sharp edges of the bumper followed by the sharp edge design of the front lights. Since the Scuderia name is synonymous with weight reduction, expect a weight loss similar to that of the 430 Scuderia, which lost about 220 lbs compared to the standard model. This will be done with a mostly aluminum body, since Ferrari has already made it clear that the would stick to this material other than using carbon fiber like the competition.
Power for the newest Scuderia monster may come from a turbocharged V8 that will push out anywhere from 590 HP to 700 HP. At one point, Ferrari boss, Luca di Montezemolo, said that a 458 Scuderia would not be produced because the 458 Italia was just so advanced, so if rumors are circulating that a Scuderia will follow, then we expect to see a power output that will blow our minds. The only problem is, we won’t see it until at least the end of 2013.
