Ferrari 430 Spider Bio Fuel Concept
Ferrari has chosen Detroit as the venue for the presentation at a bio-fuel powered F430 Spider, in recognition of growing interest in North America in alternative sources of energy.
The development of an engine powered by the bio-fuel E85 comes as part of a research and development program announced during the Technological Innovation Conference held at Maranello last June as part of our 60th Anniversary Celebrations.
The Ferrari F430 Spider Biofuel uses an 85% ethanol mix and was developed with using experience gleaned in competition. By developing this technological demonstration prototype however, Ferrari has proved category that it can offer the technological solutions demanded by the market demands without impinging on the distinctly sporty, high performance character and supreme driving pleasure of the unique cars it builds at Maranello.
