    Evolving 360: Ferrari testing heavily reworked version of 360 Modena

    Ferrari is road testing a heavily reworked version of the 360 Modena, dubbed the 430 Modena.

    Likely to appear for the first time at next year’s Geneva motor show, the two-seater will forego the 3.6-liter V8 used in the existing car for an engine derived from the 4.2-liter V8 used in the Maserati Coupe/Spyder and Quattroporte.

    AutoWeek sources say the new powerplant’s capacity of about 4.3 liters will produce 480 hp, up from the 360’s 400 hp, and much closer to the 500-hp 5.0-liter V10 in competitor Lamborghini’s Gallardo. Changes to the Maserati engine include a flat crank, lighter internals and a revised air inlet manifold—all aimed at allowing it to rev close to 9000 rpm.

    480hp would probably push the new Modena from 0-60 significantly faster than the current Stradale, so we'd be seeing times starting with a 3?

    Possibly with an experienced test driver, but basically every magazine has had trouble launching the CS properly. 0-60 isn't that important anyway.
