    Ryalex Design is proud to announce it's first product, a new carbon fiber bumper for the F430. Rob has permitted an initial commercial message during the transaction phase of Ryalex Design's sponsorship of Ferrarichat.com.

    Responding to public sentiment about the soft, rounded intakes, this new front bumper combines enlarged grilles and sharper angles to create a much more aggresive appearance, and edges that fit the curves of the side vents. The bumper is also monochromatic, creating smoother curves and enhancing the depth of the intakes.

    It is custom made in the USA of only the best carbon fiber components. It will be in a limited production run of only 200 units.

    Contact us today to get your name on the list!

    Please visit our website at www.ryalexdesign.com .
    If the screen comes up white, enlarge your viewing window. If you have other suggestions about the website, please address them in a PM to me. I am preparing more renderings of the product and will post them here very soon.

    Nice work!

    Now, get to work on that 360...like NOW! ! ! !

    Less rounded, and shrink those headlights.

    Best!

    WOW! At first I thought it was a joke!

    Congrats! Very cool idea, and I think there is a real market for this, as the front and rear of the new 430 do not seem in "sync" from the factory. Personally, I dislike the rear and think I will adjust to the front, but that would be much more difficult to redesign.

    Any pricing estimates yet, or are those by request only?

    So how much wind tunnel testing will you be doing, to make sure your redesign has no ill effects, like additional lift?

    Ryan,

    The best of luck my friend! It's a good thing that someone out there cares about making Ferraris attractive again. It sure doesn't seem like Pininfarina is too worried about it anymore.

    Great redesign Ryan.....!! Seriously......it's huge improvement.

    Can you put me on the waiting list for your new bumper ? I'll buy the used on from Dr. Strangelove's recently crashed 348 if it helps me get one sooner......heh.

    It is a question. Sometimes form follows function . . . agree? I see a significant change in the center, who is to say there may not be a change in the air flow over the nose.

    Answering your question, I have make changes to my cars to help with their handling. If you removed the airdam on our 308s do you think it might get even lighter at speed then it does now?

    keep darth's thoughts in mind. there will be plenty of 360's out there that want to look a little different, especially as the prices go down once the 430 is released. this should be a good market to hit.

    best of luck Ryan.

    Ryan, I'm a bit late getting to the game and seeing your venture, but you website and overall presentation looks top notch - especially for a relatively small site without many pages. Good use of fonts and overall page design too. I wish I had found a niche like this when I was younger before life and family commitments consumed everything else I owned.

    Good Luck - you're off to a great start.

    I love your 430 redesign partly because it does improve the looks while not looking like a ricer kit add on...subtle, but better. Now fix the back end of this thing.
