    I think that this is a customer car that just happens to have that protective injection molded plastic piece on for the test drive. I'm not sure why they've given in it the above name.

    360 = F131
    F430 = F131 EVO (Evoluzione)

    I didn't know that.
    But why is Ferrari telling the 430 is a brand new car while it just is a upgradet 360?

    Ferrari claims that about 70% of the parts are new. So they call the F430 a new car.

    yep me too, but only one with F131 Evo on it.
    And the driver turned quickly away when he saw me taken pics.
    Some other drivers waved even at us and the one in the MC12 drove slowly so we could make some nice pics.

    It is not a part number, but the F430's internal project name. It ID's the moulded protection piece which only fits the F430's bumper.

    I wish I had one of those molded front fender covers for mt 360 during track/long drive events...maybe someone can get their hands on some?? I would pay good money for one.

    Pic looks like an ordinary F430 to me.

    The F430s I saw in Maranello last year all had the F131 EVO protective front bumper. Nothing special here, I'm afraid...

    Ciao,

    It's too bad that someone hasn't come up with this idea for every day nose protection. Something you could easily pop on and off. Well thought out, this could be the only way to truly protect from rock chips. Any adventurous types out there?
