Ferrari F430 Challenge Stradale to Get Prancing Price Tag

We'll have to wait until this fall to get a good look at the Ferrari that lightness begat, but according to the Italian Autobloggers the price will be anything but unweighty. Word is the stripper F430, producing 500+ horsepower to pull 220.5 pounds less weight, will cost as much as a 599GTB, or around $268,000 at the current euros-to-english exchange rate. Still, that'll put it in range of its closest German rival, the Porsche GT2, though more than $40,000 more than the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera. This can't possibly end well for the world's leadfooted bond traders.
