Our buddy Luca and his minions down Italia way procured new spy shots of Ferrari's soon-to-be F430 Challange Stradale. That's the streetable version of the lighter Challenge cars used by gentlemen racers in Ferrari's worldwide series. No word on release yet, but it'll likely have an upclocked version of Ferrari's 4.3-liter V8, producing 525 hp at 8500 rpm and 350 ft-lbs of torque at 5750 rpm. We've heard weight savings will amount to around 220.5 lbs off the F430's 3,196-pound bulk, reportedly come by way of carbon-fiber inner doors and rear cooling grille, and magnesium sport wheels.
