Ferrari F430 Calavera – it’s skulltastic

Ferrari F430 Calavera fq

The Ferrari F430 is about to make way for its replacement that is set to debut at the Frankfurt show. Ferrari itself is saying goodbye with a special edition to be auctioned off for charity (read news item). Now a pair of German firms has collaborated to send off the F430 in its own unique way. A joint effort by a company called Unique Sportscars and famous Ferrari tuners Novitec Rosso has seen the creation of the F430 Calavera.

First thing to do was strip the F430 of any class or charm this has been done by a unique tattoo-style paint job by airbrush artist Knud Tiroch. From there, Novitec has given the F430 its full workover, complete with twin superchargers to deliver 707 horsepower — more than Novitec’s own 656hp F430 Evoluzione — plus 20″ rims and an adjustable suspension. Unique and Novitec have also modified the interior and also added a strip of daytime running lights along the front splitter, integrating into the bespoke Novitec body kit.

The performance mods help the custom exotic hit 100kph in 3.5 seconds and push on to a claimed top speed of 347 kph. Unique Sportscars says they’ll only build 11 examples, and with such varied tastes in this crazy world it might just sell them all.
