With so many of us vehicle owners looking to preserve our beloved vehicles in today’s economic downturn, the AutoAnything team is also starting to assemble Auto Parts guides to let you know all of the key vehicle parts that you should maintain in tip-top form. Two replacement parts that have already been covered are Turbochargers and Air Pumps, two parts that many performance minded drivers may need to stay on top of.

Ferrari F430 Replacement to be Turbocharged and Lighter Weight

The F430 has been one of Ferrari’s top selling models for several years now.  Although it still looks like one of the best supercars on the street, it is due for replacement.  Codenamed the F142, the 430’s successor will be even lighter than the current Scuderia version which weighs a scant 2,750 pounds.  Some of that weight will be shed from the engine by moving to a smaller V8 than the current 4.3-liter.  To make up for the loss of displacement, Ferrari will probably be turbocharging the new model to give it that extra boost and maintain peak performance. It also seems likely that the F142 will look similar to Ferrari’s Mille Chilli concept, pictured above. 

Ferrari’s goal to reduce emissions by 40% by 2012 is, to say the least, very admirable.  Using lighter materials and smaller engines is one logical step for the Italian car maker, so you can expect to see similar treatments across the Ferrari lineup in the future.
