Ferrari F450 to be unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show

5 or 6 years seems to be around Ferrari`s V8 mid-engined coupes life span. The F430 replaced the F360 in 2004, so it`s time for this to bow to a brand new hot Italian. So, the replacement, codenamed the F142 for now, should make the first appearance to the public at the Frankfurt Auto Show this September.

The F430 runs with a 4.3-liter engine producing 490 hp, and its replacement auto should upgrade on to 500 hp at least by having that engine enlarged - 4.5-liters, hence this likely name modification to F450. The growing strenght will not be quite the only element making this auto quicker, the elements from 2007 Millechili - the more eco-friendly concept will make also the vehicle lighter.

The rendering presented is what we expect from Ferrari at least with the F450. A few rumors have Millechili also being used as part of a great inspiration for the design of this auto.
