500HP “Green” Ferrari

Ogar

 Ferrari has introduced a 500HP “green” Ferrari that runs on E85.  Read an intriguing article about it here.  Better yet, watch a short clip about it here.

The F430 Spider Bio Fuel runs on the familiar mix of 85% natural ethanol and 15% gasoline, which results in a modest 10HP power bump and fuel economy that improves by 5% over the standard gas-only V8. So that means that the sweet-sounding 4.3-liter plant is now good for a true 500 HP.

 Wow.
