Ferrari F136 E
2004 - 2009



The engine of the Ferrari F430, Tipo F136, is a 90° V8 engine, designed according to the typical Ferrari flat shaft architecture (180° between the cranks). The application of the experience gained by Ferrari in Formula 1 has allowed an improvement of the engine, compared to its predecessor, in terms of performance, weight and reduction in overall dimensions. Despite a 20% increase in displacement, the weight of the engine has increased by only 4 kg, while performance has significantly improved with a maximum power of 490 HP at 8500 rpm. The engine is extremely compact thanks to a dry sump lubrication system, integrated into the crankcase. Thanks to a deep development of the internal fluid dynamics, the combustion efficiency was optimized, achieving an impressive specific power of 114 HP/litre in compliance with the highest emission standards in force at the time of the car's launch (Euro 4 and LEV 2). With the F136 engine the Ferrari 430 is able to reach 100 km/h from standstill in 4 seconds, 200 km/h in 12.2 seconds and a top speed of over 315 km/h. The engine on display was donated by Ferrari S.p.A. at the Museum of Engines and Mechanisms in 2023 as part of the collaboration activities developed for the international sport and classic car event Targa Florio Classica and Ferrari Tribute.
