After taking a look at Anderson Germany’s Ferrari California offering, we were excited to find out the tuning firm had just released a package for the Ferrari F430 Scuderia.

Their custom touch starts with mild modifications, including an almost stealthy, blue’ish matte-gray, transforming the car into a menacing machine rather than a prancing exotic.

And a menacing machine it is, with Anderson bumping the standard 508-hp to an impressive 575 figure through the aid of an intake system, lightweight exhaust system and ECU re-tune. It’s worth mentioning that even more performance is realized with the tuning package since the exhaust offers a weight savings of 53 lbs.

On the outside, in addition to the wicked color change, are carbon fiber goodies to contrast the subtle gray. The mirrors and rear diffuser are swapped out for carbon fiber counterparts, while several of the engine covers are also eye candy along with the the power plant. Rounding off the exterior modifications is a set of 20-inch staggered wheels – featuring an awesomely wide 20×12 setup with 325/25/20 rubber.

Of course the interior wasn’t overlooked with more carbon fiber accents and Alcantara pieces. Anderson even opted to upgrade the stereo with aftermarket amplifiers, speakers and a subwoofer.

We’ll take the whole package, minus the audio mods – there’s just no point listening to anything but the Scud’s exhaust note.
