430

The 430 was launched in 1987 to be sold alongside the 425, and finally replaced it in 1989. It was equipped with the new 2.8-liter fuel-injected engine from the 228, and was intended primarily for export markets. The power output reached 250 hp for versions without a catalytic converter, and the top speed approached 150 mph. Such performance, paired with the luxurious refinement of the interior, made the 430 a contender at the very top end of the luxury-sport sedan market. Only 995 examples were built between 1987 and 1994. The new four-valve-per-cylinder heads were adopted on the 430 from 1991, increasing the power output to 279 hp. The car bore the 430 4v nametag, to differentiate it from the three-valve model, which was continued. Both models benefited from the latest styling upgrades: new, slimmer headlights, a wider front grille, new bumpers and sills, seven-spoke alloys, and spoilers on the trunk lid and at the base of the windscreen.
