First announced on the 24th August 2004 - The F430 signaled the arrival of a brand new generation of Ferrari 8-cylinder models. This new car took Ferrari's extraordinary achievements with aluminium technology, that begun with the 360 Modena, to a whole new level offering a series of extremely significant innovations directly derived from the Ferrari Formula 1 single-seaters.
Two of these innovations were world firsts for production cars being the electronic differential (E-Diff) and the steering wheel-mounted switch (better known to the Formula 1 Scuderia's drivers as "manettino"), which manages the integrated systems governing the vehicles dynamics.
The F430 has a compact 4,300 cc 90° V8 engine, which punches out 490 hp to achieve a specific output of 114 hp/litre, also providing the Ferrari with a power to weight ratio of 2.8 kg/hp (dry weight); thus helping the 430 to achieve a most impressive 0-62 mph acceleration time of just 4 seconds and a top speed in excess of 196 mph. Another particular advance made by the 430 was the aerodynamic design that embodied the very latest competition technologies, specifically the flat underbody and large rear diffuser to help increase downforce.
This "F1" example was first delivered in March 2006 and is presented in the stunning and rare colour of Rosso Scuderia. It is equipped with Crema Leather Electric seats, a Nero Leather Dash, Rosso Carpets and Red stitching throughout. Externally the car benefits from Rosso Brake Callipers and Enamel Scuderia Wing Shields. The car has always been used sparingly and as such has covered just 8,100 Miles from new. The current fastidious owner has kept the car in what we would consider concours condition having covered just over 1,000 miles over the last 3 years. The car is presented in stunning and near unmarked condition, exactly as you would expect for this ultra low mileage. It is accompanied by its spare key, all its original books, tools and fitted car cover. It has an excellent service history having its last annual maintenance in November 2011 at 7,000 miles. A fresh MOT was applied in May 2012 and the car is ready to be viewed immediately. An opportunity not to be missed!
