First announced on the 24th August 2004 - The F430 signalled 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.
The F430 Spider was debuted in Geneva and features Ferraris most advanced fabric folding roof to date. A huge amount of development on Ferrari's behalf ensured that the Spider retained the torsional rigidity of its berlinetta counterpart, and it showed. EVO magazine thought so fondly of the Spider that they commented "The question isn't why you would want the Spider version of the F430 but why you wouldn't." The Spider has everything that makes the berlinetta a great car but with the ability to hear the supreme V8 all the more clearly.
This RHD example was first delivered on the 1st March 2006 to Staffordshire, England. Supplied in its original and specification of Rosso Corsa over a Crema leather Hide interior and Rosso carpets. The interior is additionally appointed with extremely rare and most sought after carbon sports seats with matching Rosso stitching and embossed Cavallinos on each headrest as well as Giallo gauges, a Carbon Driving Zone and a hand held factory fire extinguisher. Outside, the exterior has Nero brake calipers mounted behind the 19" 5 spoke alloy wheels.
Today the car presents in exceptional condition throughout and has covered just 7,100 Miles from new. It has just received a new set of tyres and a major service, and the current owner has owned it for just under ten years and is only the second owner. Accompanied by its complete and original book pack, spare key, Ferrari tool kit and tracking fobs this superb 430 Spider is located in our showrooms just outside London and available to view immediately.
