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 manual example was first delivered in July 2005 and is presented in Rosso Corsa with Nero Leather seats, Nero Leather Dash, Nero Carpets and Carbon driving zone. Externally the car benefits from Rosso Brake Callipers and Scuderia Wing Shields. The car has always been used sparingly and has been serviced by main dealers only. Most recently the car was serviced at 9,736 Miles by HR Owen. Today the car has covered just 12,000 Miles and as can be witnessed by the photographs the car is presented in excellent condition all round.
