Manual - Exceptional Service History

United KingdomLocation: United Kingdom

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.

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 it's 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 manual example is presented in the sunning and very desirable colour combination of Nero Daytona with Tan "Daytona-style" seats. The car supplied new by Maranello, Egham in November 2007 and has since been maintained exclusively by the main dealer network and has a full and complete service history, the most recent of which was in April of this year. The car has covered a total of 19,000 miles and has had just 4 owners since new. The car has been extremely well maintained and is today offered in superb condition, complete with all books, spare keys, factory supplied car cover and tools and past service invoices. The striking colour combination and excellent service history make this 430 Spider an extremely desirable example of Ferrari's last manual Spider.
