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 supplied in new in Nero Daytona with Nero Daytona leather seats with contrasting white stitching by Maranello in March 2006. Supplied from new with a very high specification which includes a trimmed internal roll bar, integrated phone system, IPOD connectivity with Sat NAV, carbon dash, Giallo rev counter, Scuderia Wingshields, and Giallo calipers. The car is accompanied by its spare keys, original books, complete tool kit, and tyre inflator. From new the car has covered 25,000 miles is presented in superb condition. This 430 benefits from a full main dealer service history and will be given a major service at DK as part of the sale.
