RHD - Extremely High Specification - 2 Owners

United KingdomLocation: United Kingdom

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 example offered for sale is an extremely well equipped car with many very desirable optional extras. It was first delivered in October 2008 by Graypaul. It is presented in "Bianco Avus" with Red Leather seats, roll hoops, dash, door cards and carpets. The fully electric "Daytona" style seats are finished with neat and contrasting white piping. The interior features an almost essential Carbon Driving Zone, a Carbon rimmed steering wheel and the Rev Counter in Rosso. Finally the interior is equipped with the expensive and high quality Bose upgraded stereo system with I-Pod connection including Hi-Fi boost for when the roof is open. For the exterior the car features full Carbon Ceramic Brakes, Rosso painted Callipers, parking sensors front and rear, a Rosso roof and Scuderia Wing Shields.

The car has had just two owners from new and DK Engineering have stored the car since 2010. Most recently, in August 2014, the car received a major service in our workshops.

Today the mileage is 7,550 Miles from new and the car is available to view immediately in our showrooms just outside London.
