Description

Manufactured from 2004 until 2009, the Ferrari F430 was the successor to the enormously successful 360M. According to its creators, the F430 was at least 70% new compared with the 360. It had a new engine, a new F1 gearbox, a new diff and a brand-new chassis, and although the styling is obviously reminiscent of the 360M’s, in reality, it’s pretty much a ground-up design. Only the bonnet, doors, and roof were carried over; the rest, even the door mirrors, were all new and largely the work of Pininfarina, overseen by Ferrari’s design chief, Frank Stephenson.

The F430’s complex variable-valve-timing system is also lifted straight from the Enzo’s V12, and as ever there is dry-sump lubrication, a very high compression ratio (11.3:1), a variable airflow plenum chamber and an enormous electronic brain making the decisions in the form of not one, but two, Bosch Motronic ME7 ECUs. At 483bhp it has a significant 21% more power than the 360. Its fabulous 4.3-litre V8 will rocket this very sleek Ferrari from 0-62mph in just 3.7 seconds and on to a maximum speed in excess of 196mph.

 

Having been designed initially with a later convertible in mind, the arrival of the Spider in 2005 was no surprise. Weighing only a few pounds more than the Berlinetta and having been designed with the aid of the company’s F1 aerodynamicists, the Spider is just as slippery and its top speed is only a few miles an hour less. The ingenious electric soft-top mechanism works really quickly and makes its predecessor seem almost ponderous by comparison. A soft top was chosen as opposed to a Mercedes-style folding steel panel as Ferrari wanted its glorious red-top engine to remain in view.

 

This lovely example was first registered in March 2006, highly specified with sports suspension, carbon sports seats with four-point harnesses, also ceramic carbon brakes with yellow calipers (full specification is available upon request). The F430 now shows 38,000 kilometres recorded with a recent Ferrari service at 30,000 kilometres. Finished in Blu Avio with a full Navy leather interior, and offered with German registration papers. What better way to enjoy the summer than in this wonderful modern classic supercar.
