The Ferrari F430 was produced from 2004 to 2009 and was the successor to the 360. It debuted at the 2004 Paris Motor Show and was designed by Pininfarina under the guidance of Frank Stephenson, with the body styling of the F430 revised from its predecessor. Although the drag coefficient remained the same, downforce was greatly enhanced. Despite sharing the same basic Alcoa aluminium chassis, roof line, doors and glass, the car looked significantly different from the 360. A great deal of Ferrari heritage was included in the exterior design. At the rear, the Enzo's tail lights and interior vents were added. The car's name was etched into the Testarossa-styled driver's side mirror and the large oval openings in the front bumper are reminiscent of Ferrari racing models from the 60s, specifically the 156 ‘Sharknose’ Formula One car and 250 TR61 Le Mans cars of Phil Hill.
This absolutely superb lefthand drive example is presented in Rosso with black leather interior and was imported from Italy in 2016 which is when it was purchased by the present owner. It comes with air conditioning and climate control, cruise control, electric leather sports seats and electric door mirrors. The owner has also just had diamond stitched leather carpet overlays inserted with red stitching which finishes off the interior to look as new. A fabulous example of these popular sports cars and offered in exemplary condition throughout.
