The Ferrari F430 was produced by Ferrari from 2004 to 2009. A successor to the Ferrari 360, it debuted at the 2004 Paris Motor Show. Designed by Pininfarina, under the guidance of Frank Stephenson, the body styling of the F430 was revised from its predecessor, the Ferrari 360, to improve its aerodynamic efficiency. 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 taillights and interior vents were added and the car's name was etched into the Testarossa-styled driver's side mirror. The large oval openings in the front bumper were reminiscent of Ferrari racing models from the 60s, specifically the 156 ‘sharknose’ Formula One car and 250 TR61 Le Mans cars of Phil Hill.
Originally registered on 4th December 2006, this beautiful Ferrari Spider has covered a mere 15,559 miles from new and as such presents in excellent order throughout. The Nero Daytona coachwork has a deep rich shine to the finish which is complemented by the Crema leather interior with black contrast stitching and includes heated seats. This F430 has been owned by a Ferrari enthusiast who has maintained the car well with every service expressly being carried out by Ferrari main dealers, nine in total, with the last service which we are informed was a major service, in October 2020. The specification includes five spoke Stealth alloy wheels, red brake calipers as well as Scuderia Ferrari Shields. Supplied with a V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate valid until January 2022, the leather wallet containing the service history with invoices and spare key, this right hand drive UK supplied Ferrari F430 Spider is a very collectable example.
