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 wonderful UK supplied example was registered new on 1st March 2008 and has covered a mere 14,780 miles from new. Fitted with the paddle shift F1 automatic gearbox, this Ferrari is presented in Rosso Corsa paintwork over a contrasting creme leather interior. This Ferrari is in excellent condition throughout, the paintwork is excellent as is the interior which shows very little sign of age. Having had just one former keeper from new this Ferrari has been maintained and serviced where necessary and has been dry stored at a performance car storage facility during the current vendors tenure.

Accompanying the Ferrari is a history file which includes all relevant documents and booklets as well as the original toolkit and tyre pump. This excellent example is offered directly from a significant private collection. It looks superb and sounds fantastic when on song and is ready to be enjoyed immediately.
