Lot 182 - 2006 Ferrari F430 Spider
|Sold - £107,520
- Low mileage and good history
- Manual gearbox
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 tail lights 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.
This Ferrari F430 Spider was originally registered on 28th April 2006. It is finished in the fabulous colour combination of Grigio Silverstone and Sand interior. The specification is good with the car having been fitted with the following options when new; aluminium brake calipers, electric seats, Suderia badges and a high-power stereo system. The condition is certainly commensurate with the cars low mileage, the car is kept in professional storage facilities when not being used. This is a genuine UK supplied right hand drive example and has the attractive benefit of being fitted with a manual gearbox. These are great fun cars to drive with ample power available under your right foot and an engine note that puts a smile on your face. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 5th July 2024 together with a history folder. A delightful example and well worth a look.
