It is our pleasure to present this absolutely pristine, collector-grade 2006 Ferrari F430. Unveiled in 2004 at the Paris Motor Show, the F430 was a development of the preceding F360, sharing the latter’s aluminum chassis, roofline, doors and window glass. With a scant 779-miles on the odometer at the time of cataloging, this F430 is accompanied by its books and original window sticker and is offered for auction by its owner out of Boston, MA.
The F430, designed by Pininfarina, shares styling elements with some of Ferrari’s great cars, such as the Enzo, Testarossa and 1961 Tipo 156 Formula 1 car. The Spider’s impeccable body wears its factory-applied Rosso Corsa paint which, according to the seller, remains in outstanding condition (1 small blemish on the lower passenger side fender can be seen in the photo gallery). Notable external features include, Scuderia shields, Red Brake calipers and Ball-polished Wheels dressed in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.
Appointed in tan leather, the interior cabin of this F430 is in like-new condition (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery). Highly desirable Daytona-style electronically-operated seats are factory equipped along with a carbon fiber lower cabin zone and a roll bar finished in upholstery color. All gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional.
Beneath the F430’s transparent engine cover is a mid-mounted 32-valve 4.3L engine that develops 483 HP and 343lb/ft of torque. Power is transferred through a rare and desirable 6-speed manual transmission, allowing the Spider to accelerate to 60 from a standstill in approximately 4 seconds while continuing to a top speed in excess of 196 MPH. Stopping power is handled by Brembo brakes and an associated Bosch electronics ABS package.
The sale of this F430 will be accompanied by a Ferrari VIP Certificate, books in their leather pouch, its original window sticker and a clean title. Considered by many to be one of the greatest and most usage contemporary Ferraris, this F430, with its low mileage and exceptionally well-preserved condition, would be a fitting addition to any car collection.
