Presented to you here is a genuinely beautiful and low mileage example of a Ferrari F430 F1 Spider, now available for viewing at the Renaissance Classics showroom.
Introduced in 2004 as a replacement to the 360, the Pininfarina created F430 design shared several cues from Ferrari heritage. The rear lights and engine cover emulated the mighty Enzo, the wingmirrors were styled like the infamous Testarossa and the large oval intakes hinted influence from the marque’s racing cars of the 60’s. These visual references created a distinguished, attractive and more aerodynamic new appearance, despite the chassis remaining primarily unchanged from the predecessor. In addition to the aesthetic changes, the F430 received an entirely new engine, braking system and differential.
The biggest notable change with the F430; was the engine. The architecture of this new, Naturally Aspirated, 4.3 litre V8 engine consisted of entirely redesigned pistons, connecting rods and crank shafts, while the cylinder head shared components taken straight from Formula 1 racing engines. This development allowed the engine to rev all the way up to 8500rpm and produce over 480bhp and 340lbft of torque. The combination of this powerful engine with the 430’s aluminum chassis, propelled the car from 0-60 in an incredible sub 4seconds! It is also worth noting that this new power plant actually signified the end of the “Dino” racing program V8 engine design that the company had been using for 50 years prior to its creation.
As to be expected from such low mileage; the bodywork and interior on this particular example are in fantastic condition. The superb colour combination of Nero Daytona Metallic paint against the Crema leather Interior, is not only striking but also improves the collector appeal of the vehicle due to it being a rarer colour choice for Ferrari’s of this era. The vehicle was incredibly well specified from new and comes with a lot of desirable options, a summary of the vehicle’s equipment has been listed below:
- 4.3 litre V8 (482bhp & 343lbft)
