Beautifully engineered with a 4.3 litre V8 engine, the Ferrari F430 spider debuted in 2005 at the Geneva Motor Show and immediately marked itself as a show stopper, with looks and plenty of power to match.
The midmounted engine under a glass bonnet and that amazing quad exhaust is music to your ears, like the three tenors singing ‘O Solo Mio’.
Producing top speeds of up to 193mph (3mph less than the hardtop) and a 0-60 mph time in 4.1 seconds, it is easy to understand why the F430 Spider is undoubtedly in a league of it’s own in the world of convertible supercars.
Despite adopting an enhanced new engine as part of the Ferrari-Maserati collaboration, Pininfarina stayed loyal to the Ferrari heritage and included many features seen in previous Ferrari’s in the overall styling and design of this car.
This stunning low mileage example is tastefully modified with a TUBI exhaust – giving it a valiant roar that leaves fellow drivers, passengers and passersby smiling and wanting more!
Meticulously maintained by it’s current owner the car is a true Garage Queen and has won 2 awards for “Best in show”, as well as “Favorite Import’ raising money for Cancer charities in the process.
If you are in the market for a low mileage unabused Ferrari with award winning looks, then look no further as this has to be one of the best examples in the country.
WALK AROUND VIDEO
This unique Ferrari 430 Spider has been captured in the video below and truly shows the car in all its glory.
Number 158003 from the Ferrari factory line this incredible F430 spider from 2007 has only covered 7631 miles (yes, you read that correctly).
This exceptionally low mileage example has benefited from a recent service just 400 miles ago with Oil, transmission, radiator and brake fluids all changed in the last 8 months.
The current owner has advised that the car has new motor mounts, 91% remaining on the clutch and that all services are up to date. In addition two sets of keys are present, along with the original manuals and tool kit.
The owner had also carried out a PPI when he purchased the car and would be happy to share this with serious buyers. We can also confirm this Ferrari was not subject to any recalls by Ferrari and for any concerned parties who wish to conduct their own checks, this information would be captured by conducting a Car Fax check.
BODYWORK & INTERIOR
As the old saying goes, a picture speaks a thousand words, in this case it really does.
The paintwork on this car is unmarked and has no scratches, no chips in the windshield and remains in all original condition.
The current owner has also gone the extra mile to protect this stunning car by having the front, sides and hood wrapped in PPF (Paint Protection Film) to avoid any horrible stone chips.
Unaware to some people the interior of the F430 Spider is identical to the coupe version, but make no mistake the interior in this example is very special.
Present on the inside is the factory fitted fire extinguisher and plenty of carbon fibre extras, including carbon fibre paddle shifters, carbon fibre centre console, carbon fibre door plate sills, carbon fibre on the steering wheel, a carbon fibre rear challenge grill for added engine bay cooling (which we believe is a $5000 optional extra) and normally found in a Scuderia model.
The black leather seats coupled with yellow stitching are virtually unmarked and show very little sign of use continuing with the black and yellow theme across the car.
On the exterior of the car this particular example has subtle nice touches including the Scuderia metal shields on the side of the car.
The roof panel is fully functional and automatically folds away perfectly, which can be seen in the video and as mentioned the car has a TUBI exhaust that can be heard in the video also.
The windows on this car do suffer from the common issue of not fully closing, however this is only an issue if you have the roof up and if the new seller wishes to this is a fixable problem that can be done by yourself or a trusted mechanic.
Underneath the glass bonnet the engine bay is exactly what you would expect from a Ferrari of this calibre and is as clean as the outside, further displaying how well looked after this car is.
The owner has also fitted problem free fab speed headers with blankets to keep the engine bay cool and not suffer from any cracks, he also has the original factory headers and will provide them to the new owner.
Wrapped in brand new P-zero Michelin tyres with Scuderia rims, all 4 wheels are finished in a satin/matte black colour, however one wheel has a small rock chip, but none of the wheels have any curb rash and sit nicely with the big bold yellow brake callipers that stand out against the unmarked black paint work following suit of the ‘black and yellow’ theme across the car.
In our opinion this is by far one of the best F430 Spiders for sale at the moment and the new owner will be very lucky to own this special car. It will be difficult to find another one with this spec, mileage and tasteful modifications making it a real catch and fine example to add to anyones car collection.
