Please note: we have brought the car to the Padova Auto e Moto D'Epoca fair, and will be visibile from October 20th to October 23rd; please get in touch with us if you want to know more.
Italian since first registration, this Ferrari F430 has been delivered to its first owner in January 2006 by renowned Rome dealer SA.MO.CAR, specced in Nürburgring Silver on the exterior (matched to red brake calipers) and extended Blu Scuro leather interior (i.e. also the dashboard is covered in leather), together with carbon fiber trims and a yellow instrument panel.
The F430, unveiled at the 2004 Paris Motor Show, is one of the first cars in Ferrari's new era that started in the early 2000s: its V8 engine is the first application on a Ferrari model of the famed F136 family, jointly developed with Maserati, which went on to win 8 awards in the International Engine of the Year competition in its various forms. Being the first V8 Ferrari to feature an engine that was not a derivative of the Dino engines, the F430 also features cutting-edge technology for the time such as an electronically-controlled differential and the now-famous "Manettino" on the steering wheel, inspired by the Formula 1 controls of the time, that allows the driver to quickly change the setup of the car.
The car, presented in mint condition, is sold in its full original equipment, and also has a full service book duly updated and maintained.
The car has undergone a full service in May 2022, performed by a workshop specialized on Ferraris; both front and rear brakes are new, engine oil and oil filter have been changed, the automated manual gearbox has been inspected and has undergone an oil change and has been fitted a new valve.
After the service, the car has undergone a full diagnostic test by the manufacturer, which the car passed with no advisories. The clutch is in perfect condition, and so are the exhausts. The car has passed the Italian mandatory inspection and will not require a new one until May 2023.
