Two-Owner California Car with 10,500 Miles from New. Daytona Seats and Shields.
2006 Ferrari F430 Spider
Rosso Corsa with Tan Leather Interior
Introduced in 2004 at the Paris Motor Show, the Ferrari F430 coupe was heralded as one of the most advanced Ferrari road cars in the history of the company. The newly derived V8 engine was compact, reliable, and capable of delivering nearly 500hp, all of which was attributed to performance derived from Formula 1 development. The Pininfarina design, led by Frank Stephenson, enhanced downforce through the use of advanced aerodynamic testing. Visually the new design displayed very unique tail light treatment and twin front ovoid air intakes, reminiscent of the vintage Ferrari shark noses of racing past. Mechanical innovations included a limited slip active differential (E-Diff), Manettino steering wheel controls, and Skyhook electronic suspension.
In 2004 the Spider F430 was unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. Once again using Formula 1 simulation programs, the convertible body design was developed to allow high speed open-air driving and smooth cockpit air management through the use of a two-stage folding roof and rear buffeting methods. The soft top is easily concealed into the rear bodywork with electronic raising and lowering at the touch of a button.
This particular F430 Spider has covered only 11,000 miles since acquired new but the owner of Rockstar Inc, the energy drink. Finished in the stunning color combination of Rosso Corsa over Tan Leather interior, the beautiful paint contrasts the interior perfectly, with sporting elegance and performance accents. The car has been with just two California owners, both of whom have exercised restraint over the past twelve years, limiting the miles while properly maintaining and detailing it regularly. A recent Carfax shows no accidents or damage, regular service, and passing results for California emission tests.
Cosmetically, this Spider F430 is in very fine condition as evidenced by the low miles it has covered since new. The paint finish is quite nice throughout, showing excellent gloss and no significant cosmetic flaws, save for a small touch up on the left front bumper cover. The dramatic sloping windshield and beautiful paint create a handsome contrast to the undulating shape of the car. The glass, lighting, and lenses are in excellent condition with no notable chips or marks evident. The emblems and script are nearly flawless as well. All panels display excellent fit throughout the car displaying excellent inner surfaces and door jambs. The wheels are in excellent condition with the exception of the right front rim, which has some scuff marks on the perimeter with the tire sidewalls showing evidence of curb rubbing. The top appears in very good condition with tight fit, crisp borders, edges and seams.
The interior of the car is in especially nice condition. The leather is supple and smooth with excellent surfacing and no marks of note. The dashboard, instruments and switches are all in near new condition, as one might expect from a documented low mile car. The steering wheel, dash pad, and instrument cluster are free of notable wear. The driver’s seat has virtually no marks or bolster wear while all other leather surfaces including the center console, door panels, visors, and A-pillars are all in excellent to near new condition. Carpeting is in very good condition as is the inner liner for the convertible top. In all, the interior is handsome and fresh with excellent fit and finish befitting a car of this stature. The trunk area remains essentially new and consistent with the rest of the interior, essentially factory original. Clearly the previous owners have maintained this car with proper care and enthusiastic consideration, protecting the quality and excellence with thoughtfully minimal use.
Under the hood, the innovative V8 has been properly maintained with excellent castings, factory housings and original accessory equipment as delivered. All Ferrari number plates, factory installation stickers, and verification markings are in place and in excellent condition. The original engine and engine compartment are clean and correct. The underside of the car shows signs of use but, owing to the years it has spent in mild California since new, has no evidence of structural compromise.
The car drives and shifts beautifully with no hesitation in power. Road manners are exactly as described when new, capable but when prompted, rewardingly quick. Cornering and braking are as one might expect from a car developed utilizing Formula 1 technology. A complete Ferrari tool set, all manuals (with leather cover), the Vehicle Identification Passport, and all other factory ownership accessories accompany the car.
The service book indicates regular services at 1,476, 2,478, 3,041 (twice), 3,486, and most recently at 4,043 miles in June of 2015.
This is a very nicely cared for F430 Spider, presented with beautifully maintained finishes, ready to drive and enjoy. Known history and low miles further validate the care given to this handsome and capable car. The supple leather interior and contrasting exterior make this Ferrari a compelling and dynamic combination of grace and power ready to please the next enthusiast.
