2008 Ferrari F430GT GT2 Specification
s/n F131EVOGTC*2610*
White with Black interior

While Ferrari’s 430 Challenge is essentially a lightened and tuned street variant of the car, the 430 GT2 is quite a different animal from the Challenge. The GT2 is a comprehensively prepared race car that competes in the world’s most prestigious events, including the FIA GT Championship, Le Mans, and American Le Mans Series. It is Ferrari’s top of the line 430-based race car, being lighter, more fully developed, and faster than the Challenge and the GT3. Consequently, it is also the most expensive, and the 2008 variant of the car is a further refined version of the 2007 car. The car does not need to be updated in order to run in the European Le Mans Series, Open GT, Italian GT or Spanish GT (with the last 3 series actually run the Ferraris in 2008 specifications). So where you could run in the European LMS in 08 spec, you might not be as competitive, but you would be competitive in the other 3 series. If the car is being used in the SCCA or NASA events, more amateur events, the car could be tuned so that running the car will not make it much more expensive than running a Challenge car.

Like all genuine 430 GT2’s, this is a Michelotto-built car. This is a one-owner car that was invoiced by Michelotto to its original owner on the 16th of January 2008. In addition to the 435,000 euros for the car itself, this car has over 30,000 euros of options, including data acquisition system sensors, water and oil quick refilling system, air conditioning system, endurance racing refueling lights, carbon clutch, and supplemental brake cooling system. The car was campaigned in the 2008 American Le Mans Series by Tafel Racing, during which time it finished 4th at the 12 Hours of Sebring. The car has never been seriously damaged, and is fully eligible in its current configuration for professional racing in both the United States and Europe. The car can also be easily configured to run in Japan. The car ran the majority of the races in the 2008 ALMS season, and following the 2008 season, the car was gone through by Dennis Chizma, Ferrari specialist and lead mechanic for Peterson White Lighting.

Chizma’s inspection revealed that the car was in very good condition throughout. The major components were disassembled, checked and inspected (many parts by X-ray), and new brakes fitted. The fluids were changed, and the clutch was found to have 2 to 3 hours on it. The gearbox and bearings were found to be in good shape, and there was no evidence of accident damage noted. The engine works properly, but has not been rebuilt. The car was successfully tested in November of 2009 at Sears Point. The car was also repainted in its factory white without livery.

The car is currently in very nice condition, having seen almost no use since being freshened. The paint is in fine condition and the car displays excellent race cosmetics throughout. The headlamps are in excellent condition, as are the wheels. The windscreen does show some road rash, but no significant damage. The wheels are excellent, as is the interior.

Infinitely more capable and collectable than 430 Challenge cars, the F430 GT2 is the ultimate F430 race car. This particular car was a capably and professionally run example, and is well-equipped and properly sorted at this time. It represents the ideal weapon for the Ferrari enthusiast looking to go racing professionally, or to add to his collection of historically significant racecars.
