A manual UK RHD F430 Spider. 13,100 miles. Full dealer service history.
Details Specification

Manufactured from 2004 until 2009, the Ferrari F430 was the successor to the enormously successful 360M. According to its creators, the F430 was at least 70 % new compared with the 360. It had a new engine, a new F1 gearbox, a new diff and a brand-new chassis, and although the styling is obviously reminiscent of the 360M’s, in reality, it’s pretty much a ground-up design. Only the bonnet, doors, and roof were carried over; the rest, even the door mirrors, were all new and largely the work of Pininfarina, overseen by Ferrari’s design chief Frank Stephenson.  The F430’s complex variable-valve-timing system is also lifted straight from the Enzo’s V12, and as ever there is dry-sump lubrication, a very high compression ratio (11.3:1), a variable airflow plenum chamber. and an enormous electronic brain making the decisions in the form of not one, but two, Bosch Motronic ME7 ECUs. At 483bhp it has a significant 21 % more power than the 360. Its fabulous 4.3-litre V8 will rocket this very sleek new Ferrari from 0-62mph in just 3.7 seconds and on to a maximum speed in excess of 196mph.  Having been designed initially with a later convertible in mind, the arrival of the Spider in 2005 was no surprise. Weighing only a few pounds more than the Berlinetta and having been designed with the aid of the company's F1 aerodynamicists, the Spider is just as slippery and its top speed is only a few miles an hour less. The ingenious electric soft-top mechanism works really quickly and makes its predecessor seem almost ponderous by comparison. A soft top was chosen as opposed to a Mercedes-style folding steel panel as Ferrari wanted its glorious red-top engine to remain in view.  Offered here is a UK, right-hand drive F430 Spider that’s fitted with the rare and desirable manual gearbox. Presented in the striking combination of Grigio Alloy (Light Blue/Silver) with Crema hide, this car has covered 13,100 miles since leaving Maranello in 2008. It has a full service history having been looked after by Graypaul with the most recent service on 26/07/2016 and the history file contains a comprehensive list of the Ferrari's maintenance from new. Factory fitted options include ceramic brakes with red calipers, coloured dashboard, electric seats and the Navtrak anti-theft system. Not only that, but this car comes with its full Ferrari tool kit, tyre pressure and puncture kit, Ferrari car cover, seat covers, wired-in battery conditioner and still has one year left on its Ferrari power warranty.  This low-mileage 430 Spider has clearly been well cared for and being well optioned, particularly with the manual gearbox, is a very desirable car.
