Sold for: £131,630
In 2008, Ferrari put into production their new lightweight 430, evocatively named the Scuderia. Replacing the 360 Challenge Stradale was always going to be a tough proposition, but with 510BHP, a new lightning fast gear change, and an exhaust note which sounded pure F1, the Scuderia managed to be quicker, yet a lot less demanding to drive than the CS. This left-hand drive example was originally supplied new to Germany in 2009, where it had one owner and covered just 26,000 kilometers (16,000 miles) before being imported into the UK early in 2015. It was then acquired by Silverstone Auctions MD, Nick Whale, for his personal collection and use. During his ownership, he has covered just over 2,300 very enjoyable Kms (so the total today is 28,338 Kms or 17,600 miles) and he reports that the car is an outstanding version of the model that drives exceptionally well. Just prior to the auction the car will be serviced and given a fresh MoT by renowned Ferrari Specialists, Terry Keys, who are based at Silverstone Circuit and are happy to offer an independent assessment of the car. Finished in Rosso Corsa with a factory fitted stripe and black/carbon trim, the car was initially specified with a large number of options including; Scuderia Ferrari Shields, Carbon Fibre Driving Zone, 4 Point Safety Harnesses, Brake calipers in Rosso Corsa, Tyre Pressure Monitoring, Carbon-Ceramic Brake System, LED Gear change display, Hi-Fi Pack, and a factory roll bar. It also benefits from being fitted with 'Armourfend' clear paint protection system to the front end and all leading edges, including the headlights. It has been meticulously maintained by Ferrari main dealers all of its life.
