If it has a prancing horse on the front, then it's a purebred exotic sports car born out of winning on the rack. But race-ready cars never looked so good. This extremely clean 2006 Ferrari F430 Spider F1 takes all the competition lessons from international victories, and cloaks it in a bold and coordinated package that makes everyone take notice. That's why it has been treated with the meticulous care that this thoroughbred deserves – it even has just 40 miles on it since a major servicing.
The Maranello-applied Corsa Red paint looks fantastic, but you already expected that. A car like this doesn't sit outside. Instead it gets the prime space in the garage where lesser cars get kicked out if they have to be parked anywhere close to it. And the few times when this exotic does get to hit the town (there's only 26,131 miles on the odometer) responsible ownership means there's no scuffs on the chin spoiler and no curb rash on the factory alloys. The design masters at Pininfarina know how to make rolling sculpture, so we know you fell in love/lust at first sight with the bodywork. But more than just beautiful, they work closely with Ferrari on the most advanced aerodynamics, so the design not only looks like it cheats the wind, but in reality, it also really does!
Ferrari is as much about style as they are about speed, and you are reminded of this the moment you see the power folding top. The flying buttress design is retained as the roof automatically folds itself behind a red tonneau cover to create a seamless roadster-like profile with the top down. And when you look inside, this is a fantastically coordinated package of tan and black. The supple leather seats have been finished in the classic Daytona style, and this combined with the well-coordinated black piping was a $3,000+ option alone. Plus, these buckets with the prancing horse embossed on the headrests will hold you in place like no other when the road gets twisty. You can even power adjust them for the ultimate in comfort. This is a top-dollar vehicle, so it should be no surprise that it comes loaded with great features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry, cruise control, AM/FM/CD stereo, heated exterior mirrors, and dual airbags. Plus, the automatic climate control means you get to stay as cool as you look even with the top down in the summer season. And while all of that is good for keeping you and your passenger comfortable, what you'll really love the most is grabbling the Italian leather steering wheel and utilizing the paddle shifters to make that large central tach dance.
Driving a Ferrari is an experience like no other, and that's why they are forever the ultimate perfromance cars. The original 4.3-liter DOHC V8 is such a work of art that it gets its own glasshouse behind the driver so everyone can view it. Push the start button, and it comes to life with a frantic and muscular tone that seems to shout, “What are we standing still for?!” This 483 horsepower engine loves to sing its way up to the 8,500 RPM redline like the F1 cars that it's based from. In fact, the “F1” in this car's name refers to the optional six-speed transmission. The race-style paddle shifting gives this car lighting quick shifts, so you truly feel like you're in a competition machine. And all the other details on the F430 have been worked out to maximize performance. There's a smooth undercarriage for airflow; a race-inspired selectable fully independent suspension that sticks to the pavement like glue; and four-wheel disc brakes with large drilled and slotted rotors with bold red calipers. But you already knew a true Ferrari was engineered to be a terrific performance machine. What makes this convertible extra special is that it can also settle into a quieter everyday functionality when needed. That's thanks to features like the power steering, anti-lock brakes, and the auto mode of the transmission.
Just as important as the condition of a Ferrari are the records. This comes complete with the owner's manual packet, service manual, and original window sticker (that shows just how much you save for this lightly used example.) Plus, there are even maintenance records that prove there was a comprehensive service performed in 2018 and less than 40 miles traveled since. So, there's nothing stopping you from taking this prancing horse home, except if someone else gets here first. Call today!!!
