LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 2007 Ferrari F430 Spider
In the grand tradition of mid-engined Ferrari V-8 sports cars, from the 308, 348, 355, 360 and beyond, the F430’s introduction marked a watershed moment in Ferrari history; once again, the company bested its already superlative engineering and, at the Geneva Auto Salon of 2005, bested it once more with the introduction of the spider. Not only did the car benefit from the state-of-the-art aerodynamic simulation techniques used on Ferrari’s F1 program, but the engine was new, compact, and lightweight, developing close to 500 horsepower with a 0–60 time of only 4.1 seconds. The electronic differential (E-Diff) was first developed by the Grand Prix team, and the now familiar steering wheel–mounted rotary switch, the manettino as the F1 drivers called it, allowed the car’s setup to be changed quickly and easily. Indeed, this truly was a Ferrari for the 21st century, with the attention to detail and engineering perfectionism the clientele has come to expect.
Originally sold new at Ferrari of Houston, Texas, this F430 Spider is optioned with the iconic and rare aluminum gated 6-speed manual transmission transfers the power from the high-revving, longitudinally mounted 4.3L/490 HP mid-engine V-8, which is visible through the clear window in the rear engine deck. Painted in the classic and beautiful Rosso Corsa with Tan leather interior outfitted with the classic Daytona seats. Additional exterior and performance features include optional Brembo carbon-ceramic disc brakes with red calipers on all four corners, factory Scuderia Ferrari shields on the front fenders, Xenon headlights, a power-operated convertible top and factory 19-inch alloy wheels with Michelin tires controlled by the delicate and intuitive hydraulic power rack-and-pinion steering. Inclusive in the sale are the owners manuals, tire inflator, tools and service receipts.
Ownership of a Ferrari is much more than the sum of its components. The sound of the F430’s engine changes with intensity with the vigor of the driving style. Cruise through tree-lined roads and the tone is distinctively Ferrari, but open up the throttle and the two-stage muffler chamber opens up to the symphonic sound that only comes from Maranello.
