After its debut at the 2004 Paris Auto Show, the response and accolades for Ferrari’s F430 were plentiful, and this model is regarded by many to be the most user-friendly Ferrari ever produced. It has stunning looks and is considered to be the most exotic of the choices available in this class of car. The Spider version was launched at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2005, and it had to be special. Increased competition from Porsche, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, and Mercedes was putting pressure on a market place that had ever increasing choices.
Armed with many technological advances, the heart of this Ferrari is its 4.3-liter, 483-hp V-8 engine. This example has the desirable F1-inspired paddle-shifters and the steering wheel mounted rotary dial that changes settings to optimize performance. This head-turning Ferrari convertible is finished in blue with tan leather interior. The car has Daytona-style seats with piping accent and the Prancing Horse is embossed in the headrests; additionally there is a large red tach, carbon fiber accents on the dash and console, Scuderia Ferrari shields, chromed alloy wheel upgrade, Sony CD player, ventilated four-wheel disc brakes with red Ferrari calipers, air conditioning; power windows, top and mirrors. With a body designed by Pininfarina, the F430 Spider is a pure statement of speed with style. 2007 Ferrari F430 F1 Spider
