Finished in the iconic Rosso Corsa, this Ferrari GT3 car looks incredible with elegant lines from the road car enhanced by significant aerodynamic improvements built purely for track performance. With weight saving and downforce top of the agenda everything has been optimised to ensure maximum capability for sprint and long distance racing. The conversion includes replacing the bonnet, bumpers and side skirts with lightweight carbon / kevlar composite while a huge carbon fibre rear wing is complimented by carbon fibre canards and significant front splitter. Further upgrades include huge apertures in the bonnet assisted by a large cooling fan to ensure hot air is dispelled effectively.
Having been on track for a couple rounds of Brit GT & GT Cup, the condition of the car is excellent; showing no clear signs of damage with even panel gaps and only a hand full of touch up marks dotted around the car.
Kessel’s full 2009 Scuderia body panel upgrade kit is also included with a spares package.
Opening the door of the 430 GT3 unveils a space worlds apart from the standard road car; all race car focus with zero sound proofing and lexan windows to manage weight. Essential safety equipment includes OMP kill switches, 5-point harnesses and a full fire suppression system. A single deep bolstered embroidered bucket seat presents in excellent condition with no wear marks on the side bolsters and clean fabric throughout. The Kessel build plaque sits atop the dash confirming this homologation special.
The alcantara clad wheel features a set of aluminium F1-style paddles nestled behind which feel much more robust than the standard car providing full confidence at maximum attack.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Longitudinally mounted behind the cabin this 4.3L Naturally aspirated V8 is the beating heart of this monster. Following extensive tuning by Kessel, with racing manifolds and a ECU tune, this GT3 unit develops 550 bhp up by almost 70bhp on the Challenge car and 100hp more than the GTC variant. The lightning fast F1 electro-hydraulic gearbox was rebuilt shortly after the cars last race in 2013.
A new engine was supplied by F.F. Corse which shows 3 hours of running; further to this a recent visit from a Kessel technician inspected the ECU to ensure everything was running smoothly.
There are 3 exhaust variants for different decibel regs, with a spare Gearbox and radiators also available.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Presenting in great condition, the more traditional gold BBS racing wheels complete the look for this menacing race car. With a wider and slight bigger wheel size than a standard F430 it allows for a large profile full slick tyre for superior track performance. This example is fitted with a matching set of Pirelli full slicks.
Brakes are also uprated with large Brembo callipers and steel discs providing immense stopping power. Racing suspension provides a significant weight saving as well as infinite adjustment from track to track.
A further 4 sets of wheels are included as part of a spares package.
1 of 54 GT3 cars built by Kessel under license from Ferrari, this 2007 Ferrari GT3 was supplied by F.F. Corse to Fox Motorsport where it was used for track and occasional test days before being successfully campaigned in the 2011 GT Trophy at Snetterton. Paul McNeilly & Jamie Stanley would finish runner up to a 458, and record a historic 1st & 2nd overall for the FF Corse team, before the same pair would then go on to clinch class honours at the Silverstone round of British GT in 2013. Images and race reports of the car in period are included in the history file.
Shortly after the Silverstone round, the gearbox was rebuilt and the engine replaced by FF Corse and once racing was over, the car was sold on to its current owner in 2014 where it has been used sparingly as a track day car.
Eligible for a multitude of current and historic racing series, or as a track day weapon, this GT3 represents excellent value and a keen entry point into Ferrari competition.
A comprehensive Spares package includes the upgraded Scuderia body kit, 12+ Wheels, Gearbox, 4 Corners, Radiators, All sensors and 3 different Exhaust variants.
