The F430 was at least 70% new compared with the 360, with anew engine, a new F1 gearbox, a new diff and a brand-new chassisThe F430s complex variable-valve-timing system is also lifted straight from the Enzos V12and as ever there is dry-sump lubricationIts 4.3-litre V8 will rocket this very sleek Ferrari from 0-62 mph in just 3.7 seconds and on to a maximum speed in excess of 196 mphRight-hand drive, UK-supplied/registered car with just 630 miles from new, deliverednew via HR OwenLondon; the original owner had HR Owenstore it until 2012 when it was first registered; 'FE12 TOY' will come with the carUp-to-datemain dealer service history (sixstamps in total), last done at 592 miles on 21st January2019 at HR Owen;Ferrari 'Power' warranty until 5th May 2020Manufactured from 2004 until 2009, the Ferrari F430 was the successor to the very successful 360M and, according to its creators, was at least 70% new compared with the previous model, itself a ground-breaker. Its aluminium structure was more rigid than the 360s, it had a new engine, a new F1 gearbox, a new differential, and a brand-new chassis, and although the styling is obviously reminiscent of the 360M's, in reality, it's pretty much a ground-up design. Largely the work of Pininfarina, although overseen by Ferrari's design chief Frank Stephenson, the F430 still looks fresh today, more crisp-edged than the 360, with a strong hint of Enzo around the surface-erupting tail-lights.Its all-new 4.3-litre V8 engine, with four valves per cylinder instead of the 360s five, and chain camshaft drive instead of belts, with a consequent great reduction in service costs, has a variable-valve-timing system lifted straight from the Enzo's V12, dry-sump lubrication, a very high compression ratio (11.3:1), a variable airflow plenum chamber, and an enormous electronic brain making the decisions in the form of not one, but two, Bosch Motronic ME7 ECUs. At 483bhp it boasts 21% more power than the 360, exceeding even that of the mighty (and turbocharged) F40, whilst the torque spread is extraordinary for an engine keen to howl beyond 8500rpm. All these factors contribute to a 0-62mph time of just 3.7 seconds and a maximum speed in excess of 196mph.The advancements continued with the Manettino, the steering wheel-mounted selector for stability systems, damping, shift speed, and throttle response. And theres the E-diff, whose calibrations this alters, a clever, clutch-controlled active differential that sorts out waywardness, not by inhibiting one rear wheel, but by pouring more torque into the other. Ferrari reckons its worth 3 seconds a lap at the Fiorano test track, and it certainly helps make the F430 a far more forgiving machine than the 360, and a car of supremely subtle and keen responses.Unveiled at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show, the F430 Spideris the convertible version based on the coup and is Ferrari's 21st road-going convertible. The car was designed by Pininfarinawith the aid of aerodynamic simulation programs used by their Formula 1 team. The conversion from a closed top to an open-air convertible is a two-stage folding-action with the roof panel automatically folding away inside a space above the engine bay, the whole process only taking a few seconds and undoubtedly a masterpiece of micro-engineering. The interior and performance of the Spider are identical to that of the Coup.The car presented here is a UK-supplied, right-hand drive, 2009 Ferrari F430 F1 Spider and has, quite remarkably, covered just 630 miles in total. Supplied new via HR Owen London, and due somewhat intriguingly to his circumstances, the original owner had the dealership professionally store the car until 2012, when it was first registered. Since 2009, this special car has a main dealer service history (six stamps in total), with the last service carried out at 592 miles on 21st January 2019 at HR Owen and it comes with a Ferrari Power warranty until May 2020. Having benefited from full PPF and having covered so few miles, our vendor describes the bodywork as being like new. This condition is only matched by the striking colour combination of Bianco Avus paintwork and Rosso leather interior and impressive specification (full details available at our documents desk) which includes an enormous amount of lightweight and expensive carbon-fibre.This must be one of the lowest mileages ever seen on an F430, and certainly fits the criteria for best-of-breed. Cars of this quality and with such low mileage rarely come to market and this beautiful F430 F1 Spider represents an excellent opportunity.
