This Ferrari F430 Spider 16 M was sold new on 28 September 2009 by Charles Pozzi in Levallois to a collector from the Paris area. As well as being a rare and exclusive model, finished in the unusual shade of "Giallo Modena", it was equipped with several options, including yellow brake callipers, a navigation system with Bluetooth, a special colour for the stitching, dashboard and steering wheel (both in Alcantara), a tyre pressure monitoring system, a spare wheel kit, carbon fibre-look side sills, a trolley bag and luggage bag for the boot, as well as other special equipment. These options are listed in the purchase invoice. The owner then used the car sparingly, but had it maintained regularly, as the bills from Pozzi on file confirm.

On 27 February 2018, it changed hands, with only 19,882 km recorded. The invoice from Ferrari Gauduel, at Ecully near Lyon, also mentions a two-year guarantee, which therefore runs until 26 February 2020. Since its purchase, the car has been little used, as its owner wished to preserve this true collector's item; at just 21,857 km it is in near-new condition.
This model is especially exclusive. After winning its sixteenth World Constructors' Championship in 2008, Ferrari wanted to celebrate the event in proper style and launched this special version of the F430 Scuderia Spider. The Scuderia was already an extremely fast car, but Ferrari succeeded in doing better still. The weight of the car was reduced by 80 kg (176 lb) and the 32-valve V8, mated to a seven-speed F1-type robotized gearbox, had continuously variable valve timing. Its maximum power of 510 bhp at 8500 rpm allowed the car to accelerate from 0-100 kph (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 315 kph (196 mph). The interior was specially equipped with sports seats offering excellent support, a rev counter reading up to 10,000 rpm and a 360 kph (224 mph) speedometer. Only 499 examples of this formidable machine were built, making it an extremely rare model.

In addition to this model's extremely exclusive character, the car presented here is in superb overall condition. Naturally, it comes with its user's manuals and original service book; it asks only to take to the road once again, in the hands of an enthusiast who will appreciate its exceptional performance, while enjoying the opportunity to drive with the hood down.
