The Ferrari F430 was the answer to the question of “can we bring a shred of practicality to the supercar ownership experience?” The F430 can be civilized enough to play the role of daily driver, but let it off its leash, there are few cars out that demand more raw devotion to driver involvement. The F430 is amazingly civilized, consider the interior fitted with leather and carbon fiber, the ride quality that is counterintuitively supple and the downright practical nine-cubic-foot trunk. The car can turn in an instance to a fire breathing animal with the mere push on the right pedal. Finished in Tour De France (TDF) Blue over two tone blue and tan leather this 2006 Ferrari F430 F1 is a refreshing break from the typical Rosso-Corsa over tan combination we are so used to seeing. The lines of the car wear the colors well and give it a sophisticated look. Having only traveled 15,000 miles since new this three owner car has been well maintained and it shows. The paint shines with a deep luster and few blemishes, minor stone chips on the front bumper being the only marks. The interior shows well throughout with only minor wear and minor Sticky Dash on a few of the buttons. The blue and tan Daytona seats are in near new condition as is the factory carbon fiber trim. Mechanically the car is amazing. The addition of a “Tubi” exhaust and the HRE wheels make this car stand out visually, while making an amazing shriek as it reaches redline. The original Ferrari exhaust comes with the car. We do not have the original wheels. The clutch has just been measured for wear and there is 68% life remaining. The convertible top is in nice shape, thought there is a small rub mark on the drivers side. The rub mark goes through the first layer of material, but not through the second. The top mechanism works as it should. The F430 was the first model produced by Ferrari to feature a chain driven camshafts rather than a rubber belt, thereby eliminating the need for the dreaded “engine-out” service. No more $10,000 + routine services with this car. This F430 will be delivered with a fresh oil change and brake fluid flush per yearly recommended service; the new owner can enjoy it worry free and up to date on all maintenance.
