Ferrari’s F430 Spider is perhaps the company’s ultimate useable convertible. It offers just as much excitement and agility as the Berlinetta, but with the added bonus of being exposed to the howl of its 483bhp mid-mounted 4.3-litre V8.
The performance is simply breaktaking, with acceleration from zero to 60 mph in less than four seconds and a maximum speed in excess of 195 mph. Ferrari’s F1 gearbox, as fitted to this example, was upgraded in the F430 with cutting-edge software to allow gear changes taking just 150 milliseconds per shift.
Contemporary road tests by the motoring media remarked that the drop-top lost nothing to the closed car in terms of performance, so it is arguably the more desirable model. The F430 came with adjustable suspension as standard, which - along with the electronic differential and transmission settings - is controlled by the steering wheel-mounted Manettino switch.
This F430 Spider is presented in lustrous black (Nero) paintwork with the superbly comfortable and supportive electrically-operated seats in full black leather. The exterior is highlighted by the bright red plenum chambers visible through the glass rear deck, 19-inch alloy wheels and the optional Giallo painted brake calipers.
The F430’s first owner specified the optional Scuderia Ferrari wing shields, Giallo rev counter, carbonfibre dashboard trim and centre console, as well as the carbonfibre lower zone in front of the handbrake.
One of the highlights of this particular Ferrari is the incredible Capristo exhaust. It enhances the engine noise wonderfully and must be heard in person to be truly appreciated. A 30-pin iPod connector plus front and rear parking sensors round off the list of extra equipment on this beautiful Spider.
Inside the F430''s luxurious cabin you’ll find climate control, electric windows and door mirrors, push-button start and satellite navigation. The original factory tool kit and tyre inflator, not to mention the complete and original book pouch, remain with this beautiful Ferrari.
This particular F430 Spider has magnificent service history, with a stamp for every year recorded in its original service booklet. The last 4 services have been carried out by Foskers. This fantastic Ferrari has clearly been very well looked after by all of its previous owners, who have driven it sparingly, accumulating just 15,600 miles from new.
