1 of circa 100 examples in RHD supplied to the UK with a manual gearboxJust 19,000 miles. Ferrari & specialist service history, most recent only 150 miles ago at Dick Lovett in SwindonCarbon-fibre race seats, cream leather headlining, Scuderia wing shields, and carbon-fibre driving zoneA classic combination of Rosso Corsa paintwork and Crema leather interiorConsidered a high-tide point for 'real' Ferraris and the last model to offer a fully manual open-gated gearboxTipped to be a future classic Manufactured 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 360's, 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, althoughoverseen 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 360's 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', thesteering wheel-mounted selector for stability systems, damping, shift speed, and throttle response. And there's 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 it's 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.The car presented here is a UK-supplied RHD 2005 Ferrari F430 coupe with the classic open-gated manual gearbox, which has long been associated with so many legendary models. It is 1 of circa 100 examples configured in RHD supplied to the UK and with such a gearbox, making it a scarce and hugely desirable commodity. Added to this, is the classic combination of Rossa Corsa paintwork with Crema leather interior, plus a very discerning specification, including carbon fibre race seats (large) with redstitching and embossed Ferrari crests, cream leather headlining, Scuderia wing shields, Becker radio-CD-Sat Nav unit, yellow rev counter, and carbon fibre driving zone. The car was bought by our vendor two years ago from Dick Lovett Ferrari to form part of a small collection and has been kept in his dehumidified garage and used sparingly only on dry days. It has now covered just 19,000 miles, and has an enviable Ferrari and marque specialist service history, having had its most recent service just 150 miles ago at Dick Lovett Ferrari of Swindon. Sadly, unforeseen circumstances mean our vendor must now part with a few of his cars and is keen that they go to like-minded enthusiasts.The F430 manual has been much hailed as a potential future classic, occupying a unique space where old world Ferrari V8s meets the new. A 430 manual really is a must-have model for any serious Ferrari enthusiast and this fabulous car has to be one of the finest examples currently available, plus it benefits fromthorough servicing, a great spec and a classic colour combination. A car not to be missed.
