The Ferrari F430 (Type F131) is a sports car produced by the Italian automobile manufacturer Ferrari from 2004 to 2009 as a successor to the Ferrari 360. The car is an update to the 360 with notable exterior and performance changes. It was unveiled at the 2004 Paris Motor Show. The F430 was succeeded by the 458 which was unveiled on 28 July 2009.
The F430 features a 4,308 cc (4.3 L) V8 engine of the “Ferrari-Maserati” F136 family. This new power plant was a significant change for Ferrari, as all previous Ferrari V8’s were descendants of the Dino racing program of the 1950s. This fifty-year development cycle came to an end with the entirely new engine used in the F430, the architecture of which replaced the Dino-derived V12 in most other Ferrari cars. The engine’s output specifications are: 490 PS (360 kW; 483 hp), at 8,500 rpm and 465 N⋅m (343 lb⋅ft) of torque at 5,250 rpm, 80% of which is available below 3,500 rpm. Despite a 20% increase in displacement, engine weight grew by only 4 kg (8.8 lb) along with a decrease in diameter for easier packaging. The connecting rods, pistons and crankshaft were all entirely new, while the 4-valve cylinder head, valves and intake trumpets were directly retained from Formula 1 engines, for ideal volumetric efficiency. The F430 has a top speed in excess of 315 km/h and can accelerate from 0 to 97 km/h in 3.6 seconds, 0.6 seconds.
This particular F430 was delivered to its first Dutch owner through official Ferrari dealer, Munsterhuis Sportscars B.V. in Januari 2006 in the Netherlands. It presents beautifully in its eye-catching Grigio Silverstone 740 colour over a Cuoio leather interior. Naturally, it has always been expertly cared for by Ferrari main dealers, It is thus offered for sale and ready to be enjoyed to the full by its next owner.
