What a great ass!

I've never seen a 430 with the carbon fiber rear. It looks great!

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ferra...902#vi-content

It's a shame they went overboard with the carbon fiber and did it on the engine...c'mon man ferrari red on the engine all the way!



This is the first I've come across. Is the carbon fiber rear pretty rare or is it just 07'+ years? (I've primarily look at 05 and 06).



Can this be done after market as well or is it too involved?

Nope. Can be done. Def not standard from factory. If you look closely the expansion tank belongs to a standard F430. The Scud has an additional carbon panel cover on it. The airbox covers also look aftermarket and not Scud spec.

The intake plenum can be purchased. Not cheap but possible.

Oh, I thought it was an option from the factory! Thanks for clarifying. I guess it is an aftermarket rear to make it look more like the scud?

Looking at the sticker pic on the dealers site it shows "Rear carbon fiber" as an option. You sure that's not from the factory?

Beleive the rear is factory, but not the carbon bits in the engine like the plenum.

The carbon fiber rear (challenge grill) is a factory option. It may not have been available on the 05s (not sure) but certainly on 06s forward. It is fairly cost prohibitive to add it later as it requires a different bumper cover. In 360s, the challenge grill is pretty easy to install after the fact; not so on the 430s.

I believe the "Rear Segment in Carbon" option is the rear bumper/CF grill you're talking about. It's a factory option with a different rear bumper and grill that some owners have changed on their regular 430 after the fact. I've been looking into this for my "regular" rear end, but with the factory parts, it's kind of pricey (much, much more than the option cost). I'm not sure but the "Boot Compartment in Carbon" (5 figure option) may be some of the engine compartment carbon. The photo in the Car Certificate (factory build photos) shows the red intake plenum so the carbon intake and airbox may (or may not) have been added after.
Different 430 sticks with different options make it harder to decide!

CF rear grill was a factory option. It costs a lot to retrofit one on a 430. IIRC from previous threads on this topic, around $10K.

I have also seen standard 430s with factory CF engine bays including plenums.

I've seen a few rear challenge CF grills on the 430, and it looks amazing.
But agreed, to do it from stock costs $$$$

meh. I don't mind the CF rear panel on 430s, but its not a that big of an improvement/change.

I can also take or leave the engine CF bits.

That said, I'm hunting an 09 scud which had that and more in CF. So, whatever, it comes with it....so fine. But I think this whole CF trim thing is WAY overplayed and certainly not worth the $$ that the options cost. I'm considering ordering a California, and have decided to skip virtually all of the CF bits inside and out (except the CF steering wheel with LEDS).

I agree that CF is sometimes overdone, but if it's for a purpose then yes.
E.g. In my Elise that I tracked, everything was CF...great weight savings.
For a Ferrari, the CF looks great and has purpose on a Scud.
In a California I agree CF has no real purpose other than aesthetics.

I also prefer the more fluid look of the stock bumper, although I guess the vented CF insert might vent engine heat better.

That appears to be a factory cf engine bay set, I purchased one last year. Air boxes look just like mine (3 contours across the top and no plastic collars at MAF end like scud) and probably have the horns although tough to see in picture. I don't have the decals on the left side drip panels, so either kit came with car or the owner peeled and re-stuck the engine info decals. My air boxes yellowed badly and had to be replaced under warranty.
