    Well, I hate to do it, but the need to free up some cash for an upcoming business deal forces my hand.

    The car is an ’07 with 17,533 miles. Manual gearbox. Silverstone Gray with black interior. Carbon ceramic rotors. Full maintenance records from new and is fully up to date on service (serviced by David Feinberg / Ferrari Service of Bedford during my ownership) . New genuine factory clutch and Hill Engineering throw out bearing (former owner was heavy on the clutch…not me!). Lowered on factory springs. Fabspeed headers and X pipe muffler. BBS F1 wheels (8.75 x 19 and 11.25 x 19) with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires (245-35-19 and 295-30-19) with about 4000 miles on them.

    Car is modified with original Scuderia front and rear bumpers, rear decklid, and rockers. Car also has a full original Scuderia interior. Black alcantara and tech fabric, carbon fiber door panels and seats. One thing I’d like to make clear about this project: I did it strictly because I prefer the more aggressive, angular lines of a Scuderia compared to the softer, more rounded lines of the standard F430. And I most certainly did not put a Scuderia badge on it!!! The body panels are from one Scuderia, and the interior is from a different one. The point being that, especially for the interior, all these pieces were from the same car and not mixed and matched, so all materials match in color. And before this turns into a discussion on why didn’t I just buy a Scuderia …if they offered one with a manual gearbox, I would’ve! No disrespect to the F1 system, it’s just not for me. And yes, I did drive a Scuderia prior to purchasing my F430.
    Very sad to see it go because it’s been a blast to drive, but the money I get will go towards a very exciting business venture, so I’m OK with it (well, kind of OK!).

    $195,000 or best offer.

    Thanks :)

    Never saw any evidence of repair work while the car was apart during the project, so I would say no. Car has a clean Car Fax.

    I think it's spectacular. Did you retain the original parts removed from the car?

    Joe Harris and racerdj- Thanks!
    boat3- I have all of the body panels and wheels. The interior was Cuoio, and I have everything except the seats, headliner, firewall panel. Still have everything else, including the Cuoio dashboard.
