This low-mileage example is as clean as it gets.
If you haven’t seen a 2008 Ferrari F430 Scuderia like this one in person, there’s a good reason. Only 92 were made for the United States market, so they’re quite rare. This one is for sale through GT Motor Cars, and it’s believed to be the lowest-mileage example in the country at under 400 miles, making it that much more desirable.
Thanks to the low miles and what appears to be a posh life, this Ferrari looks almost like it just rolled off the lot at Ferrari of Tampa Bay, where it was originally purchased. It proudly wears Scuderia Red, a popular choice which looks to be in absolutely excellent condition. Pairing nicely is a Rosso Scuderia Livery with the optional racing stripe and gold wheels, creating a well-styled and motorsports-inspired effect.
A Black interior with Alcantara upholstery looks exceptionally clean, no doubt in part to the sparse use of this Ferrari. While it is overall a simple layout, the interior does include a few options like GPS navigation and automatic climate control. I also comes with a fire extinguisher.
Of course, performance for this Ferrari F430 Scuderia is impressive, which is to be expected for a car tuned to be used on the track. The 4.3-liter flat-plane-crank V8 makes 503-horsepower and 347 lb.-ft. of torque. An engine is only as good as the transmission mated to it, and this car uses an impressive F1 automated manual for lightning-fast shifts. Ferrari’s cutting-edge traction control, F1-Trac, is also included. Officially, Ferrari states this car does 0-60 in a blistering 3.6 seconds and can hit 198 mph on a track.
To give you some history, Ferrari revealed the 430 back in 2004 as the replacement for the 360. It has a design penned by Pininfarina and advanced construction, including an aluminum frame and quite a few carbon-fiber parts. The Scuderia pushes performance further, making it a track car you can legally drive on public roads.
This Ferrari comes with the original owner’s manuals, tire inflator, took kit, battery tender, and covers. If you are interested in learning more, contact GT Motor Cars for further details. You should know the dealer offers many services, including collection management, detailing, and storage. It also has an excellent array of quality vehicles for sale.
