    Hello!

    I am proud to list for sale my 2004 Ferrari Challenge Stradale. It is finished in Argento Nurburgring with a red/black Alcantara interior. Pictures do not do this rare combination justice -- it is understated, aggressive, and elegant.

    I purchased this CS in May 2015 from another member of the FerrariChat community. It had 41k miles at the time, and it currently has around 47.5k on the clock. With that said, my CS is in genuinely excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition, and as I've been told, could easily pass as a car with <15k miles. Recent awards for this CS include 2nd place in the 360 class at the 2018 Northwest Region Ferrari Club Concours D'Elegance, up from 3rd place in the same event in 2017.

    Last month, Boardwalk Ferrari went through the entire car to ensure it is perfect for the next owner. Services completed include a full timing belt replacement, annual maintenance (fluids, filters, etc.), changing alarm batteries, and more.

    When I purchased this car, it was already in excellent condition considering having "higher" miles. However, I’ve spent over $40k to bring this CS as close to “like new” condition as possible without cutting any corners. For example, many CS owners know that the lexan engine cover is prone to scratching and occasional discoloration. To the tune of $15k, I replaced this lexan (as well as all surrounding carbon fiber) with factory parts. It looks phenomenal and as if it just left the factory.

    I have all service records for work I’ve had done to the car, as well as extensive records throughout the life of the CS. Annual services have always been completed on time, and always by a Ferrari Dealer or reputable alternative. Many potential repairs that could be expected for a car with this mileage have already been taken care of, including:

    F1 Actuator
    Cats
    Motor & transmission mounts
    Ball joints/bushings/axle boots
    ALL fluids (gearbox, F1, etc)
    ...and more

    Also included are two keys (and fobs), complete toolkit (down to the flashlight!), factory car cover, steering wheel and seat covers, and factory Scuderia shields & wheel caps (currently using OEM carbon shields).

    The car has had no accidents and has a clean carfax. Tires are 2-year old Michelin Pilot SS’s and have minimal wear. The brakes are only 25% worn, which speaks to the longevity of ceramics! Clutch wear is also low - last year it had 76% remaining, but I will update with a new readout when I receive one although I do not expect it to change much.

    I am asking $188,000. Whoever purchases my CS will have a car that can be either driven or serve as eye candy in a collection. This is an excellent opportunity to acquire a rare part of Ferrari's history in an uncommon color combination that will only appreciate with time. Regardless of miles, you will be hard pressed to find a CS that runs better than this.

    Please feel free to reach out with any questions or if you would like to make an offer. Although I am located outside of Seattle, WA, the car is currently at Boardwalk Ferrari outside of Dallas, where it will remain for the next few weeks. Viewings can be arranged.

    I've attached some pictures below. I can be reached best via email at rfreid@cmcseattle.com. I am not looking to wholesale the car.

    Thanks for reading!

    Are the CF Shields on the front fenders part of the original spec, or were they changed? If they were changed, what is involved with changing them back to the originals?

    Not part of the original spec but they are Ferrari OEM parts. Changing back to originals very easy. Takes a dealer about 15 minutes to do. We have the factory shields.

    I've seen this car in person many many times and you would never guess the mileage. It shows like a low mileage garage queen. With my 13k miles 360CS parked side by side, one would be hard pressed to find any major differences in wear. The interior looks great in person, paint looks great, and the car has been cared for by the same Ferrari trained mechanic who works on my CS and murci (and many other much rarer and more expensive exotics). When he says he spent a fortune replacing the lexan, all that was off about it was the adhesive seal had shown through the frit paint on the lexan in a few spots (which happens to all CSes). That's the level of attention to detail and care this car has received. Whoever buys this car will get a fantastic piece of Ferrari history and won't have to feel guilty driving it - as it's meant to be. These cars are meant to be driven - they thrive under responsible use. Go view it in person and you'll see what I mean. Congrats to whoever buys this!

    I just turned 20K miles on my CS this week and I swear it runs better than it ever has. Good luck with the sale.

    Nice car. I assume belts were done before you purchased it?
