Whilst everyone’s attention is drawn to 0-60 times and engines capable of producing a million horsepower, many people forget to cherish the driving sensation a car can provide. Ferrari is an automaker that has mastered the art of balancing power, performance, and comfort to create cars that provide an exhilarating driving experience while standing out from the competition. Ferrari also like to add a little racing flavor to their cars by borrowing ideas from their Formula One cars. The 2008 Ferrari F430 Spider F1 featured here is one such variant that has a few F1 car features and more power than a standard F430. Produced from 2004 to 2009, the Ferrari F430 was the successor to the Ferrari 360. This enthusiast owned F430 Spider F1 is located in Pennsylvania and reported to have just over 10,000 miles on its odometer. With a slew of factory options under its belt, it awaits its next lucky owner.
The F430s exterior design was inspired by the 360 and bears some features from the Ferrari heritage. Few examples are, the Enzo’s taillight and engine cover vents, large oval vents on the front bumper from Ferrari’s racing models from the Sixties, and ‘F430’ marked on the Testarossa-styled driver's side mirror. This 2008 Ferrari F430 Spider F1 includes factory options such as Scuderia Ferrari shields, Challenge-type wheels, and red brake calipers behind them. Its proudly shows off Ferrari’s traditional Rosso Corsa paintwork and rides on Pirelli P Zero tires. The Tan interior of our 2008 Ferrari F430 Spider F1 is fitted with factory options including electrically operated seats, leather rear shelf and a High Power HiFi subwoofer system. Front and rear parking sensors help the driver avoid dinging this beauty against some lesser metal in the car park.
The heart that grants the familiar Ferrari roar is the rear-mid-mounted 4.3L V8 engine. The horsepower figure for the 2008 Ferrari F430 Spider F1 variant is boosted from the standard 490hp to 510hp. This engine is coupled with an F1-style automatic transmission and features a dry sump oil lubrication system. Thanks to the extra power and lighter weight than the standard F430, this powertrain can push this car from zero to sixty in just 3.6 seconds on its way to a top speed of 198mph.
