What comes to mind when you think of a Ferrari? A screaming red sports car with a tuneful engine that captures your heart and soul, as well as your head? In fact, if you ask someone to quickly name an Italian sports car manufacturer, chances are they will exclaim “Ferrari”! The first Ferrari-badged car came from the automaker in 1947, but the company dates back to 1939. It’s got a lot of history, and some iconic models throughout the ages including the 250GTO, Testarossa and F40 which are just a handful of names amongst a veritable platter of tasty ‘Prancing Horses’ – a nickname that comes from their emblem. Ferrari isn’t a small fry either, being the tenth largest automaker in terms of market cap in 2021. In 2004, the F430 model was introduced to replace the F360 sports car, which itself was the replacement for the F355, which replaced the F348…you get the picture. 430 refers to the 4.3L V8 that powers the car. This example is a 2007 Ferrari F430 Coupe 60th Anniversary edition that celebrates 60 years of Ferrari-badged cars. Coming from California, it’s got 17,400 miles on its wheels and the original window sticker is provided as well.
The design of a Ferrari is unmistakable, and its mere silhouette is enough of a calling card. The F430 was penned by renowned Italian design house Pininfarina, in collaboration with Frank Stephenson. Whilst the most popular Ferrari shades are red (rosso) and yellow (giallo), this 2007 Ferrari F430 Coupe 60th Anniversary comes dressed in a black suit with silver ball-polished Challenge rims wearing recently replaced Pirelli tires. Red brake calipers have been specified as a factory option, as has the carbon-fiber rear segment. The interior is in black too, with electric heated seats, driving zone trimmed in carbon fiber, special stitching, upholstered top, leather rear shelf and door moulds. Facing the driver is a set of clear instruments with a yellow-faced rev counter that goes all the way up to 10,000rpm. The cabin also features climate control and the original Ferrari-branded radio/CD player. A fire extinguisher is included in the cabin too.
This Ferrari F430 Coupe 60th Anniversary is powered by Ferrari’s F136E 4.3L (262ci) V8. It puts out 483hp at a heady 8,500rpm and 343 lb ft of torque at 5,250rpm, of which 80% is available below 3,500rpm. Driving the rear wheels through Ferrari’s six-speed F1 automated manual transmission, it’s enough for a 3.6-second sprint from rest to sixty, and this ‘Prancing Horse’ tops out at 196mph. This car has had a recent brake job and oil change too.
