This 5250-mile 2006 Ferrari F430 Spider is finished in Tour de France Blue over beige leather. Once deemed the “World’s Best Convertible,” the Pininfarina-designed F430 touts an aluminum chassis, a paddle-shifted F1-style 6-speed transmission, and a 4.3-liter V8 engine, Ferrari’s first all-new engine design in over 50 years. This low-mileage Ferrari is offered from the Exotic Car Trader collection with a clean title and clean Carfax.
This Ferrari F430 Spider boasts the rare Tour de France Blue paint color. The Pininfarina-designed exterior is in exceptional condition, with optional red brake calipers hide behind 19” wheels sporting Scuderia Ferrari center caps. The front bumper has not been drilled for a license plate. The interior has been well-preserved, with the beige leather Daytona seats and carbon fiber accents presenting little to no wear. Paddle shifters operate the transmission, and the steering wheel integrates both a push-button start and an early version of Ferrari’s now-ubiquitous Manettino control knob. This knob allows the driver to select from several driving modes which alter the traction control, suspension, transmission, throttle response, and electronic differential accordingly. A two-stage electric folding hardtop retracts to stow above the engine. The digital odometer displays just 5,249 miles.
The four-valve 4.3-liter V8 engine in the Ferrari F430 Spider is good for 483 horsepower and 343 lb-ft of torque, 80% of which is available below 3500 RPM. This helps propel the 3460-lb F430 Spider to 60 MPH in 3.6 seconds and onward to a top speed of over 190 MPH. The 6-speed “F1” electrohydraulic transmission uses a computer-controlled clutch and a drive-by-wire throttle to shift automatically in just 150 milliseconds.
