The most successful Ferrari Challenge in the world – An affordable investment – Fantastic performance, can be driven on circuits Introduced in 2004, the F430 is part of the Ferrari V8 line, replacing the 360 Modena. It benefitted from development carried out on the Ferrari Enzo and technology acquired in F1. It was given an ” E-Diff ” differential and running gear managed electronically, with five positions operated by the manettino on the steering wheel. These driving aides allow the driver to exploit the 490 bhp of the 4.3-litre engine safely. Belonging to the exclusive ” over 300 km/h ” club (top speed of 315 km/h), the Ferrari F430 can cover a kilometre from a standing start in 21.6 seconds. A “Challenge” version was developed so that cars could be contested in a one-make championship series in Europe and the rest of the world. The car on offer is exceptional as it took part for three successive years at the European and World Championships of the Ferrari Challenge, driven by the famous Ange Barde, a French driver emeritus, 8 times French Champion, between 1991 and 1999 in circuit racing (Formula Renault, Alfa Romeo 145, Renault Megane etc). He took part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans three times in Ferraris and was the European Champion 4 times, 3 times European Vice-Champion and once World Champion in the Ferrari Challenge series, between 2000 and 2008. The 430 on sale totals 42 races, 26 podium finishes, and was the European champion in 2006 (10 podiums, 7 victories), European vice champion in 2007 (8 podiums, 1 victory) and 3rd in the European championship in 2008 (8 podiums, 5 wins). It is in a very good condition, the maintenance has been at the highest level, executed by the different teams, Modena Racing and Bullish Racing. This 430 Challenge represents an excellent investment for a Ferrari collector, given its record and its condition and can be used without complicated assistance.
