For Sale: 2005 Ferrari F430 in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

If it has a prancing horse on the front, then it's a purebred exotic sports car born out of winning on the track. But race-ready cars never looked so good. This extremely clean 2005 Ferrari F430 F1 takes all the competition lessons from international victories, and cloaks it in a bold and coordinated package that makes everyone take notice. That's why it has been treated with the right care - including a dealer service just in April.

The Maranello-applied Corsa Red paint looks fantastic, but you already expected that. A car like this doesn't sit outside. Instead it gets the prime space in the garage where lesser cars get kicked out if they have to be parked anywhere close to it. And the few times when this exotic does get to hit the town (there's under 32k miles on the odometer) there's a clear protective film up front. This level of responsible ownership means the presentation can be described as nearly flawless. This was the first model year for the F430, and this is already gaining a historic following as a car that reset the bar for sleek Ferraris. The design masters at Pininfarina know how to make rolling sculpture, so we know you fell in love/lust at first sight with the bodywork. But more than just beautiful, they work closely with Ferrari on the most advanced aerodynamics, so the design not only looks like it cheats the wind, but in reality, it also really does!

A Ferrari is as much about style as they are about speed, and you are reminded of this the moment you see the beautiful black leather interior with all the red contrast stitching that coordinates with the exterior. The clean black carpeting, smooth door panels, and cool carbon fiber dash inserts make for an attractive sports car. You will find light wear-in on the driver's seat because this car was made to be driven. And it remains beautifully detailed, right down to the embossed logo in the headrests and vented seatback design that reminds us of the classic 365 Daytona. This is a top-dollar vehicle, so it should be no surprise that it comes loaded with great features like power windows, power locks, keyless entry/alarm, cruise control, dual airbags, and automatic A/C climate control. And because this is a car that was made to be driven, you also have handy upgrades, like an AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth, a backup camera, and an integrated radar detector. Details like the power seats and the big red start button are all there to engage you like no other enthusiast machine out there. And you'll really love grabbling the Italian leather steering wheel and utilizing the paddle shifters to make that large central tach dance.

Driving a Ferrari is an experience like no other, and that's why they are forever the ultimate performance cars. The original 4.3-liter DOHC V8 is such a work of art that it gets its own glasshouse behind the driver so everyone can view it. Push the start button, and it comes to life with a frantic and muscular tone that seems to shout, "What are we standing still for?!" This 483 horsepower engine loves to sing its way up to the 8,500 RPM redline like the F1 cars that it's based from. In fact, the "F1" in this car's name refers to the optional six-speed transmission. The race-style paddle shifting gives this car lighting quick shifts, so you truly feel like you're in a competition machine. And all the other details on the F430 have been worked out to maximize performance. There's a smooth undercarriage for airflow, a race-inspired selectable fully independent suspension that sticks to the pavement like glue, and four-wheel disc brakes with large carbon ceramic rotors and bold red calipers. But you already knew a true Ferrari was engineered to be a terrific performance machine. What makes this coupe extra special is that it can also settle into a quieter everyday functionality when needed. That's thanks to features like the power steering, anti-lock brakes, and the auto mode of the transmission.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual packet, Ferrari toolkit, trickle charger, and maintenance receipt from April 2023. So, there's nothing stopping you from taking this sleek and significant prancing horse home, except if someone else gets here first. Call today!!!
