Used Ferrari 430

A history lesson...

The F430 was released in 2005 as a replacement for the Ferrari 360 which was starting to be overtaken by the Lamborghini Gallardo and Ford GT in the super car stakes. The 430 features a 4308cc engine and, like the 360, a flat-plane crankshaft resulting in the maximum power of 483bhp being generated at a massive 8500rpm. All those revs mean that the F430 is one of the best sounding cars in the world. 
 
Ferrari learnt from their previous mistakes with the 360 and got the 430's weight right down giving it a power to weight ratio of around 333bhp per tonne. This compares favourably with both the Gallardo and the Porsche 911 Turbo. 
 
At launch, the F430 was available only as a Coupé but the Spider version was released soon after.
 
Bang for your buck
 
The F430 features a lightweight aluminium chassis and alloy body panels. Ceramic carbon brakes were optional and will add to the value of used examples. The interior of the F430 is much improved from the 360, for example the dynamic settings can be controlled with a knob on the steering wheel as in Ferrari's F1 cars. Settings include a 'winter' option as well as 'race' and 'sport'. Also on the steering wheel is an 'engine start' button. The fascia trims are real leather and the pedals are beautifully finished alloy masterpieces. 
 
Externally, the F430 isn't the most beautiful Ferrari ever and still resembles the 360 in many ways. Much of its aerodynamic features are found underneath the car such as the flat undertray. The rear diffuser does a good job of keeping the car on the road. Other details include monogrammed rear mirrors and stunning alloy wheels.
 
What you'll pay
 
A used F430 Coupe from 2005 will set you back around £114,000. The F1 gearbox was a very popular option and so is found in most second hand F430s and will add around £6000 to their value. Models with carbon brakes will also be more expensive than those without. Spider models kick off at around £122,000. All F430s are in insurance group 20 as we would expect.
 
What to check
 
The main problem with used Ferrari  F430s is the clutch and this is the case with F1 models and manual versions, although for markedly different reasons. Manual models were recalled due to a faulty clutch pedal that didn't fully depress properly causing the clutch to overheat and fail. You need to check that the corrective work has been done before purchase. 
 
The F1 transmission is known to eat clutches especially when used in urban areas. 
 
Parts
 
Obviously replacement parts for The Ferrari 430 do not come cheap but if you can afford to run a Ferrari in the first place then you probably won't mind too much. A new clutch will set you back around £3500 and each tyre about £500.
 
These prices are based on the F430 Coupé from 2006 but prices should be broadly similar across the range.
 
How it drives
 
Like Ferrari's F1 cars the F430 features a mid-engined rear-wheel drive layout in contrast to its main rivals, the Gallardo and Porsche 911 Turbo, which both use all-wheel drive. The F430 uses E-Diff, an active limited differential which monitors wheel slip, yaw, driver inputs and many more factors in order to deploy power to the rear wheel in the best position to use it. 
 
Nought to sixty can be achieved in less than four seconds and the maximum speed is over 196mph. Ferrari haven't chased every last bhp in the design of the F430, concentrating instead on making sure it handles as well as it accelerates, which is, after all, what really matters.
 
The Ferrari F430 may be one of the most charismatic of modern sports cars but it is not without its faults. It isn't as reliable as later Lamborghini models, with their Audi influence, or the ultra-reliable Porsche 997 Turbo but it is a Ferrari and that's the point. It will cost you in parts but no other cars turn heads like a Ferrari and to many people with the kind of money to bag a super car, that is 90% of the appeal.
