A 2006 Ferrari F430 is looking for a new home in the U.S. and could be perfect for any Ferrari enthusiast that likes to row their own gears.
Unlike more recent generations of Ferrari’s mid-engined V8 supercars, namely the 458 Italia, 488 GTB, and F8 Tributo, the F430 was offered from the factory with a six-speed manual transmission complete with a gated shifter. This particular example has that desirable gearbox and also has just 18,000 miles on the clock.
The Bring A Trailer auction reveals that the car has had four previous owners and was purchased by the seller in early 2019. It is being sold with service records dating back to 2013, a battery tender, factory accessories, a clean Carfax report and a clean California title in the seller’s name.
Coupled to the six-speed manual is a 4.3-liter naturally aspirated V8 rated at 483 hp and 343 lb-ft (465 Nm). The car underwent a service in November 2018 at Cauley Ferrari of West Bloomfield, Michigan and in February 2019, the water pump was rebuilt and a California emissions test was passed after the Ferrari was brought into the state from Michigan.
Given its mileage, it is little surprise that it has been well maintained and still looks great. This is particularly evident in the cabin, where the leather upholstery on the Daytona-style seats almost looks new, although the seller does mention that the outside bolster of the driver seat is worn.
