Ferrari hasn’t bought a guide transmission in a couple of decade, so I typically discover myself daydreaming of ripping an Italian V-8 and rowing the gears myself. A convertible could be the icing on the cake, in order that’s why I am salivating over this 2005 Ferrari F430 Spider guide that is up for bidding on the Carry a Trailer public sale web site—which, like Automotive and Driver, is owned by Hearst Autos.
After the F430 got here the 458 Italia, which was the final of the high-revving naturally aspirated mid-engine V-8 Ferraris. However that automotive wasn’t provided with a guide transmission, only a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox since lower than 1 p.c of F430 consumers went for the stick. Disgrace. Good factor this F430 with the six-speed guide is up for grabs. Or you possibly can go for this six-speed conversion, however we would not.
The F430 was powered by a 4.3-liter F136 V-8 that revved to 8500 rpm and produced 483 horsepower and 343 pound-feet of torque, despatched to the rear wheels by the six-speed and electronically managed limited-slip differential. In Automotive and Driver testing, an F430 Spider with the F1 automated guide gearbox reached 60 mph in 3.9 seconds.
That is basic Ferrari spec. It is completed in Rosso Corsa crimson with tan leather-based Daytona seats with the prancing horse embossed into the headrests. The silver wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Tremendous Sport tires, and there are optionally available red-painted brake calipers. Rounding out the quintessential Ferrari look are red-stitched F430 ground mats and aluminum pedals.
