1993 FERRARI 348 GT COMPETIZIONE
The ex-Oprey car and one of three with racing history
For sale by Jan B. Lühn – Details HERE
• One of 11 built 348 GT Competizione
• One of three cars with period racing history
• Freshly overhauled by Michelotto
• Eligible for the Ferrari Club Competizione GT
Chassis No 84248
The Ferrari 348 was build as a replacement for the 328. It was presented in 1989 and was built until 1995 as a mid-engine V8-powered 2-seat sports car. It was the final V8 model developed under the direction of Enzo Ferrari before his death, commissioned to production posthumously.
Specific history of this car:
Chassis number #84248 is one of 11 cars being hand built by Michelotto in Padua (nine 348 GTCs and two 348 GT LM). From mid 1993 it was for the first time ever possible to purchase a customers competition car directly from Ferrari. Suitable for several top racing series as Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring, these cars would be pitched up against the likes of Porsche’s mighty 911 RSR’s and the Venturi 400.
Michelotto fitted hot 360bhp engines with reconfigured fuel mapping and F40 halfshafts into the GT Competiziones. Also the bodywork was changed, including a Lexan rear window and lightweight alloy panels for the front lid and engine cover. Carbon composite was used for the doors, bumpers and the undertray, supplementary ducts feeding cool air to the rear brakes. The brakes themselves were uprated 15-inch cross-drilled Brembo discs, wider Speedline five-spoke magnesium wheels being typically shod with slick Goodyear tyres. Michelotto uprated the suspension with fully adjustable Koni dampers and anti dive geometry, strengthening gussets having been installed around the engine bay. The cockpits were completely stripped and fitted with an FIA-spec roll cage, OMP race seats and occasionally, electric windows. Just eleven Michelotto Competizione’s were built, most going straight to collectors who rarely chose to race them.
This specific car was purchased new by the well known dutch Ferrari collector Michel Oprey. He raced the car in several races including among others the Ferrari-Porsche-Challenge from ‘94-’96. On the racetrack he later replaced the car with a Ferrari F40 LM but kept the 348 in his private collection.
The previous owner purchased the car directly from Michel Oprey but never really used it. Since we purchased the car, the GTC went straight back to Michelotto for a complete check and partial restoration. The car has now been returned back to the livery of the 90’s when Oprey raced it in the Porsche-Ferrari Challenge the Netherlands and Germany.
It is believed that #84248 is one of only three 348 GT Competizione that really raced in period.
This is a very rare opportunity to purchase of the first factory built Ferrari GT racing cars. These cars are still very competitive in the right hands and the car can be seen as an entry ticket into prestigious events as the official Ferrari Club Competizione GT, the Masters Series or the Global Endurance races organized by Peter Auto.
1994 Ferrari 348 Challenge at Worldwide Auctioneers
Estimate is around US $ 150.000
CHASSIS NO: ZFFRG35A5R0098818
All details and more informations about the auction HERE
• 1 of only 32 factory Challenge race cars produced by Ferrari
• One of the only cars that was never raced
• Only 20,772 miles from new
• Exceptional original condition
• Included are books, tools, records, window sticker and extra keys
3,405 cc DOHC V-8 engine, Bosch Motronic fuel injection, 312 HP at 7,200 RPM, five-speed manual transaxle, four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, four-wheel double-wishbone suspension with coil springs and shock absorbers
The 348 Challenge cars were the first in the line of the Ferrari Challenge models which are still being produced to this day. As an important part of modern Ferrari history, genuine Challenge cars are now becoming increasingly sought-after. These original factory race cars were modified from the factory with special features that included factory roll bar mounts, racing belt eyelets behind the driver and passenger seats, lightweight fiberglass bumpers and modified suspension geometry. These special factory race cars were then shipped from Maranello to authorized Ferrari dealers for their final Challenge specification parts to be installed. These items included OMP roll cages, OMP racing seats, OMP five-point harnesses, 18” Speedline wheels, Challenge specification exhausts, Challenge springs and more. The Ferrari 348 and 355 Challenge cars have the distinction of being the last Ferrari factory racing cars produced that could be driven on the street and mark the end of an era. These last Challenge cars still retained a manual gearbox and do not have on-board computers, traction control and F1 gearboxes, making them fairly easy to repair and service. These cars are raw, pure and very fun to drive.
Ferrari produced just 32 factory Challenge cars for the American market. This exceptional example, Chassis Number 098818, was delivered new to Ferrari of Monterey, in Monterey, California. The owner’s manual was signed by none other than Al Roberts, of Ferrari Challenge fame. What is most unusual and of interest to many Ferrari historians is the fact that the words “Challenge Package” and “Ferrari 348 TB Challenge” are written on its original factory window sticker. Equally rare is the fact that this 348 Challenge is potentially one of only three or four of these cars never converted for racing. It has never been raced and has spent its entire life as a road car in Southern California. This highly desirable Ferrari is in stunning original condition with original paint, original interior and with all its rare and identifiable Ferrari 348 Challenge specifications. Equally at home on the road or on the track, this is a rare chance to acquire one of the most significant Ferraris of the era.

1994 Ferrari 348 tb Challenge # 098791- Grigio Met. with red interior (the only 348CH in this color)
This is #26 of 32 “Factory Challenge” Ferrari 348 tbs, and is in excellent mechanical condition, having had an engine-out major service completed in April, 2017 by renowned Ferrari specialist, Tim Stanford. Cosmetics are “race car excellent”, with shiny, mostly original paint and straight body with even panel gaps (race livery, including sponsor decals, intact)- one of the benefits of having never sustained any major crash damage! Original OMP “348 Challenge” carbon-kevlar seats reupholstered in red fabric with proper embroidered logos.
Yes, although it is a bit of a “hair shirt”, I’ve driven this car numerous times to/from track days at PBIR, Sebring and Homestead without any issues- other than the noise (from the unsilenced Challenge exhaust) and heat (no a/c, of course, although I do have the components stored if one were inclined to re-install)!
This was a race car since new, having competed in the Ferrari Challenge series in 1994 and 1995 on the Lake Forest Sportscars team, and retains its full Challenge race equipment (including Speedline magnesium Challenge wheels- 8”x18” front, 10”x18” rear), with the following being the only deviations from “as raced” spec:
(1) Upgraded Brembo big brake rotors and calipers
(2) Roll cage side impact bar removed (left in the garage, as I drive this car to/from the track and value ease of ingress/egress)
(3) Toyo R888 “R Compound” race tires substituted for the original Pirelli D3 slicks- again, I drive to/from the track, so full slicks are too risky)
(4) Window net removed (again, left in the garage, as I drive this car to/from the track)
In addition to the items noted above as being stored in the garage, the car also comes with the following spares:
(1) Odyssey race battery
(2) OMP fire bottle
(3) Set of beautiful Fikse wheels, excellent condition (8”x18” front, 10”x18” rear), mounted with Goodyear Eagle F1 tires (old, but with lots of tread)
Includes complete factory tool kit (even the tire inflator bottle is there), leather binder with all books except service booklet, red Ferrari car cover, and a 348 Parts Manual.
Car comes with complete ownership and service history from “Day 1” in a 3-ring binder (including the original window sticker and Warranty Card branded “CHALLENGE”), as well as some, but not all, race history. This is not my first Challenge car, but it has certainly been the best, both mechanically and cosmetically. Unfortunately, age and worsening orthopedic issues dictate that it go to someone who will be able to get more use from it, while preserving a piece of Ferrari Challenge history.
The car is located in Florida, and will be on-track on Thursday during the Cavallino Classic, and otherwise available that weekend if you’d like to see it. Thanks.
Price: $175,000 (Ferrari street car trades of comparable value considered- 3-pedal 430?).

The GTB was the last version of the 348 coupe to be built. Subtle changes were incorporated to improve the styling, suspension geometry, chassis and engine power over the previous 348 TB model. One of only 252 produced this particular GTB chassis 98542 was purchased new in early 1994 by Mr. M Oprey through the famous Dutch Ferrari importer Kroymans. The car was immediately converted to Ferrari Challenge specification using the Ferrari supplied Challenge kit by DLR Tuning in Holland for the 1994 race season. It then raced in the European Ferrari Challenge Championship 1994-1995 without incident. The majority of the original 348 Challenge cars were converted from 348 TB or TS cars making this GTB example extremely rare.
The 348 Challenge cars were the first in the line of the Ferrari Challenge models which are still being produced to this day. As an important part of modern Ferrari history genuine Challenge cars with period racing history are now becoming increasingly sought after. This unmolested car has covered 10,067km and is complete with its original warranty manual, Ferrari supplied 348 Challenge Press photographs/documents and 348 GT Owner’s manual. The 348 Challenge is one of the last Ferraris to offer a pure driving experience with no power assistance or electronic aids; equally at home on the road or on the track.

1995 Ferrari F355 Challenge, street legal, Championship winner
Details and more Pictures: https://www.classicdriver.com/de/car/ferrari/f355/1995/542590
All taxes paied, Car is in Austria. Major technical service done with invoices.
This particular 355 was campaigned extensively (and very successfully) in the North American Challenge Series, from 1997 to 2000. With many first places across the country, throughout its career, it was actually 1st overall, in the 2000 season!
What makes this car even more special however, is the fact that it is titled for road use. A total of just 108 F355 Challenge cars were built (18 of which were right hand drive), making them extremely rare, but finding a road legal example, with a US title, is far rarer still (possibly, one of only two such cars in the US and one of only ten worldwide).
This therefore, represents an unparalleled opportunity to purchase not only one of the rarest examples of the last manual transmission, Ferrari Challenge cars, but also a championship-winning one with a superb racing history!

A unique and special 1994 Ferrari F355 Challenge car with european street legal title
One of the FIRST – A unique and special 1994 Ferrari F355 Challenge car with european street legal title.
This 355 Challenge was delivered as a Berlinetta to a well known Ferrari Dealer. At that time there was a Challenge KIT available from Ferrari which was bought by the Dealer and mounted according to the Ferrari Cahllenge specifications into the car to race in his own Team. Thats the reason, why this car has a street legal titel. This was possible only in the year 1994, as from 1995/1996 on, Ferrari delivered purely factory made race cars without street legal titles.
The car is from 1994 so one of the first Challenge cars ever.
The car comes with a fresh service from a well known Ferrari Dealer.
This Ferrari has been restored making perhaps best condition 355 CH available anywhere.
Painted in the original Rosso Corsa.
New Paint, new livery graphics (removable if purchaser so desires), new leather dash & new leather trim around the rear window, new alcantara headliner, new Pirelli Trofeo tires, all the interior plastic switches were refinished so as to eliminate any of the so-called “sticky” parts. New Challenge set covers were obtained from Italy, including seat cushions, to restore the seats to new looking condition. A lot of Carbon parts in the interior. An engine-out service & detail was performed, seatbelts restored, new windshield (original windshield had a few pit marks), restored wheels, etc.
This F355CH marks the end of the Enzo Era. There will never be another Ferrari road and track race-car like this. A car you can drive to the track, race and drive home.
Asking price 150.000 EUR

Porsche had paved the way for the single-brand, single-product Challenge with the Porsche Cup. On weekends, (happy) owners of Porsche 944 Turbo, then Porsche 911 were engaged in knife battles! The return of the Gentlemen Drivers in the 1960s. With this in mind, Ferrari tried the adventure in 1993 with the Ferrari Challenge. Mission accomplished, success was achieved and nearly 50 Ferrari 348 “courted” Ferrari 348s competed on weekends on the circuit. With the Ferrari F355, Maranello moved up a gear and improved its sedan, which became the F355 “Challenge”…
Fortunately, we find the lines of the Ferrari F355, designed with unparalleled success by Pininfarina and her wind tunnel. A true stylistic heir to the Ferrari 348 lineage, the F355 Challenge, on the other hand, like its sisters in the series, has abandoned some very “eighties” eccentricities such as the square tail lights behind the grid for classic round lights. Similarly, the lines have softened compared to the 348, which has gained both grace and elegance. A grace that turns into aggressiveness and sportiness on the F355 Challenge since the trim is lowered, the wheels are wider with a more negative camber, which accentuates the sportiness of this racing berlinette. As a worthy competition car, the F355 Challenge does not allow its towing rings to protrude elegantly from its front and rear bumpers in the event of a breakdown or accident on the circuit. The entire lower part of the hull, as on standard models, benefits from a neat aerodynamics with a fairing that improves airflow under the car and promotes ground effect (like a suction cup). This allows the F355s to dispense with a fin. But it should be noted that from 1999 the F355 Challenge will win a rear spoiler that will contribute to improving the offset and therefore the speed of passage in curves. The interior may look identical to a standard F355 to the layman, but the discerning enthusiast will detect new bucket seats with a cage hoop and harnesses. All soundproofing was removed to save weight, and some pilots also chose to remove the air conditioner. For racing purposes, a fire extinguisher is also standard. Finally, we always find with pleasure the metal grid and the fine lever overhung by its ball… In the small details, the stylized “Challenge” monogram is attached to that of “F355” on the stern of the car.
Although the original mechanics of the standard F355 are particularly efficient and well designed, Maranello’s engineers have had to rethink many of the details associated with intensive racing use. In order to ensure that moving parts are always ideally lubricated, the lubrication system is optimized to be more efficient. The cooling fans are larger so that the 40-valve V8 can breathe as well as possible. All gearbox and engine mounts are replaced by stronger models and the exhaust is more efficient and noisier! The result of the engineers’ work brings the power to 380 hp at 8,250 rpm, an improvement of 60 horsepower compared to the last Ferrari 348 Challenge! The competitors were strictly monitored by the technical commissaires of the Ferrari Challenge and the V8s were only allowed to make simple adjustments. The gearbox is arranged transversely and has six gears (with reverse).
The chassis is based on the standard F355s. Logically, we therefore find a supporting steel frame with welded tubes of variable cross-sections. An auxiliary chassis on which the powertrain is grafted accompanies it according to a method widely proven at Ferrari (the Ferrari BB 512i was already designed in this way). The bodywork is therefore placed like a skin on the chassis and is made of aluminium and steel depending on the parts. The four wheels are independent and are fixed on superposed quadrilateral suspensions. The damping of the standard version is retained with its electronic active control to limit changes in attitude according to the dynamic circumstances of the car. This is all the more useful in racing (compared to road use) where the importance of being able to brake as late and as well as possible in order to play as well as possible on mass transfer is vital. Four ventilated discs take care of braking the car at best and above all for a long time with an ABS that could be disconnected for demanding drivers. The 18-inch wheels were equipped with either 245/265-18 AV and 305/645-18 AR Pirelli slicks or 225/40 ZR 18 AV and 265/40 ZR 18 AR Pirelli PZero rain tyres.
Our Ferrari F355 Challenge was delivered new in 1995. It took part to the 2001 Spa Ferrari Days in its black and yellow livery, the colours of Ferrari UK. It became then the property of Charlie White in 2005, who drove it for several seasons in the Pirelli Ferrari Open often on the podium, and regularly in the top 5. Serviced in 2015 by Toni Auto, it has since been rarely used, just for a few track days and more recently for a demonstration at the Global Endurance Legends by Peter Auto in 2018. It has been well maintained in working order by its current owner at a workshop in the south of France hosting many of these racing cars from the 90s-2010s. With less than 20,000km, the security equipments are up to date. The F355 Challenge is the perfect car both on track days, as well as for the new series celebrating the more recent racing cars.

The Ferrari F355 Berlinetta was introduced at the 1994 Geneva Motor Show; the highly demanded successor to the now ageing 348. The 355 was not only a stark improvement stylistically on the 348, but it also saw a number of technical improvements, such as power steering and electronically controlled damping.
The F355 name referred to the new 3.5-litre V8 engine with 5 valves per cylinder; a unit capable of propelling the beautiful Pininfarina-styled body to 60mph in under 5 seconds and top speed in excess of 180 mph. Further, the motor is responsible for what remains today one of the finest engine notes ever to come from Maranello.
In 1995, Ferrari revealed a race-spec F355 Challenge model to be used specifically in the Ferrari Challenge race series. This involved a $30,000 factory-to-dealer upgrade kit. This upgrade package encompassed a large number of modifications to the standard F355 Berlinetta including a roll-cage, bucket seats, competition steering wheel, lightweight exhaust, rear wing, competition clutch, competition springs, and a lightened front bumper.
The F355 Challenge was also given new 18″ Speedline magnesium wheels that were wrapped in Pirelli racing slicks, whilst upgraded Brembo brakes, carried over directly from the F40 helped improve the car’s stopping power.
Just 108 original F355 Challenge cars were produced in total, all fitted with the iconic 6-speed gated manual transmission. The car we are delighted to offer is an EU supplied example that raced within the Ferrari Challenge series for Team Ferrari Eberlein with the Gentleman driver Dieter Weigl. The car benefitted from a full engine out service at an official Ferrari Dealer in Austria with invoice in October 2015. The car is also fully street legal, making it a great opportunity to obtain a highly collectable Ferrari that can be enjoyed thoroughly on both the road and track!

You will find very few Ferrari Challenge cars anywhere in the world more complete. Few F355 Challenge cars come up for sale in a year. When you see one, look closely for what it is “not” coming with. Look at all the parts that are not original or what it is missing. Many of the cars in the US ran in the SCCA racing series and lost much originality with changes to the car because of their different regulations. Then look to see if the car looks like rats have made it home with owners that just did not care and put away very wet without much care. You will find many challenge cars in this condition. It will take quite a lot of money to bring them back and that is just the aesthetics. All the small things add up. We have seen other challenge cars with mechanical difficulties due to lack of use and owner neglect. I’d think most buying a Ferrari for the track would love it to run like an industrial sewing machine – one that just purs and goes and goes, and goes without issues. If a car is missing parts – they are likely to never be seen again. Then there is the question about the car’s sponsorship. Was it sponsored by a local dentist or did it have backing like The Discovery Channel, Speedvision, and major Cable Entertainment Channels? It would seem that the latter is likely to look great anywhere and will continue to hold interest and demand throughout the future. Does the car have interesting history? Do you know what place it finished or is there no clue as to it’s original driver and their story of how they got involved in the series?
So if you are looking for a complete car and one that you can proudly put in your collection, look no further. We started with a good Ferrari – it is now a great Ferrari. It’s now up to the new owner to pick and choose how to enjoy. The sky is the limit.
F355 Challenge car values seem to float around $130k for a car without history – these are usually missing many original challenge parts like seats, the roll cage, brakes, etc – or one that looks like it has sat with the rats and was put away very wet. There is a huge difference between the lower priced cars and the higher priced cars. There is also a difference in value for the Factory Challenge cars and Evolutione cars which are rarer in number. The nice cars have been sold for as high as $245,000 to collectors in Europe in recent history.
This car is priced firmly at $185,000 based on completeness of records, parts, and famous corporate sponsorship. We are open to trade(s) of other Ferrari’s or challenge cars.
The car comes with a B&W Xerox copy of the MSO (Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin). Depending on different states or countries, this may enable a collector to register the car for street driving. We are still working with the original driver who is searching his storage for the original document. – But the car is definitely better suited on track with its precise, and tight suspension, lower ground clearance, and other track focused features. It shines on the track and will leave many newer street Ferrari’s in the dust there.
If you are a collector and want a Challenge car with unique history and fame, then look no further and just enjoy. Contact me for further information.

The Ferrari 360 GT
The Ferrari 360 GT was developed by Ferrari Spa in collaboration with Michelotto Automobili, to compete in the FIA N-GT class in the early to mid-2000’s. Between 2002 and 2004, Ferrari Spa commissioned Michelotto to build 20 Ferrari 360 GT’s, with a further 17 360 Challenge cars also being converted.
Michelotto Automobili was Ferrari Spa’s chosen and preferred competition car developer and builder, with previous projects together including the 308 GTB Group B rally car, 288 GTO Evoluzione, F40 LM, F333 SP. Success was targeted, and achieved consistently, including a class victory at Le Mans and four consecutive FIA Sportscar Championships with the F333 SP.
The 360 GT benefitted from a huge weight reduction of 91 kg over the 360 Challenge cars, with the wiring loom lightened, doors and bonnets in full carbon fibre and redundant chassis brackets being removed. The suspension was also upgraded with larger Brembo brakes and a rear wing fitted, ensuring the driver could make full use of the 3.6 litre, 40-valve, 4-cam, V-8 engine, which now produced in excess of 430 bhp! The gearbox was a six-speed sequential unit with a paddle on the right to change up, and a paddle on the left to change down a gear. This focussed weight saving resulted in a car which was 30 kg under the minimum weight limit of 1,100 kg, so ballast was placed in the car to meet these regulations.
The 360 GT was the car that brought Ferrari back to modern GT racing, thanks mainly to its sheer success, which started in 2001 with both the FIA N-GT driver and team championships. The Ferrari 360 raced around the world, competing at the famed Le Mans 24 Hours, Daytona 24 Hours and 12 Hours of Sebring.
This Ferrari 360 GT
The car we are offering here, chassis 2026, is one of only 20 360 GT’s built by Michelotto Automobili for Ferrari Spa. Cristiano Michelotto himself has confirmed this car to have been delivered new to Steve Goldman in California, USA, in 2002.
Goldman, a resident of Malibu, California, is an engineer by training, and was the CEO of a high-tech company for many years, but in the early 2000’s found his way into motorsport and bought this Ferrari 360 GT to compete in events, and sparingly at track days. In August 2003, Goldman raced this car at the California Speedway, qualifying first and finishing third in class. A year later, again at the California Speedway, he qualified second and finished 3rd overall. Goldman also allowed Bob Faieta, team owner of Competition Motorsport and American Le Mans Series driver enter the car into small club events.
With Goldman, this Ferrari 360 GT joined a sizeable collection of competition and sports for about 6 years, before crossing the States to reside in Florida with Jason Owen in Florida. Contained within the history file of this 360 GT are copies of many invoices for regular maintenance work performed by Ferrari and Lamborghini specialists, Rosso Corsa in Jupiter, Florida.
In January 2011, this 360 GT entered the world-renowned Palm Bach Cavallino Classic XX, where it was awarded Platinum in Class 6 in the Concorso d’Eleganza. To receive a Platinum award, the car must score higher than 95 points after judging.
The maintenance invoices from Rosso Corsa in Florida document an engine rebuild in 2017 and 2018. Since this rebuild, the car has not returned to the track, instead it has been carefully stored, and is today presented in exceptional condition, a true testament to the limited use it has seen.
The car is offered with the following spares:
– spare set of BBS magnesium wheels and slick tyres,
– OMP passenger seat (so you can share the on-track experience)
– spare 360 GT engine (without auxiliaries)
This car is eligible for the Ferrari Club Competizioni GT series, Aston Martin Masters Endurance Legends, Peter Auto Endurance Racing Legends and Challenge & GT Days. These series offer you the opportunity to easily enjoy your even-numbered Ferrari competition car on track, just where it belongs. In July 2020, Peter Auto will be offering the Endurance Racing Legends series the opportunity to compete at the Le Mans Classic event, don’t you want to be racing your newly acquired Ferrari 360 GT around the most famous circuit in the world?

The Ferrari F430 shared its aluminum chassis with the 360 that preceded it, but its Pininfarina-penned styling charted a new course for Maranello. The F430 channeled Ferrari’s past designs with taillights from the Enzo, Testarossa-like side mirrors that stretched out from its A-pillars, and ducts integrated into its sides and front fascia akin to 1960s Formula 1 cars. Pininfarina’s Frank Stephenson is credited with the F430’s striking design.
Though its styling was eye-catching, the F430’s big newsmaker at its debut at the 2004 Geneva Motor Show was under its glass engine cover. The F430 marked the first use of Ferrari’s new dual overhead camshaft, 32-valve V-8 engine, codenamed F136 E. The 90-degree V-8 was co-developed with Maserati, but Maranello’s version got its own 180-degree flat-plane crankshaft. Chain-driven camshafts replaced rubber belts in the automaker’s previous eight-cylinder. The new, modern V-8 was the first clean-sheet design for Ferrari in about half a century. The new engine sent its approximately 490 hp to the rear wheels via either a six-speed manual transmission or the automaker’s six-speed F1 gearbox.
It did not take long for Ferrari to take the wraps off a GT2 racing version of the F430. Developed with longtime racing partner Michelotto Automobili, the F430 GTC was eligible for American Le Mans Series racing, the Le Mans Series, the FIA GT Championship, and even the 24 Hours of Le Mans!
The F430 GTC made use of a downsized 4.0-liter version of the new V-8 in order to comply with FIA rules. The F430 GTC’s engine was rated at 470 hp, but its impressive power-to-weight ratio meant it was significantly faster than the 550-hp F430 GT3. A six-speed sequential-shift transmission put power to the wheels in rapid fashion.
The F430 GTC featured a big rear wing with an integrated Gurney flap to enhance the design’s already impressive downforce plus carbon fiber body panels to reduce weight. Race cars rode on 18-inch center-lock lightweight wheels wrapped in Michelin racing slicks rather than the 19-inch wheels with Pirelli tires on street cars. While the road-going F430 debuted adjustable dampers could be tweaked via a knob on its steering wheel, the F430 GTC’s suspension retained garage-only adjustment. Noting the difference between the street F430 and the F430 GTC during a test at Miller Motorsports Park in Utah in 2012, Road & Track wrote that the two Ferraris “are like shades of red: in a similar family, yes, but totally different.”
The F430 GTC got off to a strong start by winning the FIA GT2 Manufacturers’ Cup and Drivers’ title in 2006 and 2007, the ALMS GT2 Manufacturers’ Title in 2007, and it won the GT2 class at Le Mans in 2008. Ultimately, the F430 GTC made Ferrari a dominant force in GT racing, and this has continued with the 458 GT2 and 488 GTE. Including the 430 GTC prototype (chassis 2404) that is also owned by us, it is believed that approximately 53 examples were built in total.
Specific history of this car:
The featured car, chassis 2642 can seen as one of the very first Ferrari Works cars. It was entered by the Piacenza based team AF Corse of Amato Ferrari, who until today runs all the Ferrari Works cars in the WEC championship.
The car was first entered in the 2009 FIA GT championship with the two star drivers Gianmaria Bruni and Toni Vilander. Bruni today is known as one of the most successful GT drivers ever!

After its active, professional racing career the car was sold by AF Corse to an amateur racer and collector. The car was then mainly used for club racing or track days within Europe. It was subsequently restored back to its 2009 championship winning spec and underwent the Ferrari Classiche certification program.
The car will now be sold with a very interesting and valuable spares package, the Ferrari Classiche red book and well as some period documentation.
This is a rare opportunity to purchase a real piece of Ferrari racing history that is also eligible for the Ferrari Club Competizioni GT, the Masters series of the Peter Auto series only to mention a few.

2007 Ferrari F430
All details and more photos HERE
The Ferrari F430 Challenge is a production-based race car built by Ferrari. The car is directly based on the standard F430 and uses the same 4.3L V8 engine. It was introduced at the 2005 Frankfurt Motor Show to supersede the Ferrari 360 Challenge in the Ferrari Challenge and the Rolex Sports Car racing series.
The F430 Challenge is a non-road legal variant of the road-going Ferrari F430, it has been extensively modified by Ferrari to boost its on circuit performance with extensive weight reduction and suspension changes. Just like in previous Ferrari Challenge cars the engine has largely remained the same as on the production road cars except for some enhanced breathing by means of a racing exhaust system and some engine management tweaks and fine blueprinting. Furthermore the body styling has received very few styling changes with the Formula One inspired single central nut (slick shod) BBS wheels hiding enormous carbon brakes.
The transmission is derived from Ferrari’s Formula One program, and offers the same 150 ms shift times as in the standard Ferrari F430 with no option of a manual H-gate gearshift. Fifth and sixth gears have been tweaked, as well as the final drive ratio, specifically for the Challenge car. Weight saving efforts have affected all areas of the car, the most noticeable of which being the cockpit. Inside, the F430 Challenge has no carpets or sound deadening, no stereo, and the standard leather seats have been replaced with ultra light FIA approved carbon racing seats. A lifeline snap off boss allows the Alcantara steering wheel to be removed from the car to aid entry and exit to the cockpit. The race wheel replacing the standard cars airbag equipped road car wheel. It also has buttons for pit radio, and for interfacing with the digital instrument display. A full roll cage and 6 point racing harnesses are also present in the cockpit along with super light carbon door panels and Lexan front, side and rear windows replacing all road car glass. The characteristics of the car have been retained from the standard gearbox’s “Race” mode. Traction control is permanently disengaged, along with the stability system. The car does retain ABS and ASR though. The racing modifications are present in most all of the components, with the E-Differential being replaced by a mechanical one, and the suspension settings modified for racing.
The engine is the same 90° 4.3 litre V8 as in the standard F430. The output remains the same at 483 hp (360 kW), as well as the torque at 343 lb?ft (465 N?m). The engine is equipped with Double Overhead Camshafts and contains 4 valves per cylinder. The engine is, and always has been, naturally aspirated. The engine is mounted behind the cockpit, and faces longitudinally (along the length of the car).
The transmission is the 6-speed, paddle operated, sequential manual found in the F430. The transmission uses Formula One technology and can shift gears in 150 ms. The brakes use carbon ceramic material, which is very resistant to brake fade. Both front and rear suspension use double wishbones and anti-roll bars. The exhaust system is updated for the Challenge car, placing the outlet ports higher in the back of the car. The back also includes a new grille to help with drawing heat out of the engine.(0-100 in 2.89 second, top speed 350 kmh/h)
This particular F430 Challenge was delivered to its first French owner through Charles Pozzi (France) in February 2007.
Options fitted to this car:
– Driver seat size XL/L
– 430 CH pass. seat kit XL/L
2 sets of extra wheels are included, see picture number 22.
Production was limited to just 142 cars over the 2007 to 2010 production period. It is estimated that more than half these race cars have been written off during the various Ferrari Challenge series around the world. This means that approximately 50 (or less) would be in existence today.
Ferrari F430 Challenge for sale by DK Engineering
Direct link to DK Engineering
Ferrari created the F430 Challenge, a track only variant of the hugely popular F430, to boost its on circuit performance by extensive weight reduction and suspension changes. Just like in previous Ferrari Challenge cars the engine has largely remained the same as on the production road cars. The F430 challenge does however, breathe a little easier by means of a racing exhaust system. Some engine management tweaks and fine blueprinting increase the power too. The body styling has received very few styling changes with just the Formula One inspired single centre lock BBS wheels hiding enormous carbon brakes.
This 2008 factory built Challenge car has had just 3 owners from new. The first two owners used the car for track days only however with the third owner the car was entered in a select few rounds of the Ferrari Pirelli Open where it was most successful and scored a couple of class wins. Following this and with just 9,000 kms covered DK sold the car in 2016 to the current owner as part of his stable of Ferrari race cars.
In the current custodians ownership the car has been professionally stored and maintained by DK Engineering with a no expense spared mantra as evidenced by invoices on file totalling in excess of £25,000 in the current ownership. Used sparingly for a handful of track days, it participated in two rounds of the up and coming, AMOC GT Challenge series in 2017. At both rounds the car scored outright wins, and latterly at Silverstone, a “perfect weekend” of Pole Position, Overall Race Win and fastest lap.
The car has always been maintained with a cavalier regard for expense and as such is in superb and “on the button” condition. It has had the necessary upgrades and is fitted with the essential upgrade FF Corse Aero-Kit; it is accompanied by a comprehensive spares package including 8 spare wheels and tyres. The car is instantly eligible and competitive for the new international Ferrari Club Racing Series, the AMOC GT Challenge and for the Global Endurance legends series which is fast gathering pace, a trip to the Red Bull Ring for the Ferrari only “Challenge and GT days” event would also be an opportunity for the new owner.

Here we present collectors with the very rare opportunity to acquire the car that bookends the V12 racing history of Ferrari, and from its original and sole owner no less! This very rare racing GT Ferrari is in fantastic condition and would make a wonderful addition to any serious collection of the marque’s cars, of racing cars in general or someone looking for a competitive car in a variety of series on both sides of the Atlantic.
The origins of the Ferrari 575 GTC can be traced back to the late 1990s when Stephane Ratel, a co-founder of the legendary BPR Global GT Series, yearned to see Ferrari produce a true GT race car to join his burgeoning FIA GT Championship. One issue with previous regulations in GT racing was that in order for a car to be eligible, the manufacturer had to produce the cars. However Ratel finally managed to persuade the FIA to change this rule so that tuners could build racing versions of a road car with or without a manufacturerʼs involvement.
In 2000 he founded Grande Tourisme Racing Development Ltd (GTRD) to commission Italtecnica to build a racing variant of the 550 Maranello. Four orders were placed, but reliability issues plagued the cars, so it was not the glorious debut Ratel envisaged. Frederic Dor had placed an order but being unhappy with the early results he cancelled and asked Prodrive to develop a car. Their 550 GTS enjoyed much success including class victories at Le Mans, plus the 2003/4 FIA GT Championship for Teams and Drivers, although in effect its resources were similar to a major works effort.
Encouraged, in early 2003 Ferrariʼs Corse Clienti department announced they would produce their own car in collaboration with N.Technology, to be called the 575 GTC. The new car was specifically aimed at the gentleman GT racer, so as with the legendary 365 GTB/4 Competizione ʻDaytonaʼ, there never was a works team. The car was to be based on the new 575M road car, sporting a 6-litre 65 degree V12 tuned to produce 605bhp on FIA restrictors, which transferred power through a 6-speed Xtrac sequential gearbox.
Proving its calibre the new 575 GTC won straight out of the box in the FIA GT round at Estoril driven by Philip Peter and Fabio Babini. The 575 GTCs went on to be raced in the American Le Mans Series, FIA GT & Italian GT Championships, plus in the Sebring 12 Hours, Spa 24 Hours and of course the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Whilst they didnʼt accumulate the same level of success as Prodriveʼs 550, which was not endorsed by Ferrari, the 575 GTC did prove to be as quick when in the right hands, taking outright victories in both FIA & Italian GT, plus and a number of podiums in both championships, along with a class podium in the 12 Hours of Sebring and 2nd overall in the Spa 24 Hours. Of course this disparity in results against the Prodrive cars was in the most part because the 575 was aimed at gentleman drivers, whereas the Prodrive cars were often driven by professionals. The results donʼt really show how closely matched the cars actually were.
In many ways it could be said it was a descendant of the iconic Group 4 ʻDaytonaʼ. What is of great historical significance is the fact that the 575 GTC is the last front- engined V12 Ferrari racing car, bookending a tremendously significant and popular chapter in Ferrariʼs racing history. In all just twelve examples were built, making it one of the rarest GT racing Ferraris of all time.
Chassis 2224 was delivered to Antonin Herbeck of the Czech Republic ahead of the 2005 season. In fact it was the very last 575 GTC built, so is known as an ʻEvoluzioneʼ. Herbeck created his own team, called Rock Media Motors, to run the car and elected to contest the 2005 CSAI Italian GT Championship. Herbeck enlisted the services of Italian ex-F1 and Champ Car driver Andrea Montermini, who by 2005 had spent many years in endurance racing.
The season featured seven rounds, each with two races, at Imola, Misano, Vallelunga, Monza, Hungaroring, Magione and Mugello. Interestingly only qualifying occurred for the first round, with the races being cancelled due to the death of the Pope John Paul II. The GT1 class that year was hotly contested and the Rock Media duo managed to qualify inside the top ten six times across the season including a pole position and a 2nd on the grid, finishing inside the top ten three times. Not a bad performance at all considering Herbeck was in only his second season of racing! Rock Media also contested their home round of the FIA GT Championship, the ʻBrno Supercar 500ʼ, with 2224 in June where they finished 10th overall.
Throughout the year 2224 received various upgrades as they became available including suspension parts and a new rear wing. Herbeck contested Round 1 of the 2006 Italian GT Championship at Imola with Richard Lietz as co-driver, where 2224 was painted yellow. Following this it was retired to Rock Media Motors collection because the Pagani Zonda GR Herbeck has since become so well known for racing across eastern Europe had been readied. Whilst its racing history may not feature major international events like some other 575 GTCs, 2224 has the unique distinction of being the very last front-engined and also the last V12 racing car built and sold by Ferrari (since the FXX and XXK cars were track specials only, never homologated for racing). This car effectively heralds the end of a competitive chapter that defined the marque from the very beginning and its significance is not to be underestimated. Indeed the V12 configuration was one that defined Ferrariʼs image during the 1950s-1970s which were arguably the marqueʼs most significant decades for endurance racing.
2224 has been well maintained since its retirement, and will be sold in good working order and with a new safety fuell cell. The car presents in fantastic condition and includes various spares, including a complete second engine, in itself a very rare item indeed. The engine that is fitted to the car has around 6 hours running time, whilst the spare is rebuilt. The car is eligible for a variety of series including Peter Auto’s Endurance Racing Legends, Masters Endurance Legends, the Challenge and GT Days and Ferrari’s Club Competizione GT.
This Ferrari FXX is in superb condition. Only factory delivery mileage. It was never raced. It is in a private collection. It is likely one of the lowest mileage FXX of all 30 cars and in pristine like-new condition.
It comes complete with a variety of spares.
