Price is EUR 1.011.500,–

The Ferrari 488 GTE is a remarkable racing car that combines technology, performance, and history. This racing car represents the legacy of the Ferrari brand and stands for continuous innovation and development in motorsport. The frame of the Ferrari 488 GTE is entirely made of aluminum and is designed to achieve an optimal combination of lightweight construction and strength. This ensures exceptional responsiveness and handling, precisely what a racing car needs. The GTE is based on a reinforced 488 road car to meet the demands of the racetrack. Two struts, one in the front and one in the rear, ensure safety by maximizing energy absorption and protecting the integrity of the cockpit in case of an accident. An integrated high-strength steel roll cage structure also reinforces the driver’s seat and the fuel tank itself. This structure guarantees perfect consumption and complete fuel utilization. The structure and kinematics of the suspension design have been completely redesigned specifically for the GTE, while retaining the concept of the road model. Adjustable front and rear stabilizers and shock absorbers are easily accessible to quickly optimize the car for racing. The electronic hardware and control software have been specially developed and designed for the GTE. The extensive use of motorsport components and the integration of electronic units through CAN and high-speed Ethernet communication ensure a high level of precision and maximum responsiveness in the controls. The boost control, traction control, and the ergonomic steering wheel with integrated traction control selection are the result of years of experience in GT racing and the evolution of Formula 1 single-seaters, allowing the driver to confidently exploit the full potential of the car. The data acquisition system, created with a powerful circuit board, enables in-depth performance analysis to improve the correlation between the vehicle’s configuration and its actual performance. Even the electrical system has been optimized to allow the driver to maximize the car’s potential. The GTE´s V8 turbocharged engine shows the most significant differences compared to the road version. The racing V8 has redesigned core components such as pistons, shafts, connecting rods, and turbochargers. The carefully positioned air cooler at the compressor outlet reflects the goal of achieving the quickest possible engine response. Continuous testing is carried out to achieve maximum performance, responsiveness, and superior handling. The completely removable body, except for the roof area, is made of carbon fiber. The body and frame combine to provide outstanding structural integrity, optimizing the car’s stability while remaining extremely lightweight. The 488 GTE continues the tradition of outstanding reliability, which has always been a source of great pride for Ferrari.

The offered vehicle has been converted to a 488 GTE 2019 EVO and specially optimized for long-distance races. It is equipped with five-way adjustable Multimatic dampers and features long-distance headlights, long-distance brakes, air conditioning, a driver helmet cooling system, cockpit lighting, a drinking system from Progressive Motorsport, a carbon fiber clutch, F1-style steel wheel nuts, Motec 4G telemetry, a rearview camera, a lithium battery, and a tire pressure and temperature monitoring system. It also offers a USB data recording and download system. The vehicle being offered here has an impressive history in various racing events, including:

– It achieved 3rd place in GT3 specification at the Fuji Blancpain Asia ProAm in 2018.
– It also secured 3rd place in the Blancpain Asia ProAm 2018 races in Suzuka and Ningbo.
– The vehicle achieved 2nd place in GT3 specification at the ProAm Suzuka 10 Hours in the same year.
– Another significant success was the victory in the GT3 specification at the California 8 Hours in 2019.

Under the GTE specifications, the Ferrari participated in the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2020 but retired in 15th place, just 13 minutes before the end of the race due to technical issues. Through a complete revision of the vehicle, the engine, transmission, drive shafts, and shock absorbers have only covered a mileage of 4,700 KM.

  • The most powerful Maserati ever produced
  • Equipped with its matching-numbers 745 horsepower 6-litre V-12
  • One of only 12 built
  • Minimal usage since new
  • Derived from the marque’s all-conquering GT1 racer
  • The ultimate 21st-century track car

During the 1950s, Maserati was synonymous with motor racing—legends such as Stirling Moss and Juan Manuel Fangio scoring regular international victories for the Italian marque. Almost secondary to this, the company was responsible for some of the most desirable road cars of the era. Fast, sophisticated, and achingly glamorous, Maseratis were assembled in tiny numbers and prized by the glitterati. As time went by, the firm abandoned motorsport to focus solely on these production models but, at the beginning of the 21st century, it returned to its roots. And what a comeback it would make.

Unveiled at the 74th Geneva International Motor Show in 2004, the Tipo M144 or MC12 (for Maserati Corse, 12-cylinder) was the most extreme model yet to leave the Modena factory. Much of the new car’s DNA came from former rival Ferrari’s Enzo hypercar, although substantial improvements were made to the engine, chassis and aerodynamics. Powered by a 5,998 cc, 65-degree, 48-valve, dry-sump V-12, the car developed 630 horsepower at 7,500 rpm, giving a top speed of no less than 330 km/h.

Prioritising function over beauty, the arresting carbonfibre body was designed by Maserati Centro Stile and bore all the hallmarks of a long-distance racer. This wasn’t coincidental, because the 50 road-going MC12s produced between 2004 and 2005 were created with a very singular objective: homologation for the FIA GT Championship.

Under the direction of Giorgio Ascanelli, Maserati’s Reparto Corse developed a competition version that would notch up a slew of international victories, including back-to-back wins in the Spa 24 Hours—the first on the model’s maiden endurance event. A string of constructors’, drivers’, and team championships would well and truly cement the MC12’s reputation as the car to beat. The Trident had returned with a vengeance.

Such was the prowess of the MC12 racer, wealthy enthusiasts seeking the ultimate adrenaline experience clamoured for a chance to own one—and in late 2006 Maserati obliged. Developed from the all-conquering competition model, the MC12 Versione Corse was conceived as a track car but—like its cousin, the Enzo-based Ferrari FXX—was not intended to race. As such, it was unhindered by the FIA rulebook. Dispensing with the intake restrictors mandated by GT1 regulations, for example, the ‘Corsa’ was noticeably more powerful than its championship-winning stablemate: with an astonishing 745 horsepower at 8,000 rpm it was—and remains—the most potent Maserati ever. It was also one of the purest.

Pared back to the minimum, at 1,150 kilograms it was almost 200 kilograms lighter than the Stradale. There was no traction- or stability control, and no ABS, yet, although the performance was truly electrifying—the Corsa could hit 200 km/h from standstill in 6.4 seconds—the car was remarkably benign to handle. With its carbon-ceramic brakes, six-speed Cambiocorsa gearbox, and integral roll cage, the Maserati offered full-fat racing-car dynamics in an astonishingly user-friendly package. In simple terms, it was magnificent.

Offered new to just a dozen carefully selected customers, the MC12 Versione Corse would remain an unattainable dream for the wider public—even those with the deepest of pockets. Among the lucky enthusiasts invited to acquire one of those 12 cars—at a cool €1,000,000 apiece—was the gentleman who took delivery of ‘0008’ in Germany in 2007. Clearly a connoisseur, he added the Maserati to a collection that already included a Ferrari FXX, although during his custodianship the Corsa was used very little. The car is understood to have since been treated to an engine rebuild by former Maserati Corse mechanics in Modena, while maintenance has been carried out by marque specialist Formula Automobile in Denmark.

Confirmed by Archivio Storico Maserati as retaining its matching-numbers engine, and being in its original Arancio (orange) livery with black Sparco seats, this remarkable machine is offered complete with handbooks, fuel rig, spare wheels and tyres. An unmissable opportunity for any serious Maserati collector.

For sale – 2008 Ferrari F430 Challenge

All informations and pictures HERE at Jan B. Lühn

The Ferrari F430 Challenge was the fourth generation of Ferrari Challenge racing cars, following the great successes of the one-make race series of the Ferrari 348, 355 and 360.

The F430 Challenge is based on the Ferrari F430 and was a customer competition car.

It has the standard 430 engine with a 4.3-litre V8 and 490hp, but the chassis was radically revised and the running gear and fittings were upgraded for track use. The chassis is more rigid, lighter and the suspension and brakes were modified for the racing purpose. A semi-automatic gearbox with the paddle shifters, switches the gears on the track. The 430 Challenge was one of the best machines in its class at the time.

One of 142 Ferrari F430 Challenge cars

It was launched in 2006 and built until 2010, in total just 142 left-hand drive cars were produced. In those days the 430 Challenge was used in the Ferrari Challenge Trofeo Pirelli, where retained professionals raced against some sportier clients. 

It is believed that fewer than a half of the F430 Challenge cars survived the four-year season but the survivors are eligible to be raced at events such as the official Ferrari Club Challenge, the Ferrari Club Germany Racing Series as well as the Challenge and GT days, only to mention a few.

Specific history of this car:

We assume that the car had a total of three owners. The car was built in 2008 and passed to the second owner in 2012, for whom a French FFSA passport was issued in 2012. A German DMSB “Wagenpass” (log book) was issued in 2018 for the last owner. In the capable hands of  the last owner, who purchased the car in 2018, the F430 won its class in the Challenge class of the Ferrari Club Germany racing series. After that it was used mainly on trackdays. The car was regularly maintained by the racing team RacingOne, located at the famous Nürburgring in Germany.

In 2022 the car retired from racing and was completely overhauled at Scuderia Gran Tourismo in Munich and remained unused since then. Today the total mileage is aprox. 9.000 kms since new.

•  In February 2022 a new braking system was installed, which included new discs, pads and brake fluid, documented by a bill from Ferrari Scuderia Gran Tourismo over €5.550.

• In April 2022 the car got a new clutch with new sensors. Also the gearbox, the differential and engine got a full service. The fire extinguisher was checked and serviced and the car got a new battery. The total invoice was 8.970 €.

• In October 2022 the drivers seat and the seat belts were replaced, the old driver seat was mounted to the passenger side, it is still valid until this year. Additionally the car got new wheel-arches. Total price – €3.500.

The roll cage got and extension to allow passenger rides. The car has GT3 front- and carbon rearspoiler and comes with a German DMSB log book as well as French FFSA documents. Also included are brand new front grills, a NOS Ferrari Challenge Upper rear bumper grill, brand new carbon fiber side mirrors and a total of 16 wheels with slicks, rain tires and intermediates. The F430 Challenge is ready to go.

An all original and never used pit equipment including wheelnut socket, new Milwaukee power wrench, air bottle and airlines for the air jack system could be negotiated separately.

We are delighted to offer this stunning 2008 ex-AF Corse Ferrari F430 GTC F131 EVO #2626 for sale.  

The Ferrari 430 GTC was introduced in 2006 to replace the 360 GTC and to race in GT2 class in the FIA GT Championship, the American Le Mans Series and the Le Mans 24 Hours. Over the next 5 years, it became Ferrari’s most successful GT racing car of the late 2000s, both in Europe and the USA, taking multiple GT2 Driver’s & Manufacturers’ titles, plus GT2 class victory and podiums at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Developed in partnership by Corse Clienti and Michelotto Automobili, it was derived from the excellent F430 Berlinetta road car, whilst employing the many lessons learned from its racing predecessor, the 360 Modena GTC. The car’s 90 degree 4-litre V8 produced 450 bhp and was mated to a Hewland manual sequential gearbox and proved most reliable. Around 53 cars were produced in total, with just 11 of these being the later and very rare Evoluzione cars.

Right from its debut in 2006 up to its final season of top flight competition, the F430 GTC enjoyed success in every major national and international championship, plus the major endurance races. The model took the FIA GT2 Manufacturers’ Cup in 2006 & 2007, plus 3 consecutive GT2 Drivers’ titles in the same series across 2006-08. Across the Atlantic it took the 2007 ALMS GT2 Manufacturers’ title and perhaps ultimately took GT2 honours at the 2008 24 Hours of Le Mans. Needless to say the car took countless victories and podiums in races across the above series, plus many other national GT Championships.

Chassis 2626 is 1 of just 11 Evo cars built, and enjoyed a lengthy and successful career between 2008 and 2011. Prepared by AF Corse throughout its life, #2626 was raced both as a ‘works’ and a privateer entry in FIA GT and Le Mans Series. In addition, it competed and finished in the 2009 and 2011 24 Hours of Le Mans and the Sebring 12 hours. Many of the best Ferrari GT2 drivers raced 2626 including the likes of Giancarlo Fisichella, Jaime Melo, Gianmaria Bruni and Toni Vilander who were all factory drivers.

#2626’s inaugural season was in the 2008 FIA GT Championship where it raced as an AF Corse entry driven by Maria’s Russo and Luis Perez-Companc. The pairing were consistently successful in this hotly contested championship bringing home 1 win at San Luis, thereby helping AF Corse secure the Teams Championship. In 2009 it only raced in the 12 Hours of Sebring with a splendid 2nd in class and the 24hr of Le Mans where #2626 finished a respectful 6th in class. In 2010, the car had a busy racing schedule in the Le Mans Series (LMS) where it was mostly driven by Jaime Melo and Gianmaria Bruni with 2 wins, at Algarave and Silverstone, and a 2nd place finish in the Spa 1000k race. 

2011 was the final season for #2626 with a repeat of its 2009 schedule of the Sebring 12 hours and Le Mans 24 hours. At Sebring, Pierre Kaffer, Giancarlo Fisichella and Gianmaria Bruni qualified 1st in class and finished 5th. At the Le mans 24hr, #2626 was entered in the GTE Am-class where Nicolas Marroc, Jean-Marc Menahem and Manual Rodrigues finished just outside the podium with a 4th in-class. The car’s impressive career saw it finish in the top 3 in class on 5 occasions with 3 victories and 2 podiums. In its life #2626 raced at many of the iconic circuits including Sebring, Le Mans, Spa-Francorchamps, Silverstone, Monza, Portimao and Paul Ricard. The full race history of chassis 2626 is listed in the History section below.

After it was retired from competition, AF Corse restored #2626, obtaining the coveted ‘Red Book’ Classiche certification in the process. The engine has been rebuild by Michelotto in 2019, the gearbox was rebuild in 2022 and both have less than 3000km running time (8000km life). The car is in stunning condition and comes with 2 sets of spare wheels, 1 splitter, 1 front bumper, exhaust silencer, LeMans gear-ratios and miscellaneous running spares. All date-related items such as the fuel cell, seat, belts and crack testing are current so that is in 100% race-ready condition with nothing further to spend. Evidence of its capabilities was given when #2626 was reunited with factory driver Toni Vilander at the Le Mans Classic 2023 ERL race where, despite stiff competition, it convincingly won its GT2C-class. 

This is a rare opportunity to acquire a works supported Ferrari 430 GTC EVO “Wide Body” with impressive race history which would sit proudly in any discerning Ferrari collection while also being eligible to race in Peter Auto’s Endurance Racing Legends, Masters Endurance Legends and Ferrari‘s Club Competizione GT program where it would be a welcome and competitive entry.
