The Challenge version of the Ferrari F430 was a ‘customer-competition’ car featuring the standard 430 engine (4.3-litre V8 with 490 bhp), but with a radically revised chassis, running gear and fittings for track use. More rigid, lighter and with modified suspension and brakes, the F430 Challenge was one of the best machines in its class at the time, while also bearing a prestigious name.
Delivered new in Italy, the car we are offering was subsequently sold to a Luxembourg-based owner, before recently becoming part of a Finnish collection. It was used mainly on circuit days and once took part in the Ferrari Challenge. At some point repainted in blue, it was retired from racing in 2010 and put into storage, until its purchase by its current Finnish owner in 2022. He decided to return the car to its original Rosso Corsa colour, and entrusted it to a Ferrari dealer for a complete overhaul in 2023. On this occasion, the clutch showed wear of around 60%.
The F430 Challenge saloon, which now boasts an attractive overall appearance and L/XL seating, will soon be back on the racetrack, providing its future owner with the exhilarating sensations that it was designed to deliver.
