AutoHunter Spotlight: 2008 Ferrari 430 Scuderia

Low mileage sports car powered by a 503-horsepower engine


Up for auction on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is a 2008 Ferrari 430 Scuderia, a mid-engine exotic that’s been driven just 27,718 miles since new.

According to the seller, this Scuderia was assembled in Modena, Italy, and originally sold in Menlo Park, California, by Ferrari Silicon Valley. The car was relocated to Colorado in 2012 but returned to California just two years later.

“The 430 Scuderia two-door supercar was introduced as a successor to the 360 Challenge Stradale, first shown at the 2007 Frankfurt Auto Show as a track-focused variant of the F430,” AutoHunter notes in the Ferrari’s listing. “The chassis was engineered to weigh about 200 pounds lighter than its counterpart by using a carbon fiber rear diffuser, titanium suspension components, a Lexan rear window, a different front valance, and additional weight-savings components.”

This example is finished in Grigio Medio paint with dual black-outlined accent stripes on the upper panels. Other exterior features include Xenon headlights, mesh bumper inserts, and a tuned free-flow exhaust system with dual outlets over the rear diffuser.

It rides on black-finished 19-inch wheels wrapped in Michelin 235/35 tires up front and with 285/35 rubber in the rear. Stopping power comes from 4-wheel carbon ceramic cross-drilled disc brakes with yellow-finished calipers.

The interior houses carbon-fiber bucket seats upholstered in two-tone neutral-colored Bata and Alcantara upholstery, carbon fiber accents throughout and a newer Alpine AM/FM/CD audio system.

Power comes from a mid-mounted, 503-horsepower 4.3-liter quad-cam V8 equipped with dry sump lubrication, an 11:9:1 compression ratio, and a flat-plane crankshaft. The engine is linked to a 6-speed F1 automated-manual gearbox and an electronically controlled limited-slip differential.
