This Ferrari F430 Challenge car is fitted with SBR’s Aero kit comprising deep front bumper with improved cooling, carbon front splitter and rear wing. Other modifications over original challenge spec are, adjustable Ohlin dampers, uprated Engine ECU’s, improved gearshift with TCU, passenger seat, repackable race exhaust system and steel brake conversion. SBR race team maintained with no expense spared since 2009, this car was campaigned for several years with many podium finishes in Britcar, GT Cup and Ferrari Pirelli Open. A new engine was fitted 2011 and only raced 4 times after that and has had only covered 2100Km. In 2016 the car was semi-retired to the odd track day, and has been used only sparingly since.

Based on the highly successful road-going model, the F430 Challenge, launched in 2007 is sharpened and refined for the track. It uses the same 4.3-litre, 483bhp, mid-mounted V8 unit, with relatively minor changes to the exhaust system intake and engine management. The Challenge also retains the same, six-speed, automated manual paddle-shift gearbox, but Formula One technology allowed the shift speed to be increased significantly. Inside, all non-essential items are removed to reduce weight including trim, sound deadening and carpets. A fixed-back carbon-fiber bucket seat is fitted, together with race harness and an Alcantara-clad steering wheel to replace the stock airbag-equipped item and it includes buttons to communicate with the pits and to access the digital display. A comprehensive roll-cage provides protection and additional rigidity.

Outside, the changes are less pronounced but dynamically effective with the most notable difference being the centre-lock wheels, subtle bodywork changes and lowered ride height. All of the glass was replaced with lightweight Lexan items.  Note this car has a further evolution utilizing the FF Corse kit

Production of the F430 Challenge was limited to 142 cars. This multiple-championship winning example benefits from upgraded suspension and brakes, along with improvements to the bodywork, making it a fantastic investment that’s ready to be enjoyed to the full on track. An impeccably maintained vehicle that is easy to drive, but can also deliver serious thrills when pushed. This superb car is ready to race, and comes with 2 x sets of wheels.

If you love track days but you are nervous about using your valuable supercar or exotic, then this is an ideal investment for you. Easy to drive and blisteringly quick when you want to push hard!
