Known History

 

This car is not currently at Fantasy Junction.

 

2009 Specification Ferrari F430GT GT2

s/n F131EVOGTC*2608*

Hankook Livery with Silver Interior

 

While Ferrari’s 430 Challenge is essentially a lightened and tuned street variant of the car, the 430 GT2 is quite a different animal from the Challenge. The GT2 is a comprehensively prepared race car that competes in the world’s most prestigious events, including the FIA GT Championship, Le Mans, and American Le Mans Series. It is Ferrari’s top of the line 430-based race car, being lighter, more fully developed, and faster than the Challenge and the GT3. Consequently, it is also the most expensive, and the 2009 variant of the car is a further refined version of the 2008 car. If the car is being used in the SCCA or NASA events, more club-level events, the car could be tuned so that running the car will not make it much more expensive than running a Challenge car.

 

Like all genuine 430 GT2’s, this is a Michelotto-built car. This is a one-owner car that was invoiced by Michelotto to its original owner on the 16th of January 2008. In addition to the 435,000 euros for the car itself, this car has over 30,000 euros of options, including data acquisition system sensors, water and oil quick refilling system, air conditioning system, endurance racing refueling lights, carbon clutch, and supplemental brake cooling system. The car was campaigned in the 2008 American Le Mans Series by Tafel Racing, during which time it scored no less than four race wins en route to second in the GT2 team championship standings. Following the 2008 ALMS championship season, the car was supplied to Franbacher Racing and fully updated for the 2009 European Le Mans Series including the prestigious 24 Hours du Mans. At the tail end of the 2009 season s/n 2608 won the only Asian Le Mans Series race it entered at Okayama, Japan.

The car is currently in very nice condition, having been cared for in a no-expense spared fashion throughout its professional racing career. The paint is in fine condition and the car displays very good race cosmetics throughout. The headlamps are in excellent condition. The windscreen does show some road rash, but no significant damage. The wheels are excellent, as is the interior. The engine works properly, but has not been rebuilt. The car was successfully tested in November of 2009 at Sears Point.

 

Infinitely more capable and collectable than 430 Challenge cars, the F430 GT2 is the ultimate F430 race car. This particular car was a capably and professionally run example, and boasts fantastic period racing history. The car has never been seriously damaged, and is eligible in its current configuration for professional racing in the United States, Europe, as well as Asia. It represents the ideal weapon for the Ferrari enthusiast looking to go racing professionally, or to add to his collection of historically significant racecars.
