The last of a dying breed.
Automatic transmissions might be able to shift faster than manuals these days, but nothing is more enjoyable to drive than a sports car with a gated shifter. If you're in the market for a rare performance car that is as fun to drive as it is to show off, then this 2007 Ferrari F430 Spider being sold by GT Motor Cars is exactly what you need.
The amazing condition of this car shows how well it's been kept over the years with a beautiful silver paint job complemented by the bright red leather interior. The highlight of the interior, though, is that polished shifter and shifter gate. This gated manual shifter definitely helps the F430 feel like a racecar, but it's the high-revving 4.3-liter V8 that makes this car sound and drive like a Ferrari.
While some Ferraris get passed around from collection to collection, this F430 Spider is a true one-owner car with just 2,721 miles on the odometer. Whoever buys this car is essentially buying a brand new Ferrari as this F430 Spider comes with everything it had from the factory including the books, tools and factory cover and even the original window sticker and the car's complete service history. It's going to be hard to find a 2007 Ferrari F430 Spider with a gated shifter in better condition than this one.
