The Ferrari 206
The Ferrari F430 hit the roads in 2004, assembled in Maranello, Italy. It was identified by many as the purest driver's car, famous for its roaring V8 engine and beautifully sculpted aesthetic. The F430 was designed by Frank Stephenson in collaboration with Pininfarina as the successor to the Ferrari 360. Every inch of the Ferrari F430 was inspired by the engineering research carried out at Ferrari's Gestione Sportiva F1 Racing Division.
In the mid-noughties, Ferrari dominated the Formula 1 scene with an unprecedented six back-to-back constructor's titles. Ferrari's wealth of formula one experience was applied to the F430's engine, improving everything from its weight, performance and size. Throughout the F430's four-year production run, it has thrilled the drivers behind its wheel and adorned the walls of many who dreamed of owning one. It's fair to say that the F430 became an icon within the history and evolution of the Ferrari brand.
It's 4.3 Litre V8 can reach 0 to 62 mph in 4.0 seconds and hit a top speed of 196mph, so it's no slouch. In fact, Jeremy Clarkson stated that the F430 made an Aston Martin DB9 and a Porsche 911 Turbo feel like a canal boat!
At Eurospares, we've been fortunate enough to work with all types of F430 variants, connecting with each F430's anatomy throughout the breaking process and supporting customers that own F430's with the parts they need to retain their passion for driving.
We've worked across the entire Ferrari F430 model family from the Spider, the Ferrari F430 Scuderia (the successor to the 360 Challenge Stradale) to even the incredibly rare Ferrari F430 Scuderia Spider 16M. Here's a quick fun fact about the Scuderia Spider 16M. It was built to commemorate Ferrari's 16th victory in the Formula 1 Constructor's World Championship in 2008.

There's a real art to breaking cars, and the process allows us to get up close and personal with every supercar that enters the Eurospares workshop. Stripping a used yet functional part allows us to appreciate the artistry within each part's form and function. The team have always mentioned how much they love the etched F430 name on the Testarossa-styled driver side mirror, which is unique to the F430 (being the only Ferrari to have this design feature), and yes, we have it in stock.
We stock all the parts for the F430, from the innovative selector steering wheel, F1 Gearbox and a flat-plane crankshaft. These are just some of the parts that made the F430 a genuinely unique piece of kit. You'll also find various bits of carbon interior engine parts from the F430 eagerly awaiting to be purchased from the Eurospares warehouse.
The F430 still stands the test of time, and with the help of replacement parts from Eurospares, it will be around for a very, very long time. Its legacy paved the way for its successor, the Ferrari 458, unveiled on 28th July 2009 through to the latest instalments from the prancing horse like the F8 Tributo and the SF90.
At Eurospares, our passion for parts and vast stock levels places us in the very fortunate position of ensuring supercar owners maintain their vehicles' well-being.
