This 2006 Ferrari F430 Is the Queen of Naturally Aspirated Thrills
The Ferrari F430 was unveiled at the 2004 Paris Motor Show as a successor to the Ferrari 360. It came with a whole lot of changes compared to its predecessor, especially in the aerodynamic efficiency department. The F430 now generated a greater downforce, thus instilling more confidence at higher speeds. The supercar was in production for about five years from 2004 to 2009 wherein Ferrari make around 15,000 examples of it. Not exactly a rare breed, but the F430 came with a naturally aspirated V-8 and a lot of heritage-inspired elements that make it a looker even to this day.
A 2006 example finished in the Rosso Corsa red shade with 20,000 miles on the odo has revisited the Bring-a-Trailer auction and here’s your chance to grab the beauty.

Looking Back: Ferrari Employees Aren’t Allowed To Buy Brand-New Ferraris
Employees of Ferrari typically aren’t allowed to buy their own brand-new Ferraris. The only exception? Formula One drivers, and even they have to pay the full freight costs for their cars. That’s the gospel according to Chief Marketing and Commercial Officer Enrico Galliera, who is often referred to within Maranello as the notorious “Dr. No.”
Galliera’s job with Ferrari is a complicated one that involves numerous roles. But what he’s famously known for is his distinction of being the man who decides which person deserves to own a limited-edition Ferrari. In his conversation with Drive, Galliera explained that certain aspects of his job are made difficult by the fact that not everybody can own a Ferrari model even if these people deserve it. “We have much higher demand than the availability,” he explained. “What we do is identify criteria that is rewarding good customers. The limited edition cars we consider a gift to our best customers." Indeed, these so-called “gifts” come in the form of low-volume supercars that Ferrari clients are more than likely to fight for. The most recent example is the LaFerrari Aperta, the convertible version of the LaFerrari hypercar. Galliera said the most difficult part of is job is rejecting established Ferrari customers, some of whom have been loyal fans of the brand. That tells you how strict Galliera and Ferrari are considering that Lee already has more than a dozen Ferraris to his name, including four new ones he ordered just to improve his rating with the company.

A Ferrari F8 Tributo Has to Cheat to Beat Ken Block’s Hoonicorn
Ferrari introduced the 812 Superfast in 2017, but its front-engined grand tourer is actually much older than that. Essentially a facelifted version of the F12berlinetta, the design and underpinnings of the current V-12 grand tourer go back to 2012. This makes it eight years old as of 2020, two years more than its predecessor, the 599. In short, it’s time for a full redesign, but it seems Ferrari is not in a hurry to deliver one. But the CascoRosso, a futuristic rendering of a front-engined Ferrari grand tourer, seems like the perfect replacement.
