It's become clear that Ferrari will probably never make another three-pedal car again. As that fact starts to set in, existing manual Ferraris have been slowly creeping up in price compared to their automatic counterparts. This silver 2006 F430 is equipped with a gated six-speed, and looks to be in great condition. You should buy it before prices skyrocket.
Welcome to You Must Buy, our daily look at the cars you really should be buying instead of that boring commuter sedan.
Aside from the pedal count, I think the best thing about this Ferrari is the color. Some people may feel differently, but silver really does the F430's design justice, and it's a whole lot more interesting than red. Plus, it stands out a lot less, meaning you can enjoy your Ferrari without everyone looking at you and taking pictures. The body panels look to be in great condition, thanks in part to a clear paint protection film that's been installed. The interior sports some cool Daytona-style seats with contrasting white inserts. The only imperfection is some wear on the driver's side left bolster.
According to , the car has spent its whole life in California, with just two owners from new. Upgrades include a sports exhaust system and a carbon fiber Challenge-style rear grille. The engine bay was signed by Mario Andretti, and the seller has the picture to prove it, which is cool. The 4.3-liter quad-cam flat-plane crank V8 made 490 horsepower from the factory, and looks great nestled inside the bay behind the driver.
If you're curious about service history, don't worry—there are records included all the way back from when the car was new. The car currently sitting at a high bid of $98,000 with four days remaining left to bid. .
