2008 Ferrari F430 GTC EVO One of only 24 F430 GTC's built For Sale

2008 Ferrari F430 GTC 4th at the Sebring 12 hours and part of two car squad from Tafel Racing, the leading Ferrari team in the 2008 ALMS achieving 2nd overall. One of only 24 F430 GTCs built 4th at 2008 Sebring 12 Hours Multiple ALMS top-10 finishes Ex-Allan Simonsen, Pierre Ehret, Jim Tafel & Alex Figge Eligible for Global Endurance Legends and Masters Endurance Legends Exclusively eligible for Ferrari Challenge & GT Days Significant contributor to Tafel Racing’s 2nd place in the 2008 ALMS Championship Specified new with data acquisition system, A/C and much more Extensive package of spares Exceptionally rare and with fantastic provenance & original condition, this is a bona fide modern-classic Ferrari sports racing car. With the new F430 GTC in 2006 came not only Frank Stephenson’s stunning and fresh design, but a whole raft of improvements over the outgoing 360 GTC. With research carried out by Ferrari’s Gestione Sportiva F1 Racing Division and the build & preparations entrusted to Michelotto, the Scuderia’s age-old partner in crime, the F430 GTC was a genuine leap forwards rather than just a mere evolution. Built to the FIA’s GT2 specifications, the F430 was tantalisingly eligible for a number of series around the world and would go on to dominate its class. An F430 GTC won its inaugural American Le Mans Series Championship in 2006 and achieved the holy trinity in 2007, winning the GT2 Championship in the FIA GT, Le Mans Series and the ALMS for the second time. For 2008 Pierre Ehret, a German-born businessman and gentleman driver, did not want to miss out and ordered two F430 GTCs. On 16th January 2008 Ferrari invoiced Ehret for the car you see here, chassis F131EVOGTC 2610, and he left nothing to chance when specifying his new race car. On top of the €435,000 base price, over €30,000 was spent on optional extras, including a data acquisition system, water and engine oil quick refilling equipment, air conditioning, 24-hour race lights, a carbon clutch and an increased front brake cooling system. Prepared and run by Tafel Racing the pair of F430 GTCs arrived at Sebring in March for the season opener, which also happened to be the most important race of the year: the legendary 12-Hour race. Car owner Pierre Ehret shared the driving of No.73 with team owner Jim Tafel and the hugely talented Allan Simonsen, a Danish driver who would go on to be an Aston Martin Works driver, compete at Le Mans seven times and win the Asian Le Mans GT2 Championship in 2009. After the infamously gruelling round-the-clock race was run, No.73 came home 4th in class; a sterling effort which saw it finish ahead of its sister Ferrari and just 3 laps shy of that final podium position. From Sebring, No.73 would see out the remainder of its ALMS championship with both staggering consistency and style. Of the nine races it contested, at some of North America’s most prestigious circuits like Road Atlanta and Laguna Seca, No.73 finished in the top 10 an amazing eight times – just one retirement in an otherwise outstanding season. As a result of No.73’s reliability to score points, Tafel Racing finished 2nd overall in the GT2 class of the 2008 American Le Mans Series Championship; agonisingly just 16 points behind the Flying Lizard team’s 911 RSR, but a whopping 36 points clear of the works-backed Risi Competizione F430 GTC. The Ferrari was retired and sold after just the one season in the ALMS, preserving it immaculately for the future, and it was this car’s history and incredible original condition that caught the eye of the previous owner. It was during this ownership that the Ferrari returned to the track to compete in a select few rounds of the 2012 Pirelli World Challenge series. With David Welch at the helm, the then four year old Ferrari achieved three further top 10 finishes against some much more advanced machinery. Recently returned to its 2008 Sebring 12 Hours livery the Ferrari remains highly original throughout and is now available for sale, accompanied by a large number of spares. It’s scarcely believable that this Ferrari debuted some 12 years ago, but in that time it has become eligible for some of the most exciting events where entries are highly sought after – specifically both the Global and Masters Endurance Legends series, and the Ferrari Challenge & GT Days. We’ve been fortunate enough to run this car at a private track day and can confirm that it would now be eligible for the greatest events; we just wish we had the time to race it ourselves. 2008 American Le Mans Series Results DATE: 15th March 2008 RACE: Mobil 1 12 Hours of Sebring DRIVERS: Allan Simonsen/ Pierre Ehret/ Jim Tafel CAR NO: 73 RESULT (GT2): 4th DATE: 18th May 2008 RACE: Larry H.
