About the Ferrari F430 Art Car
In 2006, the car ran in the Ferrari Challenge Europe Championship and won. After 2007, the car was retired and stored.
In 2013, the vehicle was brought to the United States with ANSA Motorcars. The vehicle has been brought out of retirement for this exclusive event.
It has been extensively modified by Ferrari to boost its on circuit performance with extensive weight reduction and suspension changes. Just like in previous Ferrari Challenge cars the engine has largely remained the same as on the production road cars except for some enhanced breathing by means of a racing exhaust system and some engine management tweaks and fine blueprinting.
Furthermore the body styling has received very few styling changes with the Formula One inspired single central nut (slick shod) BBS wheels hiding enormous carbon brakes.
