Developed by Schumacher: 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia – SOLD!

Dec 2021 | Craigslist ClassiFINDS, Free For All Friday

January 7, 2022 Update – We confirmed the seller of this “Classifind” deleted their listing, so we’re now able to call this one “SOLD!” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call us directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.

It seems these days the supercar wars have gotten so accustomed to bringing ridiculous firepower to the schoolyard that exotics just a few years past their introduction seem very ho-hum. This 2009 Ferrari 430 Scuderia – a higher-performance version of the already fast F430 – is a great example of a stunning sports car that we almost take for granted it even exists. This Ferrari was originally listed in December 2021 on Craigslist in Action, Massachusetts with extensive servicing and numerous extras for $228,990. Comparing this price against the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms this private seller has his Scuderia priced above the “Concours” price of $227,000, and well north of the “Excellent” price of $207,000.

The F430 was already a stunning achievement when Ferrari introduced the Scuderia, benefitting from the influence of none other than Michael Schumacher, who was supposedly involved in its development. The car came with 483 horsepower from the factory, along with an F1 automated manual transmission. Yes, gone were the days of the familiar Ferrari gated manual shifter, but the rapid-fire shifting abilities of the F1 transmission quickly put to rest any concerns that the 430 was any less of a Ferrari without three pedals. If the F430 was a supercar in every sense of the word, the Scuderia grabbed it by the scruff of its neck and told it to do better, which is exactly what happened as Ferrari found an additional twenty horsepower to give the Scuderia a total output of 503 horsepower.

The Car & Driver YouTube Channel features this review of the 2009 Scuderia 430 when new:

The seller has racked up just over 23,000 miles, which is actually fairly high for any generation Ferrari. It’s great to see that it was driven, and the list of recent maintenance suggests nothing was overlooked. The seller points out that he’ll include the desirable  S-Line/Fabspeed exhaust for the full asking price, or $224,900 with the factory exhaust re-installed. The typically faulty Scud headers were replaced under warranty, and the seller also mentions that the Scuderia will come recently serviced – but doesn’t elaborate as to what that entailed. No matter what the service covered, we’re certain it was pricey, and the records are available through the local Ferrari dealer. The Scuderia doesn’t come up for sale often, and this one looks as nice as the seller claims it to be.

Here’s the seller’s description:

“Clean Title. Clean Carfax. 3-owner / 23,250 miles. Rosso Corsa (red) over Tessuto (black alcantara, “BAT1” configuration). 2 keys and ALL original books/manuals, & equipment, see photos.

Excellent condition. 88% clutch life read on 11/13/21. Typical faulty Scud headers replaced under Ferrari warranty. Full service just done. PPI report available for serious buyers.
