A damaged example of the Ferrari F430 Spider has been spotted recently in Georgia, at a salvage yard.
While the Ferrari 458 remains one of the most crashed exotic rides these past few month, we have to mention its predecessor too, the F430, in this article. The model in question, which is actually in its convertible version, has been spotted looking like this in Austell, Georgia. According to the guys from Wrecked Exotics, the vehicle has been spotted at a salvage yard and it seems to have only cosmetic damage but chances are the insurance didn’t cover the crash and this is probably why the supercar has been left here. If you happen to know more about the topic, please feel free to share.
The Ferrari F430 has been produced between 2004 and 2009 and it was offered in two body styles, the coupe (F430) and the roadster (F430 Spider). Both of them had a rear mid-engine and rear-wheel drive layout and power came from a 4.3 liter V8 naturally aspirated unit, rated at 491 HP (366 kW) and 465 Nm (343 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), the F430 needs 3.7 seconds and top speed stands at 315 km/h (196 mph). The supercar stands at 4,511 mm long, 1,923 mm wide and 1,234 mm tall, weighing in 1,450 kg. The F430 has been replaced back in 2009 by the 458 and this left the assembly line recently in order to make room for its successor, the 488 GTB.
