A Ferrari F430 coupe once owned by Donald Trump, now the POTUS, is slated to go under the hammer at an Auctions America event on April 1, 2017. Estimated to go for $250,000-$350,000 (INR 1,67,45,000 – INR 2,34,43,000), the Italian super-car is accompanied by service records, all the original books, manuals, tool kit, car cover with bag, and so on.
This particular Ferrari F430 was bought by Donald Trump back in 2007. It was with him until 2011, during which it was driven for 3,862 km, after which it was sold off to the current vendor. Now, with less than 10,000 km on the clock, this Rosso Corsa coloured F430 with a beige leather interior will go down in history as the first super-car to be owned by an US President.
The Ferrari F430 came out in 2004, and was in production until 2009. It was the first Ferrari to feature the brand’s E-Diff (electronic differential) that was restricted to only F1 cars back in the day, and the steering wheel mounted manettino switch. Shove came from a 4,308 cc V8 engine good for 490HP and 465Nm of maximum twist, mated to either a manual or a F1 gearbox with shift paddles.
