Developed from the F430 road version, the F430 GTC is a racing car designed for the international GT2 class competition. It also competes at the 24 hours of Le Mans event. When the Ferrari 360 GTC proved to be no longer competitive in the GT2 class, Ferrari replaced it with the more powerful F430 GTC to compete with Porsche. In 2007, Ferrari, with its F430 GTC, won the GT2 Manufacturers’ Cup with a clean sweep of all the GT championship in 2007. It also scored a class win at the 2007 12 Hours of Sebring.

At the FIA GT2 race, cars must meet a specific minimal weight requirement and use an engine restrictor that depends on the engine displacement. Thus a special 4.0 liter V8 engine derived from the production 4.3 liter unit was mounted on the F430 GTC. The dry weight is listed at 1.100 kg, still the minimum allowed, but the new GTC benefits from several features developed for the latest F1 and Challenge racing cars.

In the numerous titles F430 GTC won in its class, the most famous are: Champion of ALMS, 2006 and 2007; Champion of FIA GT, 2006, 2007 and 2008; 24 hours of Le Mans, 2008 and 2009; 12 Hours of Sebring, 2007 and 2009.

It is nearly impossible to miss a model that has so exceptionally marked Ferrari’s history!
