Trump's Absolutely Great Ferrari F430 F1 Is Heading To Auction


It's going to be terrific. Believe me.

People with money like to buy expensive things, like Ferraris and personal limousines, and Donald Trump, at least before he became president, had a thing for fast cars. We honestly never knew this until we learned that his 2007 Ferrari F430 F1 Coupe, which he bought new, is heading to auction on April 1st. No, we don’t think this is an April Fool’s joke. Auctions America has details about the Corsa Red F430 in question, which is set to bring in an estimated $250,000 to $350,000.

Power, of course, comes from a naturally aspirated 4.3-liter V8 with 490 hp, with power going to the rear wheels through a six-speed F1 paddle-shift transmission. There’s less than 6,000 miles on the clock and features Daytona-style seats, Scuderia fender crests, yellow gauges with carbon dash insert, and a radio with a six-disc CD changer. Trump bought and titled the F430 as a personal vehicle, and the sale includes a proven copy of that title, which has Trump’s Trump Tower, New York address and his "Yuge!" signature. The original books, manuals, took kit, and car cover are also included.

Trump owned the car for just over four years, at which time only 2,400 miles were put on. In 2011 its second owner – who’s smart enough to cash in given the car’s first owner – bought it and has properly maintained it ever since. All proceeds will go to the victims of the "Bowling Green massacre." Photos courtesy of Auctions America.
