Fuel economy

A more stringent standard for fuel economy (WLTP) was introduced from September 2017, and this model was not required to undergo that test. Its fuel economy measured under the previous test system was 15 - 18 mpg. However these figures are less likely to be achievable in real world driving and so should never be compared to another car's mpg which was measured under the newer, more realistic WLTP system.

Any way you look at it, running an F430 is going to cost a fortune. Group 20 insurance, single-digit fuel economy if you drive it hard and serious maintenance costs will see to that. Depreciation is slow but only for low mileage cars: enjoy it too much and you can expect to be crippled both when the time comes to sell and at service time too. The F430 needs a minor service every 6250 miles and another at 12500.

But there is a network of established independent specialists that offer lower labour rates to ease the pain.

The F430 is a high-emission car, although it's to be expected when delivering this kind of performance. With an average of 420g/km CO2 across the line-up, its emissions are extremely high, and the range is very thirsty, averaging 15mpg.

Older Ferraris had a reputation for unreliability but the company has worked hard to improve the quality of its cars in recent years with good results.
