The Ferrari F430 Spider was unveiled at the 2005 Geneva Motor Show. The F430 convertible featured a number of technical features which hinted to the car's F1 breeding. Starting with the innovative electronic differential (E-diff) - first developed by the racing division for the Scuderia’s all-conquering F1 cars – which improves traction and roadholding under all conditions. The Spider also features the steering wheel-mounted rotary switch, known to the Scuderia’s drivers as the ‘manettino’, which allows the car’s set-up to be adjusted easily and quickly.

Designed by Ferrari's preferred styling house, Pininfarina, the F430 Spider’s sinuous lines were fine-tuned using state-of-the-art computer aerodynamics simulation programmes usually employed exclusively by the F1 team.

The Ferrari F430 Spider boasts a compact, fully automatic electric hood that allows the engine to be seen in all its glory at all times and which, once lowered, takes up relatively little space, despite the central-rear engine layout.
