Donald Trump Ferrari F430 For Sale And You Have To Hurry Up To Catch It
Like it or not, Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States. And it seems this is the first president with a keen taste for cars. Thanks to his massive wealth he had a chance to own some of the best cars in the world. And some of them were immigrants actually. Apart from that cool purpose-built Cadillac Limo, Donald Trump owned the Diablo and lately the Ferrari F430. And now, that red Italian prancing horse is for sale.
Auctions America will set it for sale from 01 April. We do know the car covered only 6,000 miles and comes loaded with all the imaginable stuff Ferrari offered at the time. Donald Trump bought the car back in 2007 but sold it in 2011. So, while Trump was its original owner, all the proceedings will go to its current owner.
This was, actually quite a smart move by the owner who wanted to cash in on the popularity Trump acquired after becoming the president.
As it turns out, Long Island Ferrari and Maserati center have serviced the car the whole time. This also gives it a lot of credibility as one can look back through the history of the car. No one knows what price will it fetch, but Auctions America officials reported it’ll probably fetch a price of $250,000 to $350,000. Considering that used units sell for $120,000 or so, this is actually quite a catch.
As a refresher, we’ll just say that the Ferrari F430, powered by a 4.3 liter V8 with 497hp, can speed up to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and top 196 mph. A supercar of the time for sure.
