Here at Car-Link in Bournemouth, we’ve recently taken delivery of a car that simply takes your breath away. This is a bold statement, considering our regular selection of superb used prestige and classic cars. However, when we mention that it’s a metallic two-door Nero Black Ferrari 458, single-owner registered in 2013 and yet with a mere 11,000 miles on the clock, you'll surely appreciate our excitement.
What of Michael Schumacher? Well, prior to its launch at the 2009 Frankfurt Motor Show, he offered key input into the design of the interior, and as a former Ferrari F1 driver, he certainly knows what to aim for. As you settle behind the wheel, you'll understand his contribution to an almost racing car steering wheel configuration, including so many of the controls. The pair of seats? Racing style in black leather and carbon fibre, as they surely should be.
On the move, you'll instantly appreciate why this truly magnificent vehicle has been said to be Ferrari’s sportiest V8 engined model, with 562BHP at your immediate command. Offering 0-60 in 3.2 seconds, it takes longer to read this than perform it. Of course, you'll find so much else to enjoy, from the satnav to an iPod installation, plus a premium hi-fi system, both front and rear parking sensors, advanced front lighting system, Scuderia Ferrari Shields, and 20 chromed shadow wheel rim. With the only owner having added more than £18K of options to their original purchase, we could go on. However, the phrase “has to be seen to be believed” more or less covers it.
More prosaically, but of further great added value, it comes with the balance of the 7-year Ferrari Service Pack and full service history, so do ask us about the warranty details. With the Grand National still fresh in the memory, this is an example of what the word “thoroughbred” actually means! Should you be looking to part-exchange, or require finance to complete the purchase, we are happy to help with both.
Viewing, as you’d expect, is by appointment only. As Ferraris are built for speed we certainly don’t expect this one to stay here with us at Car-Link for long. Therefore we recommend a call to 01202 48 11 99 right now as this legendary black steed is impatient to be exercised!
