I Present to you the ONLY manual Ferrari 430 Scuderia… in the world…

This company has done the unimaginable

2y ago

The Ferrari 430 Scuderia is known for being one of the most visceral driving experiences you can get from a road car. From the noise to the engine. Very little else comes close. The one thing that Ferrari and driving purists aren’t too keen on however is the fact that it never came with a manual gearbox.

Considering Ferrari don’t make a manual supercar anymore, this claimed one of one manual 430 Scuderia may just be your golden ticket to freedom.

A company called European Auto Group (EAG) have built exactly this and claim it is the only one in existence. I think they may be right.

Previously I have seen someone put a manual in a Porsche 991 GT3RS and thought that was pretty crazy, but this takes it to another level. Not only did EAG put a manual in here but they had to make one as Ferrari never made one in the first place.

This was definitely no walk in the park. EAG had to source a wiring harness and buy the last clutch pedal from Ferrari, a big job if you ask me. They also added a radio (as the Scuderia didn’t come with one) and a whopping $50,000 worth of Carbon Fibre upgrades. The only thing which isn’t as authentic is that there are two holes on either side of the steering column where the paddle shifters used to sit. Apart from that its perfect!

This car is now up for sale for an astonishing $389,900 and has done 11,800 miles which may sound like a lot but it is one of only…well.. one in the world! The average Scud sells for around $100,000 so this is a big step up.

Is this the coolest Ferrari build you have ever seen?

  • I love it, the idea is so simple yet "life changing" when driving a car of that era and performance.

    I personnally dream of a Maserati Quattroporte S/GTS fitted with a Manual Transmission.

    Can you imagine that engine tone coupled with heel & toe ?! 😮

    Would be amazing !!

  • Thanks for the FEATURE DriveTribe!! Just a couple of notes... 1, This IS the only Scuderia in the world that has a six speed manual, we've done extensive research. 2, there are no holes where the flappy paddles used to be. And 3, the most important part about this car is the fact that its a conversion, not a swap. No, we did not use an F430 transmission and stuck it in the Scud, Yes it still uses the origunal Superfast 2 transmission that was unique only to the Scuderia.
