ABOUT THIS FERRARI F430 CHALLENGE CAR
Another "One of a Kind" collaboration with Ansa Motorcars bring to you this 2007 Ferrari F430 Challenge ART-Car . This Ferrari F430 Challenge car won the 2007 Ferrari Challenge World Champion Finale at Mugello, Italy. In 2006, the car ran in the Ferrari Challenge Europe Championship and won. After 2007, the car was retired and stored. In 2013, the vehicle was brought to the United States with ANSA Motorcars. The vehicle has been brought out of retirement for this exclusive event. It has been extensively modified by Ferrari to boost its on circuit performance with extensive weight reduction and suspension changes. Just like in previous Ferrari Challenge cars the engine has largely remained the same as on the production road cars except for some enhanced breathing by means of a racing exhaust system and some engine management tweaks and fine blueprinting. Furthermore the body styling has received very few styling changes with the Formula One inspired single central nut (slick shod) BBS wheels hiding enormous carbon brakes. This stallion was brought to Art Basel Miami 2015 along with 2 others. This ART-Car was painted by artist Duval Carrie whose works can be found in many private collections worldwide and also in important museums and institutions. Not only is this an Original one off artist proof with huge Collector Value, the proceeds from each car is donated to charity. If you Love Art ,Love Cars, Love Ferrari, Love Racing, you are philanthropic and want something Collectible and Unique that no one else in the world has, could have, or ever will have ..... THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY FOR YOU..!!!!!!!!
NOTE: We took three (3) F430 Challenge cars to Art Basel Miami 2015 each painted by a different Artist and they are available as a Collection as well.
The F430 Challenge is a non-road legal variant of the road-going Ferrari F430, it has been extensively modified by Ferrari to boost its on circuit performance with extensive weight reduction and suspension changes. Just like in previous Ferrari Challenge cars the engine has largely remained the same as on the production road cars except for some enhanced breathing by means of a racing exhaust system and some engine management tweaks and fine blueprinting. Furthermore the body styling has received very few styling changes with the Formula One inspired single central nut (slick shod) BBS wheels hiding enormous carbon brakes.
Edouard Duval-Carri (born 1954) Port-au-Prince, Haiti. His family emigrated to Puerto Rico while he was a child during the Franois Duvalier regime. Duval-Carri studied at the Universit de Montral and McGill University in Canada before graduating with a Bachelor of Arts from Loyola College, Montral in 1978. He later attended the cole Nationale Suprieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, France, from 1988 to 1989. He resided in France for many years and currently lives in Miami, Florida. "I didn't want to go back to Haiti because of the political turmoil there. I have two kids," he explains. Instead he resides among Miami's substantial Haitian immigrant population and maintains cultural ties to his homeland. His works have been exhibited in Europe and the Americas.Duval-Carri's art reflects the culture and history of Haiti with references to the Vodou religion. His work is often overtly political, executed in attempts to embody his nation's spirit and its troubles with an attitude that is neither detached nor ironic. His 1979 work J.C. Duvalier en Folle de Mari (Jean-Claude Duvalier as Mad Bride) is a criticism of the country's controversial leader. Later in Mardigras at Fort Dimanche Duval-Carri juxtaposes Duvalier against a torture chamber, an army general, and other symbols of the repressive regime. New York University classified his output as magical realism for an event to accompany the book launch of Continental Shifts: The Art of Edouard Duval Carri, which was published by the university's press. He operates in a variety of media: altarpieces, lacquered tiles, and reliquaries in addition to painting and sculpture. Installations have become more prevalent in his recent output.
As Duval-Carri explained his artistic motivations for a Miami art gallery:I have tried to analyze the historical context of the genesis of that partial island nation (Haiti), looked at the strife and suffering that brought the then society of slaves and slave masters to the point of ebullition. I look closely at the savagery on both parts of the struggle, understanding and giving my total sympathy to the downtrodden, not realizing that patterns are easily learned and extremely resilient to alteration... I have scrutinized the successive generations of pathetic leaders and their sordid entourages... But that is politics and an artist should be well cautioned to keep at bay that kind of poetry, which should be resumed as that of futility. So a step further or a level deeper was reached when the fabulous world of spirits, old and new, true and false, real and imagined, made themselves felt at different planes of consciousness. They come under many names, all quite entrancing. Loas, Espirits, or Mysteres all conveying a sense of foreboding inspiring the nebulousness from whence they come.
Duval-Carri received a South Florida Cultural Consortium Visual Art Fellowship in 1995 and a Southern Arts Federation Visual Art Fellowship in 1996. His work has been shown in solo exhibitions in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Colombia, France, Mexico, and in several states of the United States. Two of the artist's works are displayed as public commissions in Miami: a 1996 piece for the Jefferson Reaves Rehabilitative and Health Center and The Lady of Miami at One Miami Riverwalk.
The following MUSEUMS contain works by Duval-Carri in their collections.
