Ferrari rounded the F430 range off in 2006 with the (quiet) introduction of the GTC competition car. Replacing the 360 GTC, the Michelotto built car is intended for international racing in the GT2 class. The displacement of the V8 was decreased to just under 4 litre to get optimal performance in conjunction with the mandatory restrictors. Externally the F430 GTC can be immediately identified by its carbon fibre gills in the front bumper and rear wing.

The 430 GT-R made its debut in the 2006 Sebring 12 Hours. It proved to be quick straight out of the box and could have easily won its class if it wasn't for the wheel nuts acting up. In Europe several cars were entered in the Le Mans Series and FIA GT Championship, scoring victories in both opening rounds; quite a remarkable feat as in one occasions the car was not delivered to the winning team until a few days before the race.

For the 24 Hours of Le Mans race two F430 GTCs were on the entrylist. Unfortunately one was forced to withdraw after a heavy crash at Spa a few weeks earlier virtually destroyed the car. Ferrari's sole remaining representitive was the Scuderia Ecosse team, who qualifying second in GT2. In the race a number of minor problems the car tumbeled down the order early on, but at the end the Scots' effort was rewarded with a podium finish. Crossing the line was an achievement on its own as the 360 GTC never managed to complete a 24 hour race.
