The Ferrari 360 replaced the hugely successful F355. The ageing F355 was Ferrari’s best selling car of all time and showed that Luca di Montezemolo was bring the company back towards profitability and success after Enzo’s death. Production started in 1999 with the first cars being the Modena, taking its name from the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari. Built as a two-seater, mid engined, rear wheel drive Coupe or Spider. Ferrari partnered with Alcoa to produce an entirely new all aluminum space-frame chassis that was 40% stiffer than the F355. The design was also 28% lighter despite a 10% increase in overall dimensions, which offered a significantly improved power to weight ratio over the outgoing F355. Along with the lightweight frame the all-new Pininfarina body styling deviated from traditions of the previous decade's sharp angles and flip-up headlights. A new 3.6 litre V8 engine developing 400 bhp coupled with either a six speed manual or the optional F1 automated manual transmission, propelled the car from 0-60 mph in just 4.3 seconds and onto a top speed of 189 mph. Complementing it prodigious performance the 360 incorporates state of the art technology including; Computer controlled variable damping, electronic drive by wire throttle, traction control and anti lock brakes.
