The Ferrari 360 was manufactured from 1999 to 2005 and
succeeded the F355. It is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive,
V8-powered coupé and Ferrari partnered with Alcoa to produce an
entirely new, all aluminium space-frame chassis that was 40%
stiffer than the F355. Along with a lightweight frame, the new
Pininfarina body styling deviated from traditions of the previous
decade's sharp angles and flip-up headlights. The new V8 engine
utilises a 3.6 litre capacity and, despite what looks like on paper
modest gains, in reality the power to weight ratio was
significantly improved. The first model to be rolled out was the
360 Modena followed later by the 360 Spider and finally, as a
special edition, the Challenge Stradale; there were 8,800 Modena's
and 7,565 Spiders produced.
This desirable manual, lefthand drive example was first registered
in 2002 and benefits from the Formula 1 championship winner dash
motif only available from the factory on this production year.
Finished in metallic black with a full black leather interior, this
360 Modena is offered in absolutely stunning condition throughout.
An extremely good service history accompanies it and it has been
serviced regularly, most recently this November with GVE Ferrari
including a full cambelt service. Offered with all Ferrari's books
and manuals, a full tool kit coupled with a car cover, this is a
very attractive motorcar and, what can be considered, one of the
ultimate driving Ferraris.
