When the 360 Modena was nearly four years old Ferrari wanted to homologate some improvements for their GTC racer and thus the 360 Challenge Stradale was introduced. The Challenge Stradale weighs in at just 20kg more than the Challenge and a staggering 110 Kg less than a standard Modena resulting in a dramatic performance increase. The Stradale features a host of aero and mechanical refinements that combine to make it 3.5 seconds faster around Fiorano than a ordinary Modena.Modifications include, Carbon Ceramic brakes as standard, a 50% lighter multi axial carbon floor plan, a 25 BHP increase in power, aerodynamic tweaks allowing for up to 50% more vertical loading (including a different bumper, boot lid and sills as well as venturi ducts at the rear), carbon racing seats with 4 point harnesses, a stripped out interior with alcantara dash and carbon door cards as standard and an F1 gearbox with shift times of just 150 milliseconds to name nut a few.
The car offered here by DK was delivered in October 2003 to its first owner by HR Owen in London, it is one of only 119 cars that came to the UK. Optional extras fitted to this example include, the stereo upgrade with speakers between the seats, an aluminium roll cage, a fire extinguisher, wing shields, black and red alcantara seats and Xenon lights.
This Stradale is presented in Rosso Corsa with a Tricolore stripe and has now had only two owners from new and covered an indicated 22,000 Miles. Cambelts were changed in March 2008 and the service history is full Ferrari main dealer. This car has recently benefited from an annual service at DK, a new clutch, flywheel, brakes and tyres. All tools, books, a spare key and a car cover also accompany the car. Armourfend protection to the most of the car results in near perfect condition.
