In 1999, Ferrari considered their much-loved and hugely accomplished 355 ready for replacing, a bold move as many thought it the marques best junior supercar ever. The 360 adopted new materials and construction methods and Ferrari designed the 355's successor from scratch. The firm's desire to be back at the forefront of racing with its successful endurance and F1 programmes at the time had also filtered its way down to the street cars. The design was revolutionary for example making extensive use of exotic lightweight materials throughout, the 360's construction has resulted in the frame weighing 28% less than the outgoing 355, structural rigidity having been increased by an amazing 40%. With Ferrari wanting the interior to be more spacious, the wheelbase was stretched by 150mm, width rising by 15mm, the need to accomodate a set of golf clubs having been a pre-requisite. Ferrari paid particular attention to improving underbody aerodynamics and thus the 360 boasts a completely flat bottom with two prominent diffusers clearly visible from the rear.
The 360's Tipo F131B engine produced a staggering 400bhp at 8500rpm from just 3586cc! This resulted in an extremely impressive 0-60 time requiring just 4.4 seconds and a 186mph top speed. It came as no surprise when Turin styling house Pininfarina, who have a long-standing association with Ferrari, were chosen to create the bodywork and interior. Notable features from a what is a very modern design are the gaping air intakes for the front-mounted radiators and those 250 LM-esque engine-cooling ducts mounted atop the rear wings. Thanks to a great deal of time in the wind tunnel, Pininfarina produced an exceptionally clean profile without need for additional wings, flares or blisters. One of the other striking features on the 360 Modena is a large glass rear screen that proudly displays the engine in all its glory.
Introduced at the Geneva Salon in March 1999, the Modena unsurprisingly swelled Ferrari's order books and a two year backlog was on the cards within weeks. The model stayed in production until 2004 when the F430 was introduced.
This example is a very late 360 Modena being one of the last cars built and was delivered on the 31st of March 2004 by Maranello Sales to its first owner. The car is of a very high and most desirable specification being finished in Black with Black Leather Daytona seats (with white stitching) and black carpets. The car is equipped with essential enamel Scuderia wing shields, Silver Calipers, Modular Split Alloys, a factory stereo upgrade, xenon lights and Challenge Grills (front and rear) - what more could you ask for!The car has a full service history and has been looked after by ourselves at no expense spared for the past 3 years being last serviced in August having all items requiring attention rectified.The car is presented in stunning condition without a mark in sight to the body or the interior and has covered just 22,000 miles from new.
