Introduced in 1999 as a replacement for the F355, the 360 Modena was named in honour of Enzo Ferrari's birthplace and featured an entirely new space frame chassis which was 40% stiffer and 28% lighter than that of its predecessor. Powered by a 3.6-litre V8 coupled to either a manual or F1 electrohydraulic manual transmission, the 360's lighter weight improved the 0-60 mph dash to just 4.2 seconds with a nominal top speed of 189mph. In 2001, a spyder version was introduced followed in 2003 by the ultimate incarnation - the 360 racing series inspired Challenge Stradale - featuring a number of weight saving and tuning modifications by the factory.
This striking LHD example, registering some 58,000 km on its odometer, is finished in grey with beige leather and was supplied new by Testarossa Cars SA of Madrid. An email from Ferrari Hanover states red brake callipers, rear challenge grill, front challenge grills, road legal roll bar, and 4 point safety harnesses were all factory specified. In 2003 the car was purchased by its second owner through Pozzi Charles SA in France via a dealer in Bayonne. In 2009 the car was registered in Germany where two further owners have been recorded. The vendor informs us the car will have received a cambelt service prior to the sale and that the service book contains 6 stamps, the most recent from a specialist in July 2015. Service stamps and receipts originate from France, Luxemburg, Germany and Ireland whilst the German TUV test expired in August 2015. Described as being in "very good" condition in regards to its bodywork, paintwork, interior, engine and transmission, the car is EU registered (German documents) and is accompanied by a complete tool kit and book pack including Ferrari torch and file of receipts.
