Introduced in 1999, the 360 featured an entirely new space frame chassis which was 40% stiffer and 28% lighter than that of its F355 predecessor. Powered by a 3.6-litre V8 coupled to either 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. According to its accompanying FIRES printout (Ferrari Intellectual Reading Exchange System), this particular RHD example was built to special order with a Ferrari wing shield, Dark Blue hood, colour-coded steering wheel / dashboard / windscreen pillars / rollover bars, Red highlight stitching (which even extends to the sun visors), Red piped electrically operated seats, front / rear Challenge grilles and Red callipers. Finished in Grigio Alloy with Carta da Zucchero upholstery and Nuovo Rosso carpets, it was supplied new by Cornes & Co Ltd of Tokyo to Alan Smith on 30th June 2004. A Jersey resident with Japanese business interests, Mr Smith had the Spider shipped home a few months later and converted to full UK specification at 660 miles by main dealer Meridien Modena of Lyndhurst, Hampshire. Costing £6,652.26 and carried out between November 2004 and March 2005, work included the installation of a GB dash unit and new front bumper assembly with integral headlamp wash system. Becoming the two-seater's first registered UK keeper on October 17th 2013, Meriden Modena sold it to the vendor the following July having carried out a full belt service at 14,306 miles. Prompted to send 'HL04 ZBD' to Lancaster Ferrari of Colchester by a faulty fuel filler valve, the seller has since entrusted its maintenance to marque specialist Grimaldi Engineering. Last treated to a major service at 16,642 miles in November 2016, this notably handsome 360 F1 Spider is rated by the vendor as 'very good' (bodywork, paintwork, interior trim) or 'excellent' (engine, F1 transmission, electrical equipment) and comes complete with a 'no advisories' MOT certificate valid until June 2018.
