It is reported that approximately 7,500 examples of the Ferrari 360 Spider were produced from 1999 to 2004, and it has become one of the most noteworthy sports cars of the era. The beautifully designed Pininfarina body and its rounded lines remind many of the legendary sports racers campaigned by Ferrari in the 1960s with its rear engine bay length, twin rollbars, rear fairings and steep windscreen. Ferrari engineers created a top that automatically folds away inside the engine bay, thus ensuring purity of line. The transformation from a closed top to an open-air convertible has been described as "a stunning twenty-second mechanical symphony". An entirely new all aluminum-space-frame chassis was fitted with a 3.6-liter V-8 engine and has a top speed of nearly 190-mph. The gearbox for this particular car is a five-speed manual with the well-recognized gated shifter.
This striking Ferrari is finished in a lovely presentation of colors and has the desirable and optional Ferrari shields on the front flanks. Factory alloy wheels, four-wheel disc brakes, Feerrari Prancing Horse logos are embossed in the headrests, Ferrari labeled brake calipers, power windows, air conditioning and a hint of the Ferrari “shark nose” 156 Formula One car seen in the front end styling all signify a very special car built for hurtling down the roadway. 2003 Ferrari 360 Spider
