- Low mileage, rare version
- Carefully maintained, great car
- Rare and unusual original colour
This Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge was sold new in Germany, to an enthusiast who had the car maintained by Ferrari Stuttgart. In 2008 it was bought by the owner of the Czech team Speedmaster Racing, who covered just 2 000 km in it. The routine annual maintenance was carried out by the team. In 2014 the car returned to Ferrari Stuttgart for a major service, when the belts were replaced shortly before the current owner, a French Porsche collector, acquired the car. He had the CCM brake pads replaced and asked to have the ride height corrected to conform to the original specification. He also had some cosmetic work carried out.
On inspecting the car on a ramp, we found no trace of accident. There is also no sign of any defect in the paintwork to the body, which appears to be original with the exception of the front bumper, specific to this model. The wheels are unmarked and fitted with Pirelli P-Zero tyres with 25% wear. The exhaust is original and the odometer records just over 26 000 km. Inside, the alacantra and carbon bucket seats are in perfect condition, as are the wool carpets. The complete service book (stamped) and owner's manual will be passed on to the new owner. This is a very sound car that has not been modified in any way, as is sometimes the case with very sporty models such as this. Of course, the Challenge Stradale has no reason to envy any other machine : it's V8 3.6-litre engine produces 425 bhp at 8 500 rpm, giving the car exceptional power (and sound !) for a normally aspirated engine. The car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds and has a top speed of over 300 km/h, making this a real supercar. Designed to be suitable for circuit driving, the car also benefits from special suspension, bodywork and brakes, and is more than 100 kg lighter than the standard 360 Modena. Just under 1 300 examples of the Challenge Stradale were built, out of some 17 500 of all versions together.
Before the sale, the car was given an annual service at the Fiorano workshop. With its stunning and very rare yellow livery, full history, low mileage and well-maintained condition, this 360 Modena Challenge Stradale has plenty of driving pleasure to offer.
