Description

The Ferrari 360 is often labelled as the first modern V8 Ferrari, with an entirely new exterior design and multiple technological improvements over the incredibly popular F355. Like other Ferraris, ‘360’ denotes the engines 3.6 litre capacity and Modena pays tribute to the birth place of Enzo Ferrari, Modena. At the heart of the 360’s development was its chassis, where Ferrari partnered with Alcoa (the 8th largest producer of aluminium in the world) to produce an entirely new space-frame chassis that was a staggering 40% stiffer than the steel one used in the F355. Despite its visual increase in size the 360 was in fact 28% lighter with the aid of the new chassis.

The 360’s all new V8 engine generated 395 horsepower, which allowed the car to reach 60mph in just 4.5 seconds meaning it was almost as fast as its V12 sibling, the 550 Maranello. The 360 was available in both manual and F1 paddle shift, of which most buyers chose F1 due to its racing feel. F1 could be operated in both a manual and auto mode to suit the needs of the driver, this was also accompanied by a ‘Sport’ mode button which activates some subtle changes to transform the way the car drives. In cars with the F1 gearbox, enabling sport mode quickens gear change times. Dependant on engine speeds the upshift is almost instantaneous and downshifts are also faster, the throttle is automatically blipped and the lower gear is immediately engaged in order to provide additional braking at the rear wheels if slowing.

The Ferrari 360 Spider was unveiled a year later at the Geneva Motor Show as Ferrari’s twentieth convertible road car.

This wonderful example was supplied new by HR Owen of London to a Mr Craven on 01/05/2003, specified with a manual transmission, finished in Rosso Corsa with Tan leather and Bianco stitching.
