Lot 246 - 2005 Ferrari 360 Modena Spider
|Odometer reading||81 miles|
|Estimate||£140,000 - £170,000|
The Ferrari 360 is a two-seater sports car manufactured from 1999 to 2005. It succeeded the Ferrari F355 and is a mid-engined, rear wheel drive, V8-powered coupé. Ferrari partnered with Alcoa to produce an entirely new, all aluminium space-frame chassis that was 40% stiffer than the F355. Along with a lightweight frame, the new Pininfarina body styling deviated from traditions of the previous decade's sharp angles and flip-up headlights. The new V8 engine utilises a 3.6 litre capacity and, despite seemingly modest gains, in reality the power to weight ratio was significantly improved. The first model to be rolled out was the 360 Modena followed later by the 360 Spider and finally as a special edition, the Challenge Stradale; there were 8,800 Modena's and 7,565 Spiders produced in total.
This Ferrari is a unique vehicle in respect of the condition and mileage. Our inspection confirmed this 360 to be totally original and in 'as new' condition in every aspect. The paintwork and interior remain as pristine as the day it was built and incredibly, the car has covered a mere 81 miles since being registered on 24th January 2005. Perhaps even more impressive is the comprehensive service history that accompanies this Ferrari:

The original service book is fully stamped confirming the above and there is also an MoT test history print out; the current MoT test certificate is valid until 30th July 2016. This Ferrari is fitted with the more desirable manual gearbox and is finished in Rosso Corsa with black trim. A Ferrari 360 Spider is a very handsome car and has always had a strong following. Having covered an incredible 22 miles since its 'pre-delivery inspection' and with an astonishing eight services in that period, there surely cannot be a better example than this anywhere in the world.
