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. A total of 991 righthand drive 360 spiders were delivered to the UK with 478 of them fitted with the manual gearbox.
This lovely one-owner from new car has just been imported from Malaysia and has covered a mere 11,935 miles from new. The car comes with a comprehensive history file, Ferrari tool kit and a new MoT test certificate which expires in November 2018. An intermediate service was carried out in 2015 which included a cam belt change. Its colour combination of blue with ivory leather interior and blue piping must be one of the most sought-after of all the Ferrari colours, this is a striking and sleek example of the iconic marque.
