The Ferrari 360 was manufactured from 1999 to 2005 and succeeded the F355. It is a mid-engine, rear-wheel drive, V8 powered coupé and 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 utilised a 3.6 litre capacity and, despite what looked like, on paper, as 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.

Registered new on 22nd June 2000, this superb manual example is finished in Grigio Titanio coachwork over a Nero leather interior and is in stunning condition inside and out. The engine bay is in excellent order and the original alloy wheels are in unmarked condition, shod with Pirelli tyres with plenty of tread. Complete with a history file including an extensive service history with 15 service stamps, many invoices detailing its maintenance over the years, its original Ferrari book pack and tan leather wallet, almost every MoT test certificate from new, including a MoT test certificate valid until April 2024. The last service was completed less than 200 miles ago and included new cambelts and upgraded tensioners, amongst various other new replacement parts. All sticky interior plastics were also replaced which is a common and expensive issue with all Ferrari’s of this era. Reported to drive very well indeed, this superb example is offered in arguably the most desirable specification and is a superb opportunity for investors and collectors alike.
