This 1 of only 259 US Challenge Stradale's is presented in what
many may consider to be the ultimate collector's specification.
This Concours d'Elegance level example is presented in Nero over
black and red alcantara interior, a color combination of which few
cars were produced in. Roughly 5% of the 259 US Stradale's came in
black as can be seen in the Ferrari 360 Stradale registry. Only 31%
of all examples, including this one, came painted by the factory
with the highly desirable and extremely recognizable signature
center stripe. It is perfectly optioned with a black leather
dashboard, Handly fire extinguisher, two tone stripe (as previously
stated), special features, yellow brake calipers, and red colored
standard stitching. All these options were an additional
This particular Ferrari was delivered new from Cauley Ferrari on September 13, 2004. The second owner reportedly obtained the vehicle in April of 2014. Cauley Ferrari annually serviced the Stradale until it moved from Michigan where it remained until August of 2016 which is when this immaculate vehicle made its way to sunny California. Down in Southern California, Ferrari of Orange County performed a PPI inspection and compression tests all demonstrating the immaculate condition of this extremely well kept Stradale. The last annual service was completed on August 2016 with only 5,095 miles on the odometer. A full front end clear bra was soon installed the following September of that same year. A few months later, in December, our consignee purchased this beautiful, well-balanced, street-legal race car. Lastly, exactly three years from the last belt replacement, the renown Modena Motorsport completed a belt service on March 31, 2017. Both Gustavo, the service manager of Modena Motorsports and our detailer specialist, Tim Scott, could not believe the condition quality that this pristine Stradale is in, mechanically and cosmetically. Please keep in mind that there are other 360 Challenge Stradale's out on the market, however many of them have been abused both on and off the track. This marvelous example is a close as it gets to a true race car, with only a few hundred miles under the hood.
When the 360 Modena was nearly four years old Ferrari wanted to homologate some improvements for their GTC racer and thus the 360 Challenge Stradale was introduced. The Challenge Stradale weighs in at just 44lbs more than the 360 Challenge and a staggering 240lbs less than a standard Modena resulting in a dramatic performance increase. The Stradale features a host of aero and mechanical refinements that combine to make it 3.5 seconds faster around Fiorano than an ordinary Modena. The engine is a work of art and provides the driver with an audible symphony of a powerful exhaust note and the kind of performance that is unique to a race-ready car designed for road use. The F1 transmission, which shifts in 150 milliseconds, produces lightning-quick changes through the 6-speed gearbox, incorporating two different configurations, sport and race, with corresponding damper and traction control settings.
The Challenge Stradale, being one of Ferraris truly dual purpose road and track racers, has justifiably earned a place in the history books as offering an extraordinary driving experience completely removed from the rest. When driving, this Stradale will never disappoint in giving its next owner the greatest, most raw driving experience one can ever obtain while behind the wheel, feeling every response this Ferrari gives and receives on the road.
