Perhaps no model range is more responsible for firmly thrusting Ferrari into the 21st century than the 360. Originally appearing in coupe form as the Modena in 1999, the 360 featured revolutionary all-aluminum construction undertaken in partnership with Alcoa. The 3.6-liter engine, developed from the outgoing F355 model, was constructed entirely of light alloy, employing Nicasil-treated cylinder liners and a dry-sump lubrication system.
Utilizing Bosch Motronic, ME 7.3 fuel management, the engine developed 400 hp and 275 foot-pounds of torque, propelling the Modena to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph. The aluminum coachwork styled by Pininfarina was a significant departure from earlier designs, eschewing the classic egg-crate grille for two small radiator inlets. However, it featured rear haunch scoops that recalled the 250 LM and Dino models.
At the 2000 Geneva Salon, Ferrari unveiled a spider version that required minimal structural reinforcement because of the technologically advanced design and therefore weighed only 130 pounds more than the coupe. With the electronically administered soft top retracted, the spider lent the design a particularly sleek appearance, and the open model significantly outsold the coupe variant, becoming one of the most popular Ferraris ever built.
The magnificent 2004 Ferrari 360 spider featured here is finished in a gorgeous Rosso Corsa over a tan leather interior and black power folding convertible top. This exquisite motorcar has been meticulously maintained from new and driven a mere 4,362 miles, accompanying this investment-grade Ferrari 360 spider arts original owner’s manuals, service records tools and custom car, seat, and steering wheel cover. A recent comprehensive major service was just completed, and this virtually new Ferrari 360 is ready for its next caretaker. For the most demanding collector, investor, or enthusiast who wishes to acquire the very best!!!
