Ferrari’s most successful model since the 308, the F355 was always going to be a tough act to follow. Its successor needed to be ground breaking and revolutionary; two words which, without doubt the 360 lived up to. Starting with a clean sheet of paper in designing the 360 Modena, the new car attracted superlatives that put even its illustrious predecessor in the shade.

Just about the only item carried over from the F355 was its glorious V8 engine, enlarged from 3.5 to 3.6 litres for the 360, producing 400bhp. In every other respect the 360 was entirely new, the most striking break with Ferrari tradition being the body’s frontal treatment; gone was the omnipresent oval grille, replaced by two separate intakes set low into the front wings. A larger car than the F355, the 360 owed its radical new shape to the quest for increased downforce, generating four times as much as its predecessor yet achieving the impressively low Cd of 0.33.

There was further innovation beneath the skin: a lighter, stiffer aluminium space frame monocoque replacing the old tubular steel arrangement, resulting in a dry weight around 220lbs less than that of the F355. The 360’s on-the-road dynamics constituted a significant advance, its best time around Ferrari’s Fiorano test track being some three seconds faster than the F355’s.

Finished in a desirable colour scheme of Nero D.S. solid black with a matching black leather seating and red carpeting, this 360 Modena has clearly been very well maintained over the years, supported by a comprehensive file of invoices and receipts, many with Ferrari main dealers. Other than regular servicing work, we note a bill on file for a gearbox rebuild (£8,700) and more recently a suspension overhaul (£4,700).   

We understand the 360’s body and paintwork to be in excellent order, with only a few stone chips present, commensurate with the age of the vehicle. The wheels are all in excellent order, fitted with Pirellis P-Zero tyres on each corner. This very original example is trimmed inside in black leather with red highlights, matched to the door cards and leather covered dash, and fitted with the correct Ferrari-branded Becker Traffic Pro infotainment system.

Complete with the original owner’s wallet and all manuals, and to be offered with a new MoT certificate, this well historied example is a highly usable choice for those tempted by 360 Modena ownership.
