Ferrari 360 Modena History


Ferrari 360
Modena, Spider, Challenge Stradale
Manufacturer: Ferrari

Ferrari 360 is the name given to three models of Ferrari cars: the Ferrari 360 Modena, an enclosed two-door coupe; the Ferrari 360 Spider, a two-door convertible; and the Ferrari Challenge Stradale, the bare-bones version of the 360 Modena. The Ferrari 360 Modena has a 3.6 litre V8 engine producing 400bhp+ and accelerating from 0-62mph in 4.3 secs. All have eight-cylinder engines and aluminum chassis. The 360 was replaced by the Ferrari F430 in 2005.

Its six-speed gearbox is available as a manual or F1 electrohydraulic shift. The car went into production in 1999.

Challenge Stradale

The 360 Challenge Stradale has carbon fibre wing mirrors that are smaller than those of the standard car


Description

The Ferrari tradition, epitomized by the F40 model, is one of stripped-down performance and not of luxury. This tradition has recently been let go in favor of the leather and ornamentation of the 360 Modena and 575M Maranello, but Ferrari returned to its roots for the Challenge Stradale. It is a two-door coupe and is essentially the 360 Modena from the outside, though its aerodynamics have been reworked slightly. The main differences are a stripped-out aluminum chassis (causing a significantly lighter vehicle), an upgraded 3.6-liter V8 engine, improved suspension and brakes, and a Formula One-style sequential gearshift.

It was officially introduced in March of 2003 at the Geneva International Motor Show and went into production shortly therafter.
