Coachwork by Pininfarina
*Please note that some sources list 360 Challenge Stradale production in excess of 852 cars.
Styled by Pininfarina and released for 1999, the new 360 Modena succeeded the F355 as Ferrari’s mid-engine V-8 standard-bearer. Development in collaboration with Alcoa yielded the immensely strong aluminum space-frame chassis, and excellent aerodynamics resulted from thousands of hours in the wind tunnel. While somewhat larger than its predecessor, the 360 Modena weighed less and delivered shattering performance with its 3.6-liter, DOHC V-8 engine.
The track-oriented 360 Challenge variant begat the roadgoing Challenge Stradale marking the final evolution of the 360 series. As the highest performance street-legal development, it featured Enzo-derived carbon-ceramic brakes, race-tuned suspension, aerodynamic tweaks, reduced weight, increased engine output (now 425 hp), updated gearbox software, carbon-fiber rearview mirrors, 19" Challenge wheels, and specific appearance features. Just 852 were built in all.
Finished in Rosso Scuderia accented by Italian Tricolore striping, Scuderia Ferrari shields, and Alcantara-trimmed competition seats, this 360 Challenge Stradale from 2004 is further adorned with an “F1 World Champion” badge heralding Ferrari’s four straight Manufacturers’ Championships and engraved with this car’s ID number. Accompanied by books, manuals, tools, and a clean CARFAX report, this 360 Challenge Stradale has never seen any track time, and showed less than 1,500 total miles at the time of cataloguing. As such, it stands ready to provide the new owner with a simply electrifying experience.
