Web Find: ’01 Ferrari 360 Modena

The Ferrari 360 Modena debuted in 1999 and replaced the F355. Ferrari worked to develop a car that was considerably more agile than the outgoing mid-engined V8, and so built the 360 on an aluminum space frame chassis. This helped to reduce the weight of the 360 by nearly 30% despite the fact that it was a larger car than the F355 and carried heavy safety technologies.

To this day, the 360 puts out respectable performance figures, with a redline at 8400 rpm the Ferrari reaches 60 mph in under 4.0 seconds on to a top speed of 180 mph thanks to a 90º mounted 3.6-liter V8.

What appears to be a well looked after Ferrari 360 Modena is for sale on eBay with a “buy it now price” of $75,000. The car has 16,247 miles on it. The exterior appears to be in terrific shape, and while it’s difficult to make out the condition of the interior from the photos it’s hard to imagine it being bad considering the car’s low mileage. However, the 360 was made when Ferrari sourced a good number of interior fixtures from cheap suppliers, so it’s possible the interior needs a bit of work.

The car comes with a six speed automated manual transmission, Scuderia Ferrari badging, red break calipers, and the original tool kit

The Ferrari 360 was developed during an interesting time in Ferrari’s history. It was built before Ferrari decided to put every dial and button on the steering wheel, before driver assists were required to get around the track quickly, but after Ferrari realized it needed to produce a mid-engined car that could carry the Ferrari name when it’s Formula 1 team couldn’t.
