Foskers are pleased to offer this stunning Ferrari 360 Modena F1 Coupe, with only 10,900 recorded miles and finished in the desirable combination of Rosso Corsa on Nero leather seats.
Succeeding the extremely popular Ferrari F355 range, the 360 Modena took the world by storm upon its release in 1999. In simplistic terms, the design brief for the new car was basically to do everything that the F355 did already, but do it better, with less weight, more interior space, greater comfort and superior performance.
All these objectives were achieved with a massive technological leap over its predecessors, being the first production Ferrari to be constructed entirely in aluminium. Chassis, body shell and suspension wishbones are all made from this light-weight material, allowing the engineers to provide vastly improved aerodynamics and the best overall performance and handling ever achieved in a mid-engined Ferrari, along with increased levels of comfort.
The mid mounted 90 degree V8 engine is a derivation of that designed for the F355 with an increase in cubic capacity to 3.6 litres, hence the 360 model designation. A claimed power output of 400bhp, at the time of launch magazine road tests recorded a 0-60 mph time of 4.2 seconds quoting the manufacturer top speed of 184 mph.
Using Formula 1 technology the 360 Modena features a more sophisticated and upgraded version of the F1 six speed gearbox. This features up and down gear change paddles behind the steering wheel, manual and auto settings plus sport mode which activates subtle changes to transform the way the car drives.
Advantage of the revised system on sensing an input from the driver on either paddle, the throttle opening adjusts accordingly during the change process to automatically smooth out the gear change.
The suspension and braking systems provide either ‘normal’ or ‘sport’ mode otherwise switch off completely dependent on the driver’s wishes.
Delivered new to Meridian Modena on the 1st May 2003, this meticulously well maintained example benefits from a recent cambelt service among other crucial works from Foskers workshop.
Specification includes: Challenge Rear Grill, Air conditioning, Electric Leather Seats, Red Brake Callipers and Xenon Headlamps.
