Perhaps no model range is more responsible for firmly thrusting Ferrari into the 21st century than the 360. Originally appearing in coupe form as the Modena in 1999, the 360 featured revolutionary all-aluminum construction undertaken in partnership with Alcoa. The 3.6-liter engine, developed from the outgoing F355 model, was constructed entirely of light alloy, employing Nicasil-treated cylinder liners and a dry-sump lubrication system.
Utilizing Bosch Motronic ME 7.3 fuel management, the engine developed 400 hp and 275 foot-pounds of torque, capable of propelling the Modena to 60 mph in 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 183 mph. The aluminum coachwork styled by Pininfarina was a major departure from earlier designs, eschewing the classic egg-crate grille for two small radiator inlets, though it featured rear haunch scoops that recalled the 250 LM and Dino models.
At the 2000 Geneva Salon, Ferrari unveiled a spider version that required minimal structural reinforcement because of the technologically advanced design and therefore weighed only 130 pounds more than the coupe. With the electronically administered soft top retracted, the spider lent the design a particularly sleek appearance, and the open model significantly outsold the coupe variant, becoming one of the most popular Ferraris ever built.
This extremely original and barely driven 360 Spider was desirably optioned with Scuderia shields, modular wheels, red brake calipers, and power seats. Sold new to an enthusiast in Texas, the beautiful Ferrari was seldom driven and carefully garaged for almost 15 years. Currently displaying just 392 miles on the odometer, this Spider essentially offers showroom condition and is accompanied by owner’s manuals, extra keys, and a car cover. It would make an ideal acquisition for any marque collector searching for original low-mileage examples of important models, ideal for display at local concours d’elegance and Cars & Coffee gatherings.
