  • A blisteringly fast and much-desired competition-focused model
  • One of approximately 378 examples specified for North America
  • Showing 9,507 miles on the odometer at the time of cataloguing
  • Finished in Rosso Corsa over a red/black Alcantara interior

In 1993 Ferrari introduced a race-prepared version of its V-8 model for use in a new single-marque competition series dubbed the Ferrari Challenge. Ten years later the 360 Modena was transformed into a roadgoing race car called the Challenge Stradale, which substantially shaved weight through the removal of sound insulation and other creature comforts. The model was equipped with advanced mechanical elements like an F1-style paddle-shifted transaxle, uprated carbon ceramic brakes, and a retuned V-8 engine with higher compression and a resulting additional 25 horsepower (for a total 425 horsepower).

Ferrari ultimately built fewer than 1,300 examples of the prodigious 360-based Challenge Stradale, approximately 378 of which were specified for North America. The model was an instant classic with Maranello racing connoisseurs, offering the purest and fastest iteration of the already-dazzling 360 Modena.

Befitting of a competition bred sports car, the 360 Challenge Stradale on offer wears a striking Rosso Corsa exterior over a red/black Alcantara interior. Being a North American-specification example, the vehicle lacks the Lexan windows fitted in other markets, but it does feature prominent Scuderia shields on the quarter panels, a hi-fi radio with CD player, carbon fiber mirrors, Rosso Corsa brake calipers, and a fire extinguisher. Delivered new to the state of California, the car now shows just 9,507 miles on the odometer at the time of cataloguing. A tool kit, owner’s books, and a car cover will accompany the Ferrari upon purchase.

The Challenge Stradale offers Maranello enthusiasts a blisteringly fast track-ready 360 that can be equally admired or driven for casual fun. Ideal for display at FCA events, supercar Sundays, or local cars-and-coffee gatherings, examples with low mileage and desirable factory specifications are becoming increasingly difficult to find. As such, this particular 360 Challenge Stradale offering represents a wonderful opportunity to acquire one of Ferrari's best.
