The Ferrari 360 Modena was a rather successful departure from the Ferrari 355 that it replaced. Extensive use of aluminum created both a stronger as well as lighter chassis. The high revving V8 that now displaced 3.6L made even more power. The cars handled brilliantly and the design was very well received. Today the cars are common. They have held up well and there is no shortage of them in the secondary market with the exception of one very notable distinction; the 6-speed manual. Back in 1999 when the 360 was introduced, Ferrari offered the latest F1 single clutch gearbox. Clients were wowed by the technology, using the paddles much like the Formula One drivers of the time; Schumacher and Irvine. By today's standards, the single clutch gearbox is both slow and clumsy producing a big backlash of momentum when shifting at anything less that flat-out. Though produced in much smaller numbers, the 6-speed manual fitted to the 360's is one Ferrari's best. Though considered old fashioned back in the late 90's, it is the preferred box to purchase when looking for a 360 to own today. Low production numbers, a much more gratifying driving experience and the simple fact the Ferrari does not offer a manual any longer has made the 6-speed manuals the collectors choice. 6-speed cars fetch aprox a 30% premium over their F-1 counterparts and that percentage is growing by the season. Finding a nice one is only getting more difficult.
The mid-engined Ferrari 360 Modena can trace its origins directly to the 1968 Ferrari Dino 206 GT; Ferrari's very first road going mid-engined automobile. The Dino's dynamic DNA is evident from the moment you drive the Modena down your favorite backroad. The seating position is quite low and the view forward is between two gorgeous rounded front fenders; shaped as only the Italians can. Selecting first gear through the gated shifter will immediately put a smile on your face. The gates provide a seriousness of task associated with the legends of Le Mans or the Targa Florio. The pedals are equal to the challenge with their close spacing. The clutch take up is light and easy. The steering is precise and not over boosted. The motor builds power from very low; surprising when you consider how high it revs. And rev it does. all the way past 8,000 RPM. Character that was deliberately engineered into the very first Dino is brimming through the Modena. The car feels small, tidy and efficient. The visibility is quite good while still feeling exotic. The shifter is easier than you expect once warm. The throttle is sensitive, requiring just a light tap to match revs when downshifting. The car handles exceptionally well up to 9/10ths. When rushed into a corner the front end will push predictably. The single greatest trait present though, is the roar from the four cam, mid-engine layout. Just like the Dino, acceleration from the screaming V8 engine mounted right behind your ears, is nothing short of breathtaking. No other car can make you feel more like a race car driver than this Ferrari.
This particular example is in excellent mechanical condition; a perfect driver. The car was sold to its' present owner by way of Ferrari of San Francisco a little more than two years ago and has remained in the Bay Area. Collector owned and afforded fastidious maintenance, this example preserves its' excellent mechanical order and rather light interior patina. This Modena truly belies its age.
Ferrari or San Francisco performed an annual service and changed the timing belt back in Sept of 2014. Grand Prix Motors of Campbell Ca has maintained the car ever since. In February of this year the car received its' most recent maintenance including a complete annual service, smog test, oil change, cabin filter and a new O2 sensor. This was approximately 500 miles ago (at 29,437 miles). This Ferrari needs nothing to be immediately enjoyed by its new custodian.
