In 1999, as a replacement for their much-admired F.355, Ferrari introduced the F.360 to critical acclaim and immediately set a new benchmark for supercar styling and performance.  The 360 Modena design was revolutionary in making extensive use of lightweight materials in its construction resulting in a much lighter car along with increased rigidity whilst also improving the under-body aerodynamics using knowledge gained from their F1 programme.  

Introduced at the Geneva Show in March 1999, the 360 Modena, not unsurprisingly, swelled Ferrari's order books and within weeks there was a two-year waiting list.  Consider us biased, but we think the Pininfarina design has stood the test of time wonderfully, and the sleek lines of the 360 still look fresh today.

On offer here is a special 360 Modena Coupé, an original UK-supplied car in right-hand drive with the desirable 'F1' paddle-shift gearbox.  Finished officially in Grey, the colour actually appears Silver/Blue in the metal with a complementing Blue leather interior, it's in very good overall condition having been the cherished property of just one owner, and covered fewer than 35,000 miles.

Supplied by HR Owen of South Kensington in April 2003, it was looked after by them exclusively from delivery to 33,397 miles in April 2016 with no fewer than ten services during this period.  Since then, a further £6,500+ has been invested with respected specialist sales and preparation outfit, Alexanders Prestige, to further secure this car’s future by replacing all belts, including timing belt, diagnosing and curing oil leaks, replace the sump seal, replacing both upper ball joints, both lower ball joints and covers, lower dust covers, LAMDA sensors, NSF upper arm bushes, oil filter, strip front brakes and repair rad wiring, and to make good some unsightly stone-chipping to both lower sills and rear valance… the list goes on!  Please make sufficient time to study all the accompanying documents if you wish to bid on this car.  It really is worth it.

Needless to say, now offered with a clean bill of health, a fresh MOT, and its official Ferrari leather-bound book pack, Ferrari torch, Owner’s Manual and service book. This really is a most handsome and accomplished sports car with just one-owner from new, and having covered modest mileage whilst being lavishly maintained….  The trifecta!
