The Ferrari F360 was built as a two-seater sports car by Ferrari from 1999 to 2005. The new model had an entirely new all-aluminium space frame chassis which was 40% stiffer than the previous model and 28% lighter. Fitted with a 3.6Ltr V8 engine, coupled to a 6 speed gearbox, the Challenge Stradale model is a low production track day focused car - from the outset, the engineers designed the car with a 20% track day use and 80% road use in mind. The engine generated 426BHP at 8500RPM which gave it a top speed of 190mph, and other improvements included more responsive throttle software, enhanced steering wheel feedback, and a reduction in weight by as much as 95KG. The Challenge Stradale also got Brembo carbon ceramic brakes as standard, shaving 16KG of the curb weight, improved handling, and eliminated brake fade.

We are pleased to offer this left-hand drive, 2004 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale finished in Argento Nurburgring Metallic with red/black seats, red painted calipers, radio, full harnesses, full Alcantara dashboard and a two-tone leather steering wheel. We believe the car was supplied new through Tamsen Ferrari Hamberg, Germany, before being exported to Japan. Whilst there, the Japanese service records show it was serviced at 493 km, 2,508km, 2,685km, 4,232 km, 4,562km, 5,241km, 5,339 and finally at 7,943 km where it was serviced at the Ferrari Main Dealer in Tokyo, Rosso Scuderia KK.

Our vendor regretted selling his previous Challenge Stradale so much that he bought and imported this car to the UK in 2015 when it had covered 9,883 km. It was immediately sent to marque specialist QV London, where it had a full cam-belt service(9,874), replacement tensioner bearings, new filters, new gearbox and engine oil, and a new front undertray generating an invoice of £2,926. At the end of 2016, the car was sent to respected Ferrari specialist, Simon Furlonger, where an annual service was carried out (10,657km) with a host of other work which included fitting the correct wheels bolts, replacement right-hand side exhaust, replacement correct Stradale grille light panel, replacement radio with correct Ferrari Becker radio/cd, and a new rear undertray. All of these items were replaced with Ferrari parts and engendering another invoice of over £12,000.

Supplied with a UK V5c, its tools, book pack, and an MOT until 9th January 2018, this stunning Challenge Stradale is now showing a mere 10,895 km. These amazing cars are often cited by Ferrarista's as one of the most focused and enjoyable driving experiences ever offered by the Italian marque.
