The 360 Spider is Ferrari's twentieth road-going convertible and was always designed with a Spider variant in mind. Since removing the roof of a coupé reduces the torsional rigidity, the 360 was built for strength in other areas and Ferrari designers strengthened the sills, stiffened the front of the floor pan, and redesigned the windscreen frame. The rear bulkhead had to be stiffened to cut out engine noise from the cabin. The convertible's necessary dynamic rigidity is provided by additional side reinforcements and a cross brace in front of the engine. Passenger safety is ensured by a strengthened windscreen frame and roll bars. The use of light aluminium throughout results in the Spider weighing in only 60 kg (130 lb) heavier than the coupé. 

Originally supplied by Maranello Sales in 2001, this right-hand drive, 360 Spider was ordered with the 6-speed 'Electro-hydraulic' F1 box, finished in GRIGIO TITANIO (3238) with black electric Daytona seats, and a factory upgraded sat nav. It has a complete service history documenting each and every service interval with a stamp at the correct allotted time. The cambelts were replaced during the service in August 2014, and the latest service was completed at 45,570 miles in April 2016. The car has a valid MOT until 7th April 2017, showing no advisories.

The car appears to be in outstanding condition and has patently been really well cared for. The hood operates seamlessly and looks new, the coachwork is superb, and the paintwork has a glorious depth of shine. The interior is equally impressive with the seats and carpet showing no wear, no bolster wear or obvious damage. The engine sounds beautiful from tick over through the rev range and we understand that the transmission and gearbox operate seamlessly, and the electrics are all functioning correctly. 

The Spider is accompanied by its original Ferrari toolkit in its leather case, the original Ferrari book pack containing the manuals and service records, the battery charger, Ferrari seat covers, and a bespoke Ferrari car cover.

Beautifully presented, with a detailed history, and sensibly guided, this is one of the most attractive 360 Spiders we have ever seen.
