Ferrari 360 was the name given to three models of Ferrari cars: the Ferrari 360 Modena, an enclosed two-door coupe; the Ferrari 360 Spider, a two-door convertible; and the Ferrari Challenge Stradale, the bare-bones version of the 360 Modena. The Ferrari 360 Modena has a 3.6 litre V8 engine producing over 300 kW (400bhp) of power and accelerating from 0-100 km/h in 4.3 secs. All have eight-cylinder engines and aluminum chassis. The 360 was generally well-received. However, some reviewers criticized its handling at the limit as twitchy, similar to its predecessors (the 348 & F355). One real world example of this was when footballer Ian Wright crashed his 360 with a mistimed downshift while slowing down on an uphill road.

The 360 also served as the basis for its replacement, the Ferrari F430 (internally referred to as the evoluzione or evo) which came out in 2004.

Description

Intended as successor to the F355, the 360 Modena (named after the town of Modena, the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari) features styling by Pininfarina and an improved mid-mounted V8 engine; it is the first production Ferrari to be constructed entirely of aluminium. Its six-speed gearbox is available as a manual or F1 electrohydraulic shift. The car went into production in 1999.

Challenge Stradale

The 360 Challenge Stradale has carbon fibre wing mirrors that are smaller than those of the standard car

Description

The Ferrari tradition, epitomized by the F40 model, is one of stripped-down performance and not of luxury. This tradition has recently been let go in favor of the leather and ornamentation of the 360 Modena and 575M Maranello, but Ferrari returned to its roots for the Challenge Stradale. It is a two-door coupe and is essentially the 360 Modena from the outside, though its aerodynamics have been reworked slightly. The main differences are a stripped-out aluminum chassis (causing a significantly lighter vehicle), an upgraded 3.6-liter V8 engine, improved suspension and brakes, larger 19-inch wheels and tires, a Formula One-style sequential gearshift, and extensive use of Carbon fiber components.

It was officially introduced in March of 2003 at the Geneva International Motor Show and went into production shortly thereafter.
