The Ferrari 355 represented one of the finest cars of the Nineties to come out of the house of Maranello. When the time for a sequel rolled around, Ferrari was on the ball and debuted the 360 in 1999, just in time for the turn of the millennium. Sporting Pininfarina looks, a beautiful-sounding V8, and that signature Ferrari driving feel, it could be forgiven for no longer sporting pop-up headlamps as current safety regulations effectively wrote them out of the future. This particular 2001 Ferrari 360 Modena is a Euro-spec model and, when converted, has the equivalent of 42,700 miles done since new. Snap it up ASAP because someone else will net this rare low-mileage beauty if you don't.
This 2001 Ferrari 360 Modena doesn't come in the stereotypical Rosso Corsa or 'Racing Red' paint job, shunning it for a smooth Grigio Alloy shade instead. It rolls on 19-inch Ferrari wheels from a later model, the F430, to be exact. Red brake calipers rest behind the wheels, and this car also sports a Challenge-style rear grille for added exclusivity. You've also got the Scuderia Ferrari fender shields and twin dark gray stripes down the spine of the car. Inside, it's a two-seat affair in dark blue. The driving seat is where you want to be, where you grip a lovely three-spoke Ferrari steering wheel that's free of the buttons and dials of modern equivalents. There are only two paddle shifters adorning the wheel, as you face an analog gauge cluster with a rev counter that runs all the way up to 10,000rpm and is redlined at 8,500rpm. The 220mph speedometer further reinforces this car's racing pedigree. Of course, it's got creature comforts too, including climate control, power windows, power mirrors, an aftermarket Clarion head unit with a pop-out screen, Bluetooth and DVD playback, as well as a Focal speaker system. There's also a small frunk or front trunk for a modest amount of luggage, although you can use it well if you pack carefully.
The party piece on this 2001 Ferrari 360 Modena is its 3.6L naturally aspirated Tipo F131 V8. Breathing freely with no forced induction, it still manages to develop 395hp at 8,500rpm, as well as 275lb-ft at 4,750rpm. This is all sent to the rear wheels via a 6-speed F1-style Graziano automated manual gearbox. Zero to sixty is a 4.6-second affair, and the top speed is actually limited to 182mph by the engine's redline. A sports exhaust on this car further enhances its already spine-tingling yowl.
