When the Ferrari 360 was revealed at the 1999 Geneva motor show, it wowed the crowds with its svelte, sweeping bodylines. It was a far cry from the last two decades’ trends of sharp angles, pop-up headlights and open slats over the engine bay. In their place were curved wings, fixed headlights and a clear glass cover showcasing the V8’s bright red plenum chambers.
The Ferrari 360 was the company’s first production car with the chassis, bodyshell and even the suspension wishbones all constructed from aluminium. The 400hp V8, coupled with these lightweight aluminium components, gives the 360 fantastic performance that was a substantial improvement over the F355.
With the introduction of the 360 Spider in 2000, Ferrari brought its convertible V8 supercar up to date, introducing a hood that folded away automatically under panels in the rear deck - eliminating the need for a tonneau cover over a protruding frame. The Spider lost virtually nothing to the coupé in terms of performance, but offered the substantial benefit of being fully exposed to the howl of its mid-mounted 3.6-litre V8.
This particular Ferrari 360 Spider is presented in the stunning original factory colours of racing red (Rosso Corsa) over Creama hide with red carpets.
The interior features climate control, electric windows and heated door mirrors. The wings are embellished with Scuderia shields, front and rear Challenge grills, sports exhaust, Red stitching, Crema roll hoops, Xenon lights. It is accompanied by a complete factory book pack, stamped service book, plus its original tool-kit.
The car was first registered in April 2004 and has been lovingly maintained by subsequent owners ever since. It now presents with a full service history, having only ever been worked on by main dealers and marque specialists.
This beautiful Ferrari 360 Spider is ready to drive and enjoy, fresh from an annual service by Foskers.
