The first model of the 360 produced was the 360 Modena named after the Italian town of Modena, the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari. Its six-speed gearbox is available as a manual or F1 electro-hydraulic manual. The car went into production in 1999 and was available until 2005 when it was replaced by the F430. The Modena was followed by the 360 Spider, Ferrari’s 20th road-going convertible.
The Ferrari F1 360 Modena Spider was one of the most technically advanced road vehicles available, taking much of its engineering from the then highly successful Ferrari Formula One racing car.
In the early days of motor racing the sport was used as a research and development tool for the motor industry’s regular road output. This has become less true with modern Formula One racing.
This car was once the property of Ross Brawn who was then Technical Director of the Ferrari Formula One Race Team.
