Overview

For anyone unfamiliar with the history of the marque, it’s difficult to explain what a departure the 360 was for Ferrari. It’s with good reason that many consider it to be the first truly modern machine to emerge from Maranello. From its all-aluminium construction to the smooth, aerodynamically efficient styling and, of course, the implementation of the now de rigueur “F1” paddleshift transmission, every aspect of the 360 was fresh, exciting and finely tuned to deliver knockout performance. Of course, there are hints at the history of Italy’s greatest car maker (the side intakes pay clear homage to the 250LM and the Dino), but this is an unapologetically modern form – and all the better for it.

As we all know, you buy a Ferrari engine and the rest of the car just happens to come with it. And what an engine you’re buying here: 3.6-litres of naturally aspirated, free-revving V8 brutality. It delivers a fiercely addictive banshee howl as it bends physics to catapult the car from a standstill to 60mph in less than 4.5 seconds. Having been very lightly used and carefully maintained, with a full recent service and Classiche inspection by Carrs Ferrari costing over £7,500 to get into top condition providing extra confidence, this magnificent quad-cam masterpiece should provide many more years of breath-taking thrills and face-splitting grins.

With early models such as this one now well over 20 years old, great examples are becoming fewer and further between. Which is what makes this such an exceptional machine. With genuine low mileage, an excellent record of maintenance and a truly superb specification, we think you’ll have to go a very long way indeed to find a better example of this modern classic.

We believe that the 360’s time has come – increasingly sought after and sure to be regarded as an era-defining model in the history of the prancing horse, this is the perfect way to park one of Ferrari’s finest in your collection. A LHD model could well be a wise investment, with the potential to export to the USA at it’s 25 year birthday on 23 March 2026. As few 360s got to the USA the market is exceptional strong.

  • The vendor tells us that the paintwork will be machine polished and any stone chips sorted prior to sale
  • The body is constructed from aluminium panels over an all-aluminium monocoque chassis (at the time a first for a Ferrari production car), and all the panels show very well, with no corrosion, dents or scuffs we could see

  • The crackle red finish of the plenums looks perfect, as does the cast alloy bridge featuring the Cavallino Rampante
  • With a recent cambelt service and such low mileage, this box-fresh 360 is raring and ready to go
  • We’re assured by the vendor that the car drives “perfectly” with absolutely no mechanical issues whatsoever

Summary

Far more capable than the 355 it replaced, the 360 was Ferrari stamping its mark on the early 21st century, putting all the other supercar makers on notice that it intended to be just as dominant in the new century as it had in the previous one.

Thankfully, the 360 delivers on that promise. It’s a magnificent supercar, and this is a sublime example. One that could happily take pride of place in any collection you care to mention. Whether you’re looking for an appreciating asset that you can enjoy on high days and holidays, or you simply want a stunning example of the breed, this beautifully preserved example simply has to be considered.
