Intended as successor to the F355, the 360 Modena 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.
Ferrari 360 is 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 400bhp+ and accelerating from 0-62mph in 4.3 secs. All have eight-cylinder engines and aluminum chassis.
