Ferrari 360

The Ferrari 360 is a mid-ingine midsize twa-seater sports caur produced frae late 1999 till 2005. The 360 replaced the Ferrari F355 an wis itself replaced bi the fairly similar Ferrari F430. For the 360, Ferrari partnered with Alcoa to produce an entirely new all-aluminum space-frame chassis that wis 40% stiffer than the F355, yet 28% lighter despite a 10% increase in overall dimensions. Along with the new frame wis a new Pininfarina body styling that broke ranks with the last decade’s sharp angles an flip-up headlights, replacing them with a roondit appearance that harkened to the 1960s. The new V8 engine, common to all versions, was only slightly lairger an more pouerful than the F355’s at 3.6 litres an 400#160;bhp (300#160;kW) o pouer, but the lighter frame an added stiffness improved performance; the 0 to 60 (0 to 100#160;km) acceleration performance improved frae 4.6 to 4.4 seconds. An engine replacement resulted in the V8 road model that followed, the F430 (internally referred to as the evoluzione or evo ) which came oot in 2004.

Nine versions o the basic 360 war produced, o which sax war road models:

360 Modena . a fixed roof twa-door luxury sports coupe, available with a 6-speed manual or F1 electrohydraulic manual

360 Spider . a convertible variant o the Modena

Challenge Stradale . an F1 electrohydraulic manual 360 Challenge inspired variant o a 360 Modena.

360 Modena F1

360 Spider F1

360 Challenge . a 360 F1 electrohydraulic manual stripped oot circuit racin variant o the 360 Modena .

360 GT . a GT racin variant o the 360 challenge race caurs, more extreme than a Challenge.

360 GT-C . based on the 360 GT with 360 CS parts to compete in the N-GT class.

The nint version, 360 Barchetta . wis a ane-off wedding present frae Ferrari to Ferrari president Luca di Montezemolo .

Road models [ edit ]

The first model o the 360 to ship wis the 360 Modena . named efter the toun o Modena. the birthplace o Enzo Ferrari. Its sax-speed gearbox is available as a manual. or F1 electrohydraulic manual. The caur went into production in 1999 an remained in production until 2005 when it wis replaced bi the F430. The Modena wis followed bi the 360 Spider . Ferrari’s 20t road-going convertible. Ither than weight, the Spider’s specifications match those o the Modena almost exactly. The Challenge Stradale (or CS ) wis a later addition to the road line. It wis essentially a lightened version o the Modena, droppin 110 kilograms an drastically improvin its handlin through optimizions such as uprated titanium springs (lowering unsprung weight), stiffer bushes (frae 360 Challenge caurs) an uprated rear anti roll bar (the same anti-roll bar as uised on 430 Scuderia). Changes included lairger 19 BBS wheels, the uise o carbon fiber for the frames o the seats an mirrors, titanium springs which wur also 20% stiffer, an Carbon fibre-reinforced Silicon Carbide (C/SiC) ceramic composite brake disks. A variety o option allowed for further weight reductions, including replacing the leather interior with fabric, removal o the pouer windows an mirrors, an deletion o the stereo. Lexan side windows wur available in Europe anerlie. It wis offeecially introduced in Mairch 2003 at the Geneva International Motor Show an went into production shortly thereafter. The CS can be compared to Porsche’s GT3 RS model in design approach an mony magazines hae placed them head to head in road tests. Jeremy Clarkson compared the twa an chose the CS to be his favourite.
