The Ferrari 360 'Challenge' is the race-modified model of the hugely popular Ferrari 360 Modena road car. The 360 Challenge was a significantly modified, non-road legal car, originally designed for use in Ferrari's popular racing series the 'Ferrari Challenge'. When the car was first introduced, Ferrari claimed that the 360 Challenge boasted a quicker acceleration time of 3.9s from 0 to 62 mph along with substantially better cornering ability over the standard road car due to enhanced racing suspension and brakes.
Unlike its predecessors, the 360 Challenge was the first 'Challenge' series car that was a factory built and supplied race car, as opposed to a road car with a 'Challenge' upgrade kit. This meant greater weight reduction could be achieved, which when combined with the improved handling features, allowed the car to easily outperform its road counterpart - despite having a similar power output.
This particular 360 Challenge was supplied new in 2000 to a UK driver to campaign in the Ferrari Challenge, which it did successfully for three seasons before being sold to the current President of the UK Ferrari Owners Club. During his tenure, the car has been used sparingly for the odd track day.
Our vendor purchased the car in 2016 and fully recommissioned it ready for a dual assault on both the AMOC GT Challenge and the Ferrari Club Racing Series. Ready to be used on circuit once again, this car would be eligible for the aforementioned championships or simply be enjoyed as a fabulous track day toy. A history file is supplied with the car and contains race results and setup data and a spares package is available by separate negotiation.
