Car feature: Ferrari 360 the best Ferrari for the money

Launched in 1999 and replacing the F355, the 360 reprecented a new era for Ferrari.
Gone were the pop-up headlights and angular shapes of the F355. Replaced by a curvier shape that hints to the 1960s.
Powered by a 3.6 litre V8, the 360 was a quick car capable of doing 100 km/h in 4.5 seconds and a top speed of 295 km/h.
The engine was very high reving, producing 400 horsepower at 8500 rpm and 379 nm of torque at 4750 rpm.
It was possible to chose between both a traditional gated gearbox and an F1 padleshift.

There were three versions of the 360: the 360 Modena coupe, the 360 Spider and the hight performance Challenge Stradale.
The Challenge Stradale was a racecar for the road with carbon breaks, increased power and reduced weight compared to the Modena and Spider.
The 360 remained in production untill it was replaced by the F430 in 2005.

With current older Ferrari prices at a high level, the 360 is probaby the best buy right now.
Not only do you get the Ferrari experience, you also have a far more modern car than the F355 and Testarossa.
It is also considerably cheaper than its replacement the F430.
