|Such a big task replacing the highly successful 355 but again Ferrari rose to occasion by choosing the latest technology of Aluminium chassis and panels making the 360 a state of the art Supercar for 1999 launching at the Geneva motor show.
It was an instant success with buyer waiting two years for delivery and the speculative market paying fortunes over list price.
Dealers advised customers to order the paddle shift gearbox version called the F1 but wise buyers preferred the manual 6 speed with the unique metal gated gear change.
The production run lasted until late 2004 and then the Maserati engined 430 took over!
This is a stunning cherished example finished in the best combination of Rosso with Crema leather piped in red.
Only ever maintained at Ferrari main dealers every year despite low mileage the last one being in may this year which included cambelts.
On the road the 360 is light and nimble compared to the 355 and with 400 bhp very quick and precise.
Cruising at high speeds without uncomfortable noise was the aim and she is much more relaxing to drive than most frenetic supercars whilst still providing the necessary thrills.
