Comments:

The 360 Modena, the road-going successor to the F355, was unveiled in late
1998. The new car´s revolutionary advancements were more than just skin
deep, however. An all-new aluminium space-frame created through a
partnership with Alcoa resulted in a 10 percent reduction in weight and a
nearly 50 percent gain in structural rigidity. This new stiffness
dramatically sharpened the mid-engined Ferrari´s handling. Curvaceous
Pininfarina-penned styling, a dramatic departure from the designs associated
with Ferrari since the late 1970s, helped usher the modern Ferrari into the
21st century.

The Challenge Series was born of a need for Ferrari to launch a racing
series for its competition-minded clients. Essentially factory-stock cars,
the Challenge Series 348, F355 and then 360s were stripped of most of their
unnecessary weight and given a high-performance suspension. It was then that
Team JMB Giesse took a 360 Challenge and modified it to the FIA´s newly
created GT regulations to compete against the Porsche GT3 in 2000. The car
proved so successful that the Ferrari factory commissioned Michelotto to
create a ´works` 360 GT, wich would be sold through Ferrari´s Corse Clienti
department. Later Michelotto further developed the 360 GTs into what is
considered the ultimate specification and fastest 360, known as the 360
N-GT. In N-GT specification, Michelotto boosted the 360´s 3.6-liter V8 to
430 horse- power, an impressively high figure even with the required 30.8mm
air restrictors. To match the power upgrade, a sequential gearbox was fitted
to the N-GTs, giving the car blisteringly quick gear changes. Michelotto
tightened the suspension with stiffer shocks and springs, added an
adjustable anti-roll bar and removed all non-essential weight. With wider
fenders and spoilers front and rear, the 360 N-GT was approximately 200
pounds lighter than the 360 Challenge.

Chassis 012293 was modified by Michelotto to N-GT specification for
competition in the GT championship, and was campaigned by former Spanish GT
champion Gines Vivancos of Darro Motor Racing during the 2001 and 2002
season as well as several races in the 2003 season. The car´s racing career
ended in 2004 when it was entered in the Spanish round of the FIA GT
Championship, with Gines Vivancos again at the wheel. The Ferrari 360 N-GT
presented here is Chassis No. 004 of just 20 examples modified by Michelotto
in late 2001 for the 2002 season. The car on offer is a virgin one owner
from new car coming from the estates of Gines Vivancos which is documented
by the original Bill of Sale, Spanish title and the service records coming
with the car.

Finished in Rosso Corsa, this particular car benefits from a fully
race-outfitted interior, including a full roll cage, racing seat, and
harness. The car is presented in its Darro Motor Racing livery, although
this could easily be altered to reflect a change in future sponsorship.
Well-suited for the enthusiast seeking to explore the tremendous performance
on offer in a modern Ferrari, this 360 GT offers the unique opportunity to
acquire a track-ready product born from the collaboration between Ferrari
and the respected Michelotto company.
One owner from new.
