Ferrari 360 Spider
– Designing a car based on aerodynamics is for people that can’t build engines – Enzo Ferrari
The Ferrari 360 Spider. As far as we are concerned, this is one of the last real Ferrari’s. Nowadays you get into Ferrari with the Portofino, with a 570 hp turbo engine. The Portofino has bluetooth, an automatic two-zone air conditioning system and resonance speakers in the inlet to emphasize sportsmanship. Nowadays the speed is relative and looks beautiful on paper, but lacks experience. This used to be different; a screaming, high speed engine and the sloshing cooling water you hear behind your back. And above all the feeling that you, as the driver, make the difference, not the technique.
For us, the 360 is an example where Ferrari applied modern techniques, but also focused on the experience. When you get in, you have few options or buttons that distract you. It’s all about driving and the emotion that comes with it. The snerp of the 3.6 litre V8 is incorrigible. Only at 8,500 RPM all 400 rising horses are released. The Ferrari 360 convertible was christened Modena (Spider), named after the birthplace of Enzo Ferrari.
Pinifarina once again proved herself with the design of the 360. The frame consists entirely of aluminium and the coach has almost no spoilers or other ostentatious elements. This was thanks to the closed base plate, which provides downforce at higher speeds.
Our 360 Spider is originally from Belgium and has driven only 35 thousand kilometres. All her booklets are present of course and have an extensive history.
Looking for a down-to-earth, no-nonsense supercar with looks that get better every year? An atmospheric engine that unfortunately has to place itself on the list of ‘endangered species’ but that sounds and performs unbeatable? This is it. With us in the clubhouse!
