Model History:
The history of the 360 GT begins with Team JMB Giesse who created a modified challenge car to race in the 2000 FIA N-GT Championship. After a short season by JMB, Ferrari then decided to test an official 360 GT for the 2001 season. Since this time, 360 GTs have been extensively raced at ACO and FIA events.

2001 was somewhat of a test year for Ferrari to see if the 360 GT would be a viable solution to the Porsche GT3. By March of that year, Ferrari delivered the first 360 GT, #118775, to Michelotto. They updated the aerodynamics package before it was sold to Team JMB Giesse for the 2001 season. It was this car, in green and red livery, that raced every round of the 2001 FIA Championship.

During the 2001 FIA season, Team JMB Giesse raced a against close competition. The first 360 international GT victory was attained during the second round of the series, where JMB took a class win. This sparked a series of wins which would put JMB Giesse near the top of N-GT. At the final round in Estoril, both JMB and RWS Motorsport, with a Porsche GT3, were in contingency for the championship. With three cars, JMB blitzed Estoril to secure the championship.

After JMB’s championship win, Ferrari was then provided with the motivation to move forward with 360 GT production. In February of 2002, Ferrari announced they would sell 360 GTs through their Corse Clienti Department.
The 2002 Ferrari 360 GT is very much like the cars that JMB raced in 2001. Again, Michelotto is responsible for the body developments which hold Pininfarina’s original lines. Bodywork revisions include a NACA duct on front lid for interior cooling, wider front and rear fenders, a larger, more developed rear wing and a new front valance which can support the optional driving lights.

As for mechanics, Ferrari has considered every component. The engine features, high-lift camshafts, lighter pistons, reshaped combustion chambers and re-mapped mototronics. Even with two 30.8mm air restrictors, the engine produces 430HP. This is a remarkable figure given that air restrictors stop about half of the air reaching throttle bodies.
The suspension remains similar to the production 360, having harder springs, shocks and an adjustable anti-roll bar. Like every racecar the 360 GT is stripped of its interior luxuries with all non-essential components removed. The gauges are replaced with a digital display and a full roll cage is installed.

The introduction of the 360 GT came with Ferrari of Washington, who have campaigned one of the first GTs arriving through official threads. It was chassis #005M, number 33, which they raced in the 2002 Rolex Grand-Am Championship.
At the first series race, the 24 hours of Daytona, Ferrari of Washington placed 14th in class behind a slew of Porsche GT3s. Since Daytona, Ferrari of Washington have proven the 360GT as a world-class, endurance race car. The team has taken first in class in five of the ten scheduled Grand-Am races. This secured the overall class win for Ferrari of Washington over Perspective Racing’s Mosler MT900 and the Racers Group Porsche GT3 RS. While the Grand-Am series was underway, Team JMB were also campaigning their 360 GTs in the 2002 FIA GT Championship. The season ended on October 20th with team JMB unable to secure the 2002 class championship.

Specific history of this car:
Chassis 2028 was built by Michelotto for the ACEMCO Racing team for the 2003 American Le Mans Series (ALMS) season. Finished in silver with yellow stripes, the car raced successfully with the drivers Davis / Lewis and Borcheller.
In 2005 the car was offered for sale in Australia for well over $500.000.

In the capable hands of its new owners, the car won 2007 the Australian GT championship with CCC Racing.
Now, imported back to Europe, the car is fully EU duties paid and benefits from a recent service, it is now in track ready condition. Also the car comes with an extensive history file which includes a lot of period documentation, several invoices as well as its original 360 GT Michelotto leather pouch.

This is a rare opportunity to purchase one of the finest examples of the 20 original 360 GTs.
