Ferrar 360 N-GT at the Challenge and GT Days 2018

Ferrari F40 LM and F355 Challenge – what a combination

Thanks to Chris W. for the cool pic


In designing its 360 GTC, Ferrari had a lot of previous experience to build upon. After all, it had already made two race versions of the 360 Modena by the time the 360 GTC was introduced in 2003: the 360 Modena Challenge and the 360 GT.

Developed by Ferrari’s Corse Clienti department, the final race version of the 360 featured a host of improvements over its predecessor, resulting in the car’s homologation for the FIA GT Championships.

Ferrari 348 GT Competizione “ex Michel Oprey” Michelotto for sale at Springbok in Germany

All Details about the sale and other Challenge and GT Ferraris http://www.fchgt.com/cars-for-sale-3/
Chassis number #84248, 1 of 11 cars built by Michelotto. From the middle of 1993 it was possible to buy an off the shelf 348 competition car prepared by Ferrari’s favoured tuners, Michelotto. Suitable for several top racing series and in particular Blue Ribbon events such as Le Mans, Daytona and Sebring, these cars would be pitched up against the likes of Porsche’s mighty 911 RSR’s and the Venturi 400. Michelotto fitted hot 360bhp engines with reconfigured fuel mapping and F40 halfshafts into all Competizione’s, changes to the bodywork including a Lexan rear window and lightweight alloy panels for the front lid and engine cover.
Carbon composite was used for the doors, bumpers and undertray, supplementary ducts feeding cool air to the rear brakes. The brakes themselves were uprated 15-inch cross-drilled Brembo discs, wider Speedline five-spoke magnesium wheels being typically shod with slick Goodyear tyres. Michelotto uprated the suspension with fully adjustable Koni dampers and anti dive geometry, strengthening gussets having been installed around the engine bay. Cockpits were completely stripped and fitted with an FIA-spec roll cage, OMP race seats and occasionally, electric windows. Just eleven Michelotto Competizione’s were built, most going straight to collectors who rarely chose to race them.
In this case the car was purchased by the well known Ferrari collector Michel Oprey from the Netherlands. He raced the car in several races including among others the Ferrari-Porsche-Challenge from ‘94-’96. On the racetrack he replaced the car with a Ferrari F40 LM while keeping the 348 in his private collection. The current owner purchased the car directly from Michel Oprey. Due to new projects the owner has decided to offer the car for sale. The car has been returned to the livery of the 90’s when Oprey raced in the Netherlands and Germany. It comes with a second set of rims. This is a rare opportunity to buy one of the early cars built by Michelotto!
