Finished in a beautiful shade of Argento Nurburgring the sleek Pininfarina line of this Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge are elegant but unmistakably focused. Void of numberplates and the traditional Scuderia Sheilds this Challenge car leaves passers by in doubt that it is a fully fledged racecar, with sliding lexan windows, quick release panels and an enormous set of slicks coiled around a set BBS Challenge wheels.

Having covered 6k miles exclusively on track condition of the car is good; showing no clear signs of damage panel gaps remain even whilst the paintwork shows with a metallic shine and a dusting of stonechips and light battle scars that add to the character of the thoroughbred track car.

Opening the door of the 360 Modena Challenge unveils a space worlds apart from the standard road car, with just the Nero alcantara dashboard and 360 Modena insignia the only things that remind you this Ferrari was originally designed for the road.

Stepping into the car, through the bolt-in OMP cage, is a delicate process that pays dividends once secured into the FIA spec seats, with an original OMP Challenge seat on the passenger side whilst the driver is treated to a full race spec Recaro Pro Racer 99 SPG. Flanking the alcantara steering wheel and full digital Magneti Marelli display a set of aluminium F1-style ‘paddles’ which feel much more robust than the standard car for full confidence at maximum attack on the track.

Having raced in the Challenge series for a number of years this example interior of the car is an uncompromising space, with no sound proofing and just lexan windows to provide some essential ventilation the only luxuries come in the form of safety equipment including OMP kill switches, 5-point harnesses, and a full fire suppression system.

Longitudinally mounted behind the cabin 3.6-litre F131B V8 engine remains mechanically very similar to the road going 360, however when equipped with the full Challenge exhaust system, which doesn’t need to apply to the same emissions standards, output is increased from the standard car to 410bhp. This example is currently fitted with a 360 stainless exhaust system to meet UK track noise regulations, however the Challenge system will be provided with the car.

With the extra power and a 240kg weight saving over the standard 360 performance is also dramatically increased – whilst top speed remains at 186mph, the lightening fast F1 electro-hydraulic gearbox means 0-60mph is slashed to just 3.9 seconds.

With less than 7k miles shown on the computer and a recent full service by a Ferrari/race specialist SMDG this example wants for nothing and is ready for the next owner to take straight to their nearest circuit.

Completing the focused set up of this 360 Modena Challenge, the lightweight 18″ BBS Challenge wheels are slightly smaller than those found on the road going Challenge Stradale, allowing for a larger profile full slick tyre for superior track performance. This example is fitted with a matching set of Yokohama Advan full slicks.

Brakes are also uprated, with large Brembo callipers and discs providing immense stopping power. Adjustable racing dampers replace the 360’s adaptive suspension, providing a significant weight saving and a much more controlled ride around the track.

Supplied new to the United States in February 2002, as one of less than 200 cars worldwide, this stunning 360 Modena Challenge car was ordered new by renowned collector Steven Goldman, who used the car is a number of Ferrari Challenge Series races, documented and photographed between 2002-2006. From this point it is thought the car then resided as part of his Malibu based collection in a purpose built $10 million facility.

Purchased from the collection by the current owner in 2018 the car was then imported to the UK before being fully serviced by marque specialists SMDG who carried out a full inspection and service including a full fluid change, new cam/auxiliary belts and fitment of a 360 stainless exhaust system to meet UK track noise regulations, however the Challenge system will be provided with the car.

Having covered just 6,661 miles to date this Ferrari 360 Modena Challenge now sits as a taxes paid, highly original, low mileage, factory built race car which is ready for its next owner to thoroughly enjoy
