000GTM has the very late specifications including the desirable Hewland 6 speeds sequential gearbox.
This is a truly unique opportunity to acquire an important piece of Ferrari racing history and the very first of Michelotto’s fabulous Ferrari Berlinetta V8.
In the end of the 90s Ferrari was not motivated with other racing programs than the F1 and the Challenge series. With the launch in 1999 from the 360 Modena there was however a great basis for a new GT race car and a proper racing program. After racing successfully 333 SPs in the FIA Sport Cars championship and Le Mans, JMB Racing who had developed a close relationship with Ferrari and Michelotto finally got the authorization to develop and race 360s in the new FIA – N/GT category. Originally Ferrari being reluctant, only 3 cars were built for the 2000 FIA GT season, numbered 000/001/002GTM. After a difficult start the performance and reliability came and in 2001 JMB won both FIA N/GT driver and team titles. This great result encouraged Ferrari to build a proper customer program for the 360 in FIA N/GT & ACO GTLM, in 2002 the car was then available for private teams and a total of about 20 cars were built until 2005 and the replacement by the F430 GT. This was the start of a new area for Ferrari in GT and the success story continued with the 430, 458 and 488s.
