2001 Ferrari 360 Modena History
Ferrari replaced its F355 in 1999 with the aluminum-bodied and curvaceous 360 Modena coupe. Two years later, in 2001, a Spider version debuted. As promised, the Ferrari 360 offered a commensurate leap in performance over the F355 due to extensive use of aluminum throughout, as well as, a new 3.6-liter V-8 engine that produced 400 horsepower. A paddle, F-1 type 6-speed transmission became an option in 2000, joining the standard 6-speed manual unit. The car was capable of a 4.3 second 0-60 time.
This particular Ferrari was purchased by a Canadian from Vancouver BC, who serviced it under warranty in 2002 and 2003 at Ferrari & Maserati of San Diego CA. It is assumed that the car was originally purchased in San Diego CA because the original bill of Sale is in a Ferrari of San Diego envelope and then eventually imported to Vancouver BC Canada through Brian Jessel Ferrari. The original owner kept the car until November 2019 until it was passed to the second owner. The second owner traded the car to The Company of Cars in March 2020.
I always like the style of the 360 Modena and actually have a photograph of me sitting in a red 360 Modena at the Monterey Historics. I feel in love with the Grigio Alloy (silver-blue) color and vanilla interior. Very rare. You normally see black interiors. The car was in excellent condition for its year and paint is almost flawless. You have to look very carefully to see anything.
I was happy to see that the recommended maintenance was done at Ferrari of Vancouver and Company of Cars (copies provided). Fresh tires were put on the car when I purchased it. The car was imported through Sweetwater MT back to my home after the speedometer was reconfigured to meet NTSA standards. Since the car was built to Ferrari of North America standards it meets all emission and EPA requirements.
Why would I sell my dream car? Well, I am 6’5” tall and find the cockpit cramped. Reluctantly I need to sell it and purchase a car with more headroom. Probably a fast sedan. It has all the original books, tool kit, tire inflator, flask light and records which will be given to the successful buyer.
I will help the successful buyer with finding the right delivery trucking company, as I would only trust a few.
