2003 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale
Inspired by the 360 Modena Challenge racing car series, the Challenge Stradale is the track focused iteration of the 360 Modena. The focus in development of the car was primarily on improving its track performance credentials by concentrating on handling, braking and weight reduction characteristics, which are essential in pure racing cars. Ferrari engineers designed the car from the outset with a goal of 20% track day use in mind and 80% road use. With only a small 25 PS (18 kW; 25 hp) improvement in engine power from the Modena (and boasting an improved power-to-weight ratio), the Challenge Stradale accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.1 seconds according to Ferrari. Systematic improvements were achieved to the setup and feel of the whole car; throttle response from the digital throttle was ratcheted up and feedback through the steering wheel was enhanced. Ceramic brakes borrowed from the Enzo, some lower weight parts and a FHP handling pack, enabled the Challenge Stradale to claim a 3.5 second improvement per lap of its Fiorano Circuit compared to the Modena.
Bell Sport & Classic are delighted to offer what can only be described as the nicest example of a 360 CS we have come across in a very long time. One of the very limited number to ever be supplied through the UK Ferrari dealer network (@119 UK RHD Cars), from a total world wide run of @1288 units….making these one of the rarest & most desirable of the special series 8 cylinder Ferrari’s ever built.
Our example is finished in Argento Nurburgring with Nero Leather. Factory option list of the day was quite limited, & our car is fitted with Racing seats in ‘Sedili Taglia Large 360 CH Str’, Black Brake Calipers, All stitching in Grigio, Scuderia Shields to front wings, Factory Radio / speaker option. Factory stripe deletion. Having covered a mere 27,900 miles, & supported with a full service history, along with original books, tools, car cover & battery charger, this car really does warrant further inspection.
Part exchange welcome.
