Ferrari 360 Modena History, Specifications and Spares | GTO Classic Ferrari Parts

360 Modena

The 360 Modena was the first road-going Ferrari constructed entirely in aluminium including the monocoque chassis, bodyshell and suspension wishbones allowing weight-saving benefits and increased performance of previous mid-engine V8 cars. Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1999, the 360 Modena was a radical departure for Ferrari even down to the removal of the previously-iconic central egg crate “radiator” grille.

Replacing them are twin radiator inlet grilles, one either side, allowing airflow to pass under the raised centre section to feed via the flat bottom to the twin rear diffuser section, increasing downforce as the car’s speed increases. However, some retro detail was included, for example the engine compartment intakes in the rear wings that hinted of the Dino, plus the traditional paired rear light design.

The engine is a development of that designed for the F355 with a small increase in cubic capacity to 3.6 litres, hence the 360 model name. A longitudinally mid-mounted 90 degree V8 engine had an actual cubic capacity of 3586cc, with a bore and stroke of 85mm x 79mm, five valves per cylinder, twin overhead camshafts per bank, and dry sump lubrication.
