360C for sale.

It's not getting any use and I don't foresee that changing anytime soon.

The only other choice is to keep it as garage art - which isn't what this car was built for.

This 360c is one of the best out there - it's fresh less than 100 miles on engine clutch and has 20k in spares including an engine that requires a rebuild - see below the engine is still at the shop but goes with the car.

I bought it after the previous owner had 124k in it and I dropped another 26k adding titanium wrap to the headers the car has been gone thru with a fine tooth comb by one of the best CCR racing support teams.

Also have a Trail - ex that is built for the 360C. 24k invested race ramps winch special straps.

Brand new seats and seat belts need to add a current picture vs the one below - new flywheel under carriage is perfect. Brand new radio Go Pro Cool Shirt set up.

This is a race ready 360C - fresh set of tires and new wheels second set with black powder coat also on new tires and wheels and 3rd set of Hoosiers. - another 10k of spares.

Below is the ad from e-bay when I purchased the car.

FOR SALE – 2000 Ferrari F360 Challenge Factory Race Car (GT Spec)
VIN# ZFFYR51B000122917

Assembly No. 39990

3.6 Liter V-8 - Newly Restored

For sale is a year 2000 Ferrari 360 Challenge car fully restored with a fresh engine and ready for the track. Note that this car IS NOT STREET LEGAL and has no official title. Buyer will be issued a legal, notarized Bill-of-Sale upon completion of purchase.

History for VIN 22917:

The 360 Challenge car for sale was originally sold and raced under the Ferrari of Washington banner and briefly competed in the Ferrari Challenge Series by a gentleman racer. The car was then upgraded to GrandAm specifications and competed in a handful of select GrandAm Rolex Series races as a GT class sports car with the requisite wing and additional modifications to make it more competitive than its factory spec-class configuration. It raced as a secondary team car alongside F.O.W.’s factory 360 N-GT. Upon retirement from its brief stint as world-class GT racer, the car was purchased by private owner who used the car solely as a practice race car to remain current while campaigning a F430 in the newly formed F430 Challenge Series. The car purchased and resold by an official Ferrari dealer to its third owner, a vintage racer and collector who used the car for a mere two track days before selling it to fourth and current owner. The current owner, an avid collector of sport, exotic, and notable race cars purchased the car in the Fall of 2010. Following the purchase, two years were spent to restore and improve the car. The car received a full repaint in its original PPG color, dated safety equipment including seat, safety harnesses, steering wheel, and fire suppression system were replaced with newly certified, modern equipment and enhancements were made to improve performance. The car was also improved by adding new Michelloto style N-GT front and rear bumpers, 360 CS side skirts and APR wing that was created through finite element analysis specifically for this car. The car has a cockpit controlled brake bias, and full F.I.A. certified roll bar with F.I.A. crush pads. After its two year restoration, the car was tested at Mid-Ohio, unfortunately, during the second lap, the car’s oil pump failed forcing the car back into the paddock to continue work. With only two laps testing, the car’s engine was pulled and replaced with a fresh motor. With the engine out, improvements were made to the exhaust system, clutch, radiators, and E.C.U. Now, one year later, the car is finished, practically like new, and ready to race. Other cars, interests and too little time force the sale of this beauty. With car’s infrequent use, and lengthy restoration process, very few miles and hours have been logged. Additionally, with the new motor, clutch, radiators and other restoration work, it is most likely one of the “freshest” 360 Challenge cars located in North America. There are zero hours logged since the restoration, only engine and systems test time, no laps taken since restored.

Key Facts:

Exhaust:

Custom Agency Power Headers with Ceramic Coating

Fabspeed Cat-delete pipes

Custom HMF Engineering “X”-Pipe exhaust with twin through-bumper exit tips (N-GT style)

Engine:

Fresh motor fully serviced, new belts, tensioners, seals. (Note that this motor was purchased from Gallo Competition in January 2013 as a long-block crate motor). The original motor is currently being re-built by Earl Gibbs of Northcoast Exotics and will be available for sale upon completion to the new owner or offered for sale separately. Price is to be determined once it is completed. The original will be sold as a long-block plus all associated parts including injectors, intake manifold, air plenum, distributor, starter, etc. - basically a fully functioning new engine.)

Brand new custom Wizard Cooling race radiators (all aluminum construction, far better than stock!
New Factory 360 Challenge clutch
Re-calibrated E.C.U.’s performed by Mase Engineering (Jacksonville, FL)
New Hoosier slicks (100 compound) – used only in the paddock, never raced

Other:

Note that the graphics pictured in the photographs are removable vinyl. There are no fade marks, scratches or discoloration on the paint, these graphics can be changed and removed easily.


360 Modena Challenge – A Brief History and Specifications

Based on the 360 Modena road car, the 360MC (Modena Challenge) was an extensively reworked, non-road legal car intended to compete in Ferrari's one-make racing series called the 'Ferrari Challenge’. It was only available with the F1 Gearbox. At the time of launch, Ferrari claimed the 360MC accelerated from 0 to 62 mph in 3.9 seconds (0.6 seconds quicker than the standard 360 Modena F1) and could corner and brake significantly faster than the road car. Brembo racing provided the upgraded Gold colored calipers and larger floating 2-piece discs, while Bosch provided race tuned ABS software. The exhaust system was lightened substantially and was one of the main contributions to the increased horsepower over stock engine (as ignition mapping was claimed to virtually be the same). For the road cars (even the Challenge Stradale) Ferrari used a valve system which made the car more socially acceptable at lower revs (and therefore able to pass drive-by noise tests).

Unlike the previous Challenge car series, which utilized a F355 road car with a dealer-installed 'challenge upgrade' kit, the 360 MC was a factory built track car, which allowed greater weight reduction efforts. The enhanced driving characteristics and substantial weight reduction meant the car could comfortably outperform its road-going counterpart even though power from the 3.6 engine was claimed to be similar.

The 360MC featured a stripped-down race-car interior with the stereo, electric windows and locks, soundproofing, airbags, air-conditioning, and even the handbrake removed. The seats and restraints were replaced by a single carbon fiber racing seat and FIA approved restraint harnesses, and a roll cage was fitted for safety along with a fire suppression system. The instrument cluster was reworked with a monochrome LCD to display vital engine data. The adaptive suspension of the road car was replaced by adjustable racing dampers, while larger brakes with extra cooling ducts were added.

Original Official Performance figures:

Power (SAE net) : 410 bhp (306 kW; 416 PS) @ 8500 rpm (Now re-tuned to 428 H.P.)
Torque (SAE net) : 286 lbft (388 Nm) @ 4750 rpm (Now re-tuned to 401 N-m)
0–100 km/h (0-62 mph) : 3.9 sec
Top speed (limited) : 185 mph (298 km/h)
Kerb Weight : 1,250 kg (2,756 lb) (New official weight as measured is 2,697 with 56 pounds of fuel and all fluids – no driver)
Dry Weight : 1,169 kg (2,577 lb)

Actually at NOLA it was in limp mode few laps but not many then it happened again at COTA same results. When I was heading back to COTA an ice storm caused me to turn around and miss what would have been my first full weekend with the car.

Being in the midwest and the race teams and races on the South and East Coast it's a lot of traveling / shipping the car around and coordination.

Goal was to purchase two and enjoy the sport with my son - at some point that's the goal so letting it go is a bit painful. That's the other reason I wanted the best one out there.

The 360 IMO is the best Challenge Car for non professionals.

Thanks - wanted to offer the 360C to members here first.

Most CCR guys are on f-chat - recently learned a member here who is a "mod" offered his white 355 over there. Would have been nice to know as it was a car I would have been very interested in hopefully he is no longer a moderator here as he displayed his true blue colors.

Anyway - I will leave it here for another week in hopes it foes to a member here then toss in on e-bay.

It's on e-bay very little interest.

I understand people don't want to pay a lot for a car that is going to get tracked but this one is special and well worth the money.

I will most likely end up dropping the price and be sorry it's gone

Ed my kids are out of college - funny story my daughter went to DU.

Got the first bill and although I wasn't happy thought it's well worth the cost. Got the second bill and again thought it's a good investment.

Got the third bill as it is a trimester school and thought this is NUTS - had no idea!

Concur. For cars like yours, eBay is simply vast but inexpensive advertising.

Of all the narcissists I know, I love me the most.
