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.

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.

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.
