Have you tried the FOC? It might be confidential data under the Data Protection Act, but then again they might be able to point you in the direction of a registry.
Alternatively, if it's been serviced at a main dealer they might have some records on their computers.
What info are you after? Prev owners details, mileage, MOT's, servicing, maintenance, crash damage or repairs..etc?

Yeah I am looking for that kind of detail... The problem I have is that I am looking to purchase the car and it is missing a major chunk of servicing. The car missed services for a period from 7,300 miles to 18,000. For me this seems a big gap and with Ferrari you just never know.

I was really hoping someone here may have stumbled across it and could tell me a bit about the car or previous owners???

I guess thats maybe a little hopeful!

Chris

Where is the car and is it RHD or LHD. If RHD then Ferrari UK will have some information on it as they would have originally sold the car.

Tut, tut! He has posted the VIN (albeit incorrectly starting with a '2' rather than a 'Z'). A 'C' as the eighth character indicates a UK spec RHD car. How disappointing you missed that!

The FOC do have some history on the car (and pictures). It is a red 360 Modena (manual) with cream interior. You can call the Club office on 01485 544 500. They cannot give out contact details (for owners etc.) but can pass on correspondence. Alternatively you can ask them to put you in touch with John Gould, the Club Registrar. I believe he knows this car as the photographs of it in the FOC Register were, I think, taken by him.
