In terms of mechanics, does anyone have a list of the main differences between the 360 Modena and 360 Challenge?

little soundproofing, no carpets, bit more HP, slightly quicker TCU for shift speeds, about 130 lbs net weight diff, larger grille openings on Challenge grille, different exhaust, and very LOUD inside!

The 360 Challenge could be distinguished from the Modena externally with the Challenge grill, larger 18inch BBS alloys, a slightly lower ride height and of course the racing style windows replacing the electric windows of the Modena.

As far as I can remember the engine was left standard and produces the same 400bhp as the Modena. If not mistaken the F1 gearbox in the Challenge changes gears in 110ms thanks to the remapped ECU, where as the F1 gearbox in the Modena changed gears in 150ms. The Challenge gearbox compared to the Modena is also fitted with its own oil cooler to reduce operating temperatures.

The Challenge suspension replaced the electronic damping system with racing Boge shock absorbers, has stiffer racing springs and aluminium suspension bushes. All the interior luxury was taken out of the Challenge version which resulted in a 120kg weight reduction compared to the Modena.

Rims are same widths as the Modena.

Not aware of any w/18" rims though.

HP was up 20.

Remember that there is considerable difference of Challenge car from the Stradale.

The rims are actually 0.5" wider allowing for fitment of wider tires which helps with grip levels as well as being quite a bit lighter too.

Trev- Good to see you over here.

What we have here is a failure to communicate (great movie line). Some folks are talking about the street Challenge Stradale, and some folks are talking about the track-only 360 Challenge.

Since Boxer is way smarter than I am, I assume he actually meant the race car 360 Challenge. If not, he can chime in and correct us and I will loan him my 360 CS hardbound sales brochure. The Challenge Stradale and 360 Challenge parts books are both on Ricambi's site and give a pretty good look at what changes were made, but Trev's list is much easier to read for the race car.

Just back from the Ferrari Finals in Mugello. This morning I was comparing a friend's CS wth a standard Modena next to it.

I would add to the list of differences:

Front bumper is slightly different (more angular at the lower part)
Suspension settings: Lower and more negative camber.
Mirrors
Rear diffuser.

Current & past: 365 GT 2+2, 550 Maranello, F430 Scuderia
Other: Mercedes 230 SL 'Pagode', BMW M3 E30 Evo II, Lancia Delta Integrale Evo 2 and a few other toys.

+1, I was referring to the race car - 360 Challenge.

Saw one on Thursday at Brands. Brought back some very fine memories. Great car, built like a rock, quick, and capable of being driven hard all day long.

You know what, I just don't actually buy this weight loss at all.

The Challenge cars saved at least x2 or even x3 the weight of the CS over the Modena so I'm betting the 360 Challenge are substantially lower weight than a Stradale. I'm guessing at least 200-250kg's less than a typical Modena. They basically have no interior, no aircon, much less kit, etc.

Q. Did anyone corner weight a 360 Modena Challenge and happy to share their results?

Dont forget you have to add the weight of the roll cage in the case of the Challenge car.

Current & past: 365 GT 2+2, 550 Maranello, F430 Scuderia
Other: Mercedes 230 SL 'Pagode', BMW M3 E30 Evo II, Lancia Delta Integrale Evo 2 and a few other toys.

True, fair point, well made.

Perhaps its also that the 110kg's always quoted for the CS is just a 'best case scenario' where there is no leather, fitted with lexan side windows [no electric windows], smallest cf seats, no stereo, no roll bar, no extinguisher, etc. Possibly even no fuel. (how do we know what specs Ferrari tested it with?).

IMHO the typical challenge car weight is a lot less than a typical CS. Probably 100kg's+ less.
