Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale (2004)
The ultimate racecar for the road. Just fully serviced including cambelt change.
The Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale was a limited lightweight and trackday focused version of the 360 Modena, and used to homologate a range of improvements to the GT Challenge racecar for the FIA GT2 race class. The car had a power increase up to 425 bhp in combination with a massive weight saving of 110 kg compared to a standard production 360 Modena (and only 20 kg more than the Challenge race car !). Further performance advantages came through a significant upgrade of the F1 gearbox software and the standard fitment of carbon ceramic brakes from the Ferrari Enzo. The car also received the same lightweight and aerodynamic bodykit as the Challenge race car, and looks and sounds like it is ready to win races. And on top of that it is fully street legal and ready for road use. With only around 1300 examples ever made, this is an instant classic and one of the greatest Ferrari's from the last couple of decades.
This example was delivered new on the 28th of January 2004 by Forza S.p.A in Turin (Italy). The car has a stamped service book, and has been maintained by Forza S.p.A, Thomas Sportwagen GmbH, Tamsen Ferrari and Eberlein Ferrari. It has just received another full service in the first week of May 2022 including the all important cambelt change, and is now 100% ready to be enjoyed by a new owner.
The Ferrari came with some interesting options like leather bucket seats and a factory applied Tricolore centre stripe. The car looks and drives fantastically, and is in immaculate condition. The Nero Daytona/Nero colour combination makes it both discrete and intriguing, and rather different from the more common Rosso Corsa examples.
This Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale is built in approximately the same numbers as the legendary Ferrari F40, and offers similar sensations at a fraction of the price. It will probably continue to increase in value as well due to its rarity and desirability, and will offer its new owner a tremendous driving experience in the meantime.
