Ferrari 360 GT

Ever since 1993, Ferrari’s V8 mid-engined berlinetta models have provided the ideal basis for a single-make racing series that has demonstrated itself the ideal springboard for many Ferrari drivers to further motor sports experience.

With the launch of the 360 Modena Challenge in 2000, the level of competitiveness of the Ferrari Challenge series took a huge step forward. Along with the F50, the 360 Modena was instrumental in pushing the boundaries of road-car production ever closer to the company’s racing roots, with uncompromising engineering and, in particular, levels of aerodynamic development previously unheard of on a series production car.

Early development work on the Challenge version of the car was extremely promising, with the 360 proving lighter, faster and sharper-handling than the outgoing F355.

Since the introduction of the 360 Modena, Ferrari has received numerous requests for factory-prepared cars for other international championships. With the help of factory backing, the JMB Competition team 360 fought off the Porsche competition to take the 2001 FIA N-GT World Championship team and drivers’ titles.

On the strength of this showing, Ferrari has decided to produce a specific model – the 360 GT – derived from the Challenge car for privateers in the FIA N-GT and A.C.O. (Automobile Club de l’Ouest) championships in 2002. Production will be strictly limited to around 30 cars over the next three years and the ex-factory price (ie. excluding tax and delivery) is 382,000 Euros for the FIA version, and 402,000 Euros for the ACO version. The two versions differ exclusively for the aerodynamic packages and, in the case of the FIA car, the adoption of the F1-style shift.

自1993年起,法拉利的V8中置发动机跑车为统一规格系列赛车活动提供了理想基础,成为许多法拉利驾驶者更进一步追求运动跑车体验的绝佳平台。

随着2000年360 Modena Challenge的推出,法拉利Challenge系列的竞争级别就更上了一层楼。360 Modena与F50一起,凭借其毫不妥协的工程特性,有力推动了公路版跑车的生产,甚至接近于法拉利公司作为立身之本的赛车生产,尤其是其在空气动力学 领域的水平,在先前所有量产车基础上达到了前所未有的飞跃。

该车型Challenge版本的早期开发工作成果颇丰,与逐渐隐退的F355相比,360重量更轻、速度更快并且更易于操控。

自推出360 Modena之后,法拉利收到了许多请求,要求工厂准备赛车参加其它国际锦标赛。在工厂的支持下,JMB车队驾驶360击败保时捷(Porsche)车队,赢得2001 FIA N-GT世界锦标赛车队和车手总冠军称号。

在这场胜利之后,法拉利决定生产一款特别的车型 – 360 GT – 源自Challenge车型,供2002年FIA N-GT和A.C.O. (Automobile Club de l’Ouest) 锦标赛中的车手们驾驶参赛。产量在之后三年中严格限制为30辆,出厂价 (不包括税收和运送费用)FIA版本为382,000欧元,ACO版本为402,000欧元。两个版本的空气动力套件有所不同,FIA版本的车型采用了 F1风格的换挡。
