Ferrari 360 Modena Reviews
Technologically the 360 heralded the start of a recent method of vehicle design at Ferrari. Contemporary, lightweight and advanced, it featured the firm's first aluminium spaceframe chassis, that was 40 per cent lighter-than the 355's metal stage but also almost 30 per cent stiffer, despite being somewhat bigger.
A new word was also seen by the Modena introduced into Ferrari reviews: dependability. The engineering were more carefully thought through, which was (and is still) reflected in lower servicing charges than for before midengined Prancing Horses.
The end outcome was a 0-62mph time of only 4.5second and, if you were able to find someplace to do-it, a top rate of 183mph. Around 70 percent of 360 buyers chose to have their vehicles designed with the 'F1' automatic manual gearbox, which although great on the transfer and exceptional on track, could make lowspeed manoeuvring a bit tricky till you get the hang of it.
Actually, for regular use the 360 is just a little a mixed bag. The cottage is roomy and pleasant, making getting into and out fairly simple, and if you're not reversing, visibility is normally great.
A course - partial, strippedout special version, it obtained ceramic composite brakes and titanium road springs, which supplied legendary stopping power when warm. Inside there were cloth-covered carbon seats, as the Compact Disc player was deleted to conserve weight.View PhotosView Videos
