Ferrari 360 Modena

In 2020 I bought a Ferrari 360 Modena to replace my Lotus Esprit. After 16 years of Lotus ownership I wanted a change and I was interested to see what the competition was like! Having spent many years deriding Ferrari as the obvious choice of sports car, I went and bought one. Middle age has a lot to answer for!

My car is Ferrari 360 Modena, with an F1 gearbox and was made in early 2000. It came with a full service history and services by a Ferrari main dealer for the last 8 years. The car is fitted with a Challenge Stradale rear panel, for better engine heat dispersion and a Tubi exhaust system, which is far to loud than the standard exhaust. The car handles beautifully through corners and there is lots of grip from the Pirelli P Zero tires. The performance is very impressive, with linear acceleration, something quite different to the Lotus Esprit Turbo, that has turbo lag. I am really enjoying driving it

The Rosso Corsa paintwork was looking a little tired, so I had the Ferrari paint mopped and then ceramic coated. The swirl marks were removed and the paint looks much more vibrant and glossy.

The front seat side bolsters were looking worn and cracked, so I had these restored by Leather Repair Master in Reading. They removed a couple of scratches on the seat too. They did an excellent job and a perfect colour match and not to expensive.

July 2021

Had a great day at Stonor Supercar Sunday in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. There was a great selection of the cars there and I was very proud to display my Ferrari.

The car was taken to QV London for a service. They commented on it's great condition and say they couldn't fault it.
