Ferrari is a brand built on front-engine V-12 touring cars. But a few decades ago, its mid-engine V-8 sports cars became the Prancing Horse’s real money makers, and now it’s make-or-break every time a new one debuts. This was especially true in 1999, when it came time to replace the F355. The car had been well loved, the best-selling Ferrari of all time at that point, and a hit with the automotive press as well. But the F355 was based on the 348, and a design dating back to 1989, and it was getting a little long in the tooth.

Ferrari’s replacement for the F355 was the 360, the first car the company made out of aluminum, and just from looking at it, it’s obvious that the mid-engine V-8 berlinetta was completely rethought for this car. The naming scheme was changed for the 360 as well. The F355 got its name from having a 3.5-liter engine with 5 valves per cylinder. The new version of the engine was 3.6 liter and still had five valves per cylinder, but there already were quite a few Ferrari models called 365, so the whole of the name comes from the engine’s total displacement, a first for a Ferrari V-8 model.

Video: Guy Invites 20 Of His Friends To Drive His Ferrari

If you want to know it means to be a true car enthusiast, you need to hear this story about Doug Demuro. Doug used to work for Porsche PR, but now he is a writer like all of us here at TopSpeed. Well, just like us except he also owns a Ferrari. This is where the story gets interesting.

You see, Doug hates people that own these amazing cars that only hoard them. You know the guys – if you look at their car wrong, they make sure you understand that it is their car and you are to come nowhere near it.

The problem with that is it’s cars like this that bring people into our automotive world. Kids don’t excited about seeing a Camry, but when they see a Ferrari, they suddenly know why cars are cool. Doug decided that the best way to share his automotive fortune would be to, well, share it. He found 20 different friends and let each one drive his shiny red Ferrari 360 Modena.

Best of all, he had the foresight to film the whole adventure. The car comes away 100 percent unhurt, so if you wanted to see scraped paint, look elsewhere. What actually happened is 20 people experienced a life-changing drive in a Ferrari, and it is beautiful.

My hat is off to you, Doug. Oh, and the next time you want to try this, just give me a call.

SeriousHP’s Turbo Kit can Nearly Double the Ferrari 360 Modena’s Horsepower

The Ferrari 360 Modena is out at the picture from quite some time now (ever since 2005), but we are pretty sure that some of you are driving one and want to upgrade its output level. For those of you interested, Texas-based tuner, SeriousHP, has developed a turbo kit that will almost double the engine’s output.

Your stock Ferrari 360 Modena is powered by a 3.6-liter naturally aspired V-8 engine that delivers a total of 405 horsepower. SeriousHP’s turbo kit increases the output up to an astounding 791 horsepower. That’s a monstrous 95.3-percent horsepower increase.

In order to obtain this outrageous bump, the tuner will install a new turbocharging system, forged pistons, an upgraded fuel system, Pro-Efi 128 engine management, ceramic coated 67-66 Precision Turbo billet and a reinforced transmission.

With the extra power, the 360 Modena will run the quarter mile in just 10 seconds and will be capable o hitting a top speed of 190 mph. If you want to order this amazing tuning kit, you will have to shell out $38,000. For the upgrades it includes, we think that’s a bargain.

Sure, that sight could very well be a mirage playing tricks on your mind, but in this case, it’s all too real.

From the professional lens of ItzKirb Photography comes this awesome set of photos featuring one of the most legendary modern-day Ferraris with the hot lady with a smile that could melt a popsicle in the wintertime.

While the identity of the woman wasn’t divulged, it’s not that hard to paint a picture of this black-haired vixen playing around with an Italian supercar that looks like its enjoying her company.

Ferrari 360 and Maserati GranTurismo with Sexy Models

What’s better than one Italian thoroughbred? We know the answer to that one. Two!

But what’s better than two Italian thoroughbreds? A little tricky, but if you’re answer involves the names Heather Doss and Ashley Valderrama, then you get the jackpot!

So here’s where we’re at: it’s a photoshoot that has a Ferrari 360 and a Maserati GranTurismo. On top of that, we have a pair of too-hot-for-words models in the form of Heather Doss and Ashley Valderrama.

It doesn’t even matter where this shoot took place - apparently, it’s somewhere in the US - what’s important is that this intoxicating combination of Italian exotics and American sexiness is in full display with plenty of amazing photos, thanks to Itzkirb Photography.

Check out the gallery below and try to figure how Itzkirb Photography managed to fit all these pieces of hotness into a steamy batch of photos. Here’s a suggestion, though: don’t over think it and just enjoy the spread.

That’s what we did.

Sexy Model Crystal Gets Her Start with Exotics Galore

We know how two models in a photoshoot with cars works, but now, how about we take a stab at three?

The leading lady in this particular spread is 20-year old Crystal, an outgoing woman doing her very first official shoot. Way to get baptized into the world of auto modeling, huh?

Together with two of Secret Entourage’s previous models, Misty and Kristen, Crystal gets acquainted to a number of exotics, including the Ferrari 360 Modena, Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale, and the Porsche 911 Gemballa Bi-Turbo.
This collection of hotness of the female and automotive variety is the kind of spread we’d love to have as our wallpapers. Not to mention, this Crystal lady is a real stunner, isn’t she?

She’s a tease too, which we don’t mind in a girl in the least bit. Crazy, stunning, and beautiful, that’s the best way to describe this 20-year old firestarter.

Check her out on the gallery below!

Video: Argentinean Soccer Player’s Ferrari 360 Modena Catches Fire

There are several things you can expect when you purchase a used supercar. Things like great handling, superior engine performance, and stylish appearance are all on that list. There is an equally long list of things you would never expect. One of the biggest things you would not expect is a Ferrari-b-q.

Well, when you have the automotive luck of Valencia CF soccer player, Ever Banega, whose last mishap involved forgetting to set the parking brake on his Audi R8, which resulted in it rolling backwards and breaking his ankle, you should really expect the unexpected. Well, that’s exactly what happened, as Banega’s newly purchased Ferrari 360 Modena decided to spontaneously combust on his way to practice.

Well, maybe not spontaneously, as it was determined that electrical failure caused the blaze, but it is still something that is truly unexpected. By the time fire fighters subdued the flames, the 360 Modena was little more than a pile of melted plastic and metal.

Fortunately, Banega got away from the flaming car without injury and someone managed to get us some footage of this Ferrari turned kindling, as Banega and his teammate frantically look for water to douse the flames.

Check out the video and cringe as this fine automobile meets its flaming grave. Maybe Banega should consider mass transit from here on out...

Ferrari 360 Modena limousine - the perfect ride for Santa

Ferrari 360 Modena limousine - the perfect ride for Santa

By now all of the kiddos have ripped through all of the Christmas wrapping to unveil the toys that Saint Nick was kind enough to swing by in the middle of the night to all of the good boys and girls. And now we can see what may have been the vehicle used to lug around all of those presents in a speedy fashions.

This Ferrari 360 Modena limousine is just about the craziest and best limo we’ve ever seen. It was spotted a few days before Christmas by shoppers in upmarket Knightsbridge, London where it took up two parking spaces. It was created by cutting a regular 360 Modena in half and adding seats in the middle to provide interior room for eight people, or a bunch of presents.

Estimated at £250,000 ($390,000 at the current exchange rates), this is the fastest limousine in the world - it can hit a top speed of 166 mph. Of course, there’s only one in existence and we’re guessing the big jolly guy has dibs.

"’Every boy wants to get into a Ferrari, this was a way for people to be able to do that with seven mates. It’s the biggest and craziest vehicle you can get. We made it because we wanted to create the ultimate Ferrari experience," said Dan Cawley - the designer of the limo.

Hit the jump for a short video of the limousine.

2004 Ferrari 360 Modena 'Su Misura' by Fenice Milano

2004 Ferrari 360 Modena ’Su Misura’ by Fenice Milano

Italian tuning company, Fenice Milano, is the kind of tuner that doesn’t get into many headlines because they produce programs about as frequently as we see blue moons.

But whenever these guys have something new in store for its clients, it gets everybody’s attention, even if they have a new program for a car that’s, say, 10 years old.

That’s what they have for the Ferrari 360 Modena, a renewed program for the popular Italian supercar that served as a stylistic precursor to the F430 and the 458 Italia.

The program is called the ‘Su Misura F101,′ and includes an extensive integration of internal and external aesthetic components made of carbon fiber and fiber glass. Aerodynamically, the 360 Modena was given a slew of new components, including a new front bumper, new side skirts, a new suspension set-up with totally adjustable shock absorbers and springs, a new quad-pipe stainless steel exhaust system, and a new set of 20" three-piece, forged wheels, machined from aluminum. Inside, a list of modifications were also included, featuring adjustable seats in carbon, a new roll bar in the passenger compartment, and a new multi-media navigation center and satellite arm.

The Italian supercar also received a new ECU courtesy of Fenice Milano, which takes the car’s performance levels up a few notches north of the standard model. The new ECU also comes with a suction system, and while the Italian tuning firm didn’t reveal the increased numbers, you can expect it to be significantly more than what the standard 360 Modena and its 395-horsepower 3.6-liter V8 engine output is capable of producing.

Avert Your Eyes! This is a Ferrari Mashup of Epic Proportions

Avert Your Eyes! This is a Ferrari Mashup of Epic Proportions

It’s always sad when we have to report on a crashed supercar, but this latest accident takes that depression to epic proportions. Not one, not two, but eight Ferraris, as well as a Lamborghini, two Mercedes models, and two Toyota models have been utterly destroyed this past weekend during a terrible crash on a highway in Japan. The Ferraris destroyed were: several F355 units, an F-360, and an F-430. The losses are being estimated at around $1.5 million, but some are reporting losses of up to $4 million! Fortunately no one was seriously injured in the accident, but 10 people sustained bruising and minor injuries, probably to their egos as well as their bodies.

"The accident occurred when the driver of a red Ferrari was switching from the right lane to the left and skidded," said Mitsuyoshi Isejima, Executive Officer for Yamaguchi Prefecture’s Expressway Traffic Police unit. "It was a gathering of narcissists."

The driver responsible, a 60-year-old man may face up to three months in jail or a fine of as much as $1,280 - considering the damage, we’d say he got off easy. The police officers needed about six hours to clear the highway, although it may take the drivers a lifetime to forget this horrific experience ever happened.

1999 Ferrari 360 Modena with Lingenfelter Performance

1999 Ferrari 360 Modena with Lingenfelter Performance

Photographer Jason Thorgalsen has the ability to photograph some of the hottest cars on the planet, but his recent trip to one guy’s garage in California lead him into a world where high end sports cars reign supreme and alternative options for performance don’t fall short of massive creativity.

We don’t know the name of the man behind the garage, but this guy has two 1999 Ferrari 360 Modenas just chilling in his garage - one for him and one for his wife. Apparently, he was zipping around a local racetrack when the standard V8 found in the sports car blew out. Not wanting to shell out the dough for another Ferrari engine - or maybe just because he’s cool enough to find other methods for power - the owner of the Ferrari decided to head on over to Lingenfelter to make good use of their Chevy-sourced 427-ci Lingenfelter Performance-built power plant. This engine powers out over 1,000 HP compared to the 400bhp at 8500rpm and 275lb-ft at 4750rpm found in the standard engine. Yeah, this guy just became one of our idols.

Aside from the standard 360 Modena and the new powerhouse 360 Modena, the owner of this well-stocked garage is also home to two Ferrari 360 GTs, a Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale, a Ferrari F430 Spider, a Lotus Exige, a Pagani Zonda, a Pagani Zonda Monza, a Porsche GT3, a Porsche GT3 RS, a Porsche GT3 RS MK2, two Porsche Carrera GTs, and a Ruf R Turbo Widebody. Seriously, does it get any better than that? We didn’t think so.

Video: Supercars pounce on Brazilian roads

Anytime you get the chance to see four exotic cars on the road together continuously trying to one-up one another, it would be a complete crime to not bring out the cameras and videotape the whole proceedings.

Fortunately, the man sitting shotgun inside a Ferrari 430 Scuderia had the wherewithal to take out his camera and videotape the entire action up close and personal. Not to be outdone by the 430 Scuderia, the other three supercars in this video include some of the finest exotic machineries on the planet like a Ferrari 458 Italia, a Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale, and the only non-Prancing Horse of the group, a Lamborghini Gallardo LP550-2 Balboni Edition.

You normally don’t see a group of cars with this much power oozing out of them together for a joyride along the highways of Brazil, so when it happens, you can definitely expect to have someone recording the action in all its ear-piercing glory.

Sounds of 2010: Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale live in Brazil

Here in Top Speed, we have every intention of ringing in the new year with a bang. That pretty much means that for the next few days until 2011 rolls along, we intended to keep the noise and decibel level up a few notches with some eardrum-shattering, high-octane videos featuring some of our – and yours too, we hope – favorite exotics on the planet.

First up is a Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale screaming along the streets of Brazil. While we understandably dig the whole video game-to-real life effects done at the start of the video, we’re more interested in the sound of that powerhouse engine piercing through its surroundings.

Watch the five-minute video until the end and you’re going to be treated to the joyous sound of the car heading inside a couple of tunnels with the shriek of the engine reverberating and bouncing along the tunnel’s walls.

Ramp up the volume, fellas. This Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale is certainly not for the weak of heart.

Ferraris invade Monza race track

Ferraris invade Monza race track

If only we could get invited to these exclusive track meets, then we’d be the ones getting videotaped with our fancy Ferraris instead of being the ones watching it from our sofas all while imagining the day when we could get our hands on a Prancing Horse.

That being said, there’s no shame in watching these videos because, well, this is probably as good as it can get for us.

This track video comes courtesy of Marchettino who somehow found himself at
Monza riding with a bunch of Ferrari owners for a nice day of leg stretching around the Italian race track. Watch the video and you’ll notice some of Maranello’s best running around Monza, including a black Ferrari 458 Italia, a Ferrari 599, and what looks to be a Ferrari 575M. Oh and there’s some Ferrari 430s and 360s scattered in the area as well.

If that’s not enough, we get a close-up look of an F430 Scuderia going full blast at 170 mph while producing that unmistakable engine roar to the delight of our speakers.

Not to sound like a jealous man, but…I want one of those!

Admit it, people. You’re all as envious as we are right now.

Video: Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale goes bonkers inside a tunnel

A few days ago, we showed you a video of a Koenigsegg CCXR blasting through a tunnel, showing off that remarkable power and ear-splitting engine roar to anybody who ended up watching it.

Not to be outdone, we have another supercar doing the exact same thing: a Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale. Recorded somewhere in Brazil, the driver of the 360 Challenge Stradale waits for the perfect opportunity for the tunnel to clear up before going bonkers and blasting off at full throttle. The resulting sound is so glorious, one look and listen to it isn’t enough to appreciate what’s under the hood of that Italian stallion.

So boys and girls, children of all ages, just like we’ve told you countless times, standard protocol dictates that you put your speakers on full blast, sit back, and enjoy the sound of this Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale lay complete waste to this tunnel in Brazil.

Arab prince wrecks rental Ferrari 360 Modena in London

Arab prince wrecks rental Ferrari 360 Modena in London

Hey, look! There’s a bonfire happening in the middle of the streets of London!

Oh, wait. That’s not a bonfire. What that is, unfortunately, is a Ferrari 360 Modena that’s on fire. Hey, at least it’s not a Ferrari 458 Italia.

Tasteless jokes aside, the story on how that 360 Modena caught fire is a doozy. Turns out, it belonged to somebody who decided to rent out his supercar through a rental agency for $1,500 to an Arab prince who ended up crashing it to oblivion. And all of that happened before the car started catching fire.

Two things that we’re dying to know: One, how in the world did the owner feel when he found out his Ferrari was totaled beyond repair and all he got out of it was $1,500. You can’t even buy a dinged-up Pinto with that money. Second, how can an Arab prince rent out a Ferrari when he probably has like a hundred of them tucked in his garage?

Although we don’t know what came out of this mess, the only redeeming part about this is that the Arab prince can probably afford to replace the 360 Modena with another Ferrari, or maybe something even better. If we were the owner of the car, we’d be thinking somewhere along the lines of maybe a Pagani Zonda.

Ferrari 360 Spider gets rear-ended by reckless driver

Ferrari 360 Spider gets rear-ended by reckless driver

To everyone who still insists on using their cell phone while their driving, this piece of wasted Italian machinery is proof that nothing good ever comes out of it.

The worst part is, the driver of that Ferrari 360 Spider wasn’t even the one at fault. Nope, the offending party, as it turns out, was a young woman who was too busy talking on her phone that she didn’t see that her car was closing in on the rear end of the 360 Spider.

As you can plainly see, the result speaks for itself. The Ferrari 360 Spider’s rear end was significantly damaged and we can’t even comprehend how much it would cost to get that Prancing Horse, that was at the wrong place and at the wrong time, up and running again.

One thing’s for sure, though - and it’s been abundantly clear since handheld devices like cell phones were invented - when you’re out on the road, please don’t do anything that can result in a crash like this. Fortunately, both the young lady and the driver of the 360 Spider escaped without injury. It’s already bad enough that a beautiful - and expensive - car like this gets ruined because of reckless driving, but it could’ve been worse. Much, much worse.

Ferrari 360 gets completely wrapped in anime and manga drawings

Ferrari 360 gets completely wrapped in anime and manga drawings

Maybe we should reconsider our position towards anime, especially in light of the fact that our Japanese friends can go really over-the-top with their fanaticism towards it. Normally, we’re tolerant of those who enjoy it, but when the obsession goes a little overboard - as is the case with this one - then we can’t help, but wonder what these loonies are thinking.

It’s cool if it were any other car, like maybe, a Corolla or a Civic, but painting anime and manga characters all over a beautiful Ferrari 360? Imagine the outcry over there at Maranello. They never, in their wildest dreams, would have thought that somebody would do this to one of their exotics.

Maybe the owner of this car should get married to the owner of that Hello Kitty Ferrari 360. That would be a sight to see.

Ferrari 360 gets the Hello Kitty treatment

Ferrari 360 gets the Hello Kitty treatment

Oh, dear. You know, it took us a couple of minutes to process these two photos of what we first thought to be a Ferrari 360. Unfortunately, it’s a 360 that’s been bastardized by its owner with an overdose of - of all things - Hello Kitty!

This reprehensible 360 was spotted at a mall in Jakarta, Indonesia and from the looks of things, saying that the owner of this car is a big fan of Hello Kitty is a massive understatement. From all angles, you’re going to see some reference to that silly, little Sanrio cat. From the plate holders, the side mirror stickers, and even exhaust tips, this Prancing Horse’s makeover is something that can make even casual Ferrari fans cringe. The photos show little of the car’s interior, but judging from all the pink that’s present inside, we’re pretty sure that it’s got its own little Hello Kitty shrine in there too.

We love anything and everything about Ferraris, but this is just ridiculous.

Ferrari 360/360 Spider by Novitec Rosso

Ferrari 360/360 Spider by Novitec Rosso

The Ferrari F430 is an impressive car, no doubt, but there are people out there who consider the 360 to be even better. And if you are among them and drive a 360, coupe or Spider, then here’s the right tuning package for you!

The aerodynamic package includes: front spoiler, front bumper Supersport, rear skirt, rear wing Supersport, air duct inlet, and skirts for side panels.

For the engine, Novitec Rosso is offering two programs. The first program, Sport Bi-compressor, includes 2 superchargers with separated oil-circuit, modified induction tract complete heat insulated, watercooled intercoolers with additional watercoolers, pumps, reinforced v-ripped belts with dynamic belt-tensioners, injectors, modified motronic in combination with Novitec-tectronic, and Carbon airfilter-housing for Coupe / Spider / Challenge Stradale. The output is raised to 555 hp at 8.100 rpm, the sprint from 0 to 60 mph in 3.9 seconds, and the top speed goes up to 208 mph.

Turn your Toyota MR2 into a Fakerrari 360 for $2,000

Turn your Toyota MR2 into a Fakerrari 360 for $2,000

Either this is the ugliest Ferrari 360 we’ve ever seen or it’s something else – a Toyota MR2, perhaps - that’s masquerading as a Prancing Horse.
In any case, we don’t have a clue as to why somebody would want to turn an MR2 into a Fakerrari other than maybe they think that people are stupid enough to believe they have a Ferrari 360.

But if you don’t have an ounce of shame in your bones and you are interested in this kit to rebadged your Toyota into a 360, then all you need to do is fork over $2,000.

But we do have to warn you. Contrary to what you’re thinking, driving around a Fakerrari around town won’t do a whole lot to bump up your cred. The truth is, you’re probably doing more damage to yourself by sitting behind the wheel of a Fakerrari.

For starters, it makes you look cheap and more important than that, any self-respecting man would know what a genuine Ferrari 360 looks like. And this is most definitely not one of them.

South Korean police brings in Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini patrol cars

South Korean police brings in Ferrari, Porsche and Lamborghini patrol cars

The next time you find yourself driving a car in South Korea, you might want to think twice about breaking any speed limits unless you want these guys on your tail.

Needless to say, the South Korean patrol cars are not your everyday Kia Rios or Hyundai Getzs. By our tally, that’s a Ferrari 360, a Porsche 911, and a Lamborghini Gallardo all serving as patrol cars for South Korea’s police department.

If you’re picturing a car chase, you’re probably thinking that the scenario would be the other way around. Supercar gets jacked and standard patrol cars give chase. Well, in Korea, the shoe is in the proverbial other foot and trying to engage these cars in a good old police chase is as dumb an idea as drinking milk on Fat Tuesday.

Ferrari 360 Modena burns along California highway

Car crashes are never a pretty sight but we can imagine just how gut-wrenching it must be for someone to watch his beloved sports car burn before his very eyes.

So to the man who owns this Ferrari 360 Modena that inexplicably caught fire at the 101 over the weekend, we feel for you buddy.

No details have been released regarding the cause of the fire so it’s hard to speculate as to how it ended up burning itself to a heap. Whatever the case may be, it’s still a little hard for us to stomach a car as beautiful as a 360 suffer such a stomach-churning fate.

Its true that when it comes about Ferrari this day, the 458 Italia caught all the attention, but Premier4509 announced a new body kit for the Ferrari 360. Deliveries will start this month, but the tuner did not announced the price for the kit.

The body kit includes four components made of carbon fiber: a new front bumper which is similar to that of the F430, a new rear bumper, side skirts and rear spoiler.

Stay tuned, we’ll get back with more details!

Ferrari 360 owner crashes car at the Palm Beach International Speedway

Ferrari 360 owner crashes car at the Palm Beach International Speedway

Sometimes, even the best-laid plans don’t go according to what you’d hope for, and this poor guy found that out the hard way.

Let’s face it; thanks to speed limits, the thrill of driving a Ferrari 360 out on the road is nowhere near what it would feel like if you’re taking it out on a race track.

So to experience the unadulterated power of his prized possession, the owner of this Ferrari 360 took out his beloved ride to the Palm Beach International Speedway to run a few laps. Ever the protective owner that he is, the owner even plastered the front of his car with blue protective adhesive because, well, you never know, what might happen out there and he was being extra cautious from getting his car dinged up.

But like we said, even the best laid plans don’t always go according to the script. In the middle of one of his laps, the driver lost control of his car, crashing its rear end into a wall before spinning out of control and crashing another wall with the adhesive-covered front side.

And as you plainly tell by the photos, that blue adhesive that was supposed to protect the 360 from the supposed dinks and kinks was no match to a concrete wall.

Ouch. Ouch. And more ouch.

Ferrari 360 Modena crashes and burns but the driver walks away O.K.

Ferrari 360 Modena crashes and burns but the driver walks away O.K.

Like a set of dental records are used to identify a badly charred body, the only thing that is left from this Italian super car that is now a pile of molten metal is a lone five spoke alloy wheel with a little yellow prancing horse emblem in the center to let onlookers know that it was one a Ferrari 360 Modena. Apparently the 32 year old driver was enjoying a spirited country drive with an older female riding shotgun when he unexpectedly lost control in a swooping bend and then flipped over multiple times before landing in a crop field and then bursting into flames, however unlike the other Ferrari 360 incident that we reported on earlier, this time all that the driver walked away with was a broken ankle.

Thanks to the quick actions of a benevolent motorist who happened to be passing by just after the accident occurred and then courageously pulled both the driver and 37 year old passenger from the wreckage before they were harmed by the fire. The passengers were then treated by firefighters on the scene of the accident as they waited for paramedics. The driver only suffered a broken right ankle while the female was air lifted to the hospital with pelvic wounds however her condition was not life threatening. Had it not been for the quick acting passerby, the Ferraristas would have certainly suffered a more tragic fate. The 360 Modena involved in the incident was a 1999-2000 model that originally sold for around $150,000 and was the first production Ferrari to make use of extremely light weight aluminum and carbon fiber construction that made it an extremely agile sports car, but also a highly flammable automobile.

We’ve seen a lot of accidents over the years and for the most part, we’ve been happy enough to say that despite those unfortunate circumstances, the people involved have been lucky enough to escape from the wrecks breathing and their limbs intact. Unfortunately, this isn’t one of them.

In an accident that happened about a week ago in Rome, a 2003 Ferrari 360 Modena crashed head-on with a Fiat Punto, resulting in a devastating accident that killed both drivers and seriously injured a couple more, including a motorcycle driver.

The wreckage doesn’t even paint the picture as to how destructive the accident is. It’s one thing to crash a car and live to tell stories about it, but it’s another thing to crash and lose your life in the process.

To those who were involved and lost their lives, rest in peace, buddies.

Ferrari 360 Spider in flames!

Usually a headline like this is the precursor to a story that starts with a twelve-year-old Russian oil billionaire or B-list Hollywood movie producer; followed by the phrase “lost control” or “prostitute tried to get away”; and then we all get mad when we hear that they just paid cash for a new Italian beauty (car, not woman). But this time its just a flame job car wrap.

While we can think of better things to do with Ferrari 360 Spider, at least this is just a big sticker that can be peeled off. Plus it could be worse, this could be a gold-wrapped SLR.

Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale

Unfortunately, Charles Lewis Jr, the owner of the TapouT MMA clothing line has died in an automobile accident. Lewis was also known by the nickname "Mask" due to his constant face paint. The $300,000 Ferrari crashed into a light pole, ripping the car in half. Judging from the carbon fiber seats the vehicle looks to be a 360 Challenge Stradale.

The accident took place this morning at 1:00 AM. "Mask" was declared dead at the scene. A female passenger, who was ejected from the vehicle, was taken to a local hospital and remains in critical conditions. It is speculated that the Ferrari was racing another high performance vehicle, a Porsche, at the time of the accident.

A statement made by TapouT confirms Lewis’s death: "It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we must regretfully confirm the passing of our beloved friend, brother and co-founder Charles ‘Mask’ Lewis following a car accident that occurred last night. We are currently in the process of setting up a memorial service in his honor and will release more details as they become available. Many thanks to all for the outpouring of blessings."

Ferrari 360 Modena crashed! Driver survives!

This Ferrari 360 Modena was almost sliced in half yesterday, yet the two men inside astonishingly escaped serious injury. The $150,000 car (when new) was reported to be going at about 95 mph in a residential neighborhood when the incident happened. It seems that the Ferrari was too much for the driver to handle. A witness in the southern Austrailian town of Walkerville describe the the moments before the accident as, "It’s like they turned the streets into a racetrack."

Men arrested for selling fake Ferrari

Men arrested for selling fake Ferrari

Being able to transform a Toyota MR2 into a Ferrari look-alike was supposed to be a good thing (well, yes it is a crime against style!), but when you sale this fake Ferrari into a country like Italy where selling a Ferrari replica is against the law when you can get busted at any moment!

Police in Italy arrested a group of eight mechanics who transformed the Toyota MR2s and Pontiacs into Ferrari and sold them for £15,000 each.

Police are understood to have confiscated 14 fake 360 Modenas – seven sold and seven under construction – and eight people are under investigation.

Apparently those buying the cars knew they were fakes (how wouldn’t they?) so we can only hope that people rolling in rebodied MR2s over here will soon get busted for being so lame. The buyers were simply buying the cars to impress the neighbors.

In April 2006 on the E6 road in southern Sweden a police officer was chasing a speeding Ferrari 360 Modena down the wrong side of a motorway at 300 km/h. So what’s with that you will say? Nothing new, we hear before about a Ferrari speeding on the highway and a police officer trying to catch it. Well you are right, but I am sure you dind’t expect that the police officer was charged for that and will have to go in court pretty soon. Why? For careless driving.

1999 - 2004 Ferrari 360 Modena

1999 - 2004 Ferrari 360 Modena

Ferrari is a brand built on front-engine V-12 touring cars. But a few decades ago, its mid-engine V-8 sports cars became the Prancing Horse’s real money makers, and now it’s make-or-break every time a new one debuts. This was especially true in 1999, when it came time to replace the F355. The car had been well loved, the best-selling Ferrari of all time at that point, and a hit with the automotive press as well. But the F355 was based on the 348, and a design dating back to 1989, and it was getting a little long in the tooth.

Ferrari’s replacement for the F355 was the 360, the first car the company made out of aluminum, and just from looking at it, it’s obvious that the mid-engine V-8 berlinetta was completely rethought for this car. The naming scheme was changed for the 360 as well. The F355 got its name from having a 3.5-liter engine with 5 valves per cylinder. The new version of the engine was 3.6 liter and still had five valves per cylinder, but there already were quite a few Ferrari models called 365, so the whole of the name comes from the engine’s total displacement, a first for a Ferrari V-8 model.

1999 - 2004 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale

1999 - 2004 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale

For years, from the old Ferrari 166 or Ferrari 250 GT sport saloons to, somewhat later, with the GTO or F40, Ferraris have remained Spartan in terms of their trim, even though they had luxurious touches, to focus entirely on performance in which every single gram of excess weight was eliminated. The other distinctive characteristic is the red body colour, an unmistakable sign of a Maranello car. But by the early 90s this way of conceiving cars seemed rather limited. Owning a Ferrari must give all-round pleasure and so any decision to limit comfort, usability and interior space excessively no longer made sense. The same went for colors. This change of thinking led to models like the 1992 - 1997 Ferrari 456 GT and 1996 - 2001 Ferrari 550 Maranello, or the 1995 - 1999 Ferrari F355 and, later, 1999 - 2004 Ferrari 360 Modena eight-cylinder models.

Ten years on, this progressive mutation has now given way to a certain feeling of nostalgia for a Ferrari with no frills, which models like the 1995 Ferrari F50 and 2003 to 2004 Ferrari Enzo have continued to express even though they were produced in limited runs. With the 360 Challenge Stradale, Ferrari again proposes the very essence of a racing car.

Only features that were absolutely essential to the performance and safety were built into the car; the rest were left out. The end result is an extremely lightweight, fast sports saloon, with a true racing-style set-up and impeccable handling: a model offering top-level performance that incorporates experience gained over the many thousands of kilometres covered by drivers in Challenge Championships throughout the world and advanced testing with the 360 GTs that have participated in the FIA World Championship.

There was a choice of two Challenge Stradale versions: a more extreme one with racing seats and sliding windows, last used on the F40, and another, fitted with lighter, wrap-around, leather seats and wind-down windows.

1999 - 2005 Ferrari 360 Spider

1999 - 2005 Ferrari 360 Spider

The 360 Spider is Ferrari’s 20th road going convertible. In terms of engineering, looks, and performance it was the best production spider Maranello had ever produced at that time. Thanks to the exclusive know-how Ferrari has accumulated as a Formula 1 constructor, it was the most technologically advanced convertible available of its time.

Despite the car’s mid-mounted 400 horsepower V-8 engine, Ferrari engineers found a way of creating a roof that automatically folds into its own well between the cabin and the engine bay, thus ensuring purity of line. The intrinsic quality of the design is underlined by the two fairings in the bodywork to the rear of the seats which evoke memories of classic Ferraris. These are matched by the two roll hoops that provide maximum safety for both of the car’s occupants. With the top up the car is aggressive, emphasizing the V-8 visible through engine cover. Lowering the fully automatic roof transforms the 360 Spider, highlighting its connection to great sports racers. As strong and rigid as the Berlinetta, the 360 Spider offers performance almost identical to the coupe version, achieving a top speed over 180 mph while weighing barely 130 pounds more and offering the same amount of room for the occupants and their luggage.
