This Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale is a stunning example of the limited-run supercar, presented in excellent condition throughout. It is powered by the 3.6-litre ‘Tipo F131’ naturally aspirated V8, which produces 420bhp at a heady 8,500rpm, coupled to a six-speed ‘F1’ automated transmission with paddle shift – capable of launching the car from 0-62mph in just 4.1 seconds. The odometer shows 26,618 km.

Created with both the road and track in mind, the Challenge Stradale is up to 100kg lighter than the standard Modena, and includes carbon-ceramic brakes, tuned suspension and revised gearbox software as standard, as well as altered bodywork for 50% more downforce.

Delivered new to its first owner in Germany via main dealer Wolfgang Denzel in Austria, this left-hand-drive example was specified in Rosso Scuderia, with interior trim in carbon-fibre and black leather for the seats. It is believed to have had just one keeper in Germany, and one further previous keeper in the UK, having been imported in 2014. It is now being offered for sale by its current owner – believed to be the third keeper since new – who acquired it in March 2018.

The bodywork and paint present in remarkably good condition, with a deep gloss and crisp shut lines. Free of any damage or noticeable blemishes, the paintwork is described by the seller as being in near concours condition. It also been further enhanced by a full machine polish, with the same treatment being applied to the engine bay’s carbon-fibre items. The car’s carbon-fibre mirrors, Scuderia wing shields, and polycarbonate headlight lenses are all in great shape, with no wear or marks. It rides on its original, 19-inch BBS wheels, which are pristine, housing the carbon-ceramic brake discs and yellow callipers.

Inside, the Challenge Stradale is every bit the refined racing car, with pared-back carbon-fibre door cards and an uncarpeted floor doing their bit to avoid unnecessary weight. This example’s black leather upholstered carbon-fibre bucket seats present excellently, with minimal wear commensurate with the very low mileage. The seller does note some small marks to the lower door panels, caused by the driver and passenger entering and exiting the vehicle, but these are minor. The leather-covered dashboard is very smart, and the steering wheel has been re-trimmed in leather.

The current owner has also smartened up the cabin by replacing numerous plastic trims, buttons and switches with original Ferrari parts, to eliminate the common ‘sticky’ finish that models of this era suffer from. Only the reverse selector button is showing some slight signs of wear. All of the switchgear and electrics work without fault, and there are no warning lights on the dashboard.

This Challenge Stradale’s last scheduled service was carried out in January 2020 at 26,275 km at Strastone Wilmslow, during which a number of items were replaced, including both front lower suspension ball joints, the left and right bank cam covers and end plate gaskets, and the F1 transmission clutch block. The multi-plug to the third brake light was repaired, and various routine service jobs were completed including the engine oil and filter change, new brake fluid, new pollen filter, a fresh set of spark plugs, and a gearbox oil change.

In February 2020, the car went back to Strastone Wilmslow to diagnose a gear change fault, and as a result both the power unit and pump for the F1 transmission hydraulic actuators were replaced, with a total bill of £3,830. Within the last year, the seller has also spent a substantial sum to replace all of the car’s carbon-ceramic brake discs and pads, as well as the exhaust outlet pipes. The car went back to Stratstone over Christmas to attend to an intermittent issue with the door locks – a fairly common foible of the 360 – and as a result both door lock mechanisms have just been replaced. He believes he has spent the best part of £20,000 over the last year to bring the car up to a superb standard.

In May 2018, a major service was carried out at 26,228 km at R&D Automotive, when the timing belts were replaced, as well as the rear main oil seal, clutch release bearing, and transmission fluid. In April 2014, at 24,211 km, Carrs Ferrari carried out an annual service, and replaced the nearside rear upper arm bushes and ball joint rubber boot.

The car’s last annual MOT test was carried out on 13 January 2020 at 26,297 km, where it received a clean pass with no defects or warnings. In fact, since arriving in January 2014, it has always passed the MOT test on the first attempt, and with no advisories. Its wheels are shod with Pirelli P Zero Corsa tyres which were fitted only 1,000 miles ago, and remain in very good condition.

Accompanying the car are all of its original handbooks, the tan leather document wallet including its Ferrari-branded torch, tool kit, wheel nut key, and some previous documentation pertaining to its early life in Germany. Invoices for all the UK maintenance work are also included.

This Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale is an absorbing and characterful track-focused but road-legal supercar, which boasts wonderfully direct handling and one of Maranello’s most sensational exhaust notes. Presented in genuinely superb condition throughout, and described by the seller as one of the best available, this limited-run road car will make a thrilling addition to any collection.

Summary of service history:

  • 10/06/2008 – 9,874 km
  • 24/04/2010 – 16,791 km
  • 01/09/2011 – 20,251 km
  • 11/04/2012 – 20,286 km
  • 25/04/2014 – 24,211 km
  • 03/05/2018 – 26,228 km
  • 21/01/2020 – 26,275 km

Please note: the car is currently at Stratstone Wilmslow as both door lock mechanisms have just been replaced, and is due back with the vendor by the end of the auction period. While the Ferrari dealer is closed to visitors, the owner is happy to answer any questions that bidders may have.

Clutch wear is 24.47% which is a green light on the ferrari health check.

Mrockseller

No idea however ferrari replaced pretty much every component of the f1 system last year, it was checked at this point and didn't need any attention. Will see if they can get measurement today.

its just at ferrari having a new door lock mechanism fitted, was intermittently not locking. Do think they allow anyone inside the workshop due to covid restrictions. You can have it inspected once back home. They won't find a single issue, its as perfect as they can get.
