2004 FERRARI 360 CHALLENGE STRADALE

Lot Description

KEY FACTS

  • A limited-run track-focused supercar in superb condition, which is also a thrill to drive on the street.
  • Its engine is the 3.6-litre ‘Tipo F131’ naturally aspirated V8, which produces 425hp at 8,500rpm, coupled to a six-speed ‘F1’ automated transmission with paddle shift.
  • Registered in New York, it has been owned by the vendor for around four years, and has recently been refurbished by Ai Design.

EQUIPMENT AND FEATURES

  • Finished in Rosso Scuderia with a factory-applied NART racing stripe, and with the interior trimmed in red and black Alcantara.
  • It features carbon-fibre internal door panels, carbon rear view mirrors, and a carbon-fibre centre console. Other options include a Giallo rev counter and red brake callipers.
  • Features the correct 19-inch BBS Challenge wheels, shod in Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tyres.
  • The car now has a built-in Escort Max Ci 360 radar detector within a custom CAD-produced rear-view mirror housing, made specifically by Ai Design in New York.
  • It is also fitted with an aftermarket Kreissieg exhaust - though the original exhaust is included.
  • All original books and tools are included, along with the Ferrari seat covers and steering wheel cover, and lots of service history.

CONDITION

  • There is no known bodywork damage.
  • Its paintwork is in excellent condition, with the vendor only able to spot one flaw, which is a small stone chip the size of a ballpoint pen head on the hood, though it is only really visible upon close inspection.
  • Both rocker panels have recently been repainted to eliminate minor marks from road use.
  • The car also comes with a brand-new and spare plexiglass engine cover in its packing box, which the owner bought in case the rear screen was ever scratched, at a cost of around $20,000.
  • The interior is in pristine condition. It was recently treated to an extensive refurbishment by Ai Design, with much of the panels refinished in the original materials; not due to any damage, but simply to rectify early signs of ageing, as the owner wanted a perfect appearance.
  • There are no known mechanical or electrical faults.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • Fresh from a maintenance visit in May 2021 at 10,131 miles, this was a major service carried out at Wide World Ferrari, with replacement of the cam belts, valve covers, and cam seals. The brake fluid, gearbox oil, coolant, and spark plugs were also replaced, and there was a full inspection of all braking and suspension components.
  • The car has covered extremely limited mileage over the last four years, but has nevertheless had annual services during this period.

SUMMARY

This Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale is a stunning example of the lightened and more focused V8 supercar. It boasts a timeless factory colour scheme, as well as a few discerning upgrades, and has been treated to notable cosmetic refurbishment in recent years to ensure it presents superbly. With deft handling and intoxicating performance, it is bound to delight its next owner, whether they choose to enjoy it on the road or on the track.
