No commentary, no fancy shots, just driving footage of a manual Ferrari 360 Modena to put a smile on your face.
Davide Cironi brings us this simple but tastefully done video of him in a Modena on a narrow winding road, exercising its sweet 400hp 3.6-litre flat-plane crank V8 engine with the kind help of its six-speed manual gearbox.
Late manual Ferraris have seen their values skyrocket for the last few years, compared to their paddle-shift siblings mainly because of their rarity and then because of the more involving driving character.
It’s not a perfect world as most collectors are looking for a solid investment first and then maybe a good drive. Moreover, Maranello itself has consigned the chrome gate to history, offering all its current models solely with a dual-clutch gearbox and there is no way we’ll ever see it back. However, as far as exciting drives go, a manual transmission Ferrari will always have a place in our hearts.
