The days of new Ferraris with manual transmissions are long gone but those interested in living out their fantasies of owning a Ferrari with a stick shift should take a close look at this 2004 360 Modena.
Currently for sale on Bring A Trailer with only a few hours left in the auction, this 360 Modena could very well be one of the finest examples we’ve laid eyes on.
Unlike so many other 360 Modenas, this one isn’t painted red and is instead finished in a dark shade of blue dubbed Blu Pozzi. There is also a rear grille from the 360 Challenge Stradale and a set of immaculate 19-inch Challenge wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4 S tires. A Capristo exhaust system makes the car howl in a way which simply cannot be matched by the Prancing Horse’s current twin-turbocharged V8 engines.
The V8 engine of the 360 Modena is naturally-aspirated and displaces 3.6-liters and when new, the car pumped out 395 hp. A little power may have been lost over the years but the listing states that the car has had a timing belt changed and was recently serviced with new fluids, tensioner bearings, tensioner bushings, spark plugs, and new belts for the air conditioning, water pump, and power steering systems. A video of the car shows that it drives very well and all the original tools and owners’ books will be included in the sale.
The car has 36,500 miles (49,487 km) on the clock and at the time of writing, had attracted a highest bid of $81,000.
