      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      You will always have a smile on your face

      Very few people get the chance to drive a car such as this, let alone own one. So, should you ever get the chance to drive, or even just ride in one, then take it! You will not regret it!

      Ferrari are prestigious car crafters, they make what can only be described as the best out there. They are on teenagers walls; peoples driveways and at ever motor-show in the world. Their cars are crafter over months, each part assembled by skilled craftsmen. Once passing the air-tight quality control, they are allowed to be pulled together to create a magical vehicle.

      Introduced in 2002, the 360 Modena replaced the much loved 355. And after the huge success of the 355, how could the 360 possibly be better?

      Well, firstly the engine is much improved. The 360 has a 3.6L V8, whereas the 355 had a 3.5L V8. Not much? Power is now up from 380BHP to 400BHP. Now this may not sound like a massive increase, however, the you can certainly feel the extra power. 0-60MPH in dealt with in 4.5s unlike the 355's 4.7s. This is perhaps due to the much improved aero dynamics which make this car faster, but also, much better looking. Top speed: 180MPH.

      This is all very well, but how does it perform? Well, the extra power is very much noticeable. The car sticks to the road like glue and, contrary to some review, i am yet to find a corner it will not go around at high speed (on a track of course).

      The F1 gearbox is great on the track and road, but can be a pain in the backside wile parking or at low speed. In the city it is much easier to just put it into automatic mode. I have not yet driven a manual version, however, with a clutch pedal it will be much easier to park.

      On the road the car is very civilized and tamed. It is a car i could use every day. Like all Ferrari's i find the interior particularly dull compared to the likes of Lamborghini or Aston Martin. It is however, a comfortable place to sit, even on long journeys. One option i would suggest not getting i the sports seats, they are just not worth it.

      Running cost? Well insurance group 20 means you're going to be spending a few thousand here each year; servicing costs are from £700 to £2400 or more and every few thousand miles you are "advised" to pay £1000 for a set of new tires. We won't even bother with fuel costs, you know they will be high! Running this machine is never going to be cheap.

      Buying one? Well expect to pay around £50,000 for a reasonable example. F1 gearboxes and Spyder edition will add a few grand to the price.

      Is it worth having one? Well... yes! You will always have a smile on your face

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        Not many people have had the chance to take a ride in this car so when I was offered i didn't hesitate for a second. I had seen the car on top gear and various other motor shows but they give no close representation to how awesome this car truly is. This is one of the wider ferrari's at 1.922m this width give much improved handeling. The 3.6 litre V8 gives 400bhp at 8500 rpm which can thrust the 1290kg car to 60mph in just 4.5 seconds. The best thing about this car is the sound it makes; When started it comes alive with the much loved sound of the V8 but when you hit 6000rpm the car just opens up and the 40 valves create a sound nothing short of a formula 1 car. When riding in the car sitting with the engine just behind your head the sound is much less noticeable. The 6 speed manual gearbox changes smoothly but some say the clutch is a bit heavy; This gearbox is much more fun to drive than the F1 style steptronic gearbox. One of the options in the car I went in was the hand stiched leather seats which were increadibly comfortable and the whole interior is based on luxury cars with turned aluminium swithches and state of the art climate control and cd player. This car is not done justis buy pictures or words you can only feel the presence of this car by actually riding in one - anything else is compromise.

          Anybody with eyes and taste will tell you that this is the best looking car ever to come out of any car manufacturer. Well done Ferrari! The natural grace combined with the sheer grunt of the massive engine is sure to stimulate even the limpest bizkit! Ferrari has not gone over the top with the design of the 360 Modena and simplest always was best. If there are any lottery winners out there. Hi, Buy a Ferrari 360 Modena and then give it to me. Cheers. x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I have seen many supercars in my lifetime, but this certainly trumps all the others within miles. With an engine that could make your grandma want one, and an interior that is so moulded to your body, you don't want to leave, it is (or must be) the most ferocious and beautiful looking car in it's class. I mean, come on. Look at the picture. If they got that any more streamlined, it would resemble a concordes wing. The interior looks basic, but at the same time flashy. With an amazing speedo that would put TVR to shame, and the most ideal driving position that could ever be, what more can i say? BRAVO! With a top speed of over 180 miles an hour and an incredible 0-60 speed of 4.3, this car is truly up there with the greats. Well done ferrari for producing yet another fantasmagorically outstanding car!

          I think that the Ferrari 360 modena is the best sports car around today they are not common cars but it seems to be the most popular ferrari in this country. It has an excellent interior with stylish buttons and features and the seats are very comfortable and so is the driving position. The back seats are very small and not at all comfortable. It is by far the best car in its class beating off all the competition.

          The ferreri 360 is without a doubt the best ferrari of them all and therefore the best car at the moment. The Ferrari 360 a relatively new car and the newest ferrari is outstanding. Once again the Italians have designed a car that turns not only peoples heads but there whole body. With all ferrari's it will leave a bid hole in your bank acount , but it would be worth it especially if you could afford it . It is not the fastest car in the world but with its streamline body it sure looks it. I would like to personaly thank Ferrari for making a car that is so perfect and when my bank account reaches the £200,000 mark it will be top of my purchasing list.

          The Ferrari what? I hear you say. Yes i agree that this is not the best known car of the Ferrari range but i have had the privilge to have a ride in my Uncle's one and it is amazing. The interior is leather and moulded to your body with small features that make a huge difference- such as the funky speedo design. The exterior- well look at the picture... Need i say more. The yellow colour turns heads and could they get it any more aerodynamic? If you are rich GET IT. If you are an average person- Keep on dreaming... I certainly will!!
