2000 Ferrari 360 Coupe F1

For the past five years or so, the Ferrari 360 has gained attention as the perfect entry level supercar. We can assure you that this is very much justified.

As this Ferrari 360 approaches 20 years old, it has in no way lost any of its factory elegance. The body still looks modern, and the drivetrain has the dependability of a modern vehicle. Driving enthusiasts however, love the fact that this car isn’t bogged down by all the electronics that most newer cars contain. Instead, every part of this car connects you to the road.

We can’t say enough good things about this car’s power plant. Displacing 3.6 liters, and making a (conservatively rated) 400 horses, it is unlikely that you will ever feel the need for more power. The engine makes a sound paralleled only by cars with 2-4 additional cylinders, and revs to a 8500rpm redline. Of course, many would prefer the rare 6-speed manual, but we are here to tell you that the F1 gearbox is also a great option. For a single clutch, the car is surprisingly confident at low speeds. Daily driving this car would be no problem at all. However, it is at full throttle that this transaxle really shines. Upshifts will slam you back into the optional Daytona seats, while downshifts create a one of the most glorious sounds we have ever heard.

Unfortunately, this car has already sold, but keep an eye out on The Driven Exchange for more just like it. With a little luck, you may even snag the 6-speed manual!
