    Default Is my budget realistic for a 360?

    I have decided that I would like to purchase a 360 and am actively looking for one. As far as specification goes I am after a 360 Modena in Red with a manual gearbox (ideally with 40k or less miles. My budget is up to £65k. Do you think this is an appropriate budget or am I most likely going to have to look for an F1? I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

    I think itís probably realistic these days for a 360. Obviously you want a manual (which holds a premium) red (which holds a premium) car but going into the winter is the time to look as prices tend to deflate fractionally compared to the spring and summer. Best of luck with the search

    I think prices for 360s have softened over this last couple of years and you should be able to find a nice car for your budget. Don't get caught up on manual vs F1 though. Concentrate on condition and history as that trumps the gear selection choice by a considerable margin.

    There was (is?) a member here selling a manual red Modena a little while back. I assume he still has it and was looking for £60-£65k. Scan downwards through the for sale section of the forum and you'll find it, along with my beautiful red F1 Modena that sold earlier this year

    While prices of other models have bounced up and down wildly over the years, 360's have stayed very constant.

    In 2003 I bought a 1999 car for £80k

    In 2007 I bought one for £58k

    I nearly bought one in 2014 for £55k (bought a 430 for £62k as there was only a slight premium).

    Still similar today. All the above were manuals but if buying today I would probably buy F1 and have CS gearbox software.

    Still not an investment of course as you will spend a fair bit on maintenance.

    Thank you very much that is very useful to know, hopefully more come on the market as the market goes quieter in the winter.

    Thank you, I have been thinking about this further and think the F1 gearbox may be worth a go and if the right one comes for sale it sure is one that I will consider. Shame I missed out on yours looked like a really good one and local to me! Are you planning to purchase another Ferrari?

    That's interesting to see I hadn't realised the market for the 360 was this consistent. Will see how things pan out in the coming months. I am actively looking at the moment still. This will sure be a dream for me to fulfill.

    Having driven all variants extensively I do think you should try the F1. It's easy for a specialist to install Challenge Stradale ECU software and that completely transforms the car.

    Hi, yes, we bought a California. This fell into your budget too (just) and it's a very nice car. I felt the 360 was a little wasted here in the congestion of the south east and the Cali is a bit more suitable for our usage. I adored our Modena though, so pretty

    That's a lot of car for the money imo. Always liked the California, ticks so many boxes.

    Congratulations on the new acquisition I had contacted Malc as his one certainly would've fitted the bill however he has decided to keep hold of his 360 which I completely understand.
