The 360 Modena was the first road-going Ferrari constructed entirely in aluminium including the monocoque chassis, bodyshell and suspension wishbones allowing weight-saving benefits and increased performance of previous mid-engine V8 cars. Launched at the Geneva Motor Show in 1999, the 360 Modena was a radical departure for Ferrari even down to the removal of the previously-iconic central egg crate “radiator” grille.


Replacing them are twin radiator inlet grilles, one either side, allowing airflow to pass under the raised centre section to feed via the flat bottom to the twin rear diffuser section, increasing downforce as the car’s speed increases. However, some retro detail was included, for example the engine compartment intakes in the rear wings that hinted of the Dino, plus the traditional paired rear light design. 


This left-hand drive berlinetta example was imported into Switzerland by Ferrari Suisse S.A. in May 2000 and delivered by Garage de L’Athénée to it first of two owners in Geneva, before being imported into the United Kingdom in 2015 for its first of two UK owners. It is in its original colour combination of Grigio Titanio over Nero with its original Connolly leather intact and original and complete with silver stitching. The grigio carpets still have the original plastic cover intact and have always been covered by overmats.  The car is located at our workshops in the UK and has covered 57,000km from new. 


The car has an original set of Ferrari 18” five-spoke alloy wheels each complete with Pirelli P Zero tyres and the optional red brake calipers that contrast nicely the grigio paintwork.


This car has the upgraded and more sophisticated version of the “F1″ system introduced on the F355 model with the now common-place paddles mounted on the steering column. One of the advances of the revised system was that on sensing an input from the driver on either paddle, the throttle opening was adjusted accordingly during the change process to automatically smooth out the gear change.


The car for the past 18 months has been maintained and serviced by ourselves including belts replaced in September 2017. The car has a current MOT until April 2019 and will be supplied with a new 12 month MOT upon sale.

The 512 BB was announced at the 1976 Paris Motor Show. The 512 BB continued in production until 1981 when it was replaced by the 512 BBi, when fuel injection replaced the carburettors. A total of 929 examples were produced during this period with no USA market ever made. The new model name continued the theme started with the Dino series, of referring to the total engine capacity and number of cylinders, hence  a 5 litre engine with 12 cylinders. The “BB” part of the model title means “Berlinetta Boxer”, a reference to the two banks of six cylinders that are in a horizontally opposed layout.

The standard road wheels are alloy five spoke “star” pattern, with a knock off spinner on a Rudge hub, although legislative requirements in some markets dictated the fitment of a large octagonal hub nut. The wheels cover large ventilated disc brakes with twin hydraulic circuits, and servo assistance. Independent suspension is provided all round, via wishbones, coil springs, and hydraulic shock absorbers, with twin rear units, together with front and rear anti roll bars.

This LHD 1978 Ferrari 512 BB is in its original paint colour of Black with a natural tan daytona-seated interior. The car has hardly been driven since a major mechanical overhaul by GTO Engineering in our Los Angeles workshop. It was imported new into the United States in 1978 by Amerispec with full U.S. specifications and subsequently one of two 512 BB converted to a ‘Targa’ by legendary coach-builders R. Straman Co. in Costa Mesa, California. The car in now located in the United Kingdom.

The long awaited replacement for the Dino 246 GT,  the 308 GTB made its debut at the Paris and London shows in 1975. Built to a Pininfarina design by Scaglietti. The sought-after first models boasted fibreglass bodywork apart from the aluminium front lid. This was the first Ferrari production car to feature fibreglass as a body material, and in fact the idea has not been repeated by the company in large volume production since. A return to a pressed steel and aluminium happened in late 1976 for USA cars, and around mid-1977 for European models. The simplest way to identify a fibreglass bodied car, is to see if there is an indent line between the front screen pillar and roof panel. If there is one, then the body is fibreglass.

Disc brakes, with independent suspension via wishbones, coil springs, and hydraulic shock absorbers, were provided all round, with front and rear anti roll bars. A transversely mid-mounted aluminium V8 engine was essentially of the same design as that used in the 308 GT4 model. It was of a 90 degree configuration, with belt driven twin overhead camshafts per bank, having a total capacity of 2926cc, with a bore and stroke of 81mm x 71mm.

The engine was coupled in unit with the all synchromesh five speed transmission assembly, which was below, and to the rear of the engine’s sump. It was fitted with a bank of four twin choke Weber 40 DCNF carburettors, mounted in the centre of the 'V', the exact specification of which depended upon the market. European cars were fitted with dry sump lubrication.

This early fibreglass example was one of the first cars imported into the UK in June 1976 with Col. Ronnie Hoare, the founder of Maranello Concessionaires being the first registered owner. The first UK press car, it featured in a three-page road test in Motor Sport magazine in December 1976 and also in Brooklands Book of Road Tests as well as many others, copies of which are supplied with the car. It has all the available extras including argento metallic paint, air conditioning. This remains a low mileage example of a fibreglass car having covered less than 22,100 miles from new. The car is well known to us having been maintained by ourselves for long periods in recent years.

The Series II 330 GT 2+2 elegant lines were the work of Pininfarina. This second series differed from the first predominantly in the front-end treatment; the first series (1963-1965) having four headlights and the second (1965-1967) having the two. At the same time, the Borrani wire wheels gave way to ten-hole cast alloy wheels, still with the knock-off Rudge hubs, although the wire wheels remained available as an option and were opted on this car.


The engine is a SOHC per bank 4-litre 12-cylinder unit, engine tipo 209/66, with a total capacity of 3967cc. It has an outside ‘V’ spark plug arrangement, fitted with a bank of three twin choke Weber 40 DFI carburettors, a twin coil and a rear of engine-mounted distributor ignition system producing 300 bhp. The engine is based on the original Colombo ’short’ block design but was slightly longer with increased bore centres to provide adequate waterways with the larger diameter cylinder bores.


The engine Tipo was differentiated from the earlier Tipo 209 due to the number of mounting points: 209 had four, while 209/66, as here, had two. The engine is coupled to a 5-speed, all synchromesh gearbox and a final drive through a propeller shaft to a rigid rear axle. Whereas, early Series I cars had a 4-speed gearbox with an electronically operated overdrive.


This left-hand drive example was imported into Spain by Concesionario Tayre, S.L. in June 1967 and has recently completed a three-year, more than 3,600 working hours, nut and bolt restoration having spent its life in Spain having had two long-term Spanish owners from new. It is in its back in its original colour combination of Grigio Notte 18933 Met over Nero Franzi with its original Connolly leather intact and original. The car is located at our workshops in the UK.


This example also has a special rear seat arrangement from new adding to its GT capabilities and credentials. The car is a concours winner having won the Gold Cup Best Classic Car award at the 2017 Autobello Meeting in Madrid, Spain, a testament to the quality of the work. Having now road-tested the car ourselves, it is undeniably one of the best examples mechanically and cosmetically we have seen and has covered 78,000km from new.
