Ferrari Challenge Stradale
A wonderful condition Ferrari Challenge Stradale finished in Rosso Corsa over Nero.
Commencing with the 348, Ferrari had started the first factory-backed, one-make race series for amateur and semi-professional racing drivers back in 1993, and the immensely successful Ferrari Challenge increased in popularity with the subsequent introduction of the F355 and 360 Modena. The latter first appeared on the grid in Challenge form in 2000, featuring a multitude of alterations making it more suitable for track use. Three years later, at the Geneva International Motor Show, Ferrari introduced the 360 Challenge Stradale, which in essence was a lightened version of the 360 Modena incorporating some of the racer's suspension and braking improvements while remaining sufficiently civilised for road use.
This car was ordered and carefully specified through Ferrari VIP, Italy by 17 times GP Podium winner, Norick Abe. Abe was one of the most famous and admired Japanese GP motor cycle rider. Famed for his pugnacious style and flare he was sadly killed in a road-bike collision on the 7th October 2007.
This car was tailored with a racing theme having the CS factory stripe, yellow brake callipers all the standard carbon fibre pieces and being a euro spec car has the full throttle exhaust system so sounds amazing. Having covered just 14,000 kms from new this immaculate car comes with a full Ferrari service history. A fine, rare example of this sought after collectors' car!
