Lot #5041 2002 FERRARI 360 MICHELOTTO LEMANS RACE CAR
Lot #5041 - This car was modified by Michelotto to N-GT specification for competition in the GT championship 2001 and 2002 as well as several races in the 2003 season. The car's racing career ended in 2004 in N-GT specification, Micheletto boosted the 360's 3.6 Liter V8 to 430hp, an impressively high figure even with the required 30.8mm air restrictors. To match the power upgrade, a sequential gearbox was fitted to the N-GT's, giving the car blisteringly quick gear changes. Michelotto tightened the suspension with stiffer shocks and springs, added an adjustable anti-roll bar and removed all non-essential weight. With wider fenders and spoilers front and rear, the 360 N-GT was approximately 200 pounds lighter than the 360 Challenge. The Challenge was a track only car. It was a non-road legal variant of the Modena that shed 120kg of weight by use of carbon fiber and stripping out of all the road car's luxuries, such as leather interior coverings, electric windows and mirrors. The car boasted a fully stripped-out racing interior with full integrated welded in roll cage and fire extinguisher. Lightweight BBS 18" alloys, challenge rear grille and Plexiglas rear engine cover cosmetically distinguished the car from the standard 360. The Modena's advanced electronic suspension system with integrated ASR was dropped in favor of conventional racing BOGE dampers. These changes lowered the car by an inch over the Modena while removing the electronic safety net of the road-going car. The engine performance was left the same as the Modena (at 400bhp) with the focus on handling, weight reduction and weight balance improvements. The Challenge was only available in F1 automatic variant, no manual cars were produced. The biggest differences in driving were attributed to the weight reduction and massive handling improvements through the use of up rated stiffer and uprated aluminum suspension flam blocks (bushes). Includes a Ferrari S.p.A Certificate of Origin showing serial #2024 and signed by then Ferrari CEO Jean Todt.
