    360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    OK, guys, don't shoot the messenger, this is what I just got in from a very reliable source (yeah, I know, I said it before... ):

    1. the 360 Modena successor will be a completely new car, not having much in common with the 360. This decision has been taken due to the tough competition Ferrari faces from the Lamborghini Gallardo. This is also the reason why the previous information was contradictory.
    2. the name will be very likely Monza or Mugello, not Modena Evoluzione.
    3. german Ferrari dealers had an official introduction date of 30th sept. 2004 for the Berlinetta. This date has been postponed to 2005. Official presentation is very likely to be at the Geneva Auto Show in 2005.
    4. the reason for the delay was some dispute regarding the design and especially the interior design which wasn't satisfactory yet
    5. the Spider will be introduced around 6 months after the Berlinetta, probably after the factory summer vacation in august 2005
    6. Engine: 4.6 l, "almost" 500 HP, better power/weight ratio than the Gallardo
    7. first comparison tests showed that prototypes were faster than the Gallardo on specific test tracks
    8. Design: front and rear very similar to the Ferrari Enzo, one reason why the 360 successor is internally already called the "little Enzo".

    And if you guys are nice to me, I might even be able to post a picture soon. Don't know much about the quality though.

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    i've been nice !

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    Oh boy, the spirits I've awaken...

    We have been promised to get one picture showing the front of a prototype but I didn't see it yet and I don't know when we're getting it. So maybe I should have kept my mouth shut and wait until we actually have the picture.

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    Photo's please!!!!!!!! Pretty please with sugar on top!!

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    Oh boy oh boy, now that one tries to concentrate and get exited about the upcoming 997TT Ferrari comes up with the "little Enzo".

    What's one to do?

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    "Mullego" would be a poor choice, sounds too similar to "Murcielago". I know this sounds incredibly ignorant, but waht is "Mullego"?

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    Dufficult decision...i'm also concentrated on the 997TT....but now...

    we must wait....

    Ciao

    Mugello (not mullego) is a famous racetrack in Italy.

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    ...also, i may as well join the fray and beg for pictures:

    pleasepleaseplease i would LOVE to see this "little enzo".

    lol, just thinking about it, it would be great if they named it "dino" because of the little enzo nickname...though of course, it not being a v6, and the fact that the name already represents so much, they couldn't.

    The " Dino " would be perfect name for " son of Enzo ". While we are at at , how about naming that Maserati MCC GT racer " Piero " since it's basically the illegitimate son of the "Enzo" .

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    Well, that's interesting news!!!

    WHERE ARE THE PICS ? (yes, of course I've been nice...)

    Totally new design, although the Modena still looks fresh (and after I got finally used to its design )?
    Well, they did the same thing with the 355, didn't they? Perhaps it's a great chance, as I never really found the Modena's front with its double air intake to be beautiful...

    The latest news I heard/read:
    - the car will have 480 hp (so that's pretty close to "almost" 500 HP); 4.6 l would mean up to 500 Nm torque
    - the front will have a round middle air intake and look quite aggressive
    - the rear will have Enzoish lights
    - larger side intakes as well (would like that; always prefered the side intakes of the 355 to those of the 360)
    - the factory will be closed for visitors from May, 1st until August, 31st; perhaps production will start at that time?

    BTW, I'd prefer Monza instead of Mugello.

    here is info from supercars.net amanesence
    And from a Ferrari parts specialist :

    hi

    i was in maranello last weekend and i can tell you the new car looks very nice. i saw a picture allready of the cars and it will be this year that we see it. for the visits in maranello even if you get a factory visit you will not see the prototype cars they are on a area you dont get in. the front of the car has a round middle air intake and looks very agresive for the rear the lights of the enzo type that is also true. the back of the car will be bigger and the side airintake too. they told me 465hp i hope they bring it up more till it comes the end of this year.

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    i apologise i didn;t see the post before me, sory again I promise to be nice

    rossi,

    They were not digital pictures, they had to be sent off to be developed and it takes a while

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    All new car
    4.6 litres
    Almost 500hp

    I'm almost fainting!!!

    Now: what was RC saying about being nice to him...

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    "paitence is a virtue", so true.

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    this really sounds awesome and i hope it's true -- this is the best management decision they could make IMO. the 360 is still going strong (so no need to hurry) and an interims evo version with not enough HP to kill the gallardo and a short life cycle would have damaged the heritage in a lot of aspects.

    little enzo... aaahh!! one for me please!!

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    Although this may be a "little enzo", I fear that the price will be anything but "little", however, this is often true with The Car's of Ferrari.....

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    Dude Rc, are you drawing the pictures or developing them, I mean 3 days is a long time to develop pictures from were I come from, and I come from a third world contry, Just kiding, but seriosly could you estimate when they are going to be finished, ("patience is a virtue" that I havn't got) And again I'm kiding, whenever its done Ill be happy

    Re: 360 Modena Successor Update - a little Enzo!

    Just spoke to a dealer. He confirmed the date of spring 2005 and the fact that it will be a new car. According to his words, the evolution design was not satisfactory, whatever that means.

    We rely on our sources and our source didn't send the picture yet. I would kick his bu.. but unfortunately he's stronger, taller and...wealthier than me.

    That are at least two arguments not to do so...
