Every Ferrari is a special car. But periodically Ferrari makes a car that is intended to be extra-special, a car that is destined to be an important part of Ferrari history right from its introduction. The Challenge Stradale is one of these cars. Starting with the already excellent 360 Modena as its base, the goal was to create a low-production track day focused car. Almost every aspect of the car was changed and improved for more performance: more power was available from the engine, throttle response was improved, shifting time was decreased, steering wheel feedback was enhanced, and Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes were added. The car was made lighter by using carbon seats and carbon mirrors, stripping the interior of sound deadening, using a lighter weight exhaust, and using lighter weight body parts. 

This particular Challenge Stradale is even more special: only 378 Challenge Stradale cars were ever produced for the US market, and only two of the total number of cars made worldwide were painted the stunning Le Mans Blue color. This is the only one produced with the gray/navy Alcantara interior, making this a true “one of one” example. On consignment with my dealership, it has only covered 9,500 miles since new, and is in truly excellent cosmetic and mechanical condition. A major service, including the all-important timing belts change, was just completed in March 2016, and all “sticky” parts in the interior were refinished. All accessories (books, tools, etc.) are present, as well as a full service history going back to new, including the original window sticker.

This is a very unique opportunity to acquire an amazingly rare example of an already rare and special car. The Challenge Stradale is an important car in Ferrari’s modern history, and is requisite for any serious Ferrari collection.
