Like other Ferraris, ‘360’ denotes the engines 3.6 litre capacity and Modena pays tribute to the birth place of Enzo Ferrari, Modena. At the heart of the 360’s development was its chassis, where Ferrari partnered with Alcoa (the 8th largest producer of aluminium in the world) to produce an entirely new space-frame chassis that was a staggering 40% stiffer than the steel one used in the F355. Despite its visual increase in size the 360 was in fact 28% lighter with the aid of the new chassis.
