Lot 224

2004 Ferrari 360 Challenge Stradale

  • Chassis no. ZFFDU57A040139182

Sold for $258,500

  • One of approximately 378 examples specified for the United States
  • Currently showing just 3,847 miles
  • Formerly owned by Always Evolving founder Roger Rodas
  • Recent timing belt service and new Pirelli tires
  • Minimally driven and beautifully maintained

Based upon the popular 360 Modena, the Challenge Stradale saw a vast number of changes to increase performance and driving excitement. One hundred and ten kilograms of weight were shed through the prolific use of aluminium and carbon fiber. The interior was stripped of creature comforts, even carpeting, in an effort to increase performance. Total output was raised to 425 bhp, and the car’s paddle-shift transmission shift-times were improved via new software. The Challenge Stradale utilized carbon-ceramic brakes as standard, drastically improving both handling and braking performance by eliminating brake fade and shedding 16 kilograms of weight.

Delivered in October 2004, chassis number 139182 was appointed with carbon fiber racing seats and a leather headliner, and finished with red-painted brake calipers, and a three-colored Italian racing stripe over traditional rosso corsa. The Ferrari was soon acquired by Roger Rodas, the founder of Always Evolving in Valencia, California, and a regular competitor in various racing series, as well as a passionate collector and enthusiast. Following Rodas’ untimely passing, the car soon passed into new ownership.

In March, the consignor submitted the Stradale to Ferrari of Beverly Hills for service, including an annual fluid service and a major timing belt service. The windshield was replaced and new Pirelli P Zero Corsa tires were mounted on the handsome 14-spoke alloy wheels.

Currently showing 3,847 miles, this minimally raced and beautifully maintained Challenge Stradale is well prepared for its next caretaker. It is accompanied by manuals and a tool kit, offering its next owner scintillating hot laps at track events, or the opportunity to present with pride at FCA events.
