Which used Ferrari 360M coupe should I buy?

The most basic choice is whether to go for the Modena coupe or the Spider drop-top. This is entirely down to personal preference, but both look sensational. The Spider will be a bit more expensive, but when you're talking about a car that costs this much, the difference will mean nothing. Importantly, the Spider is no less thrilling to drive than the Modena. Performance isn't impaired and it doesn't feel too shaky.

Both versions are powered by the same mid-mounted 3.6-litre V8. At its howling, screaming best the engine knocks out 400bhp for thunderous performance and an awe-inspiring soundtrack. Later on, Ferrari released the Challenge Stradale, a more powerful 425bhp version. However, this is much more expensive, and we'd choose the more basic (if you can call it that) standard version. The other choice is whether to go for a manual gearshift or for F1-style paddles. We'd stick to the manual.
