The 360 Modena at the Geneva Motor Show
Copyright: Ferrari

Geneva, 9th March 1999 – The opening day of the Geneva Motor Show saw the official press launch of the new Ferrari Grand Tourer, the 360 Modena. Around fifty journalists attended this afternoon’s press conference given by Ferrari President, Luca di Montezemolo, Managing Director Paolo Marinsek, Enginerr Amedeo Felisa and Sergio Pininfarina. “This is a very important week for us,” commented Montezemolo, “because it marks the start of two new chapters for our company: this year’s Formula 1 World Championship and the 360 Modena. Just as Irvine’s success is a good omen for the coming season, so too I believe that the large number of you journalists present here at this press conference today, is a good sign for the new car.” The President then thanked all those involved in the 360 project for all their efforts. Then, Amedeo Felisa and Sergio Pininfarina went over the technical and styling characteristics of the car. In the afternoon, Michael Schumacher, just back from Australia was a visitor on the Ferrari stand and, accompanied by President Montezemolo, paid particular attention to the three 360 Modena (one in alloy grey, the new colour in the Ferrari range and two red ones.) “I like this car a lot,” said Schumacher. “I drove it recently and found it very light, with handling which is almost like a kart.” Schumacher also spoke about the forthcoming grand prix in Brazil. “We would be surprised if the gap to the McLarens is still the same.” Apart from the 360 Modena, the Maranello firm’s stand showed the other cars in the range: a F355 Spider in red, a blue 456 M Tour de France and a 550 Maranello in the same colour.
