Hi guys , is it possible to own a 360 at this price or do I really need to spend a lot more .what condition will it be in ? I have owned gtr's since being 18 but cops are making it hard to own one these days .

So I have been looking into buying a ferrari but I am worried about maintenance cost, driveability. People scare the crap out of me saying they always break down , are they really that poorly built. They tell me save your money and buy a r35 gtr.

They are not poorly built and don't always break down. If you maintain them properly with no short cuts then they definately will not break down.

At 75K you could probably get one but may need to spend some money to sort out any issues.

As I always say there is no Áheap Ferrari.

I don't understand the driveability comment. The driving is awesome as it should be with an exotic car.

Also, like I said to someone else on here who was scared of costs quite simply don't buy one.

The running costs when you buy a Ferrari from my end are irrelevant.

'Wattens' where are you!!!!!

I've only had to replace a clutch on a 360 and that's far from anything poorly built, I've owned nearly a dozen different 360's over the last 6 years, imports and Aussie delivered.

As for price of $75-$80k, it is possible, but it was more possible about a year ago, since then the price has stabilised and even gone up in the last 6 months. The price ranges right up to around the $150k mark. So basically if you do find one under $100k, don't expect anything good for the money, expect to have a never ending list of repairs and the car at the mechanics more than in your garage.

But as I said before, I've had no major issues other than clutch (needed replacing before it was fully worn as the clutch apparently glazed and/or cracked).

Maintenance costs on a 360 at an independent specialist is cheaper than maintaining my merc at a merc dealer (and the merc has many more problems).

They aren't poorly built from an Italian standard (well the later models aren't, I've never owned the early model 360's but they aren't meant to be as reliable.

I came from a skyline background as well, and owned an R35 for less than a month before I got rid of it because they are pretty shit to live with. I had a write up about it and basically the only good timing it had was the name and the launch control system (although personal preference) and I am still a Nissan fanboy but the r35 let me down.

Surprisingly enough parts on the gtr cost more than the 360 if you buy your Ferrari parts from Europe or the USA. I never needed to look for overseas parts on the r35 though. But maintenance costs on a 360 isn't bad unless you pick up a dog of an example to begin with.


You can say I'm wrong, but my garage doesn't agree with that statement!!!

Hang on.... a young bloke in a Datsun gets heat from the cops, so thinks driving a Ferrari will make that better!

I get more attention from the boys in blue in exotics than Datsuns...

I can't see 360s dropping to $75-80K for a while yet.. I wouldn't be pinning your hopes on that just yet.

At $89K this is the cheapest one on Carsales. Just had a $20K price drop too

It's a UK import, of which there are lots on the market now. This car seems OK - given it's thorough description - but there might be some questionable reliability history with some other imported ones
