The car looks great I like the idea as Jim observed it makes the front more attractive; look less like a space ship.

I understand that it is pure esthetic, but just for a mind game what would be its function. I assume that the channels would serve as vents for the air that flow over the radiators. Not sure that one would direct the air to the side of the car?

If my memory servers the Lotus Elise is a rear engine car and has large vents up front.
Another approach would be to have a channel facing backwards (lower end to the back) such as the McLaren F1 directing air over the car for whatever reason.

Is the hood made from metal or carbon?

No clearance issues with the wheels. And yes, once my business partners 550 is done, I'll post some pics of that.

No clearance problems with the wheels? I'm not a big aftermarket fan, but that's awesome looking! Very well done.

that's really a great looking car. i saw a similar hood on a custom modified 360 in japan. they had an article in Genroq magazine.

is your buddy planning to post pics after his 550 is done? i'm sure with the way your 360 turned out the 550 will be equally awesome.

The coilovers are height adjustable, just like stock. The shocks are valved differently and the springs have a much stiffer spring rate. The brakes are the two piece Brembos that save 6.5 lbs. per corner.

Are the challenge coilovers adjustable? Looks like your 360 is a little nose heavy. Also are the brakes stock or aftermarket?

Car looks great, keep up the good work.

I wish the 360 had a headlight more like the 550 next to it. Love the black backing behind the lights better than the body color on the 360 and now 575's.

I love HRE 547's on the 360 and the lowering makes it look pretty tough. Love the hood as it ads some zip to an otherwise docile front end.

Love the silver. Nice contrast of colors.

Matt, you need to getsome Stradale side skirts (sharper lines).

Looks great. I'm surprised there's not more of a market for rebodying Ferraris as per 'the old days' when one-offs seemed more common (well, they were limited, but for the numbers of classic Ferraris there seem to be a higher percentage).

Hamman is played out & nasty. My front & rear bumpers are from a Challenge car. Each one takes off about 26 lbs. from of the car.

Are the hood scoops purely aesthetic, or have you modified the car by adding cooling fans down below a la F50? If so, how does this affect downforce, etc.?

I put Challenge coilovers on the car, that's why it's so low. The 550 is my partners car, there is a bunch of stuff coming for that too.
