Are you playing Speed's Online Fantasy Bid Game? If not, this is the perfect chance to start, as it's just about to hit the auction block – Bid away, you could end up winning a prize, such as an Apple iPad. These Ferrari 360s can typically be had for anywhere from $75,000 to $95,000... but this is Mr. Hendrick's personal low-mileage car and it's on the Barrett-Jackson stage, so our guess is that a $100,000+ winning bid is certainly possible.
With that out of the way, let's take a look at this particular machine. Saying that Rick Hendrick owns a couple of cars is like saying the crowd at the 2011 Barrett-Jackson auction likes to throw back a couple of drinks. As an auction night marches on, the bartenders tip jars fill up faster and prices start to climb. Rick Hendrick is hoping they don't cut anyone off because a few of his cars will be rolling across the stage... including his 2002 Ferrari 360 Modena F1 Spider.
Looking splendid in its traditional red paint, the drop-top Italian sports car shows just 1,936 miles on the odometer. Only 379 convertible paddle-shift cars were built and this one was kept inside when the weather was anything other than sunny. We're guessing it drove it a little more aggressively than he plans to drive his new Chevrolet Volt.
