The Caudron C.360 was a French racing aircraft built by Caudron in the early 1930s to compete in Coupe Deutsch de la Meurthe air races.

Design

The C.360 was a low-wing monoplane racer design to be powered by one 205 hp (153 kW) Régnier 6 engine, but lack of availability required the use of 170 hp (130 kW) Renault 4Pei Bengali engines in two of the three aircraft, which were re-designated C.362. The third C.360 airframe was completed with a 215 hp (160 kW) Régnier 6 engine and was re-designated C.366 Martinet.
