Beschreibung

The Ferrari F355 is a modern classic, so beautiful, so well-engineered and so well received that it marked the beginning of the end of the old-guard ‘Ferraristi' philosophy that the only "real" Ferraris were ones with 12-cylinder engines. The Ferrari F355 Berlinetta and Targa GTS burst onto the world stage in the spring of 1994, with almost exactly the same dimensions as its predecessor the 348, yet it was virtually a new car, as its stunning coachwork indicated. Many hours of wind tunnel testing influenced the harmonious shape which incorporated an F1 style flat bottom with channeled air flow generating enough downforce to offset any lift.

The longitudinally mounted 3496cc V8 produced a stunning 374bhp at a spine-tingling 8250rpm, and the gearbox now had six speeds with a new type of synchromesh making changes so much smoother. New electronically adjustable shock absorbers varied their stiffness within milliseconds to suit the road surface. Around Ferrari's 1.86 mile Fiorano test track, the 355 was two seconds a lap faster than the 12-cylinder 512 TR and that level of performance combined with it's sensational shape made it a worldwide success story.

This left-hand drive F355 F1 Berlinetta was sold new on 31st May 1999 to Ferrari main dealer Testarossa Cars in Madrid. Finished in the beautiful combination of Grigio Titanium with Bordeaux Red leather interior, it was one of the last F355 models to leave the production line and featured an extremely expensive option package. Factory specifications included F1 gearbox, Challenge grill, painted brake calipers, very special carbon sports seats and Fiorano handling pack. This included a wider track, stiffer springs, thicker anti-roll bars, uprated ECU, competition steering rack and larger brakes.

Supplied with its original books, manuals, tool kit, 2 sets of keys, car cover, and original service book, there are a number of stamps in the book and the last one dates from a Ferrari main dealer in March 2015, when the car had covered just 8,733 kilometers. Now reading 8,793 kilometers or 5,462 miles from new, the condition of this car is exemplary. The Grigio paintwork is in pristine order and retains a superb shine. The Bordeaux interior is in virtually ‘new' condition with no wear to any components. The engine bay is stunning to behold and is best described as in Concours condition.

The overall condition of this vehicle needs to be seen to be truly appreciated. The history file contains a current MoT certificate until October 2016 and all NOVA documentation required for UK registration. This Ferrari is simply a ‘best of breed' example and is open to any inspection prior to the auction. F355s in this condition are rare and we are confident this one will not disappoint even the most hardened of experts, collectors or enthusiasts.
