The Ferrari F355 is rightly considered to be one of the finest Ferraris of the modern era; featuring 380 bhp from the Formula 1-derived five-valves-per-cylinder V-8, a superbly precise chassis and a stunningly pretty, yet aerodynamic, Pininfarina-designed body. Another F1-inspired feature debuted that year: Ferrari’s new F1-style paddle-shifted gearbox, a feature that would quickly become a mainstay for the marque, yet this example retains the now sought-after traditional manual gearbox. This particular F355 Spider is finished in stunning Blu Swaters paintwork and dark blue roof and tonneau. Although factory records note Rosso as the original interior colour, the interior is presently trimmed in beige with Blu carpets. Its first owner took delivery in April 1996 in the Netherlands and remained there until at least 1998. Shortly thereafter, it was taken to France and its service book shows stamps from French dealers in 2001, 2004, 2005 and 2008. It presents in fine condition, having covered 48,000 km and benefits from a recent service at Charles Pozzi.
The Ferrari F355 is the iconic link between the classic small displacement V-8 Ferraris of the past and the more recent 200-mph supercars. This example would make a fine addition to any stable.
