Description

"The Ferrari F355 was manufactured between May 1994 and 1999 and was an evolution of the Ferrari 348. It is a mid-engined, rear wheel drive, V8 powered two seater coupé. At launch, two models were available; the Coupé Berlinetta and the Targa topped GTS. The Spider (convertible) version was introduced in 1995. One major difference between the longitudinal V8 in the 348 and that in the 355, apart from the displacement increase from 3.4 to 3.5 litres, is that the F355 features a five valve per cylinder head that is considerably more powerful, producing 375bhp. The nomenclature does not follow the formula from the previous decades, i.e. engine capacity plus cylinder number - for example, the Ferrari 308 name comes from three litres plus eight cylinders, with the same for the 328, 348, 512 etc. This time, Ferrari used engine capacity plus number of valves per cylinder; proud to boast about this technological advancement, with the name 355 coming from 3.5 litre engine capacity and five valves per cylinder. The F355 has become the most popular model so far with over 11,273 cars manufactured of which 3,843 were Spiders.
This very good left hand drive 1996 Ferrari F355, fitted with the six speed manual gearbox, was supplied on 23rd May 1996 by Ferrari of Los Gatos in California. Whilst in the US the car only had two Californian owners and had only covered 35,000 miles from new before it was imported to the UK in February 2018 and put into storage. Finished in Giallo Fly with black leather interior, black hood and black hood cover, this F355 is supplied with original prancing horse wing shields, black brake calipers, tool bag and Ferrari car cover, and was fitted with a new cambelt at the end of 2020. It also comes with a UK V5C registration document, an MoT test certificate which expires in 2022 and a complete handbook pack. This lovely, ex-Californian Ferrari F355 represents good value for money and is in one of the most desirable Ferrari colour schemes."
