Description

Finished in Rosso Corsa and Nero with a desirable 6-speed manual gearboxUK-supplied, right-hand drive showing just 12,600 milesOffered with a UK V5c. MOT tested until 23/04/20Full cambelt service by Greypaul Edinburgh Ferrari in October 2018 The Ferrari F355 is now considered 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 F355 Berlinetta burst onto the world stage in the Spring of 1994, with the Targa GTS and Spider following in 1995. The new car shared almost exactly the same dimensions as its predecessor, the 348, yet it was virtually a new car, as its flowing coachwork indicated. Many hours of wind tunnel testing influenced the harmonious shape which incorporated an F1-style flat bottom with channelled airflow generating enough down force to offset any lift.The F355's name is derived from its 3.5-litre V8 engine and five valves per cylinder - as denoted by the Cinquevalvole' inscription on the rocker covers, and this longitudinally mounted power unit generates an impressive 374bhp at a spine-tingling 8250rpm. The con-rods are titanium alloy, the clutch is housed in magnesium alloy, and the Bilstein shock absorbers use electronic sensors to provide active damping. In 1994, the Ferrari F355 was a technological tour de force. Around Ferrari's 1.86 mile Fiorano test track, the F355 was two seconds a lap faster than the 12-cylinder, 512 TR and that level of performance, combined with its sensational shape, ensured its success on the world stage.This particular example is a right-hand drive 1997 Ferrari F355 Spider registered in the UK on 21/04/97 to its first owner. Finished in Rosso Corsa with a Nero interior, this striking car is fitted with the more desirable manual gearbox and was specified from new with air conditioning, a stereo CD player, and black brake callipers. Accompanying the car is the service book which records the latest service in October 2018 carried out at Graypaul Edinburgh Ferrari where the car was the recipient of a major service including cambelts, resulting in an invoice of 2,699.The car has had four former keepers and is supplied with a UK V5c, an MOT until 23/04/20, its original handbooks in their leather wallet and its toolkit. This, highly sought-after, 6-speed manual F355 Spider finished in a classic colour combination is now showing just 12,600 miles and is undoubtedly one of the finest 355s on the market today
