Description

1997 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta
Registration no. R929 MMO
Chassis no. ZFFXR41C000110412

Hailed by Autocar as "the best Ferrari since the 246 GT Dino", the F355 arrived in 1994 and despite a capacity disadvantage of 1.5 litres proved capable of lapping Ferrari's Fiorano test track three seconds quicker than the formidable 512TR. Despite its stupendous performance, the F355 was no mere 'racer on the road' but a thoroughly modern automobile incorporating much state-of-the-art passenger-car technology. The heart of the F355, though, was its phenomenal 3.5-litre V8 engine. Equipped with four overhead camshafts and five valves per cylinder - a layout borrowed from Ferrari's Formula 1 engine - this remarkable unit produced a claimed 370bhp at 8,250rpm, with 268lb/ft of torque available from 5,000 to 6,500 revs. A six-speed gearbox, mounted transversely behind the longitudinally disposed engine, ensured a sufficiency of ratios to keep the motor on the boil whatever the situation.

This four-owner example comes with a large history file containing past MoTs and servicing bills and a fully stamped Ferrari service booklet. The last service, including a change of cam belts, was carried out in May 2019. Currently displaying a total of 54,650 miles on the odometer, the car comes complete with a full tool kit in its leather pouch, and is described by the private vendor as in very good condition for its age and mileage.
