Ferrari F355 Spider

If dreams could come true... The question is not if, but when! This absolutely amazing Ferrari F355 Spider in Blu Pozzi is the perfect proof. Only 2 lucky owners have experienced this by themselves. Furthermore, the car is in great shape and has recently been serviced by the Official Dutch Ferrari Dealer Kroymans, including replacement of the timing belts. So, the only right question is not whether, but when do you intend to guide the sparkling aluminum gear shift through the characteristic H-pattern of this manual beauty? She’s waiting for you! And we do as well.

History & condition

On June 27, 1996, the Spider was original German delivered. The 1st owner lived in the idyllic place called Horb am Neckar, near the Swiss border. Looking at the overall condition, the Ferrari has had a great life out there. Nevertheless, in 2000 Germany was exchanged for the Netherlands. Of course, we don't mind at all… From then on the F355 stayed in the same family for 20 years. Until we got our hands on it. Recent maintenance (December 2019) at Ferrari Dealer Kroymans (including replacement of timing belts) ensures that the 90s supercar is technically in perfect shape. However, it might just miss out on prizes at Concours d’Elegance. But that’s only good news to those who want a Ferrari for the driving experience, like your 2 predecessors.

Interior & exterior

Enthusiasts who appreciate seeing a Ferrari in different colors than Ferrari-red will love this F355 for sure. You might expect something else, but the original owner was attached by Rosso Corsa in the beginning anyway. It took less than 3 years to let the German realize that Blu Pozzi would let it distinguish in a brilliant way. It’s one of our personal favorites, so you don't have to ask whether we support his choice...
Behind the black soft-top (or in front, when it’s open) you’ll find an equally black interior. The typical 90s dashboard with its round instruments and chrome finish is pure nostalgia. What a classic! The aluminum sports pedals and gear shift also contrast beautifully with the Nero leather upholstery and tempt to be touched.

Technique & performance

Anyone who understands how to handle the manual gearbox the right way, will hear a characteristic click while changing gears. However, when the right pedal is hitting the floor, the sound of 380 sizzling horses dominates anyway. Great stuff. The atmospheric Ferrari-V8 has a capacity of 3.5 liters and is capable of beautiful things: 0-100 km/h within 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 297 km/h are figures to be taken very seriously. Although we don’t expect a serious, but rather a happy look on your face when you visit the nearest tunnel, if you know what we mean…

Kind regards,
Prins Classics
