Description

Regarded by many as the last really pretty Ferrari, the 355 was launched in early 1994 and shared most of its dimensions with its predecessor the 348, but was, in most respects, a brand new design although retaining the 'flying buttress' rear window styling cue which dated back to the 1965, 206 Dino GT. The Berlinetta and the Targa topped GTS, were available initially with the 355 Spyder joining the range about a year later.
An increase in capacity from 3.4 to 3.5 litres and a new 5 valve head, managed to produce 375 bhp from the longitudinally mounted V8 at a spine tingling 8,250 rpm and the innovative F1 electro-hydraulic, 'paddle-shift' automatic six-speed gearbox, combined with the instantly adjustable shock absorbers and extra engine power meant that the 355 was considerably more competent and consequently more enjoyable, than its predecessor.

This lovely, 1998, left-hand drive 355 Berlinetta F1, was delivered new to Switzerland and has been enjoyed by two owners. It's finished in classic Rosso Corsa with a factory bespoke interior featuring Carbon Fibre, Black leather and Red carpets. It was fitted from new with 'Challenge' side skirts and grill, ceramic shields, detailed black graphite wheels and a custom exhaust.
Complete with its dedicated tool kit (with belts and bulbs), a file containing invoices for around 20,000 Swiss francs for mechanical upkeep, all the normal manuals/service history, and its current MoT.
The car has been serviced by Ferrari dealers on a regular basis and the appropriate service records stamped.(below).

A great opportunity to acquire a well maintained, two owner, 355F1 with a full Ferrari history.
