Description

Ferrari's 355 is one of Pininfarina's most beautiful designs. The best 355's will be a good investment and the very rare 104 cars produced as “Limited Edition Fiorano” will definitely be the most sought collectables.

Here comes an immaculate European 355 "Limited Edition Fiorano" (not only Fiorano Package) you can owe with pride. Only 3 Ferrari 355 Limited Edition Fiorano were produced for Europe and this F1 Spider in the rare color combination grigio titanio & bordeaux leather, owned by a private collector, was delivered in Switzerland in June 1999.

In excellent original condition, fully serviced (incl. new timing belt). Very well maintained and minimally, but regularly used with only 27’900km (17'000mi) it is a perfect collectable, incl. copy of original bill, all other original paper/documentation and a complete maintenance booklet.

FERRARI 355 SERIE FIORANO (SOURCE: WIKIPEDIA)

For 1999, Ferrari introduced a limited production of F355 models designated "Serie Fiorano" Launched in March 1999, this limited production run of 100 planned units (104 actually produced) included a number of enhancements increasing the race track performance much closer to the Challenge versions:

- Competizione-derived Fiorano suspension pack, featuring wide track, stiffer springs, a thicker anti-roll bar
- Drilled and ventilated brake discs and competition brake pads
- Competizione-sourced steering rack
- Challenge rear grilles and enameled Scuderia Ferrari shields
- Carbon-fibre inserts (normally only available as expensive special order options): centre console, door sills and paddle shifters
- Suede-covered steering wheel

There were 100 Limited Series Fiorano units delivered to the U.S. market, 74 with the F1 transmission and 26 with the 6-speed manual. An additional 4 units were produced beyond the planned production for the U.S., with only 3 European models and one South African delivery.
