Description

Despite its prodigious performance the F355 was no mere ‘racer on the road’, but a thoroughly modern automobile employing state-of-the-art technology, in the form of computer-controlled variable damping, to reconcile the differing require- ments of ultimate roadholding and acceptable comfort. A light-action clutch, proportional power-assisted steering, and driver’s air bag were other features calculated to make the car reassuringly user-friendly.

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 6,500rpm.
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 beautiful low-mileage 355 Spider was supplied new during October 1999, finished in the stunning combination of Nero Daytona black with a Cognac leath- er interior. The Spider has covered a mere 24,000 miles (38,400 kilometres) from new with two recorded keepers, supported by Carfax proof of ownership and mileage, original service books and leather tool case.

For those seeking a well maintained modern Ferrari in one of the best colour combinations available, this has to be right at the top of the list.
