1988 Ferrari F1 355 Spider

20,000 miles from new - Rare Right Hand Drive


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 requirements 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 and rare right hand drive 355 spider  is finished in the stunning Nero  black with cream leather and contrasting black stitching. It has covered just 20k from new and is supplied with full Ferrari service history – the car has been maintained regardless of cost, in remains at home in a humidified storage. This colour combination is very rare and beautiful in every detail. The car has been subject to fastidious and detailed maintenance over the years with a car experienced car collector. All factory options and outstanding sound system included in the sale. This is a truly stunning car with very low mileage.

Owner Comment: “As a young boy I read a news report in the newspaper, it said “Frank Sinatra takes dog for a walk” in the picture he was driving a black 355 spider with cream leather.”
