Description

“Complex, sophisticated, and very fast, it is the quantum leap that has enabled the Ferrari V8 to run in proud parallel with the 456GT and 550 Maranello,” enthused Car magazine’s review of the F355. First presented to the motoring press in May 1994, the F355 effectively re-forged the reputation of Ferrari’s V8 which, 328 and 348 notwithstanding, had suffered since the introduction of the Mondial ‘world car’. The latter, with its four seats, well-appointed interior, and relatively soft ride, was considered far too sensible to be a ‘proper’ Ferrari; the F355 though, was cast in the mould of that great driver’s car, the Dino 246GT. Just how great an advance it was may be gauged from the fact that the F355’s best time around Ferrari’s Fiorano test track was three seconds quicker than the formidable 512 TR.

This original right-hand drive example has a modest recorded mileage of 21,000. Offered with Ferrari main dealer service history, more recently the car has had a major service by HR Owen, which included a clutch replacement. Included in its thorough history file are of course the cars original books.
