The Model: Ferrari has always been on the move to improve and the F355 is the perfect example of the drive that Enzo instilled in his team. While the 348 series had been quite successful, the next generation saw developments that made Ferrari even greater. Through a combination of increased engine displacement plus the addition of a fifth valve to each cylinder (noted by the addition of the last “5” to model designation), as well as other little things like titanium alloy connecting rods, a solid 375 HP was achieved. Always moving forward, 1977 saw the introduction of an improved Bosch Motronic unit, which tweaked performance as well as slightly better mileage. Shifting was accomplished through a 6-speed manual transmission with computer controlled “no pedal” clutch, which added to the drivability of these awesome machines. No wonder the F355 was the most commercially successful model Ferrari had seen to that time, and why today they are sought after not only as collectibles, but for the enjoyment they bring to their owners.

 

The Car: Our consignor purchased this F355 Spider directly from the original owner, who had purchased the car new in Florida. It was stored in secure lodging facilities, was always pampered and given tended to by the local Ferrari dealership. Rather striking with its Rossa Corsa exterior finish, it also sports a tan top to match the interior. Our consignor did say that he doubts the original owner ever put the top down and he knows he has not since he bought it a few years ago. It was recently treated to a full service including belts, and carries a clean CarFax report. Our consignor says there this car is just as it was when delivered new, no paint work, all original soft top, glass and electronics. Audio entertainment is provided by a Sony unit, but the sounds coming from that exhaust is better than almost any rock concert or symphony performance. Also included are two sets of original keys, books and manuals plus a set of factory luggage that has never been unpacked plus custom-fitted car cover. One of the best examples to ever carry the sign of the Prancing Horse, this F355 Spider could be a shining jewel in anyone’s collection.
