FOR SALE; Stunning 355 F1 Spider // Iconic Rosso Corsa / Crema leather combination.

RHD, UK Supplied, Electric seats, Electric Hood, Capristo sports exhaust, Power windows, Electric heated mirrors, Adjustable sports suspension, ABS, Pioneer Radio and CD player.

This cherished example is finished in the classic shade of Rosso Corsa which gleams beautifully all around the car accentuating the clean, cohesive styling that helped the 355 earn its title as one of the greatest production sports cars of its time. The paintwork is in fantastic condition and in keeping with the cars age and use, likewise the contrasting black soft-top remains in great condition and free from any marks or tears. Lights are clear and free from cracks or marks, with fitment and finish of surrounds and trim in excellent order. The hood arrangement nestles nicely behind the rear seats, attesting to an excellent design that does well not to disrupt the flowing lines of this wonderful convertible.Please visit our website for a full write up and additional photographs.

Sit behind the wheel of the 355 and the level of quality is immediately evident from inside. The piped crema leather seats contrast beautifully against the black leather wrapped around the top of the dash, with the Bordeaux carpets again working perfectly to create an elegant and sophisticated feel to the interior. This stunning example shows minimal signs of wear to the vulnerable seat bolsters, whilst the airbag insert retains good fit and appearance.

The major difference between the V8 engine in the 348 and 355 was the introduction of a 5-valve cylinder head. This new head design allowed for better intake permeability and resulted in an engine that was considerably more powerful. A hoarse bark greets the starter, then the engine settles to a deep, resonant idle. As the revs begin to rise however, the flat-plane crankshafts, valve gear, induction system and exhaust all combine to create at first a purposeful growl of which soon rises to a breathtaking F1-style scream through the higher revs. This example presents in perfect mechanical health having benefited from careful ownership and regular servicing throughout its life.

The classic 5 spoke Speedline wheels are in unmarked condition wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sports – all of which show plenty of tread. The brakes perform as they should, with no adverse pitch, pull or drone. The black calipers are free from chips or corrosion and complete the overall fantastic condition of this Ferrari.

First registered on 09/10/1998 this 355 F1 Spider has enjoyed careful ownership throughout its life. Upon inspecting the extensive history file there are a number of invoices carried out by highly regarded specialists, backed up by a healthy maintenance log book showing routine servicing carried out from new. Having just returned from a major service by Autofficina in May this year – to which cam belts, drive belts, alternator belts and power steering belts were all replaced alongside new engine mounts – this well cared for Ferrari is ready to be driven and enjoyed by its next custodian.

The original leather owners wallet with all supporting handbooks are present in the history file alongside a spare key.

The car is supplied having had an extensive intake inspection. Warranty, Finance, Part Exchange and Worldwide shipping are all available on request.
