During the design phase of the F355, heavy emphasis was placed on increasing the overall drivability of the car. Combining the increased ease of use with a beautifully styled Pininfarina body that maintained the iconic wedge shape, the F355 hit home as a real winner for Ferrari in the 90’s. The 3.5 liter DOHC V8 remains one of the best sounding Ferrari V8 engines ever produced, especially when combined with a nice Tubi style exhaust system. Total production for the F355 showcased the consumer demand and love for the car with a little over 11,000 being produced over its 5-year run.
The example on offer here, Chassis number ZFFXR48A9W011357, is a 1998 model year F355 Spider fitted with a 6-speed manual transmission and finished in the stunning color combination of NART Blue over Tan leather interior. The car has been very well maintained throughout its life and has spent the last 7 years as a dry California based vehicle. This 355 benefits from an engine out major service in June of 2018, leaving the car in fantastic mechanical condition. According to the included CarFax, this vehicle has had 6 previous owners and was delivered new to New York where it spent the first 4 years of its life, showing only 3,940 miles in 2002 when it was sold to its second owner, located in Pennsylvania. The car stayed in PA for a year and then was sold to its third owner in Plainfield, Illinois showing 6,100 miles on the odometer. The car stayed in Illinois until 2012 when it was sold to its 4’th owner in California, now with 8,341 miles on the odometer. The car changed hands once more, staying in California before ending up with its current owner who is also located in Southern California as well. As the car sits it is likely one of the best currently available on the market. Given its recent major servicing and careful past ownership, the car currently needs nothing and remains in fantastic condition.
