What can we say, grab your Conolly leather driving gloves, row through the gated six-speed shifter, hear the howl of the glorious 3.5 liter v8, and awaken the senses and truly experience the visceral motoring of one of the finest mid-engine Ferraris ever produced
The Ferrari F355 was introduced in May 1994 as the successor to the widely coveted Ferrari 348. The 355 nomenclature was created from the engine capacity followed by the number of valves per cylinder. This mid motor Ferrari has a beautiful handmade 3.5 liter V8 with five valves per cylinder thus designating its model name the 355 (3.5 liters, five valves per cylinder.). For its time the F355 was groundbreaking and set a performance benchmark for other cars in its performance category. Ferrari with its flat plane crank V8 will wind up to 8250 rpm while producing its peak horsepower of 375 horses. 0-60 sprints can be achieved in 4.9 seconds, a quarter mile time of 12.9 seconds, and a top speed of 183 MPH, this Maranello based machine is capable of all sorts. This breed of Ferrari was produced during a time where brute horsepower was not the only part of the equation, but finesse, weight, size, and aerodynamics were in the forefront. This Pinafarina designed beauty was developed for wind tunnel designations and research time of over 1300 hours. The F355 was somewhat light with a dry weight slightly above 3000 pounds.
The most sought-after version of the 355 family the F355 Spider. Finding this car in a manual transmission is rare. Now imagine it with only 11,000 miles...Well, here it is.
