  • Just 25,800 miles on the odometer
  • Entered from a private collection
  • Last belt service completed c.500 miles previous by Shiltech Ferrari specialists
  • 1 of just 1,053 F355 Spiders fitted with the F1 transmission

Introduced at the May 1994 Geneva Salon, the F355 was the standard bearer for a new generation of more technologically advanced 'small' Ferraris. Based around a robot-welded sheet steel monocoque equipped with all-round independent double-wishbone suspension, ventilated ABS disc brakes and utilised a new computer-controlled electronic damper system that self-adjusted depending upon the feedback gleaned from various road speed, brake pressure, suspension loading, and steering sensors. The F355 was revealed to be seven seconds and four seconds a lap faster round Ferrari's Fiorano test track than the 348 and 512TR respectively. Cradled by a separate subframe, its longitudinally mid-mounted 'quad-cam' 3496cc V8 boasted F1-style titanium con-rods, forged alloy pistons, three-inlet and two-exhaust valves per cylinder (40 in total) and the latest Bosch M 2.7 engine management system. Developing an incredible 380bhp and 268lbft of torque, it drove the rear wheels via a neatly integrated transverse six-speed manual gearbox. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 4.6 seconds, 0-100mph in 10.6 seconds and 185mph, the F355 was an undoubted supercar. Unveiled at the May 1995 Monaco Grand Prix meeting, the F355 Spider benefited from a strengthened body-shell and specially reinforced windscreen, it permitted 'wind in the hair' 180mph motoring!

Manufactured new in 1999, the F355 Spider offered was supplied new by Ferrari North America main agent Grand Prix Motors Ltd to its first owner in the State of Washington, being delivered to said first owner on the 16th of June that year. Finished in Giallo Fly Yellow paintwork complemented by a Black leather interior upholstery with Yellow stitching and a Black hood, the Ferrari is 1 of just 1,053 F355 Spiders fitted with the F1 transmission. Imported into the United Kingdom in c.2018, the Ferrari has resided in a private collection since and has now covered just 25,800 miles. Maintained by Ferrari specialists Shiltech since arrival in the United Kingdom, the F355 last received a belt service just c.500 miles previous. Benefitting from paintwork restoration in 2021, the Ferrari further received attention with Shiltech to the roof, gearbox, and handbrake, as well as a new timing sensor in 2022.

The vendor subsequently rates the Ferrari as in ‘excellent’ condition in regards to the bodywork, paintwork, gearbox, electrical equipment, and engine, and in ‘very good’ condition regarding the interior upholstery. Offered with a history file that contains the original book pack including the owner’s handbook and stamped service book, invoices for work completed by Shiltech, and a current V5C document showing zero former keepers, ‘S341 LEP’ is offered with an MOT certificate until July 2024. This Ferrari will no doubt give a lucky new owner great pleasure and pride of ownership, especially presenting in one of the most desirable Ferrari colour schemes.
