The Ferrari F355 (Type F129) is a sports car manufactured by Italian car manufacturer Ferrari produced from May 1994 to 1999.
Apart from the displacement increase from 3,4 L (3.405 ccm) to 3,5 L (3.495 ccm), the major difference between the V8 engine in the 348 and F355 is 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.
In 1997, the Formula One-style electrohydraulic-operated automated manual paddle-shift transmission was introduced and the cars equipped with this transmission were called F1.
The F355 Spider debuted in 1995, its Pininfarina-penned lines honed by 1,800 hours in the wind tunnel, resulted in a blend of elegant style and aerodynamic performance. For the first time on a Ferrari automobile, the automated manual soft-top was powered electronically. In 1997, the Spider was offered with the F1 transmission available as an option. A total production of 3.717 units, of which 2.664 were produced with the 6-speed manual transmission and only 1.053 were produced with the F1 transmission.
This low mileage example needs some care. The roof's not coming off and the paint has cracks in a few places.
