The first F355 rolled off the production line for the 1994 model-year, sporting a 3.5-liter V8 that made 375 BHP. That might not sound like much today, but back in the mid 90's, it was supercar territory. It was the first car to feature Ferrari's F1-style auto-manual gearbox, which was derived directly from the gearboxes in Ferrari Formula 1 cars. Press reviews of the F355 raved about this mid-engine supercars blistering performance, luxury, and looks. If the F40 was the ultimate incarnation of the 308/328 bloodline, then the F355 was the last model to use the familiar silhouette of this series of mid-engined sports cars. With simple lines penned by Ferrari's most popular design house, Pininfarina, the F355 is arguably one of the most elegant sports cars the firm has ever built. It followed in the footsteps of the Ferrari 348, which featured styling cues from the larger Testarossa. This featured side strakes in the doors and a slatted engine cover, and yet more slats covered the tail-lights. The F355 simplified things by getting rid of all the slats in favour of gaping air intakes, which fed cold air to the naturally aspirated V8 mounted behind the cockpit. The flying buttress design gave it a sporty profile, while the wide rear end and squat stance gave it head-turning looks. The engine was a development of the 348's V8, bored out to 3.5-litres, while the a five valve per cylinder head was bolted to each bank, hence the F355 name. Add in a flat-plane crankshaft that gave the car a distinct engine note, and peak torque made at a heady 8,250rpm, and the F355 was a car that needed its neck wrung to make the most of its performance. As one era was beginning, another was coming to an end: it was to be the last of the breed to be hand-built, with the 360 and later descendants moving to mass production. Our low mileage, genuine UK example had only 2 owners from new and comes in the best colour combination of Rosso Corsa paint and Crema Leather/Bordeaux carpets hide.
