2. Model History

The Ferrari 355 Evolved From The Then Dated Ferrari 348 Model, With Many Purist Of Ferrari Buyers Seeing This New Model As A Huge Step Forward For The Italian Car Making, Heralding The Return Of The Beautiful Ferrari After The Brash Brutality Of The 1980`s Machines. The Maranello Factory First Showcased The 355 Design In 1994 At The Geneva Motor Show, With Two Out Of The Three Models Planned, With These Being The Fabulous Berlinetta Coupe And The Targa Versioned GTS, However Those Seeking A True Open Top Convertible Needed To Wait A Further Twelve Months Before The Sensational Spider Became Available In 1995. The First Buyers Had One Transmission Option Being The Six Speed Manual Box, However In 1997 The Factory Also Include The Automatic F1 Style As An Option And On UK Numbers Produced, These Are Some Of The Rarest To Now Find, As A Total Of 434 Vehicles Had Been Assigned To Ferrari Main Agents, With Just A Small Number Of 139 Being F1 Specified. The Ferrari 355 Is Still Viewed As Being One Of The Most Distinctive Designs Ever Created, With The Beautiful Sculptured Body Being The Ultimate Test For The Designers From Pininfarina, As They Wanted To Design An Elegantly Bodied Masterpiece, Which Still Would Generate The Very Best Performance Statistics, With Both Of These Main Stipulations Taking Well Over 1300 Man Hours In The Factory Wind Tunnel To Complete The Analysis Correctly. The Ferrari Engine For The 355 Was Also Improved From The 348 Predecessor, Now Fitted With A Three Point Five Litre V8, Five Valve Cylinder Head, This Produced A More Than Healthy 375 Brake Horse Power, Which Would Accelerate Both Driver And Passenger From 0/62 MPH In Just 4.9 Seconds, Would Then Further Climb To An Electrically Limited Top Speed Of 183 MPH And Was All Available, With Or Without The Electric Canvas Roof In Place.

Chassis Number 113964 Was Firstly Supplied By Maranello Ferrari Surrey In The November Of 1998 And Since This Date Of First Registration, Being Just Under Twenty Years, Our Offering Has Only Had A Mere 35551 Miles Applied From New, To Which If We Break This Down Further Is Approximately Just 1800 Miles Per Annum. However Regardless Of This Current Sensational Mileage Reading This Ferrari 355 Spider Has Been Maintained To An Exacting Standard With Historical Visits Logged With Ferrari & Ferrari Specialist Service Centres Completed At 5665, 10037, 12383, 15597, 16427, 20185, 21731, 22927, 23631, 23956, 24080, 28241, 34496 & 34751, 34962, 35067 Miles, With The Very Last Visit Carried Out By The Ferrari Centre Who Had Been Instructed To Complete A Full Service, With A New Clutch Replacement And Cam Belt Change.
