The F355 Spider was first introduced to the public in Monaco in 1995. With a stress-bearing, semi-monocoque steel chassis that has variable-section and tubular front and rear sub-frames, the F355 incorporated Ferrari’s Formula 1 technology of the day and retained much of the performance of its hardtop sibling. Press reviews of the F355 Spider raved about this mid-engine supercar’s blistering performance, luxury, and looks. Dealers could hardly keep new examples on their showroom floor, and the F355 would become Ferrari’s best-selling car yet. Three different body styles were available: Berlinetta, the targa-style GTS, and the F355 Spider.
Equipped with the desirable six-speed manual transmission, the F355 Spider on offer is presented in the striking and beautiful color combination of Giallo Modena over black leather. Originally titled in Illinois before being registered at the beginning of 1997 in Connecticut, the Spider had only completed 6,258 miles by 2005. The F355 resided on the East Coast for several years, before being acquired by the current owner in 2012. Today, the car has been driven only 17,500 miles since new.
Boasting a desirable color combination, the car is accompanied by a set of owner’s manuals and tools in their respective leather folio and case, the compressed air bottle, and a clean CARFAX report. Following a fresh engine-out service in 2017, the F355 has only been driven an additional 300 miles since. Furthermore, it has recently had all its notorious “sticky buttons” replaced and refinished by Sticky RX. This is truly a shining example of one of Ferrari’s most-loved models which is ready to drive and enjoy.
