1998 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta

[ translate ]

Chassis No. ZFFXR41A4W0109798
One of the first things Luca Codero di Montezemolo did after being appointed President of Ferrari in 1991 was order wholesale changes to the entire lineup of road cars. Replacing the 348, the F355 was a vastly superior vehicle both in terms of styling thanks to its perfectly sculpted Pininfarina bodywork, and in the blistering performance of its 3.5-liter V8 engine. Equipped with five valves per cylinder, titanium alloy connecting rods, and a Bosch M5.2 engine control unit, the much-improved power plant produced a claimed 380 horsepower and 268 lb-ft of torque. Underneath, a completely redesigned aerodynamic underbody and telescopic electronic dampers made the F355 over five seconds faster than its predecessor around Ferrari's Fiorano test track.
Available in Berlinetta, Spider, and targa-top GTS body styles from 1995, the lighter, rigid chassis of the fixed hardtop Berlinetta when optioned with the six-speed gated manual transmission was the preferred driver's choice. Such is the specification of this F355, which is additionally complemented by the quintessential Ferrari shade of Rosso Corsa and an optional Challenge grille at the rear. The accompanying CARFAX Vehicle History Report places the Berlinetta in Florida from 2000-2012 before finding its way to Dallas, Texas in 2014. The car remained there until it was acquired by a Colorado-based collector in 2018, and subsequently relocated with them to Scottsdale, Arizona. The consigner then acquired the car relocating the car to east coast.
The Ferrari has received diligent maintenance and numerous tasteful upgrades, some of which include Tubi headers and exhaust, Hyperflow catalytic converters, and Hill Engineering wheel spacers, skid plates, and cam belt tensioner bearings. Service invoices on file document a major engine-out service undertaken by True Performance of Lake Forest, California in May 2020, during which the Berlinetta also received new engine and transmission mounts, serviced fuel injectors, rebuilt axles and CV boots, exhaust and engine compartment heatshielding, and upgraded H&R springs. In a further testament to the thorough preparedness of the Ferrari, receipts from March 2021 show the purchase and installation of a clutch kit and upgraded Hill Engineering clutch release bearing.
Overall, this is a superb and well-sorted example of one of the last truly analog Ferraris, offering tactile steering and the click-clack gated gear shifts unavailable in modern supercars. Recently treated to XPEL paint protection film on the front bumper, headlights, hood, front fenders, and side mirrors, this F355 Berlinetta is ready to be enjoyed on twisty mountain roads to the music of the V8 erupting from the Tubi exhaust.
