This beautiful, UK-spec, right-hand drive, manual Ferrari F355 Berlinetta was supplied new by Ferrari main agents, Evans Halshaw in Birmingham on 01.01.1996. The car had been specified with Rosso Corsa red paintwork and a Crema leather interior with Bordeaux carpets, a classic and desirable combination particularly well suited to the F355. Pleasingly, the car had also been specified with manual transmission making this F355 Berlinetta today the most collectable and desirable configuration.
Showing 38,149 miles at the time of cataloguing, it is clear to see that this impressive Ferrari has been very well looked after over the years. It's accompanied by a large history file with the important original leather-bound book-pack including the original service book stamped up-to-date. The last entry into the service book is dated 14.12.19 with a recorded mileage of 37,188 and the supporting invoice from a well-regarded Ferrari specialist on file shows a major service with cam-belts and further maintenance. In total there are 15 stamps in the service book for regular maintenance performed by either main agents or Ferrari specialists supported by paper invoices.
This F355 presents in fabulous condition with beautiful, even Rosso Corsa paintwork and the Crema leather interior also shows rather well with few signs of wear. The wheels are virtually unmarked and fitted with the correct Pirelli tyres, the engine compartment is exceptionally clean, and overall the car's condition is excellent.
Today the F355 is a fantastic 'modern classic' Ferrari with timeless styling including the beautifully sculpted vents in the doors, classic Ferrari round tail-lights and, of course, pop-up headlamps. It's hugely engaging to drive, particularly when fitted with the manual gearbox, and the V8 on full song sounds like an F1 car and is simply addictive. As such, fine examples of the F355 are highly desirable and should form part of any classic car collection. This example has clearly been loved and looked after over the years and we hope will continue to be in the hands of its lucky new owner.
