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 much improved vehicle both in terms of styling owing to the classically beautiful design by Pininfarina and in the blistering performance of its slightly enlarged 3.5-liter V8 engine. Equipped with five valves per cylinder, titanium alloy connecting rods, and a Bosch M5.2 control unit, the improved power plant produced a claimed 380-horsepower and 268 lb-feet 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, 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 report shows that the Berlinetta was first registered in Alabama before finding its way to Texas, where it would remain in the Dallas Fort-Worth area with its original owner for over two decades. The Ferrari eventually passed to its Miami-based second owner in 2017 at an indicated 22,696 miles, shortly followed by a third owner in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
The car currently displays 24,812 miles at the time of cataloging, and presents very well with the original paintwork showing only minor stone chips, the Speedline five-spoke alloy wheels in unscuffed condition, and the exterior panels and shut-lines all in good order. Inside, the Nero Connolly leather shows light creasing commensurate with normal use, while the steering wheel, dashboard, alloy shift knob, and interior switches look to be in excellent condition. In preparation for the sale, the Berlinetta received a major engine-out service in February 2022 at a cost of over $35,000, which included a full transaxle rebuild, resealing the engine as needed, replacing the crank seals, timing bearings, clutch assembly, water pump, engine and radiator hoses, fuel pressure regulator, and flushing the A/C system. A detailed description of the work performed and a list of parts is available in the accompanying service invoices. Overall, this is a superb and well-prepared example of one of the last truly analog Ferraris, offering tactical steering and clacking gated gear shifts seldom available in modern supercars.
