1997 Ferrari F355 Spider
To say Ferrari owners are a discerning bunch is serious understatement. Generally speaking, they are very knowledgeable about the differences in, and performance specifications of, the various models of these fine Modena, Italy-crafted sporting automobiles. And they know exactly what they like. One more thing about Ferrari owners and their automobiles: They stand out from the crowd.
With all that in mind, this 1997 F355 3.5-liter V8 Spider is certain to check all the boxes for a good number of prospective Ferrari owners. “Truly beautiful” is nearly everyone's reaction to the wind-tunnel-perfected Pininfarina design. The soft-top model not only gives the occupants the added joys of open-air motoring, it also allows them to better appreciate the exhaust music emanating from the mid-ship-mounted V8, just inches behind them. Many believe F355s boast the best engine sound of any Ferrari V8, and that's saying something. Its 375-horsepower performance aside, the engine is a visual delight, a work of pure automotive art. And the perfectly matched 6-speed gated chrome shifter engages the driver in a way few other automobiles—and none with automatic transmissions—can match.
This car's stand-out Modena Yellow paint, black-fabric folding top and classic black-leather upholstery check even more boxes. What's more, at just over 36,000 miles—less than 2,000 miles per year—the car's prior owners have clearly treated it with the respect Ferraris deserve. The number of CarFax-documented inspections and regular service—frequently by authorized Ferrari dealers and specialty shops— further underscores the point. A close visual inspection of the condition of the paint, wheels and tires, underbody, engine compartment, fabric top, leather seats and interior surfaces adds lots more proof of a well-loved automobile. Even the factory-supplied tool kit—a thing of beauty in itself—and the leather carrying case are complete and included. With the factory-recommended 30,000-mile service complete, this F355 is ready to go.
