Introduced in 1994 as the evolution of the Ferrari 348, the Ferrari F355 rapidly became one of the most admired vehicles in the marque's lineup. This mid-engine, rear-wheel-drive sports car embodies the essence of Ferrari's blend of performance, style, and driving pleasure. Produced until 1999, the F355 stands as a symbol of a certain era of the Ferrari legacy.
The F355 was designed by Pininfarina, continuing a long-standing partnership that has produced some of Ferrari's most iconic models. Compared to its predecessor, the F355 featured a softer, more streamlined design that was both modern and timeless. Its sculpted sides, rounded nose, and the iconic twin circular taillights give the F355 a distinctive and compelling presence. Available in Berlinetta (coupe), Spider (convertible), and GTS (targa-top) versions, the F355 offered a model for every preference.
The F355 was powered by a 3.5-liter V8 engine, delivering 375 horsepower at a high 8,250 rpm and 268 lb-ft of torque. The engine utilized a five-valve cylinder head, a first for a production Ferrari, resulting in improved intake capability and increased power. Read more
The F355 could sprint from 0-60 mph in just 4.6 seconds and had a top speed of 183 mph. The vehicle's performance was lauded not just for its raw speed, but for its handling dynamics, which many considered to be the best of any production car of that time.
The interior of the F355 is driver-focused, with controls neatly placed within easy reach. Its cockpit combined luxury and sportiness, with generous use of leather and a classic gated manual shifter for those who preferred the traditional driving experience. Despite its focus on performance, the F355 didn't entirely forgo comfort, featuring air conditioning, power windows, and an audio system.
