We are excited to offer this exceptionally well-maintained Ferrari for auction with Sotheby's Motorsport. Recent major service, stunning factory colors, and overall excellent condition make this low mileage F355 F1 Spider a must have. 

Spiritual successor to the 348, Ferrari's F355 offered from model years 1995-1999 revived the manufacturer's appeal en masse. Throughout production of Berlinetta, Spider, and GTS body styles, either a gated six-speed manual transmission or Ferrari's first deployment of the now-staple F1 paddle-shifted automated manual could be specified. Exiting the 1980s, choice in both exterior and interior configured colors extended well beyond Rosso Corsa over Nero. Soft exterior shades and natural leather interiors again entered the mainstream alongside optional performance equipment in spades. In any assembly, the model's complex exhaust note and Pininfarina form served to elevate the F355 to an ethereal realm.

This 1999 Ferrari F355 F1 Spider is finished in Blu Pozzi over beige leather with blue convertible top. Well cared for to a T, this example shows minimal wear throughout and retains original paint, leather-bound factory accessories, and top boot. Inside, blue and beige surroundings coordinate for an airy cabin further equipped with optional 6 CD changer. It's 3.5L V8 produces 375 horsepower and 268 pound feet of torque, transferred to the road by a six-speed F1 automated transmission and limited slip differential. Staggered width 18-inch magnesium wheels with Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires replaced in 2020 sit over black Ferrari brake calipers. Documented engine-out service and replacement of belts, brake system, window motors, battery, and airbags in 2021 is reported by the selling dealer. Surety of thorough recent service present this Ferrari's next owner with a top-down experience of the time-capsule variety.

Registered in the Sunshine State from new, both a clean Florida Title in the selling dealer's name and clean two-owner Carfax report accompany the sale.
