Used Ferrari F355

Background

The first buyers of the Ferrari F355 got their hands on it in the autumn of 1994 and it was considered to be a significant improvement over the outgoing 348.

In the six years that it was on sale it managed to garner a massive following and is still revered to this day, although many would have preferred it if Ferrari had kept the range alive for a little longer.

A year after its launch the convertible Ferrari F355 Spider hit the market, while 1997 saw the arrival of the F355 F1, which integrated paddle shift gears to give drivers that race car vibe.

The F355 eventually went the way of the dodo in the year 2000 when Ferrari put the Modena in its place, although by this point its position as an icon was assured.

Bang for your buck

What made the used Ferrari F355 a hit was a blend of its uncluttered and partially angular styling with the impressive technical prowess which it possessed under the bonnet.

Many were surprised to see Ferrari paying so much attention to the quality of the interior, because it had got into a habit of raiding parts bins at Fiat to outfit its vehicles of the previous decade. Instead the F355 is lovingly crafted inside and out, giving that legitimate feeling of luxury and power wherever you look.

The Ferrari F355's V8 engine is a bit special, although you do need to give it a bit of a gunning if you want to hear it really come to life, because at low speeds it lacks the pop and fizz you might expect from something so powerful.

While the Spider might be the most immediately alluring of the group, it is generally passed over in favour of the Berlinetta, if only because the electric roof system means that the convertible actually has to juggle the passengers about in their seats before it can be secured in place.

What you'll pay

You will pay between £35,000 and £40,000 for an early model F355 Berlinetta, while the Tagra-roof GTS is also going to fall into roughly the same price bracket.

More recent cars from the late 1990s will fetch closer to £50,000 and you will pay around 15% less if you opt for a left hand drive import, which is worth bearing in mind.

The fact that the Ferrari F355 falls into insurance group 20 is hardly a surprise, but this type of Italian muscle is worth paying for if you can afford it.

What to check

During the 1990s Ferrari attempted to tackle the problem of reliability in its new models and the F355 has a good reputation in this respect.

The designers wanted to make sure that their models were able to offer impressive performance and exotic looks, but also be sturdy and practical enough to handle daily use, which is exactly what German rivals were offering at the same time.

If you choose a GTS always check the roof, because warping over time can mean that the fit is not quite up to scratch.

The F1 edition is prone to clutch wear and tear, particularly if driven on urban roads in full auto mode, so make sure that this is intact before buying.

Always give the service history plenty of scrutiny, because this is still a relatively delicate car and needs full attention after 6250 miles. A complicated cam belt replacement must also have been carried out every 3 years irrespective of usage levels, which is why many people sell just before this procedure approaches.

Parts

Brake pads for the front wheels of an F355 will cost you £100 or so, with a fresh clutch setting you back £340.

This may seem like a relatively high asking price, but compared to other supercars of the era it is actually quite reasonable.

How it drives

You'll hit 60mph in just 4.6 seconds when driving the Ferrari F355 as hard as possible, while the top speed of 183mph is not to be sniffed at.

The engine noise at high revs is simply glorious, if somewhat deafening. So if you want to recreate elements of the F1 car experience but don't have a few hundred million to spend, the F355 could actually be quite good value.
