Ferrari’s flagship mid-engine sports car of the late 1990s, the F355 offered Pininfarina-designed bodywork and Ferrari’s first 5-valve V8 engine which boasted the highest horsepower-to-displacement ratio of any production car at the time. This 1995 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta comes finished in Blu Chiaro over Cream Connolly leather upholstery and equips a gated 6-speed manuals transmission as well as 18” magnesium wheels, a Challenge-style rear grille, and a full Tubi Style exhaust system with headers. It was acquired by its owner in 2008 and underwent a recent engine-out service, clutch replacement, and new tires. Showing approximately 30k miles on the odometer, this F355 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of New Mexico while showing approximately 30k miles on the odometer.
The F355 was designed by Maurizio Corbi at Pininfarina and features distinctive flying buttress rear pillars, a vented engine cover, an integrated rear spoiler, side air intakes, pop-up headlamps, and quad exhaust outlets. This Berlinetta is finished in Blu Chiaro and includes a mesh Challenge-style rear grille and factory 18” 5-spoke magnesium wheels that were mounted with new Bridgestone Potenza tires in 2021. The seller indicates minor cosmetic damage was sustained to the front hood in 2022 and was subsequently refinished along with the front bumper cover and lower valence. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin features Cream Connolly leather upholstery complemented by blue carpeting and a black dashboard with a matching leather-wrapped steering wheel. The lower door panels have been custom painted in the exterior color and integrated with upgraded speakers along with a matching subwoofer enclosure between the seats. The sound system has also been paired with an amplifier and an aftermarket radio. Other accessories include drilled aluminum pedals and a matching passenger footrest, a gated shifter assembly with a polished gear lever, power windows and door locks, and automatic climate control. The seller notes the sticky original buttons have been replaced during their ownership.
The mid-mounted Tipo F129 B/C 3.5-liter DOHC V8 features a 5-valve cylinder head, titanium connecting rods, and dry-sump lubrication. It has been upgraded with a Tubi Style exhaust system including headers and Hyperflow catalytic converters. A factory-rated output of 375 HP and 275 lb.-ft of torque is sent to the rear wheels by way of a 6-speed manual gearbox and a limited-slip differential. An engine-out service was completed in 2022 including new timing belts, hoses, and fluids. The clutch was also replaced under current ownership along with the drivetrain mounts, upgraded OE radiator cooling fans, and CV boots.
This sale will include service records, owner’s manuals, a toolkit, a workshop manual, and a clean title.
The seller would like you to know: “Thank you for visiting my auction. I have owned this rare spec Blu Chiaro over Crema 6-speed Berlinetta for 15 years. All maintenance is up to date and the car runs and drives very nicely. I am only selling the car because I am done enjoying it and I need the space.”
