We are pleased to offer this 1998 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta finished in Nero over a tan leather interior. This 1998 example was purchased new from The Collection in Coral Gables, Florida before eventually being acquired by the third owner in 2004 who would drive the car less than 2k miles over the next 17 years. It was just recently acquired by the selling dealer who has performed a major engine-out service in preparation for sale including new timing belts, camshaft seals, fuel pumps, water pump seal, battery, tires, and much more. Highlighting a sought-after gated 6-speed manual transmission, this F355 is now being offered for auction by its seller out of North Carolina while showing just under 23k miles on the odometer.
The Pininfarina-designed bodywork on this Berlinetta is finished in Nero (black) and features distinctive pop-up headlights, side air intakes, and “Flying Buttress” rear pillars. As noted on CARFAX, the seller reports damage to have occurred to the right front end in 2005 and the entire vehicle is said to have been professionally refinished to ensure a clean and uniform appearance. Detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with the CARFAX report. The factory 18” 5-spoke Speedline wheels have been retained and were recently dressed in new Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires in preparation for sale.
Inside, this F355 features a tan Connolly leather interior with a black dashboard and a 6-speed gated shifter assembly nestled between the front seats. Some original interior components that are prone to peeling have been replaced with carbon fiber pieces by the previous owner. A new A/C heat and vent control station and actuator have been installed and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to be fully functional including the original Ferrari radio.
This Ferrari is equipped with a mid-mounted 3.5L V8 DOHC engine featuring dry-sump lubrication and an output of up to 375 HP. A sought-after 6-speed manual transmission with a limited-slip differential drives the rear wheels allowing for a 0-60 time of approximately 4.3 seconds and a top speed of nearly 190 MPH. A major engine-out service has been recently completed by the selling dealer including new timing belts and tensioner bearings, camshaft seals, fuel pumps, injector O-rings, intake gaskets, a water pump seal, battery, thermostat, left-bank exhaust temperature ECU, and all new fluids and filters. Additionally, the fuel injectors were cleaned, and the exhaust bypass valve was repaired. Service records are provided for reference in the photo gallery along with invoices and images from the recent service.
This sale will include a collection of service records, the original owner's manuals, a toolkit, and a clean title. One of the most iconic sports cars of its era offered in a timeless color combination and with a coveted 6-speed manual transmission, this F355 just might be the Ferrari you've been searching for.
