DT: 1996 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta 6-Speed

We are pleased to present this 1996 Ferrari F355 Berlinetta. Finished in the traditional combination of Rosso Corsa over a tan leather interior, this 1996 example showcases a gated 6-speed manual transmission connecting the driver to a naturally aspirated V8 engine.  Having recently undergone nearly $15k worth of service including a timing belt replacement, this F355 is now being offered by its seller in Florida while showing approximately 23k miles on the odometer.

The iconic Rosso Corsa paint is said to be in excellent condition except for a small retouched area indicated near where the roof meets the rear fender (detailed images are provided in the photo gallery along with a clean CARFAX).  A 4-year ceramic coating treatment was recently applied over the entire car and the seller suspect the front hood to have been refinished at some point under previous ownership.  Some features include Pininfarina-designed bodywork, Scuderia fender shields, and factory 18” 5-spoke wheels.

The tan leather interior features a black dashboard, drilled aluminum pedals, carbon fiber trim on the center console, and a gated 6-speed manual shifter.  A recent invoice shows a $2,450 charge for the re-covering of the seats as well as a servicing and repair of the air conditioning system.  All gauges and accessories are said to be fully functional and the cabin is said to be in great shape.

This Berlinetta is equipped with a mid-mounted 3.5 L V8 DOHC engine featuring dry-sump lubrication and an output of 375 HP.  A highly sought after 6-speed dog-leg manual gearbox drives the rear wheels, allowing for a 0-60 time of approximately 4.3 seconds and a top speed of nearly 190 MPH.  Approximately $15k was recently invested in mechanical service including the replacement of the left inner CV boot and a major overhaul including a new timing belts, tensioners, gaskets, spark plugs, fluids, and filters.  A copy of the invoice is provided in the photo gallery and this Ferrari is said to be in exceptional driving condition.

This sale will include a set of 2 keys, a remote control, a leather bag with an original toolkit, a Ferrari car cover, service records, and a clean title.  If you’re in search of a nicely sorted gated-manual Ferrari, this stunning F355 Berlinetta is not to be overlooked.

    One of my favorite cars. Too bad such an unrealistic price was put on this. $138k turned down?

  • purespeed_99 (registered bidder) 2 days, 12 hoursago

    @SGUSA
    The link you are referring to is a GTS. This is a berlinetta.
    GTS red manuals are extremely difficult to come by. Specially a spec where it is red, a gts, and a manual.
    Even on local markets they are tough to come by.
    There have been quite a few red berlinetta on sale, atleast 5 I know in local markets in last 4 months.
    And the price point is lower than the highest bidder.

    Anyway good luck with the sale.

    @SGUSA That was the car I was referring to. Guess it went over 155K. But a quick glance at the 355 sale grid from BaT shows that that was a serious outlier for a non-challenge car over 10K miles.

    @MGDavis123 It is not overspray what you see in the filter, a detailing and ceramic work was done, then the requested photos were taken, I will attach photos with the clean boxes. Thank you.

  • SGUSA (seller) 4 days, 16 hoursago

    @MGDavis123 Maybe we can share this F355 too ( no challenge car )

    @MGDavis123 Heres your comp, a black 6 speed Berlinetta with 11.7K miles selling at just over 100K with bid premium.

  • MGDavis123 (registered bidder) 4 days, 16 hoursago

    @purespeed_99 Yep. 100K-110K car all day long. 175k is madness. He's looking at the $155K sale car from a few months ago and thinking it's a comp. No, that was a silly pair of bidders who blew through the top end of that cars value range trying to prove who had the bigger dick.

    That overspray and those beat up air boxes leave too many open questions for this to be a market-testing car.

  • purespeed_99 (registered bidder) 6 days, 22 hoursago

    @NIN10DO I would be surprised if this car sells at that price. I mean obviously if someone really really wants it then it goes but I doubt

  • NIN10DO 1 weekago

    @purespeed_99 Not only fair, but top of the market for something in this condition and specification. Basically setting a record for an example with this mileage even.

  • purespeed_99 (registered bidder) 1 weekago

    Did I miss something here, this would be a fair price for the car.

    @cmcphie Good afternoon, the windows are tinted but normal polarized (no color), surely the reflection of the light generates those optical illusions. Thanks

  • cmcphie (registered bidder) 1 week, 6 daysago

    Are the windows tinted in purple? The sides and front appear to be purple, however the back window appears to be tinted in red? Am I color blind? Please advise

  • SGUSA (seller) 1 week, 6 daysago

    @jbauto I want to clarify that the carbon in the center console is not a wrap, it is carbon fiber, aftermarket. No sticky on the air conditioning vents . The car is really in excellent condition.Thanks .

  • SGUSA (seller) 1 week, 6 daysago

    @Psuluke Hi, we are working on that , Thanks .

  • SGUSA (seller) 1 week, 6 daysago

    Center console looks nice with the fake carbon. Clean looking car. A driving video would help sell it. Any cluster lites on ? OBD, shocks or slow down lites? Photos on a Lift?
