About This Car

“As art, the F355 can be appreciated in two ways: as a sculpture and as a dynamic driving experience. As sculpture, it may be the most beautiful modern classic Ferrari, and surely it’s one of the best-looking mid-engine road cars yet to wear the prancing horse. As a driving experience, from the song of its 3.5-liter DOHC five-valve per cylinder V-8, to its composed handling, it’s unlike any car in the world. And, best of all, it’s really fast even by todays standards and still capable of delivering more than enough shove to beat its modern contenders into submission. Captivating from every angle, the F355’s taut, athletic lines possess a timeless quality. Thirty years after it was first unveiled, it’s still regarded as car designer Pininfarina’s most successful work since the Dino”.

So what’s the big deal about the F355? It was Ferrari chairman Luca di Montezemolo’s redemption car following the company’s much-criticized 348, which was a big disappointment in terms of performance. With the F355, he re-engineered and revitalized Maranello’s fabled mid-engine V8. Starting with a chassis that was 30 percent stiffer than its predecessor, the F355 was treated to engineer Paolo Martinelli’s masterpiece – an all new 40-valve, 90-degree flat crank 3.5 liter V8. Benefiting from Ferrari’s Formula One racing experience, Martinelli’s engine featured individual throttle butterflies, five valves per cylinder and titanium connecting rods. The result was a then record output of 108.7 brake horsepower per liter (the mighty McLaren F1 could only manage 103 bhp per liter) with 380 bhp at 8,250 rpm, and 363 Newton meters of torque at 6,000 rpm.

By 1995, Nicola Larini helped develop a challenge series that followed the successful 348 Challenge Trophy. It was a one-model race that was held throughout Europe and became hotly contested since each car was identically prepared by Ferrari before being sold.
