The Ferrari F355 carved out a little place in motoring history for itself. Widely renowned as the best volume model to roll out of the Maranello factory since the 308GTB, the F355 was a massive advance over its predecessor, the unloved 348. To this day, many mourn the passing of the F355 range, and there is no shortage of buyers who prefer its clean, understated looks to those of its successor, the 360 Modena. A used F355 is a far more reasonable proposition than many expect, but does the sticker price open up a bottomless money pit for those tempted by the allure of the Prancing Horse badge? Find out here.
Many lament the fact that the F355 was replaced so early by the more dramatic, if less elegant, 360 Modena. There's a simple purity to the F355 that seems to have disappeared from Ferrari's latest offerings that will preserve the car's classic status. To lay one down like a fine wine is to waste one though. This is one Ferrari that appreciates being taken by the scruff of the neck and given a sound thrashing. As a used purchase there are lot of things to look out for, but a properly maintained F355 will provide satisfaction like nothing else. Look for a scrupulously cared for, low mileage car in one of the classic colours and you won't lose your shirt. But even if you lose shirt, trousers, shoes and everything else, you'll consider it a fair bargain for the thrill of dancing at that redline, all 380 horsepower at your disposal. With the F355 it's not a case of whether you can afford to buy one, more a question of can you afford not to?
