1998 FERRARI 355 F1 GTS - 35,745 KM

KEY FACTS

  • A sought-after Italian sports car, finished in the marque’s iconic Rosso Corsa paintwork, and with very low mileage.
  • It is powered by the 3.5-litre V8, producing around 375bhp and 268lb-ft of torque, coupled with six-speed F1 automated manual transmission with paddle shift.
  • It benefits from a solid service history, and is presented in entirely unmodified condition.
  • Supplied new by Ferrari dealer Auto Koenig in Munich, it was first registered in their business name as a company car on 1 July 1998. The car was sold to a customer in Madrid in October 2001 and had one further owner in Spain before being sold and imported to the UK in February 2016, and re-registered here on 22 April 2016.

EQUIPMENT AND OPTIONS

  • Finished in Rosso Corsa over Nero upholstery, this 355 F1 has a colour-coded ‘targa’ style hardtop roof, which can be stored behind the seats while on the move.
  • It rides on the original magnesium alloy wheels.
  • The front wings have been embellished with aftermarket Scuderia Ferrari stickers.
  • Accompanying the vehicle are its original owner’s manuals and service book, along with a raft of maintenance invoices.

CONDITION

  • No known bodywork damage.
  • Its Rosso Corsa paintwork is in excellent condition, and commensurate with the low mileage, it presents with very little wear. A few stone chips can be seen on the grille, along with a few light scratches around the front bumper and pop-up headlights.
  • Its Nero leather upholstery is all in good shape, with some very light creasing, and minor surface wear to the driver’s seat outer bolsters.
  • The electric mirror switch is currently faulty, but the vendor notes that a replacement is likely to have been fitted before handover.
  • The most recent MOT test was on 20 May 2021 at 35,735 km, which was a first-time pass with no advisories or defects.

SERVICE HISTORY

  • Its most recent scheduled maintenance was in September 2020 at 35,599 km, where technicians at Verdi Ferrari in Hayes performed an interim oil service.
  • Prior to this, it received a cambelt replacement at Verdi Ferrari in January 2017 at 35,316 km.

SUMMARY

This Ferrari 355 F1 GTS is a very well-preserved modern classic, finished in a popular factory colour and remaining highly original thanks in part to its very low mileage.
