Ferrari - 355
The Ferrari F355 was from May 1994 to 1999 as an evolution of the Ferrari 348 and was replaced by the Ferrari 360. It is a mid-engined, rear wheel drive V8-powered 2-seat coupe. One major difference between the V8 in the 348 and that in the F355, apart from the displacement increase from 3.4 to 3.5 L, is that the F355 features a 5-valve per cylinder head and that it is considerably more powerful. Like its predecessors and descendants, the F355 is a fairly common car (for a Ferrari) with 11,273 units produced.

At launch, two models were available: the coupe Berlinetta, and the targa topped GTS. The Spider (convertible) version was introduced in 1995. In 1998 the Formula One style paddle gear shift semi-automatic transmission was introduced with the Ferrari 355 F1 (note the dropping of the F before the 355) adding £6,000 to the dealer asking price.

 

The naming nomenclature does not follow the formula from the previous decades, ie. engine capacity + cylinder number (eg. 246 = 2.4 litres + 6 cyl, 308 = 3.0 litres + 8 cyl, and same for the 328, 348, 512 etc). This time, Ferrai used engine capacity plus number of valves per cylinder, as they were proud to boast about this technological advancement, ie 355 = 3.5 litres engine capacity and 5 valves per cylinder.  

 

To signify the end of the 355 model Ferrari built 100 units with the designation 'Serie Fiorano', the car was introduced in Geneva Salon 1999 together with the new 360 Modena. These variants are slightly lower than stock with a special handling package and remapped fuel chip. Serie Fiorano cars are Spiders and can easily be identified by the numbered plaque on the dashboard.
