1996 Ferrari F355 Spider, guide price £85-95,000
A Ferrari Spider is a little predictable in any sports-cars-for-summer story, but when faced by a car like this…well, what’s wrong with a little predictability? Who wouldn’t want this car? It’s an F355 for starters, so a huge step up on the 348 and acclaimed, then as now, for its design, performance, handling and build quality. It’s in the rare Giallo Modena yellow finish with black hide interior with yellow stitching. It’s right-hand-drive and originally supplied by H R Owen. It’s covered under 24,000 miles and has 16 stamps in the book, the latest for a £2k cambelt service in March 2017. Oh, and it’s being sold by a well-known former racing driver! As Silverstone Auctions says: “A simply superb example of one of the most revered and sought-after Ferrari models of the modern era.” Count us in!
Silverstone Auctions’ May Sale is in The Wing building at Silverstone Circuit on Saturday May 13th, starting at 14.00hrs.
