We are pleased to offer 1997 USA model Ferrari F355 6-speed Spider s/n 108800, delivered new to Ferrari of Washington in Sterling, VA, the selling dealer, in July of 1997. This 355 Spider was sold to its first owner on 15 July, 1997 and first registered on 19 August, 1997. From new in gorgeous Giallo Modena FER 102 DS (Fly yellow) over an excellent Nero (Black) leather interior with an excellent black canvas top and the black leather snap-on cover for the top when down. Comes with detailed service records showing $37,940.22 in maintenance work done over the last three years and now with only 18,996 well documented miles. Even better, the power top works smoothly and as it should! Clean Carfax, e-mail or call us for a copy of the Carfax.

The body and body fit are “as-new” and the paint is in excellent condition over what appears to be an accident-free and dent-free body. The black leather, black dash and black canvas top are all in “near new” condition. The engine compartment is spotless. Comes with the embossed leather book pouch with the owner’s handbook; the Consumer Information booklet; the warranty book listing the selling dealer’s information and the first owner; the parts content paper; the alarm system booklet, the Connolly Leather fold-out and the dealers and service center booklet. Also comes with the Factory Blaupunkt Bremen SQR stereo system with it’s booklet and original radio remote. Also comes with a pre-wired battery tender and the Factory “spare-in-a-can.” 355 Spider s/n 108800 is both cosmetically and mechanically a superb example, offering the chance to buy a low-mileage, fully serviced 1997 F355 Spider. A pride-of-ownership “first Ferrari” for the buyer looking for a reasonably-priced, three pedal, 6-speed, user-friendly, well-documented, high-revving topless Ferrari.

In mid-2021 355 Spider s/n 108800 was treated to an engine-out service by Blue Chip Services, 3935 South Kalamath, Englewood, CO, 80110. The work included remove and re-install the engine and transaxle; adjust the valves, degree the cams, new cam seals, new cam drive  bearings, a powder coat of the cam covers, new spark plugs and new ignition wiring, new cam and accessory belts, new belt tensioners, a complete new clutch and pressure plate assembly, a rebuild of the steering rack, new tie rod ends, a flush and change of the engine and transaxle oil, coolant and brake fluids, the installation of new hood and engine lid struts and a sublet repaint of the front bumper. The total invoice was $33,929.01 at 16,339 miles. We have copies of all invoices on file, e-mail us for copies.

Only a few months later, in  Sept. of 2021 355 Spider s/n 1088800 was further serviced by Blue Chip Services, Englewood, CO. The work included a sublet powder coat of the engine heat shields plus a clear bra to the front bumper, the hood and the headlamps. The total invoice was $3,117.25. Two months later, in Nov., of 2021, 355 Spider s/n 108800 was again serviced by Blue Chip Services, Englewood, CO. The temp thermostat switch was replaced. The total invoice was $893.96 at 17,515 miles. Most recently, two months ago a new battery was installed at $326.63. We have copies of all invoices on file, e-mail us for copies.

Introduced as a Berlinetta in 1994 and a Spider in 1995, the F355’s Pininfarina-penned lines were honed by 1,800 hours in the wind tunnel. As the first quad-cam, five-valve Ferrari, the F355 broke with Ferrari’s traditional numbering system (308 = 3.0 liters + 8 cyl) but instead stood for 3.5 liters and 5 valves. Power jumped to 375 horsepower at an impressive 8,500 rpm, thanks to sophisticated mechanicals such as titanium connecting rods, an 11:1 compression ratio, a Bosch Motronic M5.2 engine management system and a dry-sump oiling system. Power is put to the ground through a good set of 235 X 40 ZR X 18 front and 275 X 35 ZR X 18 rear MIchelin Pilot Supersport tires mounted on scuff and damage free 18″ wheels. The F355 is seriously fast, sprinting from 0-60 mph in 4.7 seconds and hitting a top speed of 185 mph! Power steering makes low-speed driving effortless, and the power top makes top-down motoring easy.

F355 Spider s/n 108800 starts instantly, pulls impressively and stops in a confidence-inspiring way. The suspension is tight and compliant as one would expect of a well-documented, low mileage, fully-serviced Ferrari. The engine and engine bay  have been cleaned and detailed, the floor pan and undercarriage are clean and dry with no significant road rash on the aerodynamic floor pan or suspension components. There is no evidence of structural damage or repair. The light alloy engine and suspension castings show very well. Does not have the usual “sticky switch” problems. The extensive service work including a recent engine-out service and clear bra and the overall condition shows that 355 s/n 108800 has been well maintained and cared for by her previous owners. Has only 2,657 miles since the $33,929.01 engine-out service! Unlike many 355 spiders, the power top works smoothly and as it should! As the first of the modern-era Montezemolo inspired high revving V8 Ferraris, F355 Spider s/n 108800 is a very user-friendly, low-mileage (18,996 miles), pride of ownership, 6-speed, topless Ferrari and is priced to sell at $139,950 or best offer.
