Lot #710 - Ferrari's famous technological trickle-down from its all-conquering Formula 1 program to its road cars was never more evident than in 1998 when they introduced their automated paddle shift manual transmission. Appropriately dubbed F1, it brought lightning quick shifts executed in milliseconds and dawned a new era in the world of sports and Supercars. With a 375hp 40v V8 that revs to 8,500rpm, race-bred gear change including perfectly rev-matched down shifts, a nimble extruded aluminum chassis, real world performance that still keeps pace even with modern Supercars, and one of Pininfarina's all-time classic designs, F355 owners can rightly channel their inner Michael Schumacher. The Spider seen here is finished from the factory in extremely rare NART Blue metallic paint with tan leather interior and Navy Blue softtop. It has been very well cared for. Included are the original handbooks in their leather folio, maintenance records including an annual service that was just completed September, 2013, the leather boot cover and an extra set of keys.
