Fabulous Ferrari: Eyrewell Forest Motor Company

Regarded as one of Maranello’s greatest hits, the Ferrari F355 is already a modern classic.

If you’ve always wanted a classic car or a Ferrari, then check out this ‘New Zealand new’ 1999 355 F1 Spider, currently for sale by Andrew Farrow of Eyrewell Forest Motor Company.

Its 3.5L naturally aspirated 380hp V8, with five valves per cylinder, allows you to rev out to 8500rpm.

Throw in a Ferrari Challenge exhaust system identical to those used on the 355 Challenge race cars, and you’ll find the sound next level.
Flicking up and down via the F1 shift transmission is effortless, and each downshift is accompanied by a baritone blip from that race car exhaust.

While not hyper-car-quick compared with the current Ferrari stable, the 355 Spider offers a perfect blend of analogue sports car fun, more than enough go, and well-balanced handling prowess.

Steering is light but not devoid of feel. Each twitch left or right is met with instant feedback and can set the Ferrari up to tackle every tight or sweeping bend with pin-sharp accuracy.

You really can keep the power on while staying planted and true in the corners.

Driving any Ferrari is magical, and this 355 Spider is no exception.
