Spider

Ferrari f355 Spider

Designed by Pininfarina

The first Ferrari was an open bodied car. Convertible cars have always represented something special and irremissible for Enzo Ferrari and his firm. Since then we have built many spiders, each one with its own fascinating history. All Ferrari spiders combine the sports characteristics of the mechanics and the driving pleasure.

The Red F355 Spider

The F 355 Spider increases this attitude by putting together the high performances of Berlinetta and GTS and the easiness of transformation, thanks to the opening and closing semiautomatic electronic system of the soft top. The features that determine the success of the F 355 are the same for the Spider : 375 HP, 5 valves per cylinder, 4.7" 0/100 km/h, an excellent engine flexibility (torque 268 lb.ft), a 6-speed transmission gearbox, the hydraulic power steering, the electronic control of suspensions. These characteristics make this car really easy to drive in any condition.

Bodywork

The Interior

 
Two-seater Spider in aluminium and steel. The exterior styling has been guided by strict aerodynamic requirements including the underside to obtain the perfect balance of vertical forces (Cz).


The Interior

 

The cockpit design emphasizes driving pleasure and safety. The F 355 Spider has comfortable, body-hugging seats upholstered in Connolly leather with electrically assisted movements. The car is equipped with double air-bag.

Wow!
