As afore mentioned, Ferrari is known for producing very beautiful looking cars and the 355 is no exception. The curvy bodylines give it that very distinguished 50’s racer look and to compliment the look, underneath lies a 4.1 Litre V12 engine – sounds phenomenal!

This exact car was involved in a few races in it’s lifetime with the Sebring 12 hours and the Mille Miglia where driver Wolfgang Von Trips achieved 2nd Place. After this the engine was given a re-bore from 3.8L to 4.1L and the car began racing once more.
