Ferrari F355 Spider
It would be easy to become overwhelmed with the grace and power of the 550 Maranello or the 456GT and even convince yourself that the mid-engien road car is perhaps an idea whose time has come and gone. But then you slip into the F355, head into the mountains and remember: The 550 and 456GT are GT cars. And a sports cars can be a very good thing. Especially with the top down on a crisp autumn day in Italy. The F355 is a car with wonderful balance and brakes and free-revving engine that produces great thrusting pulses of acceleration on a mountain road.
UPDATES: The time has come for this Ferrari. It will be replaced by a new model called 360 Modena, with a 400 bhp engine (always a V-8), and a estimated top speed of 186 mph. I'll have it here as soon as possible.
UPDATES: For those who prefer the 355, Ferrari will continue production of the 355 Spider, I guess untill there is a 360 convertible.
