The Ferrari 355 is held in high regard among Ferrari enthusiasts. Styling wise it’s one of Pininfarina’s best works and performance wise it was leaps and bounds ahead of the 348 that preceded it.
The Smoking Tire’s Matt Farah recently had a go in a viewer’s Ferrari 355 GTS, which comes with removable targa roof. It’s the same model of Ferrari Top Gear’s Jeremy Clarkson drove and then promptly decided decided his life wouldn’t be complete without having.
During his drive, Farah learns why old Clarkson fell in love with this Fezza. The five-valve 3.5-liter V8 is one of the best sounding engines ever fitted to a road car, the power steering is direct, the brakes are grabby and it has a gated manual transmission. In short, it’s pne of Farah’s favorite cars he’s ever driven.
Check out his test drive of the 355 in the video above.
