The F355 Challenge flanked the 348 Challenge in the Ferrari Challenge for the 1995 season. Once again, the engine was strictly a production one and the very limited modifications were confined to the exhaust system, the clutch, the slick tyres and obligatory racing safety equipment (roll cage, six-point safety harness, fire extinguisher, front two hook and electric circuit breaker). The F355 Challenge continued competing until 2000 when it was joined by the 360 Challenge which replaced it the following year.
Our Ferrari F355 Challenge raced in the official West European Challenge for the famous Garage Francorchamps. Thanks to good preservation the car remains in very original condition retaining all features specific to the Challenge configuration. The car was very well maintained and serviced during the years and only drove occasionally during trackdays. The car is delivered with 2 extra sets of wheels and is ready to drive. Please inquire for more information.

THE FERRARI 348
Ferrari’s Type 348 was introduced in late 1989 as the successor to the 328, and as with the latter, was offered in both closed and open form. Both the TB coupe, or Transversale Berlinetta, and its Targa-roofed sibling TS Spider were constructed on a steel monocoque, making it the first Ferrari to comply with new international crash testing standards.
In 1993, the Dutch Ferrari Club created the “348 Challenge” for owners of this model, and other Ferrari Clubs quickly followed suit. Owners could purchase special safety equipment packages and go racing against other mechanically-identical, street-legal cars. 59 cars participated in the final 1993 contest at Mugello, Italy, and the single-model race idea expanded to Western Europe, Japan, and the United States the following year. The series continued until the model was replaced by the 355.
THE MOTORCAR OFFERED
This Ferrari 348 TS Challenge was fitted with a “Challenge Kit” in 1993 and proved very competitive in the hands of its original owner, Kurt Carlson of Rockport, Illinois, from 1994 through 1996. Carlson drove this car at many Challenge series events, including the 1994 World Final at Mugello. He twice scored podium finishes at the former Moroso Motorsports Park in Florida. Registered to the Meredith Alice Carlson Trust, it was awarded a Platinum Concours trophy at Cavallino. This car was acquired in 2012 by the Evergreen Historic Automobile Collection in Lebanon, Missouri, and placed on static display. It was last fully serviced in 2010, but re-commissioned with new fluids in November 2016 and has been driven fewer than 10 miles since. Its odometer indicates a total of 27,155 mile, and is described as in very good original condition with all systems working properly.
Liveried in Ferrari Red over tan leather, it is supplied with its original seats, factory air conditioning, and seat belts, which were put back in the car for street use. It includes its tool roll, original racing seats, competition belts and roll cage. Only a few hundred 348s ever saw a race track; this example would be welcomed at any Ferrari club track event or Concours.
