In 1995, Ferrari introduced a race-ready F355 Challenge model for use specifically in the Ferrari Challenge.The Ferrari F355 Challenge model was created by starting with a standard Ferrari F355 Berlinetta model and modifying it with a factory-to-dealer supplied kit. The initial 1995 cars came with cage mounts factory fitted and carpets removed, each year the cars arrived with more and more race parts factory fitted, culminating in 1998 with full-evolution cars which were supplied as virtually complete race cars though parts such as the rear wing still needed to be fitted.
The kit initially was more substantial than the 348 and the engine, gearbox and shock-absorbers were sealed with special tags to prevent unauthorised modifications. The kit included the following components/modifications:
• Racing seats
• Safety harnesses
• Fire extinguisher
• Engine cutoff switch
• Manual radiator fan control, upgraded fans
• Competition steering wheel
• Lightweight exhaust
• Rear wing
• Competition clutch
• Upgraded 14″ Brembo brakes (F40 type)
• 18″ Speedline magnesium wheels
• Pirelli racing slicks
• Solid suspension bushings and competition springs
• Front and Rear brake cooling ducts
• Challenge black rear grille (halfway through the 1995 season to get extra air through the engine-bay)
• Lightened front bumper
• Front and rear tow hooks
The F355 Challenge shares the same engine tuning and physical dimension specifications as the original. Horsepower is up slightly owing to the free-flowing non-street-legal racing exhaust kit. 108 were produced, all with the 6-speed transmission (except for 1 that was equipped with a F1 gear box for a handicapped client).There were 18 RHD cars imported by Ferrari UK and modified by MHT. Some of these rare cars have now been converted to be street legal. Each F355 Challenge has an emblem on the rear that specifically denotes ‘F355 Challenge’.
