The Ferrari Challenge series is a single-marque racing championship, that was created so that Ferrari owners could become involved in motor racing. It started in 1993 with the 348 Challenge and then progressed to the F355 Challenge in 1995. Each one of these started out as a standard Berlinetta (coupe), which was then modified with a factory supplied kit of performance accessories (at an additional cost to the customer of some $30,000!!). However, the next car in the Challenge series, the 360 Challenge (and also every subsequent Challenge car) was only available with the F1 paddle shift transmission, a move bemoaned by many racing purists and one that has therefore only heightened the appeal and demand for the F355 version. Thrilling to drive on the track and easily maintained, with no complicated computer controls or electronic shifting, these superb, factory built racecars are destined to be one of the most sought after racing machines from Maranello.

This particular 355 was campaigned extensively (and very successfully) in the North American Challenge Series, from 1997 to 2000. With many first places across the country, throughout its career, it was actually 1st overall, in the 2000 season!

What makes this car even more special however, is the fact that it is titled for road use. A total of just 108 F355 Challenge cars were built (18 of which were right hand drive), making them extremely rare, but finding a road legal example, with a US title, is far rarer still (possibly, one of only two such cars in the US and one of only ten worldwide).

This therefore, represents an unparalleled opportunity to purchase not only one of the rarest examples of the last manual transmission, Ferrari Challenge cars, but also a championship-winning one with a superb racing history!
