More About this Item


Description

As one of only 1'051 F355 Spider built with an automatic gearbox and paddle shifters on the steering wheel (F1), this convertible built in 1999 was delivered by the Ferrari agency in Bad Homburg (Germany) on May 9th 2000. The Ferrari is equipped with a black leather interior, air conditioning and an electric soft top. The available documents show that the Ferrari was imported into Switzerland in March 2002 with just under 18'000 kilometres at that time and was registered here for the first time on April 30th of that year. In June 2010, at just under 23'000 kilometres, the 355 was taken over by the (presumably) third and last owner. In July 2016, at 46'668 kilometres, the timing belt, tension rollers and the catalytic converter monitoring control unit were replaced. With only 54'400 kilometres, complete on-board folder and complete tool kit, the car is in good to very good, well-maintained original condition. The last Swiss MOT took place in August 2016.
Deutsch: Als einer von nur 1‘051 gebauten F355 Spider mit automatisiertem Schaltgetriebe und Schaltwippen am Lenkrad (F1), wurde dieses Cabrio mit Baujahr 1999 am 9. Mai 2000 durch die Ferrari Vertretung in Bad Homburg (Deutschland) ausgeliefert. Ausgestattet ist der Ferrari unter anderem mit einem schwarzen Lederinterieur, Klimaanlage und elektrischem Verdeck. Aus den vorhandenen Unterlagen ist ersichtlich, dass der Ferrari im März 2002 mit damals knapp 18‘000 Kilometern in die Schweiz importiert und am 30. April des Jahres erstmals hier zugelassen wurde. Im Juni 2010, mit knapp 23‘000 Kilometern wurde der 355er vom (vermutlich) dritten und letzten Halter übernommen. Im Juli 2016, bei 46‘668 Kilometern wurden Zahnriemen, Spannrollen und das Steuergerät der Katalysatorüberwachung ersetzt. Mit erst 54‘400 Kilometern, kompletter Bordmappe und komplettem Werkzeugsatz, befindet sich der Wagen in gutem bis sehr gutem, sehr gepflegtem Originalzustand. Die letzte MFK erfolgte im August 2016.
Français: Ce cabriolet, dont l'année de construction est 1999, est l'un des 1'051 exemplaires construits de la F355 Spider équipée d'une transmission manuelle automatisée et de palettes au volant (F1). Elle a été livrée le 9 mai 2000 par l'agence Ferrari de Bad Homburg (Allemagne). La Ferrari est équipée, entre autres, d'un intérieur en cuir noir, de la climatisation et d'une capote électrique. Les documents disponibles montrent que la Ferrari a été importée en Suisse en mars 2002 avec un peu moins de 18'000 kilomètres à l'époque, et a été immatriculée ici pour la première fois le 30 avril de la même année. En juin 2010, à un peu moins de 23'000 kilomètres, le 355 a été repris par le (vraisemblablement) troisième et dernier propriétaire. En juillet 2016, à 46'668 kilomètres, la courroie de distribution, les poulies du tendeur et l'unité de contrôle de surveillance du pot catalytique ont été remplacées. Avec seulement 54'400 kilomètres, un dossier de bord complet et une trousse à outils complète, la voiture est en bon à très bon état d'origine, très bien entretenue. La dernière expertise a eu lieu en août 2016.
