1994 Ferrari F355 GTS

In 1995, Ferrari introduced the GTS model to the F355 family. The GTS model was based on the F355 Berlinetta but offered a removable “targa-style” roof.

The F355’s 40-valve V-8 with 375 horsepower and 268 pound-feet of torque carried over intact. Other specifications were identical to the Berlinetta. 2,577 GTS models were produced, with 2,048 6-speed manuals and another 529 with the F1 transmission. The V8 revs to satisfying 8,250rpm and sounds guttural, rough and very Ferrari-like. 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds and a top speed of 183mph were both very fast for the day. For most, the scream of that wild V8, the click-clack of the truly satisfying metal gate manual gearbox and the looks are what makes this Ferrari special.

And boy does the Ferrari F355 GTS look nice. It is a pretty Ferrari and that’s not something that could be said of Ferrari’s during that era. It shared almost every dimension with the 348, but the body was all-new and its sculpting had involved a lots of wind-tunnel testing.
