Description

Ferrari, the very sound of the name conjures up mental images of exciting and stylish sports cars being driven at great speed - add in the fabulous sound of the V8's exhaust and you are very close to motoring nirvana. With the arrival of the F355 - a descendant from the marvelous little Dino 246 - Ferrari was raising the stakes considerably in their quest for supremacy in their chosen market niche and sales of the F355 and its replacement, the 360 have risen dramatically. Not entirely coincidentally with this rise in popularity of the sports car side of the business has been Ferrari's dominance in the Formula One arena. With these mid-engine sports coupes Ferrari has also embraced new technology with electronic engine management, F1-style paddle shifts on the steering wheel, together with high-technology aluminum frame construction of the chassis all helping to give a storming performance that buyers of these sports car demand.
