Powered by a 3.5 Litre V8 engine, it produced when new 279Kw and 363Nm of power and torque, delivered to the rear wheels via that gorgeous 6 speed gated gearbox. Performance claimed on release was 0-100kph in 4.7 secs and a top speed near 295kph. Performance and looks on the road are only surpassed by the sound of that Ferrari V8 engine in your ears.
Apart from the displacement increase from 3.4 Lt to 3.5 Lt, the major difference between the V8 engine in the 348 and F355 is the introduction of a 5-valve cylinder head. This new head design allowed for better intake permeability and resulted in an engine that was considerably more powerful, generating a maximum power output 279 kW at 8,250 rpm and 363 Nm of at 6,000 rpm.
The longitudinally mounted 90° V8 engine was stroked by 2 mm over the 348's engine (77 mm rather than 75 mm), resulting in the small increase in displacement. Engine internals are produced using lightweight materials, the connecting rods are forged in Ti6-Al-4V titanium alloy. The engine's compression ratio is 11:1 and employs the Bosch Motronic 2.7 engine control unit in the 1995 model year, later changed to the M5.2 in 1996 through end of production.
The Motronic system controls the electronic fuel injection and ignition systems, with a single spark plug per cylinder. Engine lubrication is via a dry sump oiling system. The engine was designed by Paolo Martinelli.
The F355 Spider debuted in 1995, its Pininfarina-penned lines honed by 1,800 hours in the wind tunnel, resulted in a blend of elegant style and aerodynamic performance. For the first time on a Ferrari automobile, the automated manual soft-top was powered electronically.
