The design of the GTS shows Ferrari's culture and experience, enriched by active experimentation and research. The result is a car in which engineering and styling meet to create unprecedented overall performance. The F 355 is an innovative car that provides the full excitement of driving a Ferrari, coupled with superb performance from the 109 bhp/litre and close-ratio gearbox.

Convertibles have always filled a special, important place in the hearts of sports car enthusiasts.
