    Great Poll results

    This was a poll taken at Fchat before any vote manipulation might set in that agrees with what I have been saying all along. The 355 was/is the best 8 cylinder design that Ferrari ever made. Because it's low, wide, and sleek.

    Re: Great Poll results

    IMO the 355 and the 328 are the only good ME designs from Ferrari. Harmonious proportions with enough drama but without going to visual extremes. Dynamic but elegant, fresh and timeless.

    Re: Great Poll results

    If you look at a CS and a normal 360 side by side they are night and day. I loved the 360 Modena when it came out but the allure is fading. However, the CS, IMHO, the best looking Ferrari with the 355 in 2nd place. The 355 will always be a classic.


    Re: Great Poll results

    355 is my favorite ferrari of all time. Supercar being the more edgy F40. However, the 458 is a good attempt and will be remembered more so than the 360/430 series. They are like the 996

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :) 


    Re: Great Poll results

     355 is a gorgeous design as long as you don't need to switch on the headlights, that's a shame.


    Re: Great Poll results

    I agree. I've always been in love with both the 355's looks and the sound of the exhaust due to its smaller displacement compared to the 360/430.

    If they didn't require so much maintenance - (Timing belt replacement every 30K mi!), frequent niggles and naggles, I'd consider buying one at some point.

    What would you have to pay for a 355?

    For comparison, a nice CS here would run you about $150K where you could get a nice 355 for $85-95K. A 2000 - 2002 360 Modena is about the same as a 355 price wise. I think the 355 will hold its value as the 360 drops.

    Agree 100%, this beauty is a forever Classic. The 360 that came after is the most ugly Ferrari ever(348 is a tuff competition on this one) but F430 corrected that, still, it doesn´t have the classic look of a 355.

    I always loved the 355's design. But, am I in a minority? I also like the styling of the Mondial 8 Smiley

    The result might have been different if the 365GTB4 Daytona had been included  Smiley
