What do you think of this car?
What a great looking Challenge Car for the track and for the street. This late car being an Evoluzione has all the best upgrades. Its in pristine condition and commands a hefty price. These cars have been climbing astronomically in the past 2 years. There are so rare and so few.
Ferrari F355 Challenge cars were manufactureed to be race ready cars. It could be had as a $30,000 factory to dealer kit. The first cars built in 1995 came with cage mounts factory fitted and carpets removed. Each year Ferrari would deliver the cars with more and more race parts already factory fitted. In 1998, Ferarri delivered the final iteration of the car called the Evoluzione which were supplied as virtually complete race cars. The rear wing was the only item that needed to be fitted at delivery.
The Evoluzione was the last optimized version for the Ferrari 355 Challenge cars. These cars were made in 1998 and early 1999 only. Approximately 30-40 cars were produced this way. These cars also came with larger oil coolers and better roll cages.
