1998 Ferrari F355F1 Challenge
Chassis no. ZFFXR41A9W0111840
In 1995 Ferrari introduced a race ready F355 Challenge model for use specifically in the Ferrari Challenge Series. The Ferrari F355 Challenge shares the exact same performance and dimension specifications as the original; Ferrari simply added racing seats, a downforce wing, and a roll cage. Only 109 were produced. Each F355 Challenge has an emblem on the rear which specifically denotes 'F355 Challenge.

The car offered is ready to race. This is a previously tracked car that has service records and has been well taken care of. Owned by the legendary artist, Dale Chihuly, with title and documentation in his name to accompany the car.
