    1. Probably because of all the reliability issues he’s had with it, maybe them made him fall out of love with the F355

    2. @JT Suarezso Doug is selling it to some schlub on taking the financal fall? 😂 That’s ol’ scheming Doug…

    3. @Be Still, bub? those who are searching for a F355 probably know (or should know) the issues it commonly has, after all it’s an old school Ferrari, reliability is not the main interest of those who own them

    4. ​@Be Still, bub?you don’t just buy a classic Ferrari randomly, you have to want one and you know what the trouble spots are.

  1. Older cars really are amazing.

    Even unreliable,with imperfections and high mileage,all the things in an old car come with a story modern cars can’t just particularly tell.
    I think especially older Ferarri’s have a beauty to them that subtly screams speed,elitism,fun,resplendence.

    1. In the name of Allah, I invite you to worship Allah alone, so say, I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad the Messenger of Allah. This is how I entered Islam. Read about our Prophet Muhammad, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, whom Allah sent as a mercy to the worlds, to keep us away from Hell and admit us to Paradise by following him, Allah willing, as he is a prophet of the end of time. .. .. And the Seal of the Prophets and Messengers ….. ………….

    1. @Be Still, bub?That’s overhyped imo. I know somebody that’s had an F355 for 20 years and has only had to replace one shock absorber in that time. I don’t hear people that actually own them talking about unreliability often.

    2. ​@NeutralinoI think a lot of the unreliability complaints come from the number of manufacturer defects (factory exhaust headers WILL melt, soft valve guides on early cars, spider potentiometer for the top, F1 vacuum pumps can fail), and infrequently driven cars. My dad has owned a 98 355 F1 for 13 years, and yes, the maintenance is expensive. But in my experience it is not unreliable when driven regularly. I put about 10k miles on it in the first 5 years he owned it and the only actual problem we ever had was a coolant leak. It’s been driven hard the whole time, too. Always rev it out to 8500 after warming it up.

    3. If I could have any car that had ever been made and didn’t have to worry about reliability, it would be a 95 F355 spider with a capristo exhaust and bbs wheels.

  2. Seeing how timeless the Ferrari F355 still looks with its gorgeous lines and subdued styling makes me wish I could go back to the 90s.

    1. Ferraris used to be subtle. Old Ferraris are exotic enough but don’t scream “look at me! I have money!” like new ones. This is a driver’s car not an influencer’s car.

    2. elegant but looks like melted plastic a bit too much imo. like most expensive fast cars from this era. few brands had good looking cars back then. there are exceptions like bmw for example

  3. 100% agree giving the Berlinetta a 10 in styling and the Spider a 8. Well done. VERY few cars deserve a 10!

    1. In the name of Allah, I invite you to worship Allah alone, so say, I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad the Messenger of Allah. This is how I entered Islam.

And the Seal of the Prophets and Messengers …….. ……….

    2. @Landon Cool story bro. Allah don’t know how to drive a manual, so I don’t think he’s all that like you proclaim.

    3. Berlinetta 10 and Spider 8… ok, but that doesn’t sit right with me with the original NSX at only a 7. They’re all beautiful Pininfarina designs, but it kinda makes me feel like the pony on the badge is working a couple of those styling points.

  4. This has been my dream Ferrari ever since watching Xenia drive it in Goldeneye. The sound is mesmerizing!

    1. Yes that was outrun levels of iconic. Thanks for stirring the memory! Only disappointment was that it told me a 355 couldn’t outrun a tatty old DB6!

    2. In the name of Allah, I invite you to worship Allah alone, so say, I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad the Messenger of Allah. This is how I entered Islam.

    3. @Sam DowneyThat was the legendary DB5 rather than the magnificently disappointing DB6. But I agree, who ever matched the DB5 to a F355 was clearly not all there.

  5. The 355 is one of my all time favorite Ferraris. The lines are perfection and those pop up headlights are iconic

  6. doug, your emotional connection to this car really comes through to the viewer. don’t think i’ve ever seen you have such a heartfelt reaction to a car. it must be a very special driving experience.

    1. @Who Careshe couldn’t make it seem like a straight sales pitch for Kenneran Kennington so he had to list at least one drawback. But def trying to squeeze out every last dollar for Kannon from Cars and Bids

    1. And when you get pulled over you must tell the cop you’re going to Blockbuster to return Pulp Fiction before you get hit with a late fee.

    1. Sorry man I just really have a hard time listening to him tried watching the video and I can’t make it through the first two minutes

  7. My dream car. I had the chance to ride on a giallo modena cabrio one this summer and it was a great experience. Even though it’s terrible to mantain, as Doug said in another video, it is that what kept the car ‘affordable’, otherwise it would be worth near to a million dollars.

  8. I would def want the GTS version. Love the old 328 GTS. Seems weird to have a power soft top on such a small car.

  9. Owning a car like this is a hobby. All hobbies cost money. And I think the cost of this hobby is well worth it!

  10. I love this car ever since it was featured in the rock car chase in San Francisco. But there’s one problem taking that F355 is complicated for service centre labourers, that’s why Doug mentioned it’s ridiculously expensive to maintain.

    1. You can always cut a hole in the firewall to change the timing assembly 😅. Pretty much Ferrari’s solution with the 360.

  11. I’ve recently been wondering if in reality the 348 would be the one to have for the steering and chassis feedback compared to the 355, but this is a good reminder of just how gorgeous the 355 is. It must be possible to replicate the 348’s steering in this because the size and weight are similar/identical and front end (at least) geometry probably no different. Also, maybe…some lovely passive suspension setup but that would depend on how the 355 feels, it might already be great. I will never know! But thanks Doug, this love letter of a video has put the 355 back in strong contention for my fantasy garage!

    1. 348’s all come manual, and have the sweet side strakes. Still have the engine out drawback though.

  12. I am impressed (more so proud than in a surprised sense) with how thorough and fairly Doug reviewed one of his best friend’s cars. Part of me was hoping Doug would pull the rug from us and say he is buying it. Maybe it can be a company vehicle and keep it in the family lol

    1. In the name of Allah, I invite you to worship Allah alone, so say, I bear witness that there is no god but Allah, and I bear witness that Muhammad the Messenger of Allah.

  13. I felt my eyes almost starting to water with your poetic discourse. The 355 has always been one of my favorite cars, fell in love with it since I was a child, so this video really touched a fiber in me.
    Truly one of the greatest cars of all time.

  14. In the late 90’s I was wearing hearing protection while mowing the lawn of a commercial storage facility. I heard the roaring sound of what I thought was a jet aircraft and I looked up from the lawn only to see a red Ferrari 355 eastbound on the nearby 4 lane divided highway. The 355 was in the left lane passing other cars as if they were standing still. I’m guessing it was going at least 120mph in what was at that time a 60mph zone.

  15. the presentation and narration in Dougs style is what makes this channel entertaining .I don’t think any other host will live up to it
