We are extremley proud to be able to offer For Sale this beautiful example of a Berlinetta.
Registered on 15th June 1995, this 355 has had just 2 former private owners/keepers & has had no expense spared in its maintenance & appearance.
First ordered by Hong Kong businessman Charles Ching for use at his London address, the car was supplied by the Hong Kong dealer Italian Motors on 15th June 1995, but sent from the factory straight to London where it was registered & PDI'd by H R Owen Lonon just a few days later on 26th June 1995. Believed to be for tax implications at the time, the car was purchased through Hong Kong but never delivered there. In essence a UK delivered car, showing KM's. The car was later passed to Mr Ching's Daughter 2001 who again kept the car in London before selling to Joe Macari in 2015 who had maintained the car. At this time, due to the rising values of 90's Ferrari's it was decided that the car was to be totally restored before sale to the current owning family.
Finished in the classic Rosso Corsa, with contrasting Nero leather & carpets This early 2.7 Motronic 'Pre Airbag' car presents absolutely perfectly, in part thanks to the attention to detail Joe Macari Service Centre lavished on it just 4 years ago when they fully restored it at a cost of over £30,000. This restoration involved sending the car back to Italy where the car was painted & re trimmed to factory specification. The exterior of the car can only be described as flawless, while the interior only shows very minimal signs of ageing in areas such as the removable overmats. Every part of the interior was retrimmed expertly, including many overlooked areas such as bulkhead coverings, dash top, surrounds & steering wheel.

The car is accompanied by a very comprehensive history file which includes various other main dealer invoices in addition to the above stamped history.
Examples such as this just do not come available very often at all. The most loved example we have come across, it simply wants for nothing.
We have looked after & maintained the car on behalf of the owner since 2017, and know it very well. We will of course arrange for the next serive to be carried out by Dick Lovett Swindon at the time of sale.
Stored with us in Berkshire.
