    Been without a Ferrari for several years now hanging on the sidelines itching to get back in. My baby girls are finally getting to the age where I can take them for a ride and see their faces light up like mine did back when my dad first took me out in his 365.

    Looking for a well sorted, properly documented 1999 F355 GTS. Has to be a 1999 (nothing to do with the car but a special year to me personally). Don’t want Giallo Modena Yellow, black, white or Rosso Corsa Red. Would love any of the darker reds (Barchetta, Fiorano, Prugna, Rubino, etc.), darker blues (TDF, Nart, etc.) or darker grays. Of course I’d love a true manual transmission BUT I’m not opposed nor scared of the F1 transmission; they seem to be a great value and sell for significantly less than the 3-pedal cars do. I’m a technician by trade so a GTS in need of the engine out service would allow me to perform it the way I like. Of course this is a tall order here given the 1999, GTS and color preference but I’m patient and hopeful.

    Hello:
    I clearly understand you are not looking for red however just in case you are open to it, I have the car you are looking for (but the color)
    My car has 32,000 miles and complete service history, It is in great condition, I added the top of the line Capristo exhaust and it sounds just like an Formula One car at 5000 + RPM

    The only reason I am selling is because I would like to buy a Testarossa or a 1991/92 Diablo

    Should you be interest, just let me know
    Thanks

    Thank you. I had come across that car a few months back; coincidently it's not too far from my home. Pretty hung up on the 1999 part.

    Good luck in your search. The F1 GTS is the rarest variant of the 355 excluding the challenge/fiorano cars. Only 524 made I believe, and I doubt many of those came optioned as well as that blue 98 for sale right now.

    If that car was a Berlinetta it'd be in my garage right now. :D

    Did you look at the '99 GTS F1 at Black Horse?

    Perfect in every way but the color - every F car I’ve ever owned has been Rosso and I’m really trying to buy that one car I’ve always wanted.

    If you are still looking, know of a well documented '99 GTS 6MT with 30k miles.
    .... BUT, it's Giallo :/

    Thank you very much for the offer. I really do want to hold out for a darker red or blue GTS though.
