    I have always wanted to get a look at a right hand drive Ferrari. I have seen a few 355 challenge cars that were right hand drive, but was wondering if that was it.

    I wanted to know if there were other right hand drive Ferraris besides the 355challenge. And are right hand drive cars road legal here??

    My P4 is right hand drive as are most Ferrari comp. cars. (SPA)
    They are road legal in the US. My P4 is also right hand shift. Comp. cars are right hand drive as most race tracks run clockwise and therefore there are more right hand turns which are easier to make from the right seat.

    Pretty much 80% of all Ferraris in England are RHD.

    Although I am not sure your motivation towards a rhd, people surely gawk no matter what it is. There are plenty of RHD Ferraris here in the states. In Seal Beach a guy that lived next to me when we moved to CA had a rhd 308. And many collectors of former racers wind up buying rhd.

    I have a p1800 rhd, and I am thinking that not to be different, but I feel better driving on the right side myself, and I am contimplating my next Fcar being RHD as well.

    With some cars, being right handed and thus a dominant right arm, in my manual steering p1800 and other vintage cars, you would be reluctant to take your dominant arm off the wheel to shift in a hard bank.

    Funny thing is that on Mulholland drive (very curvy on a hilltop in LA) I did better in overall speedwise in my Volvo than I did in my 550 for the first 6 of the 9 months of owning it.
