    If that wasn't an F1 I would sell my F355 GTS to buy that one!

    How comfortable are the carbon seats?

    Carbon seats are Comfortable but sit couple of inches higher so tall owners would lose some headspace.

    the interior is a bit loud but you can modify anything. Finding those seats is not easy. GTS are also harder to find...

    like 95 B

    Wasn't that car discussed on here awhile ago? I believe it's been for sale for at least a few months.

    To me it’s not ugly at all... just a lot of red. Swap for a black steering wheel and black top dash and it would be good to me.

    I was going to comment the exact thing, but even then, it's ugly. The only car I have seen that actually looked good with a red interior was a white '62 Vette. It's not just the red and blue which is a terrible combination, even with black wheel and dash, but the shade of red. Saw a white Boxster with red. It didn't do it for me. Wrong red. The right red can look good with white or black, but that's about it. Another interior color that's hard to pull off is blue. A navy blue can look good with white, but that's about it, IMO.

    I agree with Robb, this car is stunning and a very rare color combo of TDF/Bordeaux. I talked to the guy the minute it hit the market. They just want to much for it. It’s the highest sticker price on a 355 I have ever seen.

    Lol! Either you’re a red interior guy or you’re not. Had a V10 M5 silver with red interior. Such a dope ride - redlined it every gear every day for 62k miles!

    I’d rather have a burgundy (Bordeaux) interior than Rosso but I like it. Your ears and other senses will like the rest of the package.

    I have to expand my cars colors. Yes, red (and blue) interiors can look good with silver, again, navy blue or a darker red. But mostly a brighter red interior say pimp mobile to me, even if it's red on white. Though whih a chassis like this I might take a ride. :)

    Their asking 78k for it. That is hardly the highest priced 355 to hit the market. That price reflects its lack of draw in the marketplace IMO.

    If that was cuoio it would be sold in a heart beat

    I notice the misspelling and even went back to edit the post, but as you noted, I was just too dam excited to get it right. (Doesn't take much when you are 73.) Zipper fob? I'll just dress for the occasion. :D

    I was referring to the original window sticker not the asking price. Two different things...

    Was entropy's car blue/red or blue/bordeaux?

    Bordeaux interiors I like a lot. Straight up red not so much.

    I like the red interior, but it would be nicer if the car was black.

    I was on the mobile.de website looking at some f355’s for sale in Europe where there were a few blue F355’s with more traditional color interiors. The mileage was higher along with higher asking prices.

    I agree with Rob, put some black to break up the red and it might be just enough to tone it down a bit or reupholster the interior.

    I have more reluctance about the F1 set up then the interior.

    Pretty sure that’s the first black over green Ferrari I’ve ever heard of. Unicorn for sure. I like it.
