The Ferrari 355 F1 Berlinetta is a mid-engine sports coupe built by Ferrari between 1997 and 1999.

The F355, introduced in 1994, would be equipped three years later with a Formula One style paddle gear shift electrohydraulic manual transmission to become the 355 F1, allowing the driver to not have to take their hands off of the steering wheel whilst changing gears.

An open-top Spider entered production alongside the F1 Berlinetta in 1997.

It is an evolution of the Ferrari 348 and was replaced by the Ferrari 360 in 2000. The F1 Berlinetta and Spider were the only models in the 355 series to be equipped with a Formula One gearbox.

Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit

The 355 F1 Berlinetta appears in the PlayStation release of Need for Speed III: Hot Pursuit as a B class vehicle.
