Ferrari 355 F1 for 4 Years - Ownership Cost

Illustration for article titled Ferrari 355 F1 for 4 Years - Ownership Cost

I’ve finally sat down and added up all of the costs of the F355 that I incurred over my ownership period which lasted 3 years and 10 months, and drove for a total of about 10,000 miles.


Maintenance and repairs: US$26,283.92
(for the curious, the largest single cost was the major service at $13,716.64)

Optional items, upgrades, cosmetic restoration work: US$5,241.20

Sale price “gain”: US$11,000.00

Ownership Cost (Excluding optional items): US$15,283.92
(Approximate Average Annual Cost: $3821)


Yes, it can be ruinously expensive if not carefully budgeted for. No, it was not wildly different from my expectation.


F355 Experience Rating: 9/10
Doable and absolutely worth it, but not for the faint of heart or the unprepared. And don’t expect a car’s price to climb reliably—mine was certainly a fluke.

Besides, how do you put a price tag on a childhood dream?
