1995 Ferrari 355 Spider at Scottsdale
2023 Barrett Jackson
Sold for: $71,500.00
Market Value: $85,054.00
Attention all thrill-seekers and speed demons: the ultimate driving dream has arrived! We saw this beauty at Barrett Jackson last week.
Cult Cars strongly believes that any Ferrari that isn’t red is the right choice to make. You didn’t buy a Ferrari to be subtle, so go with something bold like this Gialla Fly Yellow 355 Spider. If you were looking for a Ferrari that would stand out in a sea of red, then this little beauty with its bold color choice would be the head-turner to cause a stir on the streets.
This 355 is a great example of a belt-driven, manual transmission Ferrari that is coming into the realm of reasonable ownership costs. While maintenance might still be extremely
expensive on these cars, the purchase cost has been coming down over the last few years. We think this particular car was a screaming deal at $71,500! Even though it most likely needs a major service (costing between $7k - $15k) this car is not only still under the market value, but it's also decked out in a desirable yellow-over-black color combination. Driving a gated manual Ferrari was once a pleasure that you wouldn’t achieve without spending well into 6 figures, here you could have that dream come true for under $100k!
This Ferrari is a 28-year-old gem that sparkles like it's fresh off the factory floor. She appears to show signs of original paint and interior. You'd never believe this baby was born in the 90s, but if you can ignore the "period styling" its still a middle finger to the laws of physics and a testament to the timelessness of Italian engineering.
Sitting behind the wheel of a gated manual Ferrari used to be a luxury reserved for those with a healthy bank account, but now, with this ride, you can have that experience for less than $100k. That's a steal, my friends, a steal. So, if you're looking for a Ferrari that's bold, daring, and unapologetically extravagant, this Gialla Fly Yellow 355 Spider would have been a best-buy at Barrett Jackson this year!

Adam Sheehan Professional Detailer/Collection Manager
Owner – Adam’s Auto Spa
As a professional detailer I have spent my career working on a wide variety of cars, from brand new Supercars all the way through to original 60’s Muscle Cars. My specialties are in various forms of paint correction, anything from preservation detailing of original paint cars all the way through to full texture knockdowns and corrections on high level show paints.
I have served as a member of the Adam’s Polishes show team for over a year attending Barrett Jackson Auctions as an official detailer, I have also served as a detailer for Hot August Nights, one of the largest muscle car shows in the world. At these events, I have expanded my knowledge and skillset by working on a wide range of vehicles and paint systems. There are few places in the world where you get the opportunity to work on multiple different paint systems within such short periods of time, I have used this opportunity to hone in my processes on paint systems that most detailers rarely see.
