In many ways, the Ferrari Challenge is a reminder to how Ferrari’s customers raced back in the formative days of the Scuderia’s sports car and GT efforts, featuring production cars that were modified to race on the weekends. The current day Ferrari Challenge mirrors that history. Drivers and dealers participate not only for sport, but for Ferrari to stay close to its clients and get incalculable feedback for future Ferrari road and race cars.

Since 1993, Ferrari Challenge has been where passionate, amateur enthusiast drivers race against like-minded racers on some of the most iconic race tracks in the world in identically-prepared Ferrari Challenge race cars. The Series began with the 348 Berlinetta Challenge and was used until the F355 Challenge began service in 1995 and was raced until 2000. The Series continues on and now races the 488 Challenge and remains a popular stage for displaying ones prowess in competition driving.

This 1995 Ferrari F355 Challenge is reported as being one of the last of the 43 cars built to 1995 Challenge specs. It was purchased through Lake Forest Motorcars and raced the Challenge Series as number 28, first by Dr. Tom Murphy and later by Robert Canepa, achieving respectable results. Its select race results are stated to be third in class at the 1998 Mid-Ohio SCCA Runoffs, a 10th (race one) and 8th (race two) in April 1997 at Texas World Speedway, 11th at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in June 1997, a 7th (race one) and 13th (race two) at Lime Rock in August 1997 and boasts finishing 15th overall in the 1997 Challenge Series.

The Ferrari is in excellent condition having recently received a new, period-correct paint application, new FIA-compliant seats with HANS-ready seatbelts, and a complete engine-out service with valve service. The tachometer has an oil pressure warning light and shift light. New cooling ductwork is installed for the F40 four-wheel disc brakes. The period livery has been applied to the car in vinyl. The Ferrari has a stock block engine with recently reworked heads and resonates through a complete Tubi lightweight exhaust system with a muffler that meets the decibile limits of certain tracks.

As a 1995 model, it is reported that it is possible to obtain the title and license for street use if desired, plus executing work that is necessary to do so. The upgraded OMP roll cage is bolted in and removable. Additionally, the side bars are removable; the side windows have been installed and are easily removable for track time. Among the additions would be installing headlights and catalytic converters. The new owner should determine the local regulations of his dominion to determine the necessary components to execute this conversion.
