F1 to manual full conversion in 2011 by Carl Steuer of Black Horse motorsports in Los Angeles.

(The 355 F1 is still a manual trans from the factory- the conversion to 3 pedals is non intrusive you are basically just removing the F1 System, installing shifter / gate & rod + adding 3rd pedal to pedal box) of course it is now impossible to find these factory parts but thankfully this one was done years ago.

Exterior  The stunning Argento paint shows  well, the previous owner had a decent respray done a few years back so there are no major scratches or dents visible.  Among the rare options on this car are Scuderia Factory shields + Steel brake calipers w drilled rotors painted silver-OEM wheels are clean and free of curb rash. OEM Euro lenses up front- Car is lowered on original coilovers just a little bit and has a nice aggressive stance. Black rear Challenge grill also added and looks stunning on the car. 

*Interior  is in very good condition, The leather is still nice and soft on the very rare & sought after late production carbon race seats in plain weave carbon. Dash is neat with no leather pulling  - headliner, carpets all good-No sticky buttons, those were dealt with already-  Radio delete plate is present

(who needs a radio in one of these)  the interior of the car is really in spectacular shape. 

*Mechanically The car is mechanically sound and had just gone an extensive engine out major service in 2020- I just had the car inspected, and the only notable finding was dime sized shift shaft seal leak, exhaust sound valve sticks,  and there was a hose clip missing from a hose (got new clip)  car pulls hard, sounds good and has plenty of power. Manual Trans shifts nice smooth, new clutch done around 8K miles ago-  Recently passed CA smog -
