FERRARI F355 F1 SPIDER CAR PHOTOGRAPHY

Ferrari's are the specialist area that Barkaways excel at and I had the privilege to photograph a very special car for them, more to be revealed next month on this very exclusive restoration. The car shown here is Ian Barkaways own car and has to be one of the best looking F355's I have ever seen, even better that it is in silver as it sets the lines of the car off beautifully. The Berlinetta was the first-ever road car to be equipped with the innovative F1-style gearbox management system. Derived directly from Formula 1, where it made its debut in 1989 winning the Brazilian Grand Prix, the electro-hydraulic system was operated by paddles behind the steering wheel using the F355’s conventional 6 speed manual gearbox.

With the day being overcast and very flat I enhanced the sleek lines of the F355 wit the Profoto B1 flash, gives great fill light and also works so well for some contrasting interior images. The F355 produced just under 380 bhp and was 4.7 seconds off the mark, being just over twenty years old this was blistering performance.
