3. Ferrari 355 F1

355 is one the most loved modern Ferraris. Introduced in 1994, it replaced the 348 model. An improvement in virtually every way,  355 combined a gorgeous and dramatic Pininfarina-designed exterior with increased performance and better real-world drivability. The V-8-powered, mid-engine sports car was offered in coupe (Berlinetta), convertible (Spyder) and removable-hard-top (Targa) versions. The 355’s “F1” model is notable for offering one of the first examples of a “flappy paddle” gearbox in a road car. This Formula 1-developed technology allowed for ultra-fast, clutch-free shifting via steering-wheel-mounted paddles.
