Ferrari F355 Spider

www.supercars.net
In 1994 Ferrari offered a convertible version of their 355 known as the Spider.
The engine’s greatest innovation is its five-valves per cylinder, three intake and two exhaust, that combined high revs with high intake permeability maximizing gross efficiency.
The engine was controlled by a Bosch Motronic M2.7 twin hot wire electronic injection-static ignition system, and lubricated by a dry sump engine oil circuit.
