Hot Rodding a Ferrari is like planning the space program. Even if you found the smartest people and had plenty of ready cash, you could still end up flat broke and wondering what you did it for.
Anyone who would take on such an ambitious project would be advised to understand the intricacies of Ferrari tuning under the urgency of an endurance race.
Someone like a race driver.
This modified F355 belongs to Jeff Segal, who at 17 anni, was the youngest race winner in the history of the Ferrari Challenge series, and who went on to achieve class wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans and Rolex 24 at Daytona. Mr. Segal spent a large part of his racing career handling Ferrari-built kit on racing circuits, and teaching others.
Then, when it came time to do his F355 project, he had the vision for it, along with the proper born-from-Motorsports mindset.
I drove Jeff’s 1999 F355 “Modificata” at Monticello Motor Club, and then met he to discuss the details behind this very special Ferrari Hot Rod inspired by the Ferrari Challenge racing series.
Mr. Segal has no plans to start building F355 Modificatas for clients, but if you are interested he will likely take your call.
