355 GTS roof question

Did the F335 GTS have a body colored roof panel, black, or both? Just curious as I'm considering it as my first Ferrari and I saw one on Ebay that had a black roof on a red car--not too great looking. I'd much prefer a body colored panel, I just wasn't sure if they came with only black or if you could get body colored (or both). Thanks for the help!

You can have it painted in the body color.

All the F355 GTS' I have seen (mine included) have body colored roof panels. I believe that the black roof (or any other contrasting color) must have been a special order or done by the owner post purchase of the car. If done post purchase, I would recommend takening a very careful look at the quality of the paint job.

Quite the opposite in my knowledge, the body-coloured roof was an option (a must-have one), the default was the black vinyl, like on 308/328/348's. Don't believe that it ever became standard, even in late 98/99 production.

Wow. It looks like 95%+ demanded the option. Do you have any old F355 GTS sales brochures ?
