  • Comprehensive history file

The Ferrari 348 was a mid-engined, rear wheel drive V8 powered two-seater replacing the 328 in 1989 and continuing until 1995. Badged 348 TB for the coupé (Berlinetta) and 348 TS (Spider) for the targa versions, it features a naturally aspirated 3.4 litre version of the quad-cam, four valve per cylinder engine which was originally found in the 288GTO. As with its predecessors, the model number was derived from this configuration with the first two digits being the displacement and the third being the number of cylinders. The engine, which produced 300bhp, was mounted longitudinally and coupled to a transverse manual gearbox, similar to the Mondial T with which the 348 shared many components. The 'T' in the model name TB and TS refers to the transverse position of the gearbox. The 348 was equipped with a dry-sump oil system to prevent oil starvation at high speeds and during hard cornering.

This fabulous example of a manual right hand drive Ferrari 348 is presented in Rosso Corsa with Crema leather trim and boasts a low mileage of just 58,343. This example was supplied new by Maranello Ferrari, Egham in 1991 who then performed the first four services. The car has since been cared for by Greypaul Ferrari, Lancaster Ferrari in Colchester and JCT600 Ferrari. Inside there are no ‘sticky buttons’ and the car presents fabulously well with a full leather book pack and comprehensive history file containing invoices, previous MoT’s and details of ownership. QV London performed a cambelt service in April 2021 for Slades Garage in Penn where the vendor purchased the car but unfortunately due to a shoulder injury the vendor can no longer drive and so with a heavy heart he is forced to sell. Inspecting the car and the history file will lead any interested party to view this as a very well cared for car. Offered with a MoT test certificate valid until June 2022 and the current V5 Registration document, we strongly advise viewing to recognise what is an appreciating example of the great Italian car manufacturer.
