The Ferrari 348

First seen in prototype form in 1987, the Ferrari 348 entered production in 1989, replacing the immensely successful 328 GTB/GTS. Mid-engine like its predecessor, the 348 differed by mounting its four-valves-per-cylinder, quad-cam V8 engine - now enlarged to 3.4-liters - longitudinally, enabling it to be positioned lower in the chassis. Another new feature was the transversely mounted five-speed gearbox - a spin-off from Ferrari's contemporary Formula 1 technology - that enabled weight to be concentrated within the wheelbase. This combination of a lower center of gravity and better weight distribution addressed one of the perceived shortcomings of the 328: a lack of composure when cornering hard. Initially typed 'tb' and 'ts' - trasversale berlinetta and trasversale spyder - the 348 reverted to Ferrari's traditional GTB/GTS nomenclature part way through production.

The Motorcar Offered

Stunningly elegant in its Pininfarina garb with less than 11,200 miles on its odometer, this Ferrari 348 is an exquisite representative of the much acclaimed 348 Berlinetta model. Special ordered in Blu Medio – or Medium Blue – with grey upholstery, this 348 was purchased new in March, 1990, at Monterey Jaguar/Rolls/Ferrari of Seaside, California. Fastidious in the upkeep of his favored Berlinetta, the owner ensured the car received regular maintenance by experts for 24 years, its most recent engine-out service at 10,680 miles being commissioned in 2014 and completed by Forza Motors of Monterey, just prior to its sale to the current owner. Since then this Ferrari has received yet another service at the hands of Sphere Motorsports of Houston, Texas.

Today, we offer a true pure-blood Ferrari 348 TB – unmodified, in its original configuration. The original grey leather upholstery shows beautifully, and paint meter readings suggest this car sports most of its original paint. Both the mechanicals and the cosmetics are in good fettle, as one might expect on a truly pampered automobile. The car comes with a well-documented file of service records and receipts, plus a set of original manuals, books, tools and emergency accessories. In preparation for auction preview, the 1990 Ferrari 348 TB has received a thorough detailing, and presents with a clean CARFAX, verifying its limited ownership and stringent service record.
Considering the Ferrari pedigree, special order color combination, meticulous service history and minimal ownership, this exceptional 1990 Ferrari 348 TB must be one of the best ones on the market, and a worthy accomplice on the open road.
