THE FERRARI 348

First seen in prototype form in 1987, the Ferrari 348 entered production in 1989, replacing the 328. Mid-engine like its predecessor, the 348 differed by mounting its 3.4 liter four-valves-per-cylinder, quad-cam V8 engine longitudinally, enabling it to be positioned lower in the chassis with the help of a dry sump racing style oil system. 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 for improved handling. The 348 was the last V8 Ferrari to feature manual (non-power assisted) steering making it the enthusiast driver's choice due to its increased responsiveness and road feel compared to the 355 and all other V8 Ferraris that followed it.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Debuting at the 1992 Los Angeles Auto Show, Serie Speciale production was limited to just 100 examples of a special high performance "Stradale" 348s that formed the basis for the 1993 348 Challenge race series cars. Power was increased 15bhp over the standard 348 which together with revised gearing allowed the Serie Speciale to accelerate to 60mph in 5.3 seconds and run the quarter mile in 13.75 seconds according to Ferrari factory statistics. Handling was also improved over the standard 348 with revised rear suspension geometry featuring a wider rear track and a 348 Challenge front spoiler. The Serie Speciale also featured unique styling inside and out with unique front and rear grills, body colored panels in place of blacked out ones on the standard 348, unique leather door panels and Serie Speciale badging. Only 33 tb coupes and 67 ts convertible Targas of this special high performance 348 were built.

The vast majority of Serie Speciales were painted Rosso red. It is believed that only 11 left the factory in Nero black and this is one of just six to have a matching black leather interior. Built in October of 1992 and delivered new to California, this convertible Targa ts Serie Speciale is noted by a plaque as number 098 of the 100 built. The car would remain in California for a decade before being sold to the Midwest with a hair under 22,000 miles on the clock.

The Ferrari has remained in the Midwest for the last 14 years being driven sparingly and carefully maintained. In 2016, the all-important full engine-out service was performed including changing the cam belt. The work was completed by marque specialist North Coast Exotics. Cosmetically, the car was thoroughly prepared and detailed for top level concours competition while retaining original finishes wherever possible.

Showing under 25,000 miles today, this triple black high performance 348 ts Serie Speciale represents the opportunity to not only acquire one of the rarest Ferraris ever made, but one in a uniquely uncommon and sinister color scheme ready to be shown and enjoyed. Complete with its original books, tools, and records, it represents a fine addition to any collection of the rarest Ferraris.
