FOOTNOTES

First seen in prototype form in 1987, the Ferrari 348 entered production in 1989, replacing the immensely successful 328 GTB/GTS. Mid-engined like its predecessor, the 348 differed by mounting its four-valves-per-cylinder, quad-cam V8 engine - now enlarged to 3.4 litres - longitudinally, enabling it to be positioned lower in the chassis. Another new departure was the transversely mounted five-speed gearbox - a spin-off from Ferrari's contemporary Formula 1 technology - which enabled weight to be concentrated within the wheelbase, thereby further improving the already brilliant roadholding. Initially typed 'tb' and 'ts' - trasversale berlinetta and trasversale spyder respectively - the 348 reverted to Ferrari's traditional GTB/GTS nomenclature part way through production. With its aerodynamic skirts, spoilers, minimal overhangs, and distinctive Testarossa-style gill slats feeding air to side-mounted radiators, the stocky 348 looked very much like a scaled-down Testarossa and, with around 300bhp on tap and a top speed of around 170mph 274km/h, gave little away in terms of outright performance to its larger, 12-cylinder sibling. In 1993 a more powerful (320bhp) open roadster was introduced - the 348 Spider - which did away with the GTS's prominent roll-over bar, Targa-type removable roof panel, and small side windows for a more minimalist look. Spider production ceased in 1995 after only 1,090 had been made. 

Finished in red with beige leather interior, this 348 Spider currently displays at total of circa 27,000 kilometres on the odometer and is described by the vendor as in excellent original condition. The car is offered with sundry bills and Belgian registration papers.

 

1995 Ferrari 348 Spider

Carrozzeria di Pininfarina

Telaio nr. ZFFUA438000097871

• Rara variante Spider 

• Una delle sole 1.090 348 Spider costruite

• Circa 27.000 chilometri percorsi

• Immatricolata in Belgio

Vista per la prima volta in forma prototipo nel 1987, la Ferrari 348 entrò in produzione nel 1989, sostituendo la 328 GTB/GTS di immenso successo. Equipaggiata con un motore centrale-posteriore, come la vettura che l'aveva preceduta, la 348 si differenziava per avere il propulsore, sempre un V8 a 4 alberi a camme in testa e 32 valvole, ora portato a 3,4 litri di capacità, montato in posizione longitudinale, per poter essere posizionato più in basso nel telaio. Un'altra novità era data dal cambio, a cinque marce, montato trasversalmente e direttamente derivato dalla contemporanea Formula 1 della Ferrari, che ha permesso di concentrare il peso all'interno dell'interasse, migliorando ulteriormente la già brillante tenuta di strada. Inizialmente battezzate 'tb' e 'ts' - trasversale berlinetta e trasversale spyder rispettivamente – le 348 sono tornate alla tradizionale nomenclatura Ferrari GTB e GTS nel corso della produzione. Con le sue bandelle aerodinamiche, lo spoiler, gli sbalzi minimi e le lamelle distintive, in puro stile Testarossa, che alimentano d'aria i radiatori montati lateralmente, la robusta 348 sembrava molto simile a un Testarossa in scala ridotta. Con circa 300 Cv e una velocità massima di circa 274 km/h, aveva poco da invidiare, in termini di prestazioni pure, alla sorella più grande, a 12 cilindri. Nel 1993 fu introdotta una versione aperta roadster più potente (320 CV) - la 348 Spider - che eliminò il vistoso ed ingombrante roll-bar della GTS, il pannello del tetto rimovibile rigido tipo Targa e le piccole finestrature laterali per un look più minimalista. La produzione della versione Spider terminò nel 1995, dopo sole 1.090 unità.

Rifinita in rosso con interni in pelle beige, questa 348 Spider riporta un totale di circa 27.000 chilometri sul contachilometri ed è descritta dal venditore come in ottime condizioni originali. L'auto è offerta accompagnata da svariate fatture e documenti di immatricolazione belgi.

TESTIMONIALS

I am not a natural flatterer, I like to think that I "tell it like it is", politely I hope. So when I tell you that I am very impressed by the contents of your website, it is just not English politeness. I of course love the subject matter but you deal with it in an energetic and respectful manner. I am overwhelmed by the research that has gone into compiling the list of coachbuilders/bodybuilders for Europe and North America. I have never heard of the vast majority of them. Congratulations on an excellent website.
