The last V8-powered Ferrari to have been developed under the direction of Enzo Ferrari, the 348 was produced between 1989 and 1995 with Pininfarina-designed bodywork inspired by the flagship Testarossa model. This 1990 example is one of 4,228 TS Targa-top versions produced in total and comes finished in Rosso Corsa over a tan leather interior. It was acquired by the seller in 2018 and underwent a major service in 2019 including a Ferrari Classiche certification. Showing just over 7k miles on the odometer, this 346 TS is now being offered for auction by its longtime owner out of Florida.
The Ferrari 348 was designed by Leonardo Fioravanti at Pininfarina and incorporated styling cues from the Testarossa including straked side air intakes and rectangular taillights. This example is finished in traditional Rosso Corsa paint with black lower bodywork and rides on factory 17” 5-spoke alloy wheels. Other features include a removable roof panel, pop-up headlamps, a vented engine cover, flying buttress rear pillars, quad exhaust outlets, and a front spoiler with integrated fog lights. The car is described to be in excellent overall condition and the tires show production date codes from 1999. Detailed images are provided in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report.
The cabin features tan Connolly leather upholstery covering the seats, center console, and lower dashboard with matching carpets and contrasting black leather for the upper dashboard and door panels. Accessories include power windows and mirrors, air conditioning, a stereo system, a three-spoke leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a polished gated shifter assembly. All gauges and accessories are said to be working properly and the cabin is described to be in excellent original condition.
Power comes from a Tipo F119 3.4-liter DOHC V8 quad-cam engine featuring a flat-plane crankshaft and dry sump lubrication. Up to 300 HP and 239 lb.-ft of torque is sent to the rear wheels by way of a 5-speed manual transaxle and a limited-slip differential. The seller notes a major service was completed by Ferrari in February 2019 including a new engine timing belt, bearings, valve covers, gaskets, and more. A Ferrari Classiche certificate was also issued and confirms the originality of the engine and transmission. Service records are provided for reference in the gallery.
This sale will include owner’s manuals, a window sticker, a toolkit, a spare tire, a clean title, some service records, and a Ferrari Classiche certificate.
