1990 Ferrari 348 TB

Introduced in 1989, the 348 was a major departure for Ferrari’s successful road-going, mid-engine series of sports cars and it replaced two of the most popular Ferrari models in history, the 308 and the 328. The new car featured a pressed-steel monocoque chassis that helped to reduce mass and, in the style of the legendary 288 GTO, it combined a transversely mounted gearbox coupled to a longitudinally mounted engine allowing for a very balanced and agile sports car.

The 348 was luxuriously equipped with air-conditioning and a multitude of power features, making it a much more civilized overall package than its predecessor. It was a watershed design for Ferrari who, for the first time, incorporated innovations learned from Formula One Grand Prix development programs into the basic attributes and configuration of production road cars, a technology that continues today in supercars like the current F430. The 348 also introduced the Ferrari Challenge Series that remains popular with enthusiasts.

1990 Ferrari 348 TB

1991 Ferrari 348 TB Berlinetta – sold for $79,200. The stunning 1991 348 TB Berlinetta offered here is an extraordinary time-capsule Ferrari that has covered less than 300 miles from new. An outstanding mid-engine sports car, it is finished in the beautiful combination of black paint with an unblemished Bordeaux leather interior. The car has barely been touched since it left the showroom almost two decades ago and has been in the care of fastidious collectors who took great lengths to preserve it. It is complete with its original factory books, tools, warranty card and leather owner’s folio.

In 2006, despite its limited use and showing a mere 135 miles, this 348 was treated to a major service and the crucial timing belt was replaced. To maintain its impressive operating condition, Ferrari of San Diego recently performed a tune and safety inspection. The current owner has also had the car carefully detailed to maintain its wonderful cosmetic condition.

This 348 is exceptionally original and pristine in every respect and is significant not only for its remarkable level of preservation but also for its status as a seminal transition car in the history of mid-engine Ferraris. This special 348 has only been shown once, at the Ferrari Concours d’Elegance in Reading, Pennsylvania, where it was judged as a 99-point car and awarded the prestigious and rarely achieved Platinum Award. This is a very rare opportunity to own an original condition, Platinum Award-winning Ferrari that has yet to achieve full recognition for its significant contribution to Ferrari’s history and will certainly provide a unique and rewarding ownership experience. Auction Source: 2011 Amelia Island Auction by Gooding & Company
