Our car is a 1990 / G Registered car, having previously been registered in Italy.
It has covered 68,477 Kilometers (42,550 Miles) from new.
There is little known about the history of the car in Italy, other than the car spent the last 10 years stored in a big collection of Italian SuperCars and not driven.
It was registered in the UK on 01/05/2015 when an extensive program of 'rejuvenation' was undertaken, addressing the lack of service and the remedial work needed to the bodywork.
The car is in the obligatory Rosso Corsa with the hard wearing and practical Nero Leather Upholstery.
There was little choice of options for Ferrari 348, other than the derivative of TB (coupe), TS (targa), or Spider (convertible) the only other things you could choose was Metallic Paint & Luggage Set!
The car has only just received a full service at a specialist, where the cambelts & tensioners were changed, timing reset, engine bay cleaned and the complete engine assembly was refitted.
The MoT expires on15/06/2016.

The 348, badged 348 tb for the coup� (Trasversale Berlinetta) and 348 ts (Targa) and the 348sp (Spider, or Convertible) versions, features a normally aspirated 3.4-litre version of the quad-cam, four-valve-per-cylinder V8 engine. As with its predecessors, the model number was derived from this configuration, with the first two digits being the displacement and the third being the number of cylinders. The engine, which produced 300 hp (224 kW), was mounted longitudinally and coupled to a transverse manual gearbox, like the Mondial t with which the 348 shared many components. This was a significant change for Ferrari, with most previous small Ferraris using a transverse engine with longitudinal transmission. The "T" in the model name 348 tb and ts refers to the transverse position of the gearbox. Overall, 2,895 examples of the 348 tb and 4,230 of the 348 ts were produced.
The 348's styling differed from previous models with straked side air intakes and rectangular taillights resembling the Testarossa. The F355 that replaced it returned to the styling cues of the 328 with round tail lights and rounded side air scoops. Fifty-seven "Challenge" models were built for owners who wanted a more "track-ready" car.
The 348 was fitted with dual-computer engine management using twin Bosch Motronic ECUs, double-redundant anti-lock brakes, and self-diagnosing air conditioning and heating systems. Late versions (1993 and beyond) have Japanese-made starter motors and Nippondenso power generators to improve reliability, as well as the battery located within the front left fender for better weight distribution.
