The Ferrari 348 (Type F119) is a mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive V8-powered 2-seat sports car produced by Ferrari S.p.A., replacing the 328 in 1989 and continuing until 1995.

The 348, badged 348 TB for the coupé (Trasversale Berlinetta) and 348 TS (Spider) for the targa 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, was mounted longitudinally and coupled to a transverse manual gearbox.

The 348’s styling differed from previous models with streaked side air intakes and rectangular taillights resembling the Testarossa. This car, chassis ZFFKA35B000079908 was one of 4 original pre-production cars and this was the first of those 4 made, and was displayed at the Geneva Auto Salon in 1989. The history file states its first date of manufacture as February 1990, these cars were not made available to the public and not put into production until 1990. This car has had only 1 previous owner in Belgium, and has covered merely 8,000 km from new. This is an opportunity to buy possibly the most sought after 348 ever made, and would be a key addition to any Ferrari collection.

Dieses Stück mit Fahrgestellnr. ZFFKA35B000079908 war der erste von nur 4 original Vorproduktionsautos, und wurde auf dem Genfer Autosalon 1989 ausgestellt. Es war der Öffentlichkeit bis Februar 1990 nicht zugänglich und ist dann erst in Produktion gegangen. Dieses Auto hatte nur einen Vorbesitzer, und wurde nur 8.000 km gefahren.
