Introduced in 1989 as a replacement for the 328, the 348 production line ran until 1995, when the 355 was introduced. Late in 1993, after 3 years of production, the 348 was revised with enhanced styling changes and a power lift from 300 to 320BHP from its 3.4 litre V8. At the same time the suspension geometry was revised, which was considered to vastly improve both the handling and ride quality of the car, particularly when coupled with the factory enhanced chassis rigidity. At the same time Ferrari introduced a brand new Spider version.
This car is one of only 75 Spiders that were made in right-hand drive for the UK market. It was delivered in August 1994 and immediately shipped to Singapore and then Malaysia. Approximately 3 years later the car was brought back to the UK and registered on 1st January 1998. The car is reading a mere 19,116 miles and this mileage is supported by 9 stamps in the service book and 13 MoT test certificates. Servicing has been carried out exclusively by Mortimer Houghton Turner and Bob Houghton from 1999 at 4,337 miles. The last major cambelt service was carried out at 18,723 miles in October 2013 by Bob Houghton.
Supplied with a decent history file, current MoT until September 2015 and all books and tools, this 348 Spider is presented in the superb colour combination of Rosso Corsa with Nero leather interior. This beautiful car will be supplied with a full condition report by respected Ferrari specialists Terry Keys at Silverstone prior to the auction. 348 prices have been steadily climbing in recent years and this example is the best we have seen for many years.
