The 348 was a mid-engine, two-seater sports car by Ferrari, made between 1989 and 1995. It was the last V8 mid-engine car developed by Enzo Ferrari before his death. It was a replacement in their model lines for the 328 GTB, but so many design changes were implemented that it looked like an entirely different car. The sides of the car were meant to look much like the Testarossa, but other parts of the car, such as the nose, looked sleeker, like the 375MM.
Several versions were created. The coupe was badged TB, which stood for Trasversale Berlinetta. The Targa was the 348 TS and the Spider convertible was the 348 SP. Following Ferrari’s naming scheme, the first two digits of the model name stood for the displacement and the third being the number of cylinders. Therefore, it was a 3.4 liter, eight cylinder engine.
The engine was longitudinally mounted and paired with a transverse manual gearbox, much like the Mondial T, which shared many features and components with the 348. This design was borrowed from the very successful Ferrari 312-T Formula 1 race cars.
The 3405 cc mid mounted engine used a transverse 5-speed transmission with a synchromesh gearbox and transaxle unit. It had twin overhead camshafts per bank with four valves per cylinder. The fuel feed used a Bosch Motronic electronic injection and ignition used Bosch static electronic with a single spark plug per cylinder. The 348 produced 300 horsepower and had a top speed over 275 km/hour. It had a blazing fast 0-100 km/hour speed of just 5.6 seconds.
A special edition was developed for the US market, called the 348 Serie Speciale. Only 115 units were made, 35 of those were spider models, called the TS Serie Speciale. The horsepower was increased to 315 due to slight design changes, such as improved aerodynamics. It had a 0-60 mph time of 5.3 seconds and a standing quarter mile of 13.75 seconds.
