The Ferrari 348 (Type F119) is a mid-engined, rear-wheel-drive V8-powered 2-seat sports car by Ferrari, replacing the 328 in 1989 and continuing until 1995. It was the final V8 mid-engine model developed by Enzo Ferrari before his death, commissioned to production posthumously.
The Ferrari 348 made its debut in September 1989 at the Frankfurt Auto Show to positive review, as Road & Track magazine described, to many, it was Best in Show. In a later 1991 comparison against the NSX, Road & Track inquired, Has Honda bettered Ferrari? The magazine concluded the Ferrari 348 was the better exotic and would later name it one of the ten best cars in the world. Auto journalists described the 348 as, “something quite special,” and the engine being the formative element in defining the car’s character, rising in an, “operatic crescendo,” having the, “power to raise goose bumps as Pavarotti climbing to that note in Nessun Dorma.”
Gavin Green reviewed the 348 against contemporaries in Car Magazine, Oct 1990: There is nothing like it. It communicates so richly, involves you so completely. And, when you have finished driving it cocooned in that exquisite cockpit you can get out and feast your eyes on one of the loveliest cars ever designed.
LA Times staff writer Paul Dean described the car in July 1990: Ferrari builds motor cars in much the same way Claude Monet painted landscapesnot to please the populace, but more to satisfy self, a technique and a coterie, with the 348 as a better looking, stronger, faster successor to the enormously successful 308/328 series, and thoroughly irresistible. Revising the longitudinal V8 layout in the way of the 288 GTO and F40, with a dry sump and transversely mounted new gearbox and transmission (actually a carry-over from a Ferrari Formula 1 racing car), the center of gravity is lower by about 2 inches. Ergo flatter handling, and better steering response.
