Ferrari 348 spider
Just look at it! Only produced in 1993 and 1994 with 1.090 examples the Spider shares the same upgraded 320 bhp engine of the second generation 348's: the 348 GTB & the 348 GTS. The 348 in general has such a strong identity and is from miles away recognizable not only as a Ferrari, but also as a 348. Pininfarina did a great job here and didn't have to find inspiration in other models whatsoever. Together with the Testarossa a new style was introduced which stands out from everything else. Remember, never before were those horizontal door lines and typical rear lights seen on any other Ferrari. A masterpiece of design back in the day and still today a great sign of Italian flair if you ask me.
A blue Ferrari, una Ferrari in Blu Sera...!!
Chassis 98316 is delivered new by the famous and historical Garage Francorchamps and moved pretty quickly to France and Spain as all the invoices and general paperwork tells us.
