The 348 badged 348 tb for the coupé (Trasversale Berlinetta) and 348 ts (Targa) and the 348sp (Spider or Convertible) 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 (224 kW) was mounted longitudinally and coupled to a transverse manual gearbox like the Mondial t with which the 348 shared many components. This was a significant change for Ferrari derived from their immensely successful 312-T Formula 1 race cars with most previous small Ferraris using a transverse engine with longitudinal transmission. The “T” in the model name 348 tb and ts refers to the transverse position of the gearbox. Overall 2895 examples of the 348 tb and 4230 of the 348 ts were produced (re;Wikipedia). This Ferrari is unique and has been vinyl wrapped the original gray color which looks very nice. The seats have been redone and look very nice. This 348 runs and drives very well.
