TheFerrari 348(Type F119) is amid-engined, rear-wheel-driveV8-powered 2-seatsports carbyFerrari, replacing the328in 1989 and continuing until 1995. It was the final V8 mid-engine model developed byEnzo Ferraribefore his death, commissioned to production posthumously.
The 348's styling differed from previous models with straked side air intakes and rectangular taillights resembling theTestarossa, stylistic themes reminiscent of theF40, the worlds fastest production car at the time, and other prestigious Ferraris of the past. The model was also the final design overseen by chief stylistLeonardo Fioravanti, known for such designs as the Ferrari F40,Ferrari Daytona,Ferrari 512 Berlinetta Boxer,Ferrari 288 GTO, P5 and P6, and others. The F355 that replaced it returned to the styling cues of the 328 with round tail lights and rounded side air scoops. Fifty-seven "Challenge" models were built for owners who wanted a more "track-ready" car.
The 348 was fitted with dual-computer engine management using twin Bosch Motronic ECUs, double-redundantanti-lock brakes, and self-diagnosingair conditioningand heating systems. Late versions (1993 and beyond) haveJapanese-made starter motors and Nippondenso power generators to improve reliability, as well as the battery located within the front left fender for better weight distribution.
