1995 FERRARI 348
The Pioneering 348 Spider: Introduced in 1993 in Spider guise, with production halting in 1995, with only 1,146 Spiders being produced worldwide -- out of those, only 556 were imported to the U.S. Within this small number, and even smaller number is revealed; in that out of those specified Spiders (such as this splendid condition, end-of-production, and 7,XXX-mile example), less than 70 of those units were featured in Ferrari's scintillating Giallo Fer 102, or best known as "Fly Yellow", that ever so brilliantly renders the luminosity of the Sun. When the 348 debuted in 1989, it featured distinctive design elements from the gorgeous Testarossa, such as the parallel strakes, grilles and rectangular taillights and was one of the last Ferraris to have its development overseen by Enzo Ferrari ( with the other car being the legendary F40); and when the Spider was launched in 1993, not only was it the first Ferrari to offer a two-seater, open-air experience since the highly revered Daytona, but it was also the first convertible Ferrari to utilize the mid-engine and eight-cylinder configuration -- exclusivity and history personified. This 348 Spider features a clean CARFAX, 2-owners from new and is offered with its owner's manuals.
Upon viewing this enrapturing automobile, you're welcomed by an exterior showcased in an arresting Giallo Fer/"Fly Yellow" finish, a manually folding soft-top in Black, side strakes, grille work and a taillight design (all borrowed from the iconic Testarossa), flushed door handle buttons, "DISEGNO di pininfarina" lower side badging located on the lower rocker panel areas,"hidden-headlights" (when retracted, lighting emits from the halogen-projector beams), bumper integrated fog lights, front and rear located "Prancing Horse" emblems in a Chrome-finish, stainless-steel quad exhaust pipes, and 17 - Inch Star-spoke Wheels (displayed against Black brake calipers with White "Ferrari" script). The interior is appointed in supple Black Connolly Leather and is accentuated by Black twin-stitching throughout the cabin. The driver is pleasantly greeted by a 3-spoke and leather-wrapped wheel (with Black stitching), Black instrumentation gauges highlighted by Orange needles and numbering; "spider" script located on the right side of the center console's cover (behind the lid is an Alpine 3DE-7887 audio unit), center tunnel located oil pressure and fuel gauges, as well as the HVAC controls, door lock and gas door release buttons and the much-lauded, 5-speed gated-shifter -- with both driver and front passenger being grasped by bucket seats, featuring Black piping and twin-stitching. Underneath the rear lid lies its high-revving (7,500 RPM redline) and very Italian orchestra sounding 3.4L, eight-cylinder engine -- that when new, produced performance figures of 312 hp w/ 238 ft-lbs of torque, 0-60 in 5.3 seconds, and a top speed of 171 mph while having the power remitted to the rear wheels. Performance is further enhanced by way of its relatively light weight of 3,2XX LBS and factory updates such as a revamped final drive ratio, engine management, suspension, and exhaust systems, provides for an even more dynamic driving experience!
