The Ferrari 348 was the final mid-engined V8 Ferrari to be developed under the direction of Enzo Ferrari. Replacing the Ferrari 328, it was launched in 1989. The name shows how it had advanced over the 328 – instead of a 3.2-litre V8, it had a 3.4-litre V8. Hence, 348. Codenamed Type F119, launch cars produced 300 horsepower. The low-drag Pininfarina-designed body (it was overseen by Leonardo Fioravanti) helped deliver a big step in performance, and the engine could rev to almost 8,000rpm.
The name of 348 gives us the characteristics of the car. The number 34 comes from its displacement (3,405cc) and the number 8 from its cylinders. Its engine is an evolution of the one that premiered the Mondial T, which in turn is an evolution of the engine that the 328 had. But instead of going in a transverse position, in the 348 it goes in a longitudinal position. Another important change is found in the injection. To date, Ferrari used the Magneti Marelli brand, but in the 348 it began to use Bosch injection with a Motronic control unit.
Production of the 348 TS between 1990 and 1993 was just 4.228 units.
