This very pretty & understated italian convertible is presented in rare metallic Chiaro Blue with a Capote Blue roof, Grigio (pale grey) leather and complimenting navy blue carpets.
One of only 68 RHD cars produced, this appreciating classic was supplied new by Maranello Concessionaires through the official dealer Mortimer Houghton Turner (M.H.T.), and delivered to its first owner on 11th October 1995 – making it one of the very last 348’s produced.
Being one of the last cars, it benefits from some of the chassis and running gear improvements that can be found on the later 355 – making it a very well balanced, fun, and ultimately superior car compared to earlier 348 models!
This truly is an exceptional car, and not the norm for a 348. Fifteen years or so ago, these cars became relatively cheap to buy, and many of them fell into the hands of owners who could not afford to maintain them properly. This car however, has been well cared for and spent many years in storage without neglect, being stored for 8 of its 32 years. Now showing an enviable and warranted mileage of circa 29k miles, it’s service history is also extremely comprehensive, having been serviced every 3,000 miles on average.
The condition it presents today is as good as any we’ve seen. Its seats appear to have never been connollised, the hood is in perfect condition, as is the paintwork and alloys, and the engine bay is superb. Put simply, this car is very original and shows no signs of restoration, just enviable pampering.
Following recommissioning after its past 3 years in storage, the car is offered with a full service including cambelts, and is accompanied by all tools, full original book pack, two keys and Tracker.
