The Ferrari 348 TB

Ferrari 348 TB

Heir to the Ferrari 328 GTB, the Ferrari 348 TB was actually a completely new car, which offered a new interpretation of the two-seater mid-engined V8 berlinetta. The body combined styling cues from the Testarossa – along the flanks – with ones from classic models of the past (such as the front-end treatment, reminiscent of the 375 MM).

On its debut in 1989, the Ferrari 348 set the car world on fire and soon became one of the most popular Ferrari model of all time.
