A friend sent me these pictures. This Ferrari was apparently parked outside the main entrance of the 2008 Concours D'elegance show for a while. (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/vintag...-report-5.html (India’s First International Concours D’Elegance - Pictures & Report))

Damn.. The rear looks so killer. I bow down to this immaculately maintained Prancing Horse.

Wondering if those are stock wheels and tires. The fat tires really stick out beyond the fender in the rear view. Pinninfarina would never design like that.

Most definitely not stock sizes.
I'm guessing the tyres are atleast 2-3cm wider, and possibly a very different offset from those deep dishes (the OEM alloys seemed pretty "flat").
Looks great though.

This car used to br black earlier and is equipped with a tubi exhaust. This car was earlier owned by the Senan's of Delhi.
Guess the badging is wrong too, it's actually a GTB.

Yes Karl the 348 stood outside the concours D'elegance show till almost 4pm. The wheels and tyres are from the 355. The car is immaculately maintained right from the start and the current owner is the second owner of the car. I even heard from his friend that he flies down the mechanics to service the car.
The SL belongs to a friend and the GTR to someone i know.

No anish I think badging is right. The targa top is of the body colour if you look closely

the irony is that the 348 was one of the worst ferraris to come out of the factory. pathetic handling and no performance worth talking about. the past president of ferrari Luca di Mont got smoked at the lights by an Abarth fiat and he couldnt keep up in his 348. This spurned the revolution within the company, headed by Luca to re-write the ways they made cars. So i guess you can thank the 348 for the current crop of ferraris today.

The 360 was the last proper good looking car they made IMO. Today's Ferraris are all aerodynamically flawless. But they aren't beautiful are they?
