The picture taken by Dippy in the second link provided by Rehaan, is the one brought down by BAD 130Y. The car never belonged to or belongs to him. He just imported it for someone i know.
There are only two 348's in question here Jayabusa. One (TS) just had a makeover so it seems like two different cars.

Its great to dig up a 2 year old thread and see such an interesting discussion!

As most people know this car now belongs to Gautam Singhania. Mumbai folks will get a chance to see it at the next Supercar rally on the 23rd Jan.

I had the pleasure of spending some quality time with this gorgeous thing a few days back.

Probably the most defining feature of the 348

Notice the slats at the rear, covering the rear tail-lights

The engine is far forward, and placed very low

Yep, Tubistyle exhaust! Notice the covered rear tail-lights once again. Sexy.

Rear diff. (The "t" in 348 ts signifies the transverse gearbox layout)

Check out the gearshift

Just looking at this steering wheel gives you a feel of how communicative it might be

B.E.A.U.T.I.F.U.L!! You're one lucky guy Rehaan to visit GS' garage. Kudos to GS for keeping this in such a pristine condition. Curious to know why only one-sided air vent on the bumper?

From GS' entire garage, my pick would be the 348 (yup, even over the newer Italians ). There's something really special about the 348's timeless design....the classic "gated" Ferrari gearshift, V8 derived from the 288 GTO (the exact car behind my username), Testarossa-like side air intakes & 5 spoke wheels. Don't even get me started on the pop-up headlamps and Ferrari-blood-red colour.

Without doubt the best, classiest car in the garage.

Its cars like this one & the F50 that makes me keep my user-handle & my email address from being changed. Absolutely brilliant pics Rehaan. Great job!

I'll surely be there for the Supercar show just to see this beauty.

+1

By far the most beautiful car in his garage right now. There was something magical abou the V8 Ferraris right from the 308 to the magical 355. All those are timeless design and still hold their own amonst the modern 430s and the likes. Even to this day I feel sad for pop up lights going to the grave.

See this car stand next to its more modern comtemporaries at the upcoming Supercar Show and you'll know what I mean. Stunning !!

Brownie points also to GS for keeping it in pristine condition. I can just feel that steering wheel talking to me " Come drive me !!" Phew

Call me dumb but I would take this anyday day over that orange gallardo,or even the ariel atom.The pictures above make me weak in my knees. Thanks for the pictures sir.You really made my day .Classic fezza's are unmatchable.In my books none of today's ferraris can even touch them.

Now that's the real deal right there. Absolutely gorgeous, and my pick of the lot. Love those Testarossa-esq intake slats, the classic dog-leg 5-on-the-floor H-Gater, and those pop-up-lights. The deep-ish dish wheels give it that extra oomph too. Not to mention the colour and those slats that run over the rear-lights, it just reeks of beauty and soul!

Fantastic pictures Rehaan!

Thats an absolute beauty to watch. The 288, 348 and 355 are all those gorgeous machines that gave Ferrari the name its famous for. Absolute treat to watch. Would love to hear one of those flat out in a tunnel. I so wish !!

Very nice pics indeed. The air inlets seem to have a lot of dust on it or is it just the lighting

Could you post some pics of a wide view of the cockpit.
