This is a killer looking machine! Wish I could hear it roar!

Please put in more pictures. The more the better!

This has been discussed earlier in the thread -- i think it might be for the oil cooler or something similar.

I hope its ME! That 355 is one of the cars that really kick-started my obsession with cars. Mostly thanks to the Tubis, i wonder if they sound just the same...

Notice the aftermarket HMSL? Thats probably because the slats on the brake-lights block them out when someone in a higher vehicle (or motorbike) is following too close for comfort. (Probably a common occurrence with this car!)

Aaaaahhhhhh......... I had a crisis as Jeremy Clarkson would say!

I would just love to slam that gearshift through the gate! I've always wanted to do that! GS is one lucky person!

What is HMSL?

HMSL = High Mounted Stop Light

FYI, though not relevant to the 348 - a 3rd stop light has been a requirement on all new cars sold in India since around 8 years now.

great pictures here, besides GS deserving credit for keeping her this well, the previous owner, had maintained this beauty really well, shes probably seen very little sunshine. As she was bought by GS fairly recently..

This reply may be a decade too late, but this car is still in as good a shape today. Credit to GHS & his team of mechanics who keeps it in top running condition. Although seen maybe once or twice a year, if that, I can confirm that even in 2021 this stunning Prancing Horse gallops like a dream.

Hope to see more of this car at upcoming events and at the Supercar Club Garage thatís newly opened in Thane.
