Default Pristine Red Ferrari 348 spotted in Bombay! EDIT: Tons of Pics on Pg4 & 5!

Saw this beautiful red Ferrari 348 at the Taj Lands end (Bandra) today. This car was one of the cleanest and most impeccably maintained supercars I have seen in India. It had a delhi registration number and apparently belongs to someone from the travel industry.

Awesome find GTO. I've never seen this one before. Looks mint and those alloys are killer.

Well, for our resident Ferrari photographer, here are some more detailed shots. One of my staff members took the pictures from her camera phone so dont worry too much about the quality.

There are quite a few of them in India. And some of them are in Delhi.

I feel like there might be a chance that this is the same 348TS that has been around for a while, just with new wheels ... ?

I always loved the 348, and it was such a modern looking design, but i felt the only thing that made it look a bit dated were the wheels, so im glad theyve been changed on this specimen!

ps - here are some pics of the other TS - http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/super-...e-carrera.html

Well Pristine it is.

However I had seen pics of a 328 GTS in some indian automag (to provide its evidence of that being present in India and I have seen that model in person in UK). That car to me is one of the best looking Ferrari's ever manufactured.

348 seemed more like a marriage of the Testarossa (512) with the 328 and an evolution of the 355 coming up. Not to mention that individually all the cars were pretty neat. Anyway, these are my views only, so no offense meant to anyone (In anycase the 348 is quite goodlooking)

Agreed; the 348 was just so gorgeous looking in person. Two decades down the line and it still didnt look like an outdated sportscar. I add again - This car was clean enough to pass as a showroom piece. That added to its personality.

A true beauty... one of the best looking car on the planet.
It looks like it has been newly painted and fitted with new leather seats etc, or maybe not...it just look too good to be kept in suchhhh a good condition :P
