Default Pics: Red Ferrari 348 at the Hilton Mumbai (& Yellow 348gts spotted in Delhi)

Was out in the night couple of nights ago. Took a spin near the Hilton Towers and this Ferrari 348 was parked in the driveway. Here are the pics. Front bumper scraped but very well maintained car

Hey bikefreak

If this was a 348ts well then in that case i know who it belongs to. Then its also the same car spotted by TBHP members on the Mumbai Pune expressway along with a Porsche.

EDIT : Just noticed that this indeed is a hard top 348 also, the prancing horse decals are missing from the front as well as rear grille......the one i know of is a removable top. So this is not the car i know of.

Cheers!!!

Cheers!!!

Wrong. It's a 348tb.
For those who don't know, what "tb" and "ts" stand for, the 348 was available in closed berlinetta form (tb) or to a targa topped spider specification (ts).

Hey Dippy,

Sweet pics. Not very often do you get to see a Ferrari with tinted glass! Believe me, makes a huge difference!

Speed_Demon82, the TS you speak of clearly says "348TS" in silver and red on the back.
And as for the vent only on one side, it might be for an oil cooler. (for eg the evo6 has a vent on just one side that is for the oil cooler)
