1993 Ferrari 348 GTB Specifications
About 1993 Ferrari 348 GTB
The 348 was the star of the European auto shows when it was first presented in 1989, and it remained in production until 1995 with continuous improvements. At the Frankfurt Auto Show in September 1989, the Ferrari 348 made its premiere and was named "Best in Show." It was Enzo Ferrari's last V8 mid-engine vehicle to be created before he passed away. Additionally, it is the final analog Ferrari. A dry-sump oil system was also used in the 348 engine to avoid oil starvation at high speeds and through challenging corners.
The 348 is rather light, weighing only 1370 kilos. Also contributing to the lack of bulk are the absence of airbags and power steering (given the current Takata airbag fiasco, a good thing).
This device is analog in nature.
The electronics are strategically aimed at critical components like the dual Bosch engine processors and ABS. A self-diagnostic air conditioning system was present, for sure. However, there is a big benefit to not having current technology: exceptional durability and no pricey parts to fry, repair, or maintain.
When you turn on a 348, the sound is the first thing you hear, not unnecessary lights, buttons, or gadgetry. The unusual Formula 1-inspired symphony that even Ludwig Van would have heard in his latter years (and approved of!) replaces the burbling of Detroit in this composition. From about 4000 rpm until the redline at 7500 rpm, the engine just sings at a pitch that only a Ferrari can achieve.
