Can someone do me a favour please?

Im about to buy a 348 and need to know how it would fit into a container. If someone has some spare time, could you please measure the widest part of the car? with the mirrors in normal position and also with the mirrors bent in.

Many thanks for this.

Hi Adam,

My car is too far away at the moment to measure it, but it will fit in a container without any problems.

I have included a pic of mine in its box when I had it shipped to me, hope it helps.

Hi, Adam;

With the mirrors folded in, the widest part of the car is at the front of the rear wheel arches. This is given as 1894mm, or 74.6".

With the mirrors folded out, they bring the total width of the car to just about exactly 77", according to my measurements out in the driveway using a carpenter's level to establish a spot on the ground on each side.

When the mirrors are folded in, they are well inside the width of the doors.

Height is 1170mm or 46"
Length is 4230mm or 166.5"
Ground clearance is 4.9"

Good luck with the new car!
