    Interesting choice. While I applaud the red, that is the later red that started coming in the 355. The 348s red was really red.

    Hope that was a purposeful decision! Either way it does look great,

    What was the car originally? Grey or red inside?

    The original color was grey . . . and yes, I purposefully chose that color because my first Ferrari was a 308 GTSi with the exact same color combination.

    The true red does looks great on a white or black 348, but the grigio screams for the darker (IMO).

    That 308 is the same color combo as my 400i. :) The true red.

    That does look really good, can't wait to see it with the seats. That 308 was a great looking ride as well.

    No sir . . . I removed all the interior parts, bought a hide of leather specifically for Ferraris from an automotive upholstery shop, and had everything recovered.

    What happened to the grey take off leather? Was it cut up to make the patterns for the new seats?

    My seat bottoms are torn, and could use a re-cover. It's easy enough to do a re-dye on a take off hide...

    Yours is what I like to call lipstick red and has more of a gloss finish to the leather where mine has more of a satin almost flat finish or sheen.

    Guess my next step is to get the matching carpet thanks for your post!

    I wouldn't necessarily get the red carpets. Ferrari offered both. Example, here is a red interior with black carpets. Lower door panel carpets are black too.

    Both look great imho.

    Out of sheer curiosity, was this the LBI car that was for sale?

    Yes sir it was the LBI car . . . They had it on consignment and the owner finally agreed to my terms for the 348 :)

    Ferrari Hot Spur Red Leather was the color used for my 1990 348TB.
