    1994 348 Challenge TB Turbo
    Challenge Car number 10 of 32
    25,440 miles
    Complete with books and tools
    609 wheel horsepower (700 crank/rated horsepower)
    Chassis Number 98498

    This 348 Challenge is in immaculate condition inside and out. It has many of the factory Challenge options that were available from Ferrari, including: Speedline wheels, roll cage, racing harnesses, fire extinguisher, plexiglass rear window and fog light covers, vented undertrays, suspension upgrades, freer flowing exhaust, carbon fiber seats, and lightweight bumpers.

    This 348 Challenge was built to be driven and enjoyed with reliability. This classic Ferrari has 700 crank horsepower, a gated 6 speed manual transmission and a modern traction control system to efficiently put power to the ground. In other words, this 348 makes as much power as an Aventador, weighs half as much and is able to use the power.

    There was no expense spared for the build and the Ferrari has over $250,000 invested. The aftermarket and custom parts are made to look like factory pieces to the untrained eye. Further, the 348 is comprised of many rare Ferrari parts with meticulous details that are appreciated by true aficionados.

    Steve Maxwell Exotic Car Service completely stripped, restored and built the 348 Challenge after its racing career, including the Ferrari Challenge series, had ended. An extensive history of the work completed is included with the 348. It has recently received service, including: valve adjustment, new cam belt and new clutch. The 348 is complete with factory Challenge car cover, books and tools.

    This 348 Challenge was on the cover of Forza Magazine, featured in European Car Magazine, Matt Farah’s The Smoking Tire program and countless automotive blogs. It is the most well-known 348 in modern culture. This is the ultimate driver’s Ferrari which you can take on a leisurely drive, to a car show, a cross-country road-trip or merely run away from modern exotics.

    Asking price of $139,000

    When I saw Farrah's review on this I thought it was one of the coolest cars out there. Top rate build and I love the detail put in to give the OEM look. GLWS!

    One of a kind. Well worth the price. Irreplaceable. Truly an amazing package. GLWS. I'd almost buy it to just to copy everything that makes this such an amazing car. We 348/355 "threaders" know about this car and its stable mate. We all aspire to adopt some of the technology that makes this engine such a beast.

    Amazing!! I so want that car!!!!

    Interested in any trades - I have a F512M or a 997.1 GT3RS to offer. Both are turbo-less and could use some boost :)

    That is just major, major bad ass. Love the video, well written and delivered. Little phrases stood out, like the yeah *****, I have a 348. And the one about the three honks and flame salute!

    Has to be the baddest 348 ever built, other than the Enzo test mule, and that was something different all together.

    Just asking, does it have air conditioning? Did you save all the old parts?
