    I recall that was a factory 348 concept back in day that never saw the light of day if my memory serves me correctly.

    According to this french website it was part of the F121 project.

    F121 sounds plausible. There are other corroborating publications out there which reference the factory development of a 348 iteration intended as a ~400hp V8 twin turbo "sport" model, with an F40-esque rear wing treatment and tail lamp group, but never seeing the light of day, obviously. The one coming to mind was an article which referenced the interviewee noting a prototype 348 schematic or rendering posted on the walls somewhere in the bowels of the engineering back rooms at Maranello some years after production of the model had ended, with the factory personnel describing it as the above and with some affection for the project which never achieved fruition. I believe the article subject had then proceeded to build a modified 348 as a tribute to that rendering years later.
