    Production figures i have are; Source Maranello Sales

    Total factory production-
    348 TB= 2895 - RHD UK =130
    348 TS= 4230 - RHD UK =261
    348 Spider= 1090 - RHD UK =68
    348 GTB= 252 - RHD Uk =14
    348 GTS= 137 - RHD UK =15
    348 GTC= 50 - RHD UK = 8


    355 B= 4915 - RHD UK = 496
    355 GTS= 2577 - RHD UK = 434
    355 Spider= 3714 - RHD UK = 454

    Just for the 12 cylinder boys , here are your figures;

    TR = 7177 - UK RHD = 438
    512 TR = 2280 - UK RHD = 50[30 ABS]
    512 M = 500 - UK RHD = 41

    456 GT = 1936[402 auto] UK RHD = 141 [61 auto]

    ferrari's most popular car ever made is the testarossa with the 355b second but 2262 less of them made and the three rare'st are the 348 gtb gts gtc only ever seen one rhd gtc and it was at stanford hall the 355 figires do shock me as i would of thought the 355gts was the most popular as they made more 348ts than tb any body got the 360 numbers ?????



    so with these offical ferrari figures this means the most popular ferrari is a rear engined 12 cylinder ferrari

    As the 355B/GTS/Spider all happen to have the same engine/drivetrain you need to add the figures together which totals 11206

    Do the same for TR/512TR/512M and total is 9957

    So with these offical ferrari figures this means the most popular ferrari is a rear engined 8 cylinder ferrari

    yes i agree but a 355 gts is a different car to a 355 gtb and spyder there is 3 different models in the 335 range of models and 6 different models of the 348 in the range so the most popular car that ferrari made is still a testarossa so stuff that in your pipe and smoke it

    They're both mid-engined, gents.

    I'm pretty sure that only the Germans persist in sticking their engines in the rear.

    A further surprise is the proportion of GTS 355s built in RHD.

    Never thought I'd see the day where we big up which model had the *most* made :)

    How come you want to get rid of your "most poular ferrari made" and get one of the much less popular 360 CS cars ?

    If you wanna get more specific on the 355, you have the Later Fiorino (spelling?) and ofcourse the 355 Challenge cars - anyone got figures for these??

    I looked at a Challenge car that had not been converted to 'full - on' race car status, when I was buying a 355. Not sure what this hybrid really was classed as, but it was badged as Challenge, but looked just like a berlinetta.

    I don't have 355 Challenge build numbers to hand, but there were 104 355 Spider Fioranos. 100 numbered (x of 100) for the US, 3 for Europe and 1 went to South Africa.
