When you think of performance vehicles, Ferrari is a manufacturer that is most always at the top of anyone’s list. The 1992 Ferrari 348 ts features a 2-door targa style body with rear wheel drive and a 5 speed manual transmission. This baby accelerates from 0-60 in 5.6 seconds and from 0-100 in just under 6 seconds. The 348 ts achieves a top rated speed of 170 mph. This is a blistering pace for a modern sports car.

Measuring in at 166 inches from front to rear the Ferrari 348 ts has a wheelbase of 96.5 inches. It is rated with an estimated driving distance of 415 miles per tank. Though not rated as a fuel efficiency car, this machine would be a valuable asset to any automobile collection.

Featuring a Ferrari Dino V8 Tipo F19 engine with indirect injection and natural aspiration, the 348 maximizes performance. The Bosch Motronic 2.5 DOHC helps to attain a 296 HP rating with 238 ft-pd of torque. When you are behind the wheel, you can feel the power surging through.

With a longitudinal placement, the engine, transmission, and rear suspension were contained in a tube that is removable and sports a rear sub-frame. Other innovative additions to the Ferrari 348 include a centrally located fuel tank, double-redundant anti-lock breaks, and optional traction control.
