We are proud to be able to offer this very special 348. One of only 8 right hand drive cars, 50 in total. Much like the F40, the 348 GTC uses a Kevlar/carbonfibre composite to save weight. You can see it in the chunky weave of the sills and seats, and feel it in the weight of the doors. The front and rear bumpers are made of the materials too, while the wider, 18in polished alloys are also lighter than the standard car?s 17in items. It all adds up to a huge 190kg saving over the standard 348 GTB, which, when combined with the later 320bhp version of the standard car?s 3.4-litre V8 engine, results in a 348 with a power-to-weight ratio on a par with its successor, the F355. The springs and dampers are firmer than the regular 348?s, and the gear-linkage uses a rod rather than cables, so the shift action should feel more connected and precise. Performance claims are hard to come by (even Ferrari?s own website leaves blanks), but it?s safe to say the Competizione would trump the standard 348?s 0-62mph time of 5.4sec, though it?s unlikely its top speed is different to the standard 348?s claimed 175mph.
