FOR SALE: 1994 348 "Factory Challenge" Car

Post by enzo4re » Tue 2. Jan 2018, 17:50

1994 Ferrari 348 tb Challenge # 098791- Grigio Met. with red interior (the only 348CH in this color)
22,400 miles

This is #26 of 32 “Factory Challenge” Ferrari 348 tbs, and is in excellent mechanical condition, having had an engine-out major service completed in April, 2017 by renowned Ferrari specialist, Tim Stanford. Cosmetics are “race car excellent”, with shiny, mostly original paint and straight body with even panel gaps (race livery, including sponsor decals, intact)- one of the benefits of having never sustained any major crash damage! Original OMP “348 Challenge” carbon-kevlar seats reupholstered in red fabric with proper embroidered logos.

Yes, although it is a bit of a “hair shirt”, I’ve driven this car numerous times to/from track days at PBIR, Sebring and Homestead without any issues- other than the noise (from the unsilenced Challenge exhaust) and heat (no a/c, of course, although I do have the components stored if one were inclined to re-install)!

This was a race car since new, having competed in the Ferrari Challenge series in 1994 and 1995 on the Lake Forest Sportscars team, and retains its full Challenge race equipment (including Speedline magnesium Challenge wheels- 8”x18” front, 10”x18” rear), with the following being the only deviations from “as raced” spec:
(1) Upgraded Brembo big brake rotors and calipers
(2) Roll cage side impact bar removed (left in the garage, as I drive this car to/from the track and value ease of ingress/egress)
(3) Toyo R888 “R Compound” race tires substituted for the original Pirelli D3 slicks- again, I drive to/from the track, so full slicks are too risky)
(4) Window net removed (again, left in the garage, as I drive this car to/from the track)

In addition to the items noted above as being stored in the garage, the car also comes with the following spares:
(1) Odyssey race battery
(2) OMP fire bottle
(3) Set of beautiful Fikse wheels, excellent condition (8”x18” front, 10”x18” rear), mounted with Goodyear Eagle F1 tires (old, but with lots of tread)

Includes complete factory tool kit (even the tire inflator bottle is there), leather binder with all books except service booklet, red Ferrari car cover, and a 348 Parts Manual.

Car comes with complete ownership and service history from “Day 1” in a 3-ring binder (including the original window sticker and Warranty Card branded “CHALLENGE”), as well as some, but not all, race history. This is not my first Challenge car, but it has certainly been the best, both mechanically and cosmetically. Unfortunately, age and worsening orthopedic issues dictate that it go to someone who will be able to get more use from it, while preserving a piece of Ferrari Challenge history.

The car is located in Florida, and will be on-track on Thursday during the Cavallino Classic, and otherwise available that weekend if you’d like to see it. Thanks.

Price: $175,000 (Ferrari street car trades of comparable value considered- 3-pedal 430?).
