Previously owned by Ferrari SpA
Retained by Ferrari for promotional use of the Challenge series


Rather than finding its way to the racetrack in the hands of a privateer within the Challenge series, chassis number 94984 was retained by Ferrari until 1997. It remained in their use as it functioned as essentially the press car for the Challenge series, used to help market the series (and the car itself) to members of the media and any interested clients that would drop by the factory. Interestingly enough, the car can still be seen today on Ferrari’s own website, under the page for the 348 Challenge, and the vehicle retains its original Modena registration plates.

The car’s history with Ferrari is confirmed by not only its accompanying Estratto Cronologico, but also the car’s warranty manual, where Ferrari SpA is clearly listed as the first owner. The 348 Challenge cars are perhaps the most interesting and significant model of the 348 family and represent an important piece of Ferrari history as the very first Challenge car and the first of a great line of Challenge series models. This example, currently with an owner in Monaco after having spent its whole life in Italy, has a particularly fascinating story.

I wondered if any of the board users would like to estimate what this car might sell for. I see 120k -140k has been mentioned elsewhere. Just a bit of fun?

Could also be possible, close to 200 or over, why not...
Looking at the estimate the car will sell and then its the new standard for a very good 348 CH
