1990 Ferrari 348 Challenge Car

Here is a 2 owner 1990 Ferrari 348 Challenge Car for sale in Miami, Florida.   This is a factory challenge car that was reportedly raced in the World Finals Mugello World Cup in Italy in 1994 and had 2 podium finishes at Morosso Motorsports Park in Florida.  This car was campaigned from 1994 to 1996  by Col Carlson.   It comes out of the Evergreen Historic Automobile Collection.   It has also received the Cavallino Platinum Concours Award.    The original seats, air condition, and seat belts were put back into the car for street use.  It also comes iwth the OMP 348 Challenge racing seats , seat blets and OMP roll cage.

In 1993, the Dutch Ferrari Club created the “348 Challenge” for owners of this model, and other Ferrari Clubs quickly followed suit. Owners could purchase special safety equipment packages and go racing against other mechanically-identical, street-legal cars. 59 cars participated in the final 1993 contest at Mugello, Italy, and the single-model race idea expanded to Western Europe, Japan, and the United States the following year. The series continued until the model was replaced by the 355.

This Ferrari 348 TS Challenge was fitted with a “Challenge Kit” in 1993 and proved very competitive in the hands of its original owner, Kurt Carlson of Rockport, Illinois, from 1994 through 1996. Carlson drove this car at many Challenge series events, including the 1994 World Final at Mugello. He twice scored podium finishes at the former Moroso Motorsports Park in Florida. Registered to the Meredith Alice Carlson Trust, it was awarded a Platinum Concours trophy at Cavallino. This car was acquired in 2012 by the Evergreen Historic Automobile Collection in Lebanon, Missouri, and placed on static display. It was last fully serviced in 2010, but re-commissioned with new fluids in November 2016 and has been driven fewer than 10 miles since. Its odometer indicates a total of 27,155 mile, and is described as in very good original condition with all systems working properly.

Liveried in Ferrari Red over tan leather, it is supplied with its original seats, factory air conditioning, and seat belts, which were put back in the car for street use. It includes its tool roll, original racing seats, competition belts and roll cage. Only a few hundred 348s ever saw a race track; this example would be welcomed at any Ferrari club track event or Concours.
 
Last major was performed in 2011 and has only been stored inside a museum since then. Car performs flawlessly, engine starts first turn over with no valve train noise or smoke pulls nicely through all the gears. Transmission shifts through all the gears as it should and clutch is in great shape. All electric components work, AC blows cold.
