    Looking for a Ferrari 348 or Testarossa replica

    Just like the subject line says. I'm looking for either one of those cars. I know theres some Testarossas out there, but has anybody heard of a 348? Im new to this game so maybe some of you can help me out.
    I live in Vancouver, so anywhere in BC or Alberta would be easy to get to.

    thanks

    To the best of my knowledge there hasnít been a 348 replica produced. However, you could modify a 355 kit to look like a 348. You could achieve the look by changing the 355 rear tail light panel to the grill type used on the testarossa, change the shape of the side vents slightly to make them a little more squared off at the rear of the doors, add on the side strakes and change the front bumper to more of a 512TR style which is similar to that of the 348.

    what are you looking to spend? I see mint condition F348's for 40 to 50K on ebay. I started doing the math and after you have 40K in a rep you could buy one that might need some work for less but thats just my opinion of the ferrari's.

    It is true that you can buy a 348 Ferrari for around $40 - $50K however you need to keep in mind that you will also have to register, insure and do maintenance on it All of which are very expensive.

    The Mirage kit was initially a 348 replica then upgraded to a 355. The differences are the lower doors, door pushers, rocker panels, front bumper, rear deck lid, rear bumper, tail lights, hood vent intake (same hood as a 355 different vent) and various grill, door strikes and front parking light parts. I would venture to say that you could get the parts you need from Jim Carpenter in Phoenix, AZ to build your 348.

    If you're not confused, you're not paying attention.

    I have a mirage kit, maybe we could work together to convert it to a 348! Who knows it could be done.
