    I see it has an early tool kit. The wrong tools for this car considering the year ??? Great car though.

    "This is a very rare Ferrari, more scarce than any other Ferrari homologation special, including the F40, F50 and 288 GTO..."

    Based on their estimated price range (£120,000 - £150,000 = $155k - $194k), seems like a great value for a collector.

    The link doesn't work for me (so far). But if it's only a "commemorative" car then why all of this?

    Weight reduction was the key to the performance of this ultimate 348 variant. Seats are F40 type Kevlar/carbon fibre racing buckets, doors, sills, front and rear bumpers are also composite and the wheels are unique 18” split-rim Speedline items, hiding the 15-inch F40 ventilated Brembo discs and F40 half shafts. Inside, the interior was stripped and an FIA roll-cage was installed. The upholstery was replaced by lightweight fabric and the side and rear windows were replaced by Lexan counterparts. The total weight saving is often quoted as a remarkable 190kg over a standard 348. Complementing the improved power to weight ratio are more focused adjustable springs & dampers enabling a revised suspension set up and a rod–connected gearshift.

    Clubscuderia website looks to be down for maintenance, when it's back up its worth the read and all will be there. I don't know when that is, i have no input in the process.
    Your web link is to a non official Ferrari site, albeit labeled as the "Official Ferrari Magazine" - as so many have said, so much misinformation out there.

    Your saying that Ferrari.com is not Ferrari? Did you read the fine print at the bottom of the page? ;)
