The managing director of Manit Centermax Co., Ltd on Thepkrasattri Road, Ae bought his car five years ago because of its power.
F348 have two colours – red and yellow – but Ae choose the yellow one because it is more noticeable when he drives during the night.
“I like the sound of the exhaust, it shows the strength of the car,’’ he smiled.
The 348 was introduced to Britain in 1989 as a replacement for the 328. It is a mid-engine, rear wheel drive and two seat sport car.
Up on power, the 348 had a 3.4 litre V8 engine producing 300 horsepower with five manual gears.
Like all other Ferrari cars, F348 is known for its great quality and high-tech design.
