It's now later and a pic is useless without a story. Come on Ash, spill the beans, have you just invested in a depreciating asset?
If so, great news and congrats.  :thumbsup:

Haha - let's just say that after driving about the best example of a 348 that exists, I definitely won't be getting one.

OUCH!

but why?

If they were $80k, would it help?

or is it a "just don't ever want one regardless of price" type thing...

Was it leaking oil?

Not at all - after having also driven an Esprit and NSX recently - which are on-paper contemporary rivals, the 348 is a joke, agricultural and outclassed in every way, it would have to be less than half the price of either of the others before I'd consider it.

DAMN, you mean to say you were'nt blinded by the red mist?

Once you've driven an Esprit... your search for a " near perfect as you'll ever get"  handling car has ended. It simply doesn't get any better does it?

Nope - was really looking forward to driving it, but the power and handling and seating position and control just left me feeling... meh, the sound was nice - but also not as good as I was hoping.  This car is as near brand-new and perfect as you'll see, but it still felt like a parts-bin special compared to the NSX and Esprit which are phenomenally well built and pure pleasure to drive.

Feels 30 - really, it felt no more modern than my X's, both NSX and Esprit are similar vintage but still feel modern - apart from the NSX's TCS which feel little more than like the whole car switches off every now and then. :p

You make something idiotproof, they'll make a better idiot.
