The Ferrari 308

Introduced at the Paris Salon in 1975, the stunningly beautiful 308GTB - Ferrari's second V8-engined road car - marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed 308GT4 that had launched this highly successful series in 1973. Badged as a 'proper' Ferrari rather than a Dino, the 308GTB had changed little mechanically apart from a reduction in both wheelbase and weight, retaining its predecessor's underpinnings and transversely mounted 3-liter quad-cam engine that now featured dry-sump lubrication. Produced initially with fiberglass bodywork - the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari - the Scaglietti-built 308GTB used steel after April 1977, while further developments included the introduction of an open-top GTS version with Targa-style removable roof, the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection as on this example.

The Motorcar Offered

This Rosso Corsa over black leather 308 is a well preserved and honestly presented example of the car made famous by Tom Selleck's character Thomas Magnum in the 1980s TV series Magnum, P.I. Showing about 61,000 miles from new, the evidence of this example's charmed life is clear. The interior is well preserved and original, right down to the original Alpine AM/FM/Cassette head unit and switch controlled power antennae. Never modified, the engine bay and exterior look just as the car would have appeared when the car was sitting in the showroom in 1980. Some paint work appears to have been done in the last 30 years, but it looks to have been done in the interest of cosmetics alone.

As a desirable Spider model it has the detachable targa roof for open top motoring. These early Bosch CSi fuel injection cars are known for their excellent throttle response and drivability. Today it is getting increasingly difficult to find these cars in unmodified condition. This example remains as close as it could to how it left Maranello.

An icon of the 1980s, the classically outfitted Ferrari is one of the most economical ways to join the legion of Prancing Horse tifosi.
