Première tentative de Ferrari pour construire une voiture adaptée à tous les marchés internationaux, la Mondial 8 utilisait le V8 3 litres quatre arbres de la 308 GT4, monté dans une version allongée du châssis de cette dernière. Transmission et suspensions restaient à peu près identiques avec la boîte transaxle à cinq rapports et une suspension indépendante aux quatre roues. Considérée par certains comme moins sportive que les autres Ferrari, la Mondial dépassait quand même les 225 km/h et sa tenue de route et son confort autorisaient les longs voyages. Elle était aussi l'une des première Ferrari à bénéficier d'un traitement anticorrosion au zinc pour ses panneaux de carrosserie. Considérablement plus habitable que les premières 2+2, la Mondial à carrosserie Pininfarina était décrite par le magazine Car comme « ce qu'on peut faire de plus proche d'une supercar en termes de transport familial ». Les différentes évolutions furent un vrai cabriolet (pas de type Targa), l'adoption du moteur QV (Quattro Valvole, quatre soupapes par cylindre) plus puissant en 1982 et la cylindrée portée à 3, 2 litres en 1985.

Vendue neuve en Belgique et autrefois intégrée dans la collection Maat en Hollande, cette Quattrovalvole fut commandée en Nero Carbonio (noir carbone) avec intérieur en cuir fauve, sa livrée d'aujourd'hui. Le compteur affiche 65 611 km et la QV est décrite comme en bon état général et d'origine, à l'exception de sa peinture refaite (en 2011). La documentation fournie comprend les papiers d'immatriculation hollandais et la facture de vente. Sans conteste la plus pratique et la facile à vivre de toutes les Ferrari.

1984 Ferrari Mondial Qv Coupé
Chassis no. ZFFLD14B000050997

Ferrari's first effort at building a car suitable for markets throughout the world, the Mondial 8 deployed the 308GT4's 3.0-litre quad-cam V8 engine in a lengthened version of the latter's chassis. Transmission and running gear remained much the same, with five-speed transaxle and independent suspension all round. Although reckoned by some to be less sporting than other Ferraris, the Mondial was still good for 225km/h-plus and its ride quality and comfort scored over long distances. The Mondial was also one of the first Ferraris to benefit from zinc anti-corrosion coating of its steel panels. Considerably roomier than previous Ferrari 2+2s, the Pininfarina-styled Mondial has been described by Car magazine as, 'the closest you'll get to supercar family transport.' Developments included a proper (non-Targa) Cabriolet, the introduction of a more-powerful 'Qv' (Quattro-valvole: four-valves-per-cylinder) engine in 1982 and enlargement to 3.2 litres for 1985.

Sold new in Belgium and previously forming part of the Maat Collection in the Netherlands, this Quattrovalvole was delivered finished in Nero Carbonio with tan leather interior, its livery today. The odometer reading is 65,611 kilometres and the Qv is described as in generally good condition and mainly original except for a repaint (in 2001). Accompanying documentation consists of Netherlands registration papers and bills of sale. Arguably the most practical and easy-to-live-with of all Ferraris.
