Footnotes

  • Ferrari’s line of highly successful V8-engined road cars began with the 308GT4 of 1973. Originally badged as a Dino, the all-new 308GT4 2+2 took over from the preceding Dino V6. The newcomer’s wedge-shaped styling - by Bertone rather than the customary Pininfarina - was not universally well received, but the performance of the amidships-mounted double-overhead-camshaft 3-litre V8 certainly was, and a new two-seater car using a dry-sumped version of the same power unit debuted at the Paris Salon in 1975. Built on a shorter wheelbase, the stunningly beautiful 308GTB marked a welcome return to Pininfarina styling.
    Subsequently updated with four-valves per cylinder, the 308 was superseded by the mechanically similar but larger engined 328GTB in 1985. By increasing both bore and stroke, the quattrovalvole engine’s capacity was raised to 3,186cc which, together with a higher compression ratio, revised pistons and improved Marelli engine management system, lifted maximum power to 270bhp at 7,000rpm. Top speed was raised to within a whisker of 160mph with the sprint to 60mph covered in 5.5 seconds. On the outside, the addition of Testarossa-style moulded bumpers, a deeper rear valance and an unobtrusive roof spoiler could not disguise its underlying beauty. ‘If the sublime purity of the original shape has been corrupted, its striking appearance has not,’ observed Motor magazine. ‘In our book, this is still the most beautiful of all contemporary exotics - a gorgeous looking car.’
    This right-hand drive 328GTS Targa convertible was purchased from marque specialists DK Engineering in November 2005 and currently displays a total of only 26,143 miles on the odometer. Finished in rosso corsa with cream leather interior, the car is described as in generally good condition, the engine registering good oil pressure, its most recent service having been carried out in March 2008. Boasting the appropriate registration mark ‘E8 GTS’, this classic Ferrari V8-engine sports car is offered with partial service history, MoT to 12th December 2008 and Swansea V5 registration document.
