The Ferrari 308

Ferrari's line of highly successful V8-engined road cars began with the 308 GT4 of 1973. Badged as a 'Di-no', the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 superseded the preceding Dino V6. The newcomer's wedge-shaped styling - by Bertone rather than the customary Pininfarina - was not universally well received but there were no complaints about the performance of the 3.0-liter quad-cam V8 engine, which was carried over to its successor.

Introduced at the Paris Auto Salon in 1975, the contemporary styled 308 GTB - Ferrari's second V8 road car - marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed 308 GT4. Badged as a 'proper' Ferrari rather than a Dino, the 308 GTB had changed little mechanically apart from a reduction in both wheelbase and weight, retaining its predecessor's underpinnings and transversely mounted engine that now featured dry-sump lubrication. In road tune this superbly engineered power unit produced 255bhp, an out-put good enough to propel the 308 GTB to a top speed of over 150mph.

Produced initially with fiberglass bodywork (the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari) the Scaglietti-built 308 GTB used steel after April 1977. Further developments included the introduction of an open-top GTS version with Targa-style removable roof and, later on, the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection. An exhilarating driver's car and a Ferrari purist's delight, the 308 GTSi and its many derivatives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello, with over 12,000 sold.


The Motorcar Offered

This beautifully presented 308 GTSi was delivered on September 22nd, 1981 through Yonge Steeles Motors in Toronto, Canada. Finished in the iconic combination of Rosso Corsa over a tan leather interior, this striking Targa was further specified with a rare European specification chin spoiler.

Of all the 308 GTSi's extant, this particular example has had one of the most cosseted existences of them all. With just 3,112 kilometers on the odometer at the time of cataloging, this ultra-low mileage Ferrari has a known history from the day it was delivered, with just two attentive owners since new. The overall condition of this 35-year old Ferrari speaks to just how well it has been cared for, with a well-sorted interior and glistening paintwork on its Pininfarina-penned body. Under the stewardship of the second owner, the car underwent a major service in January of 2015, which included replacing the timing belts and rebuilding the suspension system, along with a painstaking detailing of this Italian sports car, including the undercarriage. This 308, therefore, is well sorted and in remarkable original condition throughout.

Accompanying this iconic V8 Ferrari is the owner's manual, leather pouch, keys, toolkit and jack, along with a comprehensive history file, photo album and a bespoke coffee table book made for this particular Ferrari. Given its incredibly low mileage, known history since new, and overall condition, this 308 GTSi is a one of the very best examples around of Ferrari's 308 models.
