THE 308 GTB QUATTROVALVOLE

The 308 GTB was the first model in Ferrari's long and popular line of mid-engine V8 sports cars, continuing through the current 458 Italia. The 308 was introduced in 1975 at the Paris Auto Salon as a replacement to the Dino 246 and marked a shift in Ferrari's production from low volume models and coachbuilt cars to models with much wider market appeal. Their striking looks, good performance, and relative affordability made the 308 an outstanding success, with 12,004 examples sold over its 10-year production run. The 308 quickly became an icon, partly because of a 308 GTS that was the car of choice on a popular TV show, Magnum, P.I, a choice that inextricably linked the 308 to 1970s and '80s popular culture.

In 1980, in an effort to reduce emissions, the four twin-choke Weber carburetors were replaced with a Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection system with the introduction of the 308 GTBi. While successful at reducing emissions, this shift dealt a heady blow to the performance of the 308- reducing the output of the alloy V8 from 237 to 202 horsepower on US versions. Just 2 years later, the 308 GTBi was replaced with the ultimate 308- the Quattrovalvole. Searching for a way to regain the power lost on the fuel-injected cars while maintaining their lower emissions and smoother power band, Ferrari developed the Quattrovalvole- a revised engine with four valves per cylinder. This new free-breathing V8 developed nearly the same horsepower as the carbureted car with improved power delivery.


THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This 308 GTB Quattrovalvole, finished in timeless Rosso Corsa paint over tan hides, this example was completed by Ferrari in February of 1983—the first Quattrovalvole-powered 308 produced. One of 748 GTB QVs produced and distributed worldwide, with fewer still for the US market, this rare example found its way to Wisconsin by 1991, where it was carefully maintained for the next 25 years.

In the winter of last year, a major engine-out service was completed by Ferrari specialist Motion Products, Inc in Neenah, Wisconsin. During the major service, the fuel pump, fuel accumulator, fuse box, water pump, and belts were all replaced while the engine, transmission, and coolant system were all drained and refilled. In addition to the service, all four tires were replaced with new, correct Michelin TRX tires. Receipts from the service total nearly $10,000.

This car is in wonderful condition cosmetically and mechanically. The vibrant Rosso Corsa paint shines beautifully and the rich leather interior is just as well presented. The fuel-injected engine runs smoothly and the gated shifter clicks through the 5-speed transaxle with aplomb. Offered with service records, along with all of its original tools, books, and jack this Quattrovalvole is a unique opportunity to acquire a rare and excellent example of Ferrari's iconic sports car.
