THE FERRARI 308

Introduced at the Paris Auto Salon in 1975, the contemporary styled 308 GTB 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. Later developments included the introduction of an open-top GTS version with Targa-style removable roof, the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and, finally, revised cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder on the Quattrovalvole model in 1982. An exhilarating driver's car and a Ferrari purist's delight, the 308 and its many derivatives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This brilliant black over tan Ferrari 308 GTSi spent the better portion of its life in the dry California climate. Consequently, the vehicle stands in very good shape throughout, with a believed to be original odometer reading of just 35,119 miles at the time of cataloging. Inside, the original leather appears in good condition all around and the gauges presents clearly. Previous owners of this 308 have steered clear of modifications outside of the more modern radio fitted within the dashboard. The smog equipment originally fitted to the car is still in situ, and the car has been well maintained throughout its history documented on receipts accompanying the vehicle. In 2016 the motor received a belt service, and should not be a point of concern for the new owner. Offered with the car today are the proper books and factory tool kit, service records and a CARFAX report.

A fine example of the final evolution 308 in Targa-top configuration, this lovely Ferrari benefits from the 4-valve, quad-cam 2.9 Liter engine, known to both sound and perform very well. This lithe mid-engined sports car should excite owners looking for thrills only a prancing horse can deliver.
