Footnotes

  • In 1975 Ferrari introduced a 2.0-litre version of the Dino 308 GT4 - the 208 GT4 - to take advantage of its home market's vehicle taxation system. The V8 engine was reduced in bore size to 66.8mm (from 81mm) for a capacity of 1,991cc and produced 170bhp at 7,700rpm, and this downsized unit continued in the successor 208 GTB model from 1980, although now with a maximum output of 155bhp. In April 1982 Ferrari introduced a significantly more powerful version at the Turin Motor Show - the 208 Turbo - which employed a single KKK turbocharger and Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection. The result of these developments was a dramatic increase in maximum power to 220bhp. This was not far short of the 3.0-litre 308 GTB's 255 horsepower and the figure was raised to 254bhp in 1986 when the model designation changed to 'GTB Turbo'. Bodywork changes included five additional cooling slats beneath the front grille and the adoption of NACA ducts ahead of the rear wheel arches. Matt black vents were fitted directly behind the retractable headlights and a full-width vent on the leading edge of the bonnet, while at the rear there was a split bumper with central grille and distinctive quadruple exhaust pipes set in pairs. A total of 437 208 GTB Turbo coupés and 250 208 GTS Turbo spiders had been completed by the time of the successor GTB Turbo's arrival in 1986.

    Chassis number '45885' was imported from a motor dealer in Italy and first registered in the UK on 13th October 2015, having been stored for some 20 years before re-commissioning. Accompanying copies of the Italian registration documents show that the car was first owned by a Mr Bruno Bergonzoni of Bologna, while stamps in the service book record regular servicing up to 1990 and confirm the 'mileage'. Purchased by the vendor in December 2015, the Ferrari went to marque specialists Foskers for servicing (including changing cam belts) and also received a minor service in March 2017.

    Finished in Rosso Corsa with re-trimmed tan leather interior, this rare Ferrari sports car is offered with sundry service bills, current MoT, V5C document, and its original leather wallet containing the handbook and service book.
