Footnotes

  • Ferrari's line of highly successful V8-engined road cars began with the 308 GT4 of 1973. Badged as a 'Dino', the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 superseded the preceding Dino V6.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-litre quad-cam V8 engine, which was carried over to its successor.

    Introduced at the Paris Salon in 1975, the stunningly beautiful 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 output good enough to propel the 308 GTB to a top speed of over 150mph. Produced initially with glassfibre 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, the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and, finally, revised cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder on the Quattrovalvole (QV) model in 1982. An exhilarating driver's car and a Ferrari purist's delight, the 308 GTB and its many derivatives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello with over 12,000 sold.

    Representing the 308 in its ultimate, Quattrovalvole form, this right-hand drive example of Ferrari's first Pininfarina-styled V8 road car was sold new in the UK in December 1984 and has belonged to the present owner since October 2001. The car is finished in classic Rosso with Crema leather interior, and looks just like the one driven by Tom Sellick in the American TV series, 'Magnum PI'. Scarcely used since acquisition, apart from the occasional day out, the car has covered only some 37,400 miles from new and has been serviced throughout its life by recognised Ferrari specialists. The private vendor advises us that it performs perfectly and is a pleasure to own and drive, and is only selling the Ferrari because a forthcoming house move will see him lose his six-car garage.
