THE 308 GT4

Ferrari's family of immensely successful V8 road cars began in 1973 with the 308 GT4, a model badged until 1977 as a Dino, thereafter as a Ferrari. The Maranello factory's first V8-engined road car and first mid-engined 2+2, the 308 GT4 was the work of Bertone rather than the customary Pininfarina. By placing the front seats well forward Bertone made room within the 100" wheelbase for two children or one sideways-seated adult in the rear, while the compact engine/transaxle package left space behind the engine bay for a 5cu ft luggage compartment. Although the newcomer's wedge-shaped styling was controversial, the performance of its quad-cam 3.0-liter V8 did not disappoint, the latter's 255bhp proving sufficient to propel the 308 past 150mph, with 60mph coming up in under 7 seconds. All-round independent suspension and a stiff chassis ensured that the handling was what one would expect from a Ferrari, and disc brakes were utilized in all four corners. Road & Track magazine was most impressed by the 308 GT4's blend of speed and civility when they tested one in 1974. 'Apart from the performance, which you take for granted in a Ferrari, and the aforementioned remarkable flexibility of the engine, perhaps the most outstanding feature of the Dino 308 is the excellent ride it provides. The progress, compared to earlier Ferraris, is enormous.'

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 was constructed at the Ferrari factory during the Spring of 1975. The car is believed to have been equipped for the US market from new and is said to have spent many years in South Western ownership in the mild-climate states of California, Arizona and Texas. The Dino has recently received a belt service and comprehensive mechanical maintenance, yet remains in largely original cosmetic condition, retaining much of its original, factory installed dark blue interior. The odometer reading of less than 37,000 miles is indeed believed to be genuine and matches the age shown on the interior. Offered with service records, books and tools, this 308 GT4 is an increasingly sought-after 1970s Ferrari.
