THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Ferrari's first effort at building a car suitable for markets throughout the world, the Mondial 8 deployed the 308GT4's 3.0-liter quad-cam V8 engine in a lengthened version of the latter's chassis. Transmission and running gear remained much the same, with five-speed transaxle and independent suspension all round. Although reckoned by some to be less sporting than other Ferraris, the Mondial was still good for 140mph-plus and its ride quality and comfort scored over long distances. Considerably roomier than previous Ferrari 2+2s, the Pininfarina-styled Mondial has been described by Car magazine as, "the closest you'll get to supercar family transport." Developments included a proper (non-Targa) Cabriolet, the introduction of a more-powerful 'Qv' (quattro-valvole: four-valves-per-cylinder) engine in 1982 and enlargement to 3.2 liters for 1985. But Ferrari had not finished with the Mondial just yet. For 1989 the V8 engine was increased in capacity once again - this time to 3.4 liters - and, demonstrating that racing really does improve the breed, transmitted its 300bhp to the road via a transversale (transverse) five-speed gearbox developed using experience of this transmission arrangement gained in Formula 1. The Mondial 't' featured two other Ferrari 'firsts': power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering and cockpit-adjustable ride quality control. Anti-lock brakes were another standard feature, as was air conditioning.

Arguably the most desirable of all Mondial variants, this 't' Cabriolet was delivered new to Miami, Florida and driven sparingly in its early years with only 385 miles recorded just before Thanksgiving in 1992. Finished in the oh-so-Miami Vice colors of white over white hides and a black top, the Ferrari would bounce between Florida, New York, and Ohio for the first decade of its life racking up a mere 1,100 miles a year. On March 10, 2000 the powder white drop top joined the collection of New York-based sports car enthusiast Carl Lopp. Registered in Mississippi, Lopp would keep the car for over a dozen years before selling it to the present owner after covering 6,000 additional miles for a total of 17,135.

Since its acquisition, only 800 miles have been added to the odometer, which shows under 18,000 miles from new. Serviced as needed, records on file reflect that in the present ownership routine maintenance has been kept up by marque specialists Black Horse Automotive Services in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Rarely seen in this spectacular white-on-white specification, it is a scheme that is oh-so-'80s but also quite in vogue today. The perfect family Ferrari with ample seating for parents and kids alike, it is sure do delight its new owner. Just remind the kids to leave the crayons and Kool-Aid at home—it would be a pity to stain that white leather!
