Footnotes

  • Launched at the Paris Salon in 1975, the stunningly beautiful Ferrari 308 GTB marked a welcome return to Pininfarina styling after the Bertone-styled 308 GT/4. The latter's 3.0-litre V8 was retained in 255bhp dry-sump form for the 308 GTB, which was produced initially with glassfibre bodywork, the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari. The Scaglietti-built 308 used steel after April 1977, while further developments included the introduction that year of an open-top GTS version with Targa-style removable roof; the adoption of Bosch fuel injection (1980); and, finally, revised cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder (1982).

    This particular 308 GTS was delivered new to the USA but has been updated with European specification bodywork (bumpers, grille) and has a carburettor-equipped engine. It should be noted that the original speedometer (with 43,000 miles recorded, included in the sale) was replaced with a km/h unit in 2018. The current odometer reading is circa 4,000 kilometres, making the total distance travelled from new circa 73,000 kilometres. Finished in grey metallic with red leather interior, the car is offered with its service book, original tool kit, French Carte Grise, and recent invoices for servicing and replacement parts including timing belts, starter motor, brakes, alternator, water pump, front shock absorbers, etc.

    Carrosserie Pininfarina/Scaglietti
    Châssis n° 27889

    •Livrée neuve aux États-Unis
    •Moteur concordant
    •Carrosserie aux normes européennes
    •Environ 73 000 kilomètres d'origine
    •Récemment révisée

    Présentée au Salon de Paris en 1975, la superbe 308 GTB marquait un retour apprécié aux services de Pininfarina pour le style, après la Dino 308 GT4 dessinée par Bertone. Elle reprenait le V8 3 litres de cette dernère, avec 255 ch et équipé d'une lubrification par carter sec sur la 308 GTB, produite à ses débuts avec une carrosserie en résine et fibre de verre, un matériau que Ferrari utilisait pour la première fois sur un modèle de série. La 308 GTB, construite par Scaglietti après avril 1977, faisait appel à l'acier et les évolutions successives virent l'apparition d'une version ouverte, la GTS avec un toit amovible type Targa, l'adoption de l'injection électronique Bosch (1980) et, finalement, une culasse modifiée à quatre soupapes par cylindre (1982).

    Cette 308 GTS particulière a été livrée neuve aux États-Unis mais sa carrosserie a été remise aux spécifications européennes (pare-chocs, calandre) et elle est équipée de carburateurs. Signalons que le compteur d'origine (qui affichait 43 000 miles et qui est inclus dans la vente) a été remplacé par un modèle kilométrique en 2018. Il affiche actuellement environ 4 000 kilomètres, portant la distance totale parcourue de puis son origine à environ 73 000 kilomètres. Gris métallisé avec intérieur en cuir rouge, la voiture est vendue avec son carnet d'entretien, sa trousse à outils d'origine, sa carte grise française et des factures récentes d'entretien et de remplacement de pièces, courroie de distribution, démarreur, freins, alternateur, pompe à eau, amortisseurs avant, etc...
