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 Badged as a ‘Dino’, the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 superseded the preceding Dino V6.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 modern and up to date, absent were complaints about the performance of the 3.0-liter quad-cam V8 engine, which was then carried over to its successor.
The angular styled GT4 was remarkable in its ability to hold the occasional rear passenger whilst maintaining a compact and aggressive appearance. In this respect, most agree that the GT4 was vastly superior to its successor the Mondial. The aggressive styling has aged well and when finished in a period colour, the result is quite sought after.
The interior was luxuriously appointed with handsome Italian string. The wrap around instrument panel put the gauges and controls in close sight and reach and the centre console is reminiscent of the Daytona Coupe.
This Particular GT4 was delivered new to Charles Pozzi in Paris, the French importer in 1975. One of the first cars fitted with air conditioning, this wonderful GT4 has been the subject of a sympathetic restoration – presented in good driving order and retaining a nicely patinated interior. A wonderful European delivery example of the GT4 offered with a sensible reserve.
