Description

In 1975 the Ferrari 308 GTB brought new life to Ferrari. Firstly, it revived the tradition of small berlinettas (the B in GTB), which had come to an end when production of the 246 GT ceased. It employed the 3-litre V8 already seen on the 308 GT4, in an impressive dry sump form using a cam belt for the first time. Moreover, the car had been designed by Pininfarina, integrating features on the 246 GT with a more modern styling. Finally, to keep the weight down, fibreglass was used for the body, a first for a road-going Ferrari.

Weighing little more than a tonne, this agile car was capable of more than 250 km/h, making it hard to keep up with. Unfortunately high build costs compelled Ferrari to return to the steel bodies from 1977, the year of the car on offer. Immediately, the 308 GTB became heavier by 300 kg and lost some of its predecessor’s brilliance. Just 712 examples of the fibreglass version were built, making it the most sought-after of the whole series, especially as the bodywork is finished to such a high standard that it is almost impossible, by eye, to tell them apart from the steel-bodied cars.

Chassis 19115 was delivered new to France, and still bears the plate of Ch. Pozzi, the exclusive Ferrari France importer. As per the official register Ferrari, chassis 19115 is one of a few 308 GTB Vetroresina born as a  “Competizione” by Ferrari, and ran in France in period. The condition both mechanically and bodily of this wonderful car are described to be excellent.

This genuine 308 GTB Vetroresina Competizione come to the market with its French paperwork and it’s fantastic Ferrari Group B four valve engine. Unrepeatable opportunity to aquire a one of a handful of genuine Competizione cars.

Fahrgestellnr. 19115 wurde neu nach Frankreich ausgeliefert, und trägt noch heute das Schild von Ch. Pozzi, dem exklusiven Einfuhrhändler von Ferrari France. Laut offiziellen Ferrari Registers ist es einer von wenigen 308 GTB Vetroresina als “Competizione”, und hatte in Frankreich seine Einlaufphase. Sowohl der Zustand der Mechanik, als auch die der Karosserie werden als exzellent beschrieben. 

Dieser authentische 308 GTB Vetroresina Competizione mit französischen Papieren und seinem fantastischen Ferrari Gruppe B 4-Ventil-Motor angeboten. Eine tolle Gelegenheit eines der wenigen authentischen Competizione Autos zu erwerben.
