Description

Officially introduced at the Paris Salon in October 1975, the 308 GTB’s styling was created by Pininfarina. The stunning two seat coachwork was all new, but incorporated all of the old magic by blending aspects of the Dino 206/246 with the later 365 GT4/BB. Reminiscent of the Boxer was the dihedral groove at bumper level splitting top and bottom, the plunging nose and the sail panels reaching back to meet a shallower spoiler, while the conical side air intakes and recessed concave rear window were familiar from the Dino.

The 308 GTB employed a tubular steel chassis with independent coil spring/wishbone suspension front and rear, complimented by anti-roll bars, adjustable dampers and powerful disc brakes. At its heart was a Formula One derived, all alloy, four camshaft 3.0 litre V8 engine, allied to a transversely mounted five-speed gearbox. Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical fuel injection was added for the 1980 308 GTBi and GTSi, decreasing emissions.

Chassis 21993 is a genuine European RHD 308GTB that is finished in its original colour combination of red over tanned hide interior and was purchased by its current owner over 17 years ago.

Included in the cars history file are several old registration documents and numerous MoT certificates showing the cars sparing yet regular use and the odometer currently reads 35,600 miles.

This is a fantastic example of Maranello’s most popular and practical mid-engined GT car, and with reasonably low mileage, this car represents a great opportunity as not only an investment, but also to be used and enjoyed.
