Description

The Ferrari 308 GTB berlinetta and targa topped 308 GTS are V8 mid-engined, 2-seater sports cars manufactured by the Italian company Ferrari from 1975 to 1985. The 308 replaced the Dino 246 GT and GTS in 1975 and was updated as the 328 in 1985. The similar 208 GTB and GTS were equipped with a smaller initially naturally aspirated, later turbocharged 2-litre engine, and sold mostly in Italy.

The 308’s body was designed by Pininfarina’s Leonardo Fioravanti, who had been responsible for some of Ferrari’s most celebrated shapes to date, including the Daytona, the Dino and the Berlinetta Boxer. The 308 used elements of these shapes to create something very much in contrast with the angular GT4.

The 308 had a tube frame with separate body. The 308 GTB/GTS and GT4 were mechanically similar, and also shared much with the original Dino. Both 308s sit on the same tube platform, however the GT4—being a 2+2—has a longer wheelbase. The engine was a V8 of a 90 degree configuration, with belt-driven twin overhead camshafts per cylinder bank. It was transversely mounted in unit with the transaxle transmission assembly, which was below and to the rear of the engine’s sump. All models used a fully synchromesh 5-speed manual and a clutch-type limited slip differential. Suspension was all-independent, comprising double wishbones, coaxial coil springs and hydraulic dampers, and anti-roll bars on both axles; four wheel vented disc brakes were also fitted. Steering was unassisted rack and pinion.

This fabulous example of an iconic Italian sports car, which has covered only 65,000 kilometres, is presented in red with black leather interior. The GTB has become one of the most recognizable and iconic cars produced by Ferrari to date.  This wonderful car is presented in excellent condition according to the vendor.

Dieses fabelhafte Beispiel eines ikonischen italienischen Sportwagens, der nur 65.000 km gefahren ist, präsentiert sich in Rot mit schwarzem Lederinterieur. Der GTB ist eines der Autos mit höchstem Wiedererkennungswert, der von Ferrari bis heute hergestellt wurde. Laut Verkäufer ist dieses wundervolle Auto im exzellenten Zustand.
