Ferrari’s first effort at building a car suitable for markets throughout the world, the Mondial 8 deployed the 308 GT4’s 3.0-litre quad-cam V8 engine in a lengthened version of the latter’s chassis. Transmission and running gear remained much the same, with five-speed transaxle and independent suspension all round. Although reckoned by some to be less sporting than other Ferraris, the Mondial was still good for 225km/h-plus and its ride quality and comfort scored well over long distances. The Mondial was also one of the first Ferraris to benefit from zinc anti-corrosion coating of its steel panels. Considerably roomier than previous Ferrari 2+2’s, the Pininfarina-styled Mondial has been described by Car magazine as, ‘the closest you’ll get to supercar family transport.’
The example on offer today is presented in the desirable and rare colour combination of Grey with red leather interior. Showing circa 74,000 Kilometres, it is presented in good all-round condition. The body and paintwork show little sign of wear and the engine is strong. A comprehensive history file accompanies the car with a documented service book along with invoices of work that has been carried out. Offered with a current UK registration document and MoT test certificate, this fantastic example is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner.
