1985 Ferrari 308 GTS QV

Description

Introduced at the Paris Auto Salon in 1975, the contemporary styled 308 GTB – Ferrari’s second V8 road car – marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed 308 GT4. Badged as a ‘proper’ Ferrari rather than a Dino, the 308 GTB had changed little mechanically apart from a reduction in both wheelbase and weight, retaining its predecessor’s underpinnings and transversely mounted engine that now featured dry-sump lubrication.

In road tune this superbly engineered power unit produced 255bhp, an out-put good enough to propel the 308 GTB to a top speed of over 150mph. Produced initially with fiberglass bodywork – the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari, the Scaglietti-built 308 GTB used steel after April 1977. Further developments included the introduction of an open-top GTS version with Targa-style removable roof, the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and, finally, revised cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder on the Quattrovalvole (QV) model in 1982. An exhilarating driver’s car and a Ferrari purist’s delight, the 308 GTSi and its many derivatives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello, with over 12,000 sold.

This wonderful example presented in the classic Ferrari colour combination of Rosso Corsa with sumptuous tan leather interior has clearly led a pampered life. Having covered approximately 50,000 miles from new, with a good history file to support it, the car is complete with factory fitted air conditioning and 16” wheels. Offered with the original manuals, tool kit, targa cover and jack; there is also a clean MOT certificate and UK V5C. A lovely GTSi that is said to drive beautifully and is ready to be enjoyed by a lucky new custodian.
