1980 FERRARI 308 GTS (carbs) – 53,000 miles – £95,950

Introduced at the Paris Salon in 1975, the stunningly beautiful 308 – Ferrari’s second V8-engined road car – marked a welcome return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed Dino 308 GT4. Badged as a ‘proper’ Ferrari rather than a Dino, the newcomer had changed little mechanically apart from a reduction in wheelbase, retaining its predecessor’s underpinnings and the transversely mounted, quad-cam 3.0-litre V8 engine that initially featured dry sump lubrication before later being supplied with wet sump for export markets.

In road tune this superbly engineered power unit produced 255bhp with an overall weight of just over 1000kg, an output good enough to propel the aerodynamically efficient 308 to a top speed of 150mph.

This is a Uk supplied full matching numbers example in excellent condition with one of the most comprehensive history files I have seen.

From the original sales order, handbooks, service book to a chronological binder full of every service invoice.

Cambelt serviced a few hundred miles ago at Rardley Ferrari she drives beautifully with superb gear change and a well tuned and set up power plant.

On the road these 308s are light and nimble with a stunning soundtrack from the V8 .

There are plenty of cheaper very average examples for sale but very rare to find one in this outstanding condition.

Supplied fully inspected,serviced with a comprehensive 12 month warranty.
