Ferrari's line of highly successful V8-engined road cars began with the 308 GT4 of 1973. Originally badged as a 'Dino', the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 superseded the 246 Dino V6. The Dino’s Bertone penned lines were not universally praised with a slightly less-than-graceful design but the powertrain certainly was. With a 3 litre quad-cam V8 engine mounted transversely amidships it’s performance was not to be sniffed at and was subsequently carried over to it’s Pininfarina designed successor, the 308 GTB.

Originally unveiled at the Paris Auto Salon in 1975, the 308 GTB marked a return to Pininfarina design following the Bertone styled 308 GT4. Dropping the Dino name of the GT4 in favour of the ‘full fat’ Ferrari badge, the 308 GTB had changed little underneath with the exception of a reduction in both length and weight and most importantly retained its predecessor’s glorious 3 litre quad-cam V8 that now featured dry-sump lubrication.

Produced initially with fiber glass bodywork, the 308GTB used a steel only construction after April 1977 and retained dry sump lubrication until 1981. To go alongside the GTB, the open-top GTS version with a Targa-style removable roof was introduced at the 1977 Frankfurt Motor Show which used a wet sump engine and was steel-bodied.

To this day the 308 is still regarded as an exhilarating driver's car and is a firm favorite among Ferrari purists.


This particular 308 GTSi was completed by the Maranello Works in 1982 and supplied new to the USA to Dealer 62967 The next recorded event in the car’s life was when it title was updated by the New York Motor Vehicle Dept in 1987. The car was then purchased from Beverley Hills Ferrari in 1999 showing just 42,426 Miles. The car then remained in California for 16 years amassing a tiny 800 miles in that time period. The previous owner purchased the vehicle in 2015 and proceeded to set about a sympathetic re-commissioning process using a noted local specialist. These works included full belt service, clutch replacement, alloy wheel refurbishment and professional detailing of the paintwork.

The vehicle arrived in the UK in 2017 into Liverpool Docks where it was transported to Ferrari specialists GT Cars of Chester for inspection and pre-sale preparation.
This excellent example has, to date, covered just 43407 Miles. Accompanying the sale of the car are the original manual, as well as the tool kit, targa cover, both keys, clean MOT certificate and jack..

As 308’s continue to mature gracefully, this lovely example would make a fabulous addition to any collection. A beautiful classic that offers both investment potential and classic open-air motoring. This is a very special car.
