In the early 1970s, Ferrari is working on a successor to the Dino 246. The beautiful, Pininfarina-designed, compact two-seater with mid-engine has been overtaken in design by the competition, which is massively going for clean lines in this period. And so the project had to take a completely different tack. Bertone was invited to Ferrari’s headquarters and the new project was quickly drawn up.
Gandini, then working at Bertone, draws the 308 GT4. No line is the same as its predecessor, but the concept remains the same: a compact sports car with a mid-engine. Where the 206 and 246 Dino had a six-cylinder, the 308 GT4 and later 208 GT4 have an eight-cylinder behind the four seats.
Initially the model bears the Dino logo and the prancing horse is not on the car, but later the two-plus-two-seater is finally sold as Ferrari, with Ferrari logos on the body, wheels and steering wheel.
For years, the 308 GT4 has been undervalued, but in recent years that has changed completely. More and more enthusiasts appreciate the value of the beautiful Gandini creation, which translates into a high appreciation of the model.
This 308 GT4 dates from 1975. The red GT4 is in a particularly beautiful condition, partly due to the fact that the car has already been completely restored and overhauled in the past. After that, the car was cherished and used only selectively, so that the condition can still be described as ‘very nice’. The mileage could only be the original.
The body of the Dino is neatly painted, with a nice deep shine and little to no signs of wear. The doors close neatly and fittings are all very neat. The body seams are also all nice and straight. The 308 has neat wheels and tires in the correct size.
A look into the interior provides more pleasant surprises. The upholstery is largely original and in beautiful condition, with the cognac-colored leather upholstery combining beautifully with the red exterior. The condition of the upholstery is beautiful, something that also applies to the headliner and the black carpets. The seats are just as good as they look. The back seat is like new and offers space for smaller fellow people.
The dashboard is fully functional and also very beautiful with all gauges and instruments. The controls also work properly, with a large part housed on the dashboard and a part, which Ferrari did not lose there, in the center tunnel. The original factory supplied Borletti air conditioning can also be found there.
The 308 GT4 features Ferrari’s well-known 2,926 cc eight-cylinder engine. With four Weber DCNF carburetors, the 308 has about 255 hp. The power source has been well maintained and does its job with great pleasure. The entire car is in top condition, so the driving characteristics will not disappoint.
The 308 GT4 finally gets the appreciation it deserves and then this GT4 is also in the condition we prefer to see it: beautiful and very good.
