The 308 is regarded by many as one of Ferrari‘s greatest production and styling triumphs. The original 308 GTB released in 1975 is the first production Ferrari to have a fiberglass body, excluding the bonnet which is aluminum. The 308 GTB is the direct successor to the Dino 246 GT and enthusiasts of that model praise the air intakes, double taillights and concave rear window that are reminiscent of the predecessor. After a few years, in 1977, the 308 gets a steel body and the car gets the necessary innovations over the years. For example, the 308 gets an injection system in 1980 and ‘the prancing horse’ presents the 308 Quattrovalvole in 1982. Yes, with four valves per cylinder. Due to the extra valves, the maximum power has increased to 240 hp.
The 308 you see here was handed over to the first owner in America on February 6, 1986. Timothy Hord was allowed to collect his special white sports car with red leather from the dealer in Dearborn, Michigan, according to the original booklet that came with the car is present. A color combination that we rarely encounter, and that while the 308 looks remarkably well. In that case, there is also the fact that the car is in a very fresh condition and that is of course almost logical with a mileage of 34,955, about 56,000 kilometers. That mileage can be read directly from the interior, which is in excellent condition. The leather of the seats is supple, well maintained and hardly shows any significant wear. Actually, we also immediately discussed the rest of the interior because that too is all in a beautiful condition. The red dashboard is free of damage, the characteristic sea-green meters of Veglia are in a very nice optical condition and fully functional and even the steering wheel is still beautiful without any worn spots. Carpeting, door panels and other controls are also all beautiful. Rarely do we see original interiors so beautiful. And complete too, because the 308 has air conditioning ex-factory.
The ‘bianco’ paint is in excellent condition, there is plenty of gloss and the Italian beauty should have no damage or imperfections. And so there is a car with a beautiful clean body on this page. The fits are neat, doors close nicely and the front and tailgate fall easily into the lock.
The 308 shifts fantastic with the large black poker ball that protrudes from the center tunnel and so we are happy to put the poker ball in the first gear. The eight-cylinder picks up nicely and delivers more impressive performance than you would say based on the numbers. A real Italian sports car with a lot of temperament. The chassis is clearly fresh and the brakes also provide the desired effect: slow down considerably.
With this Ferrari you can own a true icon. A car that will only become more popular and also a model where keeping the car running optimally is still ‘doable’. There is little like an 80s Ferrari, if you agree, this may well be a choice with the heart and with the mind, especially because of the special color scheme of this Quattrovalvole!
