1976 Ferrari 308"Vetroresina"
Introduced in 1975, the Ferrari 308 GTB, designed by Pininfarina and built by
Scaglietti, featured a modern design initially rendered in fibreglass—or ‘Vetroresina’ in Italian. It was the first production Ferrari to be built with a body made of the lightweight composite material. While the 308 and its various iterations would prove highly successful, Ferrari moved away from fiberglass construction to the more familiar steel panels after a limited number of cars were completed. According to the marque expert, Marcel Massini, as few as 712 cars received ‘Vetroresina’ bodywork. The early 'Vetroresina’ cars were substantially lighter than the metal-made 308s that followed: Weighing in at only 1,050 kilograms, the fiberglass car tipped the scales at approximately 150 kilograms less than their steel-bodied successors, allowing the drivers to take full advantage of the 308’s transverse mid-mounted 2.9-litre V-8 for optimal handling.
This 308 GTB Vetroresina was manufactured in April 1976 and sold new via Fiorano Concessionaria Veneto Milano. The car was finished in Rosso Corsa with Pelle Nera inside.
The car left Italy in 1993 when it was sold to a Swiss Collector.
The third owner bought the car in 2010 and made 50,000 kms with it since, including 4,000 kms over the last 4 years.
The engine has been totally redone 30,000 Kms ago.
Everything on the car has been restored, redone or replaced on a mechanical standpoint. This 308 GTB has always been carefully maintained.
The interior is original and in very good condition.
Very reliable car coming with a Ferrari Classiche Certification, spare wheel, tool roll, invoices and A/C is very good running order.
