The 308 GTB was launched at the Paris Motor show in 1975 as a direct replacement for the Dino 246. Designed by Pininfarina with sweeping curves and aggressive lines, the 308 has gone on to become one of the most recognised Ferraris of all time particularly by viewers of the hit TV series "Magnum PI" whose hero, played by Tom Selleck, was frequently seen in a Targa topped 308 GTS version. Fitted with a 2.9 litre DOHC V8 engine fitted with four Weber 40DCNF Carburettors producing 255bhp, the 308 accelerated from 0 to 60mph in 6.5 seconds and on to a top speed of 159 mph. In 1980, fuel injection was fitted to the 308 and two years later four valves per cylinder were added, giving Quattrovalvole models 240bhp. The 308 was manufactured in both GTB and GTS forms from 1977 to 1985, before being replaced by the 328.

This, American market, 308 GTBi was imported into the UK and is equipped with electric windows and air conditioning.

A very presentable example in Blue Chiaro, the car shows 19,000 unwarranted miles, however, an American Carfax report does show that in 1994 the speedometer was reading 17,648mls and that it was in long-term ownership during later years in the USA.

In common with many imported cars, there is only a small amount of service history, with some invoices most of which are from circa 2008/9 when it would seem the car underwent some recommissioning work. From the information available it appears the work included a full rebuild of the brakes and an engine strip and rebuild with all the relevant ancillaries.

In January of this year, the car was fitted with a new clutch as well as having a major service including the all-important cam belt replacement.

Presented with the owner's handbook along with some invoices from the States and more recent invoices for work carried out in the UK, this very presentable and usable example of these fabulous cars is an economical entry into Ferrari ownership.
