Description

The Ferrari 308 was a replacement for the successful 246 Dino line. It sported a Pininfarina-styled body that was available in only a GTB coupe early on; in 1977, Ferrari introduced the GTS model. The “S” signifying Spider, in this case in a targa top form. Its iconic wedge-shaped body lines were designed by Leonardo Fioravanti who famously penned the 365GTB/4 Daytona and 246 Dino.

This specific model year was equipped with a carbureted 2.9-liter, 240-hp V-8 engine with the ever reliable rear-mounted five-speed manual transaxle.

This 1978 particular example with a first registration on the 30th of June 1978. Finished in “Rosso Corsa” over a “Black” leather interior showing 90,790 km on the odometer, this car has been well looked after (big maintenance service in 2019: engine rebuilt, clutch, gaskets, timing belt, bearings,.....).
