Full service history from its time in the USMajor service including timing beltsatThe Supercar Rooms in 2016The current MOT is valid untilOctober 2021 and the indicated mileage is 63,414Sensibly guided offering agreat entry into the world of Classic FerrarisFerraris line of highly successful V8-engined road cars began with the 308 GT4 of 1973. Badged as a Di-no, the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 superseded the preceding Dino V6. The newcomers wedge-shaped styling by Bertone rather than the customary Pininfarina was not universally well-received but there were no complaints about the performance of the 3.0-litre quad-cam V8 engine, which was carried over to its successor.Introduced at the Paris Auto Salon in 1975, the contemporary styled 308 GTB Ferraris second V8 road car marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed 308 GT4. Badged as a proper Ferrari rather than a Dino, the 308 GTB had changed little mechanically apart from a reduction in both wheelbase and weight, retaining its predecessors underpinnings and transversely mounted engine that now featured dry-sump lubrication.In road tune, this superbly engineered power unit produced 255bhp, an output good enough to propel the 308 GTB to a top speed of over 150mph. Produced initially with fibreglass bodywork the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari, the Scaglietti-built 308 GTB used steel after April 1977. Further developments included the introduction of an open-top GTS version with Targa-style removable roof, the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and, finally, revised cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder on the Quattrovalvole (QV) model in 1982. An exhilarating drivers car and a Ferrari purists delight, the 308 GTSi and its many derivatives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello, with over 12,000 sold.Offered here is a lovely Ferrari 308 GTSi finished in Giallo Fly with part black leather withyellow inserts. Originally supplied to California in left-hand drive and imported into the UK in 2015, it's accompanied by a full service history from itstime in America recorded in the original service booklet. In 2016, it had a major service including timing belts carried out by The Supercar Rooms and also its first UK MOT. The current MOT is valid untilOctober 2021 and the indicated mileage is 63,414.This pretty Ferrari presents really well and is in excellent overallcondition. At todays estimate, this could be a great entry into the world of Classic Ferraris.You can now book a one-to-one appointment (up to one hour) to view this lot at our central location Monday to Wednesday betweenbetween Thursday 29thOctober - 12thNovember.
