Description

The 308 was introduced as the successor to the Ferrari Dino at the 1975 Paris Motor Show. The 308 – referring to the cylinder capacity and number of cylinders – was manufactured from 1975 to 1985.
The car, which was designed by Pininfarina, was a two-seater with quite aggressive lines.
Until 1977 the bodywork around the tube frame was made of glass-reinforced plastic (GRP), after that the manufacturers switched to a steel body.
The 308 was equipped with a rear mounted V8 with carburettor with a 2926 cc cylinder capacity, good for 250 HP. In 1980 Ferrari introduced mechanical injection.
The model was available in both a coupé (Gran Turismo Berlinetta) and a cabrio – Targa Top (Gran Turismo Spider) version.

‘Collection by Vermant’ is delighted to be in a position to offer you this 1982 Ferrari 308 GTS I model. It is one of only 1743 cars of this type to be manufactured!
This one was delivered new on 13 September 1983 by ‘Foreign cars Italia’ in North Carolina - USA in the colour combination ‘Rosso Corsa’ with a black leather interior. The GTS was equipped with air conditioning, electric windows, tinted windows all round, a heated rear windscreen, a 5 speed manual gearbox, a ‘limited slip’ differential, central locking, electric mirrors, etc.

This cabrio has clocked up only 45,120 miles (72,200 km) and is still in superb condition! The interior is completely original and in excellent condition, as is the paintwork. All factory stickers are in place, and the toolkit and vehicle documentation present. Finally, the GTS comes with the original invoice!

The 308 recently underwent a comprehensive major service during which all belts were replaced, a new coupling installed, all fluids replaced, etc. This means that this brilliant classic is now ready for many hours of driving pleasure on the open roads!
