The Ferrari 328 GTS and GTB had their worldwide debut at the 1985 Frankfurt motor show. Its styling is an obvious evolution of the Ferrari 308 series, with Pininfarina's Leonardo Fioravanti softening his previous design so that it remained a popular choice with the Ferrari aficionados. While some prefer the purer lines of the original car, there's no denying that the 328's more grown up drive and more advanced mechanicals moved the game on considerably. As with the 308, there were two body styles available from the factory, the GTB coupe and the targa-roofed GTS. Becoming instantly popular, Ferrari went on to produce 7,400 variants worldwide during the production run which finished late in 1989.
Under the engine cover is the same transversely-mounted, fuel-injected V8 engine from the Ferrari 308 Quattrovalvole, with an increase in displacement to 3.2 litres. Performance, handling and road holding are a big step on from its predecessor, although it retains all the benefits of the Ferrari 308's independent suspension and five-speed manual gearbox. Now regarded as a true design classic, this ultimate 270 bhp sportscar of the day reached 0 - 60 in 5.5 seconds and went to a top speed of 166mph. Another significant difference over the Ferrari 308 is the use of galvanized steel, which greatly reduces potential rust problems compared to its forebear.
The early models of the 328 have an edge as far as collectability goes, thanks to several unique interior details, as well as the elegant concave wheel design.
Delivered new to Switzerland and first registered 01/02/1988, this striking Ferrari 328GTS is finished in rare Bianco with blue leather and comes Complete with leather service booklet, tools, Jack, Targa roof-bag and even the genuine Ferrari torch. As the values of these cars are so closely linked to their condition and mileage, a good service history is virtually priceless and this example comes with just that:
Now showing 53,000kms the car is presented in fantastic all round condition and benefits from a recent belt, tensioners and air-con service.
A great car in a very stylish colour, sure to tastefully stand out from the crowd of Red Ferraris we're so used to seeing. Today the 328 is a great car, both for the first time Ferrari buyer as well as the seasoned enthusiast looking to add an appreciating classic to their collection, surely worthy of serious consideration.
