The mid-engine 308/328 series defined a breakout decade for Ferrari and became a favorite among fans of the Modenese constructor. Offered as a berlinetta (GTB) or a targa-top spider (GTS), the 328 featured a transverse-mounted four-cam V-8 engine and five-speed transaxle that provided ample performance and a classic Ferrari driving experience. The Pininfarina-styled bodywork complemented the model’s dynamic character and has become synonymous with 1980s Italian design.
The North American-specification 328 GTS offered here was completed in May 1987 and sold new through Bob Sharp Ferrari of Danbury, Connecticut, on July 11, 1987. Its excellent Rosso Corsa paintwork is in fine condition, and believed by the consignor to be original. The GTS is equipped with air-conditioning, power windows, and audio entertainment. Showing just 19,900 miles at the time of cataloguing, its preserved interior upholstery, undercarriage, and stowage compartments all remain tidy and presentable. The consignor undertook a belt service in January 2019, and fitted a new set of Pirelli P Zero tires. All electronics, lights, and safety equipment are reported to be in working order, including the clock and auxiliaries. Included with the sale are the original owner’s manual, tool roll, jack, and bulb/fuse container.
A well-maintained example benefiting from sparing use, this pampered 328 GTS represents an opportunity to acquire one of the most-respected modern V-8 models from Maranello.
