Description

Debuted at the 1985 Frankfurt Auto Show, the Ferrari 328 was the second model in Ferrari's long and popular line of mid-engine V8 sports cars .
History :
The Ferrari 328 was designed by Pininfarina and produced from 1985 through 1990. Introduced at the September 1985 Frankfurt Motor Show, the 328 followed the Ferrari 308 but featured a transversely mounted V8 with an enlarged bore and stroke. The DOHC engine with Bosch K-Jetronic Fuel injection was capable of producing 270 horsepower. Power was transferred to the rear wheels through the use of a five-speed manual transaxle. The name '328' was attributed to its 3.2-liter eight-cylinder engine. The Pininfarina styling retained the same iconic silhouette as its forebear but added a larger 'egg crate' grille, new body-color bumpers, softened angularity, and reworked boot lids. The interior in the GTB were revamped, again inspired by the 288 GTO, with improved switchgear, more cosseting seats, and a redesigned center console.

The GTB represented Berlinetta on only 1,344 of the coupes were built.

ENGINE:
The 328 was designated a new model primarily because of changes to its engine. This second major development of the venerable 90° Ferrari V8, was the first to increase displacement, accomplished through increased bore and stroke.
Other changes included the replacement of shrunk-in cast iron and nikasil cylinder liners with shrunk-in aluminum/nikasil cylinder liners. A larger, redesigned oil cooler system was added to the larger, hotter engine and new spark plugs were also assigned. The Marelli Microplex single module ignition system was adopted. Intake camshafts were revised to complement throttle body and intake manifold changes. The piston casting was also new, helping to produce a compression ratio of 9.2:1. Efficiency and reliability were increased along with power and torque.
Power was produced with a testament to Ferrari's development prowess. Even with its larger wheels and tires, the greater power and lower weight of the 328 rocketed it to 100 km/h in well under 5,5 seconds, with a terminal speed of 256 km/h. The 328 was something of a rarity in being able to hit its redline in fifth gear, a further testament to its design and ability. The 328's driver knows the car's full potential is always available.

CHASSIS -BODY - SUSPENSION :
The Ferrari 328 used the preceding 308's tubular-steel chassis with an independent suspension with anti-roll bars and disc brakes. With the adoption of the 288 GTO-specification steering rack, the 328 enjoyed notably sharper responses.
The body was formed mostly from steel. The front hood was aluminum, the floorpan was fiberglass-sandwiched steel. Fiberglass was employed for the inner wheel arches, while strong ABS plastic was used for some louvers and valance panels. The adoption of galvanized steel to drastically retard corrosion was a key improvement.
The suspension was the time-tested unequal-length dual wishbone design with coil springs over Koni shock absorbers. It featured standard front and rear anti-roll bars. In calibrating the suspension and making use of improved technology, Ferrari improved both ride and road holding. In high speed and track conditions especially, the 328 adhered to the asphalt noticeably better than its predecessor, particularly at the rear. A revision that evened front to rear weight balance helped with the road holding.

INTERIOR :
The interior of the 328 owed as much to Ferrari's 1984 GTO supercar as it did to the 308. The GTO was a homologated racing car derived from the 308 series. The GTO's interior was significantly different from the 308's, maintaining a hint of luxury mixed with the purposeful simplicity of a racing cockpit. The 328 benefited significantly from the development of the GTO's interior, gaining a simple modernity without sacrificing style.

The back-lit orange on black gauges of the GTO were installed into the 328 almost unchanged. The main instrument binnacle, seen through the anatomical Momo steering wheel, presented the driver with information from the large tachometer and speedometer with odometer and trip counter. Between these large round gauges were two smaller ones for coolant temperature and oil pressure.
