Description

Guide price: £77000 - £85000. <p> </p><ul><li>A beautiful, UK-supplied 328 GTS in the most appealing colours</li><li>Showing just 29,331 miles on the odometer</li><li>Comprehensive service history and a full file of invoices</li><li>Supplied with a UK V5c, fresh MOT and all books & tools</li></ul><p> </p><p>The Ferrari 328 GTS and GTB made their worldwide debut at the 1985 Frankfurt Motor Show and its styling was an obvious evolution of the Ferrari 308 series, however, Pininfarina's Leonardo Fioravanti had softened his previous design and it still remained a popular choice with the Ferrari aficionados. Another significant difference over the Ferrari 308 is the use of galvanized steel, which greatly reduces potential rust problems compared to its forebear.</p><p>Under the engine cover is the same transversely-mounted, fuel-injected V8  from the Ferrari 308 Quattrovalvole, with an increase in displacement. By increasing both bore and stroke, the 'quattrovalvole's capacity was raised to 3,186cc which, together with a higher compression ratio, revised pistons, and an improved Marelli engine management system, lifted maximum power to 270bhp at 7,000rpm. Top speed was raised to within a whisker of 160mph (258km/h) with 0-60mph being achieved in 5.5 seconds. </p><p>Beneath the skin, the tubular steel chassis remained much as before, with all-round independent suspension by double wishbones, four-wheel servo-assisted disc brakes, and aluminium-alloy wheels, though the latter were increased in size. The interior too had come in for subtle revision and now featured improved instruments, switchgear, and heating.</p><p>While the 328 GTS was a runaway commercial success for Ferrari, the number of RHD cars built was less than 10% of the production run.  This UK-supplied, right-hand drive Ferrari 328 GTS was registered to its first owner on 7th April 1989. Supplied new through Lancaster Ferrari in Colchester, this stunning example is finished is the most desirable colour combination of Rosso Corsa with Crema. </p><p>The huge history file that accompanies this car shows it has been well-maintained all of its life and has seen the workshops of many a marque specialist, including; Maranello, Verdi Ferrari, Shiltech, and Nick Cartwright. In 2016 the car had a full service and new cambelt at Ferrari Main dealer Meridien Modena. Now indicating just 29,331 miles on the odometer, this fabulous 328 GTS is in fine condition and is supplied with a UK V5c, a fresh MoT, and its books and tools. </p><p>The 328 GTS is a wonderful classic Ferrari, eminently usable and yet offers genuinely impressive performance  This immaculate Prancing Horse is truly worthy of your attention. </p><p> </p>
