Description

The Mondial revived a name from Ferrari's past and was a mid-engined 2+2 seater manufactured from 1980 to 1993. A successor to the Bertone penned 308 GT4, it was designed by Pininfarina. The construction was unconventional, with the steel outer body outsourced to Carrozzeria Scaglietti mated to a lightweight steel box-section chassis - the bonnet and boot lids were formed in aluminium. Another unusual feature of the car was that the engine, five-speed manual gearbox and rear suspension were all mounted on a detachable steel subframe for ease of servicing and repair. Suspension was independent all round by wishbones and coil springs, the braking by discs and the steering by rack and pinion.

One of just 145 Ferrari Mondial 8 Coupes made to right-hand drive specification, chassis 39817 is finished in Rosso Corsa with Beige leather upholstery. Offered from a deceased estate in garage find condition 'RET 295X' has been in family owned since 2003 and is understood to have last run some c.3 years ago. Displaying 48,598 miles 'RET 295X' is offered with its original book pack with handbooks and service book plus a collection of old invoices, MOT certificates plus tool roll and a current V5C document.
