"With a name reminiscent of the 500 Mondial race cars from the 1950s, the Ferrari Mondial was a replacement model for the Ferrari 308 GT4. The Mondial was the first Ferrari where the entire engine, gearbox and rear suspension assembly was mounted on a detachable steel subframe, making engine removal for a major rebuild or cylinder head removal much easier than it was on previous models. The steel coachwork was taken care of by Carrozzeria Scaglietti and built over a lightweight steel box section space frame. The Mondial 8 is considered one of the marque's most ‘practical’ vehicles, due to its 214hp, proven drivetrain, four seats and relatively low cost of maintenance; major services can be performed without removing the entire engine/transmission subframe. Originally registered on 5th January 1988, this Ferrari Mondial is owned by a knowledgeable classic car enthusiast. We are advised E549 FRO drives well and is supplied with the original service books, together with a comprehensive history folder. Finished in the most popular and traditional colour combination of Rossa Corsa with Crema interior and fitted with a sunroof, this righthand drive Ferrari Mondial GTB comes with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate valid until 14th March 2020; the Mondial range has become increasingly popular of late as the market realises what an underrated car this is"
