 Launched at the 1980 Geneva Auto Salon, the Mondial was the first Ferrari to depart from the company’s familiar three-digit naming scheme and its name was inspired by their famous Mondial sports-racers from the fifties. The Mondial saw Ferrari return to Pininfarina as its choice of styling house, and it was sold as a mid-sized coupé and, eventually, a cabriolet. Conceived as a 'more usable' model, offering the practicality of four seats with the performance of a mid-range Ferrari and hopefully attracting a slightly wider audience than their traditionally more focused two-seaters. The car was not built as a monocoque in a conventional way, but instead, the steel outer body was produced by the famous Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Scaglietti, just down the road in nearby Modena and clothed a lightweight steel box-section space frame. The Mondial was the first Ferrari where the entire engine/gearbox/rear suspension assembly was mounted on a detachable steel sub-frame, making engine removal for a major rebuild or cylinder head removal much easier than it had been on earlier models. Introduced in 1989, the Ferrari Mondial 3.4 T was the 'spearhead for a new generation of V8 Ferraris' and the final version of the Mondial. The 'T' was a reference to the new engine and transmission layout that now saw the engine mounted longitudinally with the gearbox transverse (forming a T), a characteristic of their Formula 1 '312T' which had just won the 1989 World Championship. This set-up would become the standard for all future mid-engined V8 Ferraris beginning with the 348 and continuing through to the 360. This particular 1992 Mondial 3.4T has been with its current owner for the last four years during which time it has undergone a significant restoration. Upon acquiring the vehicle it was sent to Maranello Egham who carried out a timing belt service and engine tune in March 2015. After that, all further work was carried out by GTO Engineering in Reading with documentation and photographs showing the detail. The car's History File appears to be comprehensive and has virtually all of its MoT Certificates from the first on 31st July 1995. The most recent Timing Belt service was carried out by GTO in March 2018. The speedometer was replaced at 12,337 miles (fully documented) and the current reading is 39,579 so in total the car has covered almost 52,000 miles with less than a 1,000 of these during the last four years.Some of the significant work carried out by GTO:Replace all Parts Front suspensionReplace all parts Rear SuspensionReplace all parts Front BrakesReplace all parts Rear BrakesReplace Radiator'Connollise' interiorReplace AlternatorReplace Fuel TankNew set Pirelli TyresAll wheels refurbishedIt is believed to be one of only 47 sold in the UK in right-hand drive making it quite rare and is undoubtedly one of the best on the market. The distinctive Ferrari-related cherished plate is included in the price and, at today's attractive guide price and in this lovely condition, this car represents great value and opens the door to Ferrari ownership.
