Cortese – Bath are delighted to present the opportunity to purchase an outstanding Ferrari Mondial 3.0 Quattrovalvole. Presented in Rosso with Nero Hide interior the last owner has uniquely kept the car as original as possible, right down to the early in-car mobile phone unit! With only 152 Right Hand Drive examples officially imported into the UK from a total factory production run of 1145, many are hard to come by in such clean condition. The Mondial QV, launched in 1982, was the improved version of the Mondial 8, launched only a year before. Feeling a little under-powered the 32 valve QV boasted the total horsepower by an additional increase of 26bhp, totaling 240bhp. This was mainly felt over and above 2000rpm. With a 2650mm wheelbase, Pininfarina’s mission was to design a 4 seater. They succeed and all occupants can enjoy the pleasant and light environment in individual Connolly leather bucket seats. Internally the Mondial QV replicates the 1980’s seeking for new toys. Instruments are laid out in uniform, a new 2 way steering wheel allowing tilt and rake and switches laid out where you expect them to be. Design and build is solid and shows a bit more reserve that the excessive 80’s were thought to be! (Even if it does have an original early mobile phone unit installed into the dash.) Storage is ample with a large exterior boot and of course the back seats if un-occupied. At the front under the bonnet is a full size spare wheel and breakdown kit. Although enthusiasm for the early 2 2 Ferrari’s was proving to be limited at time of release, recent interest in the Mondial 8’s and QV’s has grown substantially. These two cars carry a lot of the design cues that Ferrari then developed and expanded upon on many of its latter models, namely it s more famous cousin the Testarossa. Large rear wheel, side air intake vents, flare the rear hind quarters up and out and dictate the look of the side elevation. Performance wise the QV exceeds the original 8, and the extra horsepower shows. Feed back from the steering wheel is compliant to road underneath and the car is easy to read. The exhaust note is pleasant, helped that the unit was replaced in 2007. This particular example has been thoroughly maintained with a healthy service history file to accompany the car. A viewing is strongly recommended.
