Although the much-loved Ferrari Dino 246 GT was replaced in 1973 by the all-new Dino 308 GT4, Ferrari's first ever V8 engined production model, its Bertone styling and 2 2 seating received mixed reactions; it was not until 1975, when the 308 GTB was launched at the Paris Show, that aficionados of the marque felt the 246's true successor had arrived.

The 308 GTB employed a tubular steel chassis with independent coil spring/wishbone suspension front and rear, complimented by anti-roll bars, adjustable dampers and powerful disc brakes. At is heart was a Formula One derived, all alloy, four camshaft 3.0 litre V8 engine, allied to a transversely mounted five-speed gearbox. Pininfarina's stunning two seat coachwork combined the best features of the 246 and the later 356GT4/BB and looked just right. Producing 255bhp at 7,700rpm and 201lb.ft of torque at 5,500rpm from 2,926cc, it was also very quick with 154mph top speed and 0-60mph acceleration in just 6.5 seconds.

For 1977 the GTS model with a targa top was introduced. The GTS proved a big success, outselling the GTB to which it offered similar performance combined with the joys of open top motoring.

This left-hand drive 308GTS has had only two owners since new, and the vendor advises us that it has benefited from considerable refurbishment including a complete engine rebuild undertaken in December 1986. The interior was later renewed in 1990, and in 1993 the car was completely repainted. The car also benefits from a new clutch, which was fitted in 1998.

Finished in Rosso Corsa with black interior, the car is accompanied by sundry restoration invoices, service bills and French Carte Grise.

Questa 308GTS con guida a sinistra ha avuto due soli proprietari e il venditore ci informa che ha beneficiato di una considerevole manutenzione ricostruttiva in particolare del motore rifatto nel dicembre 1986. Gli interni invece sono stati rinnovati nel 1990, mentre nel 1993 Ŕ stata riverniciata. Nel 1998 le Ŕ stata montata una frizione nuova.

Rifinita in Rosso Corsa con interni neri, viene offerta insieme alle fatture dei lavori di restauro, come di manutenzione e la Carte Grise francese.
