Introduced at the 1985 Frankfurt Auto Show, the 328 was created to replace the Ferrari 308. Although the greenhouse remained unchanged, by smoothing out some of the 308 ’ s more angular lines, Pininfarina managed to modernize the 328 and improve its aerodynamic efficiency. In GTS guise, the vinyl-covered fiberglass roof section was simply carried over from the 308.

The chassis utilized conventional – and well-proven – Ferrari practice, based on twin oval-section main tubes. Tipping the scales at 1435 kgs, the 328 GTS was considerably lighter than its predecessor. This allowed the 90° Ferrari V-8, which had been bored and stroked to gain 200cc of displacement over the 308, to propel the car from standstill to 100km/h in under six seconds. Also, something of a rarity, through well-planned gearing and with 270bhp on tap, the 328 was fully capable of reaching redline in top gear, which made it an exceptionally entertaining car to drive vigorously.

The Ferrari 328 GTS offered here - finished in red with a black leather interior fitted with red carpets - is a totally original, unrestored example in excellent condition. Purchased new in 1986, the car received its 5,000km, scheduled service in November of the same year. In the last 20 years the Ferrari has amassed just over 800kms, having been properly stored in the collection of its first and only owner. Having resided its entire life in France, the GTS is VAT paid, EEC registered and its condition remains excellent. The Ferrari comes complete with a full set of books in the original leather wallet, a complete set of tools in their original case, and the original jack in its pouch.

Recently treated to a complete mechanical service and detailing, this Ferrari is in outstanding condition both mechanically and visually. It is almost entirely original, and given its history of care and attention, ready to be enjoyed.
