Introduced at the Paris Auto Salon in 1975, the contemporary styled 308 GTB - Ferrari's second V8 road car - marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed 308 GT4. Badged as a 'proper' Ferrari rather than a Dino, the 308 GTB had changed little mechanically apart from a reduction in both wheelbase and weight, retaining its predecessor's underpinnings and transversely mounted engine that now featured dry-sump lubrication. In road tune this superbly engineered power unit produced 255bhp, an out-put good enough to propel the 308 GTB to a top speed of over 150mph.
Produced initially with fiberglass bodywork - the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari - the Scaglietti-built 308 GTB used steel after April 1977. Further developments included the introduction of an open-top GTS version with Targa-style removable roof, the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and, finally, revised cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder on the Quattrovalvole (QV) model in 1982. An exhilarating driver's car and a Ferrari purist's delight, the 308 GTSi and its many derivatives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello, with over 12,000 sold.
Our car was built in Maranello in September 1980, was sold new by F.A.F Motorcars of Tucker, Georgia, to its first owner, the wealthy philanthropist Hilary Boone, of Naples, Florida. The car was serviced in the name of his son, Alex Boone, who we can imagine stealing the keys at every opportunity! The date of delivery was 13th March 1981. Little more than a year later in 1982, a replacement engine was fitted by Ferrari North America at 8k Miles! We have a Full history for the car from new, which is incredibly rare for a US car, and the original service book. The car arrived in the UK in 2015, has had a full Euro Bumper Conversion, and had a full Cambelt service in 2016 from the supercar rooms, and has covered less than 500 miles since. There is an MOT until October 2021 with no advisories, the car has been restored in the past few years as the paintwork is beautiful and the interior very nice, although the drivers seat needs a good clean. This pretty Ferrari presents really well and is in excellent overall condition. This is a great introduction to classic Ferraris!
