This is a really affordable entry level Ferrari and also one of the best loved from any era. It is a 1982 Ferrari 308 GTSi, Left hand Drive, US Car, finished in Red with Black Leather it looks and drives superbly, it has recently had a £5,000 Cambelt Service and thorough check over and is ready for the summer.

Ferrari's line of highly successful V8-engined road cars began with the 308 GT4 of 1973. Badged as a 'Di-no', the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 superseded the preceding Dino V6. The newcomer's wedge-shaped styling - by Bertone rather than the customary Pininfarina - was not universally well received but there were no complaints about the performance of the 3.0-liter quad-cam V8 engine, which was carried over to its successor.

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 intro-duction 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 deriva-tives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello, with over 12,000 sold.

Our car is finished in the perfect colour scheme and was imported from the US in 2013. It is showing 10k Miles but due to the lack of service history this cannot be verified. It had a full service and checkover less than 1000 miles ago and is now ready for its next owner. I don't think there is a cheaper way into 308 ownership, let alone a Targa Top GTSi, which provides real wind in the hair motoring! It comes with its owners handbook and pouch and original Sales Brochure, it is UK registered with all EU Taxes Paid.

Please be quick at the asking price, there will not be a better car cheaper anywhere.
