Overall Comments

This is a very good example of an iconic Ferrari model, finished in traditional Rosso Corsa, which is in an excellent, well-maintained condition, ready to be enjoyed by a new admirer of the world-famous prancing horse marque. The car comes with a Ferrari fitted luggage set, a full toolkit and the original fitment alloy wheels. The car is currently located in Dorset and viewing can be arranged by appointment.


The 308 has a tube frame with separate body and both are in very good condition, the bodywork having received some minor repairs and a full respray in 2019. Being the GTS model, this car has a Targa top – a removable roof panel, which can be stowed in a vinyl cover behind the seats when not in use.


The Ferrari 308 is fitted with a transversely mounted, four-cam 3-litre V8 engine mated to a five-speed transmission. It is in excellent mechanical condition - with its most recent Ferrari-specialist service undertaken in January of this year - and drives very well. The car is fitted with 17” Compomotive alloy wheels.


The tan leather interior and black carpeting is in near spotless condition, having been re-trimmed in 2019. The car has the optional Borletti air conditioning fitted and a modern Kenwood CD unit.

Asking Price

The 308 replaced the 246 Dino in 1975 as Ferrari’s mid-engined sports car model. It was in production until 1985 when superseded by the 328, which was the last car of this iconic shape. Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti of Pininfarina (who was also responsible for the Ferrari Daytona) it was first shown at the ’75 Paris Motor Show and is still regarded today as having one of Ferrari’s most celebrated silhouettes.

The model evolved during its lifespan and the 308 Quattrovalvole, as offered here, was launched at the 1982 Paris Motor Show – with the main update being a new cylinder head, using four valves per cylinder, which increased power output to a claimed 240hp and a top speed over 150mph. The ‘QV’ also had a few small exterior and interior changes, but essentially retained the same classic appearance as the first 308.

The GTS, with its removable hard top, was also given extra exposure in the ‘80s through the US TV detective series Magnum P.I. (played by Tom Selleck), where several cars were used, often updated for each new season.

This car is an original UK-supplied RHD car, first registered in January 1984. It has been well maintained throughout its life – as witnessed by the substantial history and service folder – with the last owner undertaking considerable restoration works, including some limited body repairs; a full repaint and interior re-trim.
