Lot 123: Ferrari 328 GTS

HISTORIC COLLECTORS MOTORCARS, Coys (29 June 2013)

The Ferrari 328 can be seen as the ultimate development of the line which began with the 246 GT Dino; its design source can not only be seen in the mechanical specification but in its delightful styling too. Race-bred independent suspension at each corner endowed this Ferrari with enviable poise and dynamic handling, while the mid mounted 260bhp 3.2 litre V8 engine propelled it to over 150mph with a 0-60mph time of just six seconds. Though not having the ultimate performance of its elder brother, the 288 GTO, the 328 earned itself a reputation for its all-round ability. Here was a car that was capable of being driven with complete docility round town, but possessing the potential to see off virtually all opposition on a fast twisty road. When it came time to replace the 328 the task was enormous; the 328 had been by far the most popular model to leave Maranello, a perfect combination of practicality and performance. This 328 GTS was imported in 1998 by the current vendor, who has owned the car since as part of his collection. Used sparingly and well maintained E493 CGN has just been subject to work totalling 4,500 by a well-known Ferrari Specialist. Mechanically in fine fettle, the vendor describes the red coachwork to be in the same condition. Complete with a large variety of invoices, bills and receipts, E493 CGN comes complete with its original sales invoice. Displaying just over 50,000 km from new, this 88' model year 328 is ready for summer use. With prices of 512 BBi's now soaring well into the 150k mark, these late 80's 328's are sure to follow suit. Don't miss this one.
