Lot 162: Ferrari 308 GTBi

HISTORIC COLLECTORS MOTORCARS, Coys (29 June 2013)

Officially introduced at the Paris Salon in October 1975, the 308 GTB's styling was created by Pininfarina. The stunning two seat coachwork was all new but incorporated all of the old magic by blending aspects of the Dino 206/246 with the later 365 GT4/BB. Reminiscent of the Boxer was the dihedral groove at bumper level splitting top and bottom, the plunging nose and the sail panels reaching back to meet a shallower spoiler, while the conical side air intakes and recessed concave rear window were familiar from the Dino. The 308 GTB employed a tubular steel chassis with independent coil spring/wishbone suspension front and rear, complimented by anti-roll bars, adjustable dampers and powerful disc brakes. At is heart was a Formula One derived, all alloy, four camshaft 3.0 litre V8 engine, allied to a transversely mounted five-speed gearbox. Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical fuel injection was added for the 1980 308 GTBi and GTSi, producing 214 hp and decreasing emissions. Finished in perhaps the most stunning colour combination of black with black hide interior, this superb 308 is described by the vendor as being in excellent condition throughout. No modifications have been made apart from the fitment of a sports exhaust 2 years ago. With a history file containing a V5 document, current MoT certificate valid until February 2014, the all important original books as well as maintenance records which includes the recent addition of new suspensions bushings, this is an excellent, affordable example of Maranello's most popular and practical mid-engined GT car.
