THE FERRARI 308
Ferrari’s line of highly successful V8-engined road cars began with the 308 GT4 of 1973. Originally badged as a ‘Dino’, the all-new 308 GT4 2+2 superseded the 246 Dino V6. The Dino’s Bertone penned lines were not universally praised with a slightly less-than-graceful design but the powertrain certainly was. With a 3 litre quad-cam V8 engine mounted transversely amidships it’s performance was not to be sniffed at and was subsequently carried over to it’s Pininfarina designed successor, the 308 GTB.
Originally unveiled at the Paris Auto Salon in 1975, the 308 GTB marked a return to Pininfarina design following the Bertone styled 308 GT4. Dropping the Dino name of the GT4 in favour of the ‘full fat’ Ferrari badge, the 308 GTB had changed little underneath with the exception of a reduction in both length and weight and most importantly retained its predecessor’s glorious 3 litre quad-cam V8 that now featured dry-sump lubrication.
Produced initially with fiberglass bodywork, the 308GTB used a steel only construction after April 1977 and retained dry sump lubrication until 1981. To go alongside the GTB, the open-top GTS version with a Targa-style removable roof was introduced at the 1977 Frankfurt Motor Show which used a wet sump engine and was steel-bodied.
308 production culminated in the Quattrovalvole which utilised a revised cylinder head with 4 valves per cylinder and Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection to produce a heady 237bhp on EU specification cars, despite emission control measures. They were built between 1982 and 1985 and only 3042 GTS Quattrovalves were produced making it an incredibly collectable vehicle.
To this day the 308 is still regarded as an exhilarating driver’s car and is a firm favorite among Ferrari purists.
THE SPECIFIC DETAILS
This particular 308 GTSi was completed by the Maranello Works in 1984 and supplied new to the USA. Shortly after its 10th Birthday in September 1994 the vehicle was purchased by a Mr Perry of Michigan at 48,630 miles. This was the start of a long and loving relationship including being the star of the show at Mr Perry’s wedding. The car stayed with him for the next 15 years and up to 57,460 Miles. During that time the car was impeccably maintained until back surgery brought an end to Mr Perry’s days of driving “stick” and the vehicle was put into storage.
The previous owner purchased the vehicle in 2015 and proceeded to set about a sympathetic re-commissioning process using a noted local specialist. These works included full belt service, upgrade of the air conditioning, new injectors and professional leather reconditioning.
The vehicle arrived in the UK in 2017 into Liverpool Docks where it was transported to Ferrari specialists GT Cars of Chester for inspection and pre-sale preparation.
This excellent example has, to date, covered just 57664 Miles. Accompanying the sale of the car are the original manuals, as well as the tool kit, targa cover, both keys, clean MOT certificate and jack..
As 308’s continue to mature gracefully, the Quattro valvole’s are fast becoming one of the most desirable models and this example with such lovely provenance would make a unique addition to any collection This is a very special car.

Please note this vehicle is not currently registered in the United Kingdom so the title is available for first ownership and can be directly registered to the new keeper or exported globally if required.
