This stunning example of the Ferrari 328GTS was manufactuered in September 1989, G Registered. Finished in Rosso Corsa with Crema Hide. This truly is a great investment opportunity with a mere 284 Miles (458km) which still currently has the delivery stickers on the front drivers side wheel and spare wheel. This has 2 owner + 1 UK Owners that has not registered the car in his name.
Supplied new by SA.MO.CAR S.p.a. of Rome, this exceptional 328 GTS is understood to have changed hands immediately thereafter for twice its list price such was the `gold fever' surrounding Maranello's more sought after models in the late 1980s! Unfortunately, the following decade brought with it a global recession which decimated values. Rather than face a sizeable loss, the Ferrari's second owner chose to place it into professional storage. Fast forward twenty-four years, and with prices back at pre-crash levels, he had the two-seater recommissioned by Ferrari Rome before selling it to the vendor. Forming part of a significant private collection since then, chassis 81550 is warranted to have covered just 455km (283 miles) from new. A true `time warp', the 328 GTS still has delivery stickers affixed to its driver's side front and spare wheels. Both inner sills carry plastic protective covers and the internal trunking which draws air from the side vents to the engine has yet to discolour. As well as its original tool kit, jack and Goodyear tyres, the Ferrari boasts a spare bulb kit, torch and Prancing Horse logoed Red bag.
Understandably described by the seller as `nigh on as new', this is the lowest mileage 328 GTS we have encountered. A worthy addition to any serious marque collection, chassis 81550 has recently been entrusted to Dick Lovett Ltd for a £5,000 cambelt service and brake overhaul etc should a new owner wish to have some appreciation for what it would have felt to drive a `showroom fresh' Ferrari thirty years ago!

The Ferrari 328 GTB and GTS (Type F106) was the successor to the Ferrari 308 GTB and GTS. While largely based on the 308 GTB and GTS respectively, small modifications were made to the body style and engine, including an increase in engine displacement to 3.2 L (3185 cc). 7,400 Ferrari 328s were produced by the time the model was replaced by the new 348 in 1989, bringing the total for the 308/328 generation to nearly 20,000. The 328 is considered by some Ferrari enthusiasts to be one of the most reliable Ferraris; unlike some models, most engine maintenance can be performed without lowering the engine from the vehicle.
The GTB referred to the Gran Turismo Berlinetta (coupé) body while the GTS was a Gran Turismo Spider (targa top). In 1985, the 328 retailed from £43,999.37
The 328 GTS model, together with the fixed roof 328 GTB, were the final developments of the normally aspirated transverse V8 engine 2-seat series. The 328 figures in the model title referred to the total cubic capacity of the engine, 3.2 litres, and 8 for the number of cylinders. The new model was introduced at the 1985 Frankfurt Salon alongside the Mondial 3.2 series.
