About the Car

Introduced at the Paris Auto Salon in 1975, the contemporary styled 308 GTB, Ferrari's second V8 road car, marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed 308 GT4. Badged as a 'proper' Ferrari rather than a Dino, the 308 GTB had changed little mechanically apart from a reduction in both wheelbase and weight, retaining its predecessor's underpinnings and transversely mounted engine that now featured dry-sump lubrication. In road tune this superbly engineered power unit produced 255bhp, an out-put good enough to propel the 308 GTB to a top speed of over 150mph. An exhilarating driver's car and a Ferrari purist's delight, the 308 and its many derivatives proved a huge commercial success for Maranello. This particular example was supplied new to the U.K by Ritchies of Glasgow and is one of just 365 U.K supplied RHD cars.

Registered in January 1979. This fantastic example is finished in the very rare colour combination of Nero over Crema hide. The vehicle has been in single ownership for the past 14 years having significant sums spent on it to the tune of some £30,000 , meaning that this is one of the finest mechanical examples available today and has to be driven to be truly appreciated. Prior to its most recent owner the car again was kept in single ownership for a lengthy period of time being purchased in August 1996 until sale in July 2004. The most recent owner not only maintained regular engine services but spent vast amounts of capital on maintenance of electrical systems and importantly continued maintenance of the under carriage.

The vehicle comes complete with a comprehensive history file detailing almost every pound spend on the car since new. The files also contains MOT certificates dating back to 1982. With invoices totalling over £50,000.

The car comes complete with original service book, 2 keys and original odometer.

A brand new set of the correct Michelin XWX tyres were fitted to the car in July 2017.

Private registration of DDZ 308 is included in sale.
