About the Car

The 308, boasting one of the most recognisable silhouettes ever penned by Pininfarina, wore a markedly different design from Ferrari's first two-seat, mid-engined road car, the 246 Dino. Whilst the Dino's design was curvaceous and voluptuous, the 308's was angular, sharp, and more progressive. Regardless, the 308 was an instant hit, and its lines came to define Ferrari's late '70s and early '80s sports cars.

A few years later, Ferrari refined both the 308's design and mechanical attributes, and in 1985, they released a new model, the 328. Stylistically, the 328 was very similar to its predecessor, albeit with a few small differences. It received moulded bumpers, a slightly smaller front grille, and its most readily distinguishable feature, a small roof spoiler that was mounted just aft of the rear seats. The 328's interior received more supportive seats, along with superior ergonomics and improved general quality, which made the car's driving experience more intuitive.

Mechanically, the V-8's bore and stroke were increased, which increased capacity to 3,185 cubic centimetres. As a result, horsepower was increased to 270 brake horsepower at 7,000 rpm. This made the 328 capable of a top speed of 160 mph and a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.5 seconds.

This beautiful and all-original 328 GTS was delivered new to Michael Webb in Cornwall on 11 May 1989. The car was ordered through Nigel Mansell's Emblem Sports Cars Ltd. in Nero over a beige leather interior. Mr Webb, an avid Ferrari collector, had ordered his 328 in January of the previous year and specified it with optional air conditioning, ABS, and a rear aerofoil. Making this one of just 292 U.K cars with ABS. Once he took delivery, the car was registered as F387 WPR. As the market was rapidly rising, Webb decided to offer the car for sale the following Monday. Unfortunately, that day would later become known as "Black Monday". Even as the market crashed, Webb refused to accept a lesser offer for the car, and the sale fell through. As such, he in turn decided to store the car and wait for the market to return. Thus, the 328 was properly decommissioned, with all fluids drained and the car raised on axle stands and wrapped under cover in a heated garage, and there it would remain for the next 25 years.

Following the cars removal from storage, it was promptly recommissioned by Ferrari Specialists DK Engineering, the car changed hands a further two times in 2015 before being placed once again into long term storage in August 2016.

DK Engineering have continued to look after the car, with bills totalling over £30,000.00 for various works since 2015. The last visit was in March 2020.

The car is now offered for sale with just 594 miles showing on the odometer, and is complete with original book pack including the owners manual, tools, jack and roof cover. Along with these is an extensive file of correspondence, invoices and MOT's documenting the cars history since leaving the gates of Maranello. The car is a prime candidate for entry into national and international concours events and remains arguably the finest RHD 328 GTS left in existence today.
