The 308 replaced the 246 Dino in 1975 as Ferrari’s mid engine sports car. It was in production until 1985 when superseded by the 328 which was the last car of this iconic shape. Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti of Pininfarina (who was also responsible for the Ferrari Daytona) it was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1975 and still today it is recognised as one of Ferrari’s most celebrated shapes. Fitted with Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical fuel injection the 308 GTSi, produced 235 hp slightly less than the earlier carburettor cars. Decreasing emissions was a necessary requirement as regulations changed worldwide, especially the larges market in the USA. The 2.9Ltr V8 engine was coupled with a 5 speed all synchromesh gearbox propelling the car to in excess of 155 MPH with 0-60 times of 7.8 seconds. Greater performance is possible by removing the energy sapping catalytic converters and returning the car to European specification, which we are doing. This car, notable with its removable hard top, was made famous, not just by its track prowess but by the US TV detective series Magnum P.I. as driven by Tom Selleck, who had a number of the evolving models including the GTSi in the TV program. This Ferrari 308 was supplied new to the USA and includes optional extras such as fuel injection, 5 speed manual transmission, air conditioning, tinted glass, and a Californian emissions package. With the same owner for the last 11 years and only covering some 2500 miles in that time.
 
 
 
Recently imported from the dry state of California and therefore a rust free example. Major service and mechanical work is just being undertaken to ensure an excellent running motorcar. Values for these cars are presently rocketing and this car is fairly priced and is certainly good investment potential.
 
A rust free motor car in excellent condition that presents well however if one wants to be fussy it would benefit from paintwork attention to enhance its condition (and value).
 
 
 
Original interior clean and presentable with correct removable hard top roof.
 
Driving very well with the fuel injection system recently overhauled plus a new steering rack fitted, new and correct Michelin XVX tyres x4, new exhaust without catalytic converters (as per the Californian spec), major service and cam belt change.
