Original service wallet, book pack, tool kit, jack kit and standard exhaustEnticinglyoffered at No reserve one for the true Ferrari enthusiast to use and enjoyOctober 1975, saw the debut at the Paris Motor Show of the most successful shape ever to wear the Cavallino Rampante emblem, the Ferrari 308, and during its comparativelylong production run from 1975-89, the model was consistently popular and kept the factory busy.This new car was constructed on a traditional steel tube chassis, but its beautiful body was initially manufactured in GRP before,after two years, Scaglietti started making GTBs in steel. The 3-litre, four-cam V8 was more or less unchanged until March 1981 when Bosch fuel injection was added in place of the 4 double-choke Webers, reducing the engine's power output significantly, although the final drive was altered on these cars to give similar acceleration to acarburettorcar. Two years later, the 4-valve per cylinder Quattrovalvole or 'QV' model pushed output back up to 240 hp restoring the status quo.European-spec cars boasted higher horsepower than cars built for the American market and were somewhat lighter. Only 3,042 Spider Quattrovalvoleswere produced,with just 230 RHD examples supplied to the UK and they are considered by many to be the most desirable of all the 308 variations as they are the fastest and most subtly styled with a deep front valance, racing mirrors, and short lightweight bumpers.This lovely GTS (Spider)is classically finished in Rosso Corsa with Magnolia leather and Bordeaux carpets. The paintwork and coachwork are exactly as you might hope to find and the timeless looks of this 45-year-old design are complemented by the deep front valance and optional roof-mounted aerofoil. It has been part of one family since 1987 untiljoining our vendor's collection last yearand is accompanied by a greathistory file. The substantiallydocumented currentmileage is 41,046 and within the file is an invoice from highly regarded marque expertsKent High Performance, dated February 2019, for a full cambelt and substantial service to include rebuilt Koni shocks, rebuilt heater, alloy wheel refinish with new tyres and more at 40,941 miles with less than 110 miles travelled since.Presented with the car is its original wallet containing the service books and manuals documenting the cars excellent service history and a folder containing a number of bills/invoices detailing attention over the years. The tool kit and jack appear original andthestandard factory exhaust looks quite at home.In superb condition for its age and mileage, this rare right-hand drive, QV Spider has patently been well looked after and is a fantastic example of the ultimate evolution of the 308. Enticinglyoffered at No Reserve, its one for the true Ferrari enthusiast to use and enjoy.1985 Ferrari 308 GTS QVhttps://youtu.be/88eqMy4VD1Afalse
