Introduced in 1975 the 308 GTB was the direct descendent of the Dino. The 308's body was designed by Pininfarina's Leonardo Fioravanti, who had been responsible for some of Ferrari's most celebrated shapes to date, including the Daytona, the Dino and the Berlinetta Boxer.The first production GTB rolled off the assembly line with a body made of fibreglass. Ferrari were unsure if they would register enough interest with the model, and so tested the waters with fibreglass which could be made more cost-effectively in small numbers. The instant success of the Vetroresina meant that they would indeed tool up to build the car in steel.The engine was a 3 litre 90 degree V8, with belt-driven twin overhead camshafts per cylinder bank. It was transversely mounted in unit with the transaxle transmission assembly, which was below and to the rear of the engine's sump. All models used a fully synchromeshed 5-speed manual and a clutch-type limited slip differential. Suspension was all-independent.The early cars and Fibreglass cars were equipped with carburettors and a dry sump, however in late 1979 the cars started to feature a wet sump and then in 1980 Ferrari made the leap to Bosch K-Jetronic mechanical fuel injection in order to meet ever more tricky U.S. emission standards. Clearly, Enzo Ferrari did not want to go this route as the race cars of the day retained carburettors. This change had several resulting effects to the 308. For one, it lost the intoxicating intake howl of the Webers.This superb example was delivered in May 1977 and is the penultimate car of just 154 RHD cars delivered to the United Kingdom. Specified in Rosso Corsa over a Magnolia Connolly Hide. Optional extras include air conditioning and sought after wide wheels. In January 1980 it was purchased by Neil Thomas, who remarkably remained the keeper for over 30 years. During this most cherished ownership period it was maintained with no expense spared and in circa 2010 underwent a comprehensive cosmetic and mechanical overhaul. During this time the car was converted to run using unleaded fuel as well as having new crank shells and piston rings fitted by Superformance. The metal underbody was thoroughly repainted and waxoiled to ensure that it remained in fine order.Mr Thomas later sold the GTB in October 2012 to its current keeper having covered only 43,712 Miles from new. During its most recent tenure it has been exercised sparingly and has today covered under 46,700 Miles. Prior to its sale DK Engineering have completed a comprehensive major service including cambelts and various works totalling over £10,000. This 308 GTB is a rare lightweight Ferrari and a genuine opportunity to add a spirited prancing horse to your stable. The car is available to view at our showrooms based just outside London.
