Foskers are pleased to bring this original, right-hand-drive 308 GTB to market.
Manufactured by Ferrari SpA, Maranello in 1977, this example was then delivered to Maranello Concessionaires Ltd for use as their press car - making it the first steel 308 GTB demonstrator.
A 'carburettor car' with the desirable dry-sump engine, 79 was the last year Ferrari would offer carburetted cars with their distinctive burbling sound and higher horsepower than fuel injection cars that followed in 1980. Production continued only through 1979 during which time there is rumored to be just circa 211 RHD steel bodied, dry sump carburetted 308 GTB's that were produced for the UK market.
It is finished in its original colour combination of Rosso Chiaro on Nero hide, and supplied with the desirable dry-sump engine and factory air conditioning.
A substantial and well-known history file accompanies this Ferrari 308 GTB, authenticating it as a very well maintained example – with the jack kit, tool roll, original factory book pack and service book also supplied with the car.
The original space saver spare wheel with working zip cover is still in place.
Just like its GT4 forebear, the Ferrari 308 GTB’s flexible 3.0-litre V8, space-frame chassis and independent suspension enable it to play the part of a fast yet comfortable cruiser, as well as a full-bodied Ferrari sports car.
