About this Ferrari 308

Finished in its stunning factory correct colour combination of Argento Auteil Metallic exterior with contrasting Rosso Hide and Rosso carpets. This certified matching numbers outstanding Ferrari 308 GTS was ordered new through Maranello of Egham for Coopers in February 1980 for a total list price of £19,253.49. The car included additional factory options of air conditioning, deep front spoiler and wide alloy wheels. Prior to registration, the car was displayed by Maranello Concessionaires at the 1980 London Motorshow. It was then delivered to Coopers of Leicester in December and supplied to its first keeper in February 1981 by Modena Engineering. We are now offering this immaculate and factory correct, late restored carburettor model 308 GTS from a private collector who has recently completed a thorough and comprehensive restoration. The car comes with great service history up until 1990, when we have been informed it was taken of the road and put into long term dry storage. Our client purchased the car shortly after it’s comprehensive bare metal respray by the previous owner. This work was carried out by the same company and to a very high standard that had also restored four our clients Dino’s and his Daytona. The engine had also been fully rebuilt prior to his purchase. He then carried out a detailed and comprehensive refurbishment of all components, parts and ancillary items. The entire interior was fully re-trimmed to the highest standards and the car painstakingly reassembled to factory finish throughout. The car comes with a comprehensive photographic history of all aspects of work carried out and is available to view through the link below. The car was completed in September this year and is now ready for sale. This 308 GTS comes complete with its original toolkit, original Jack with bag, original service booklet and wallet, owners manual and spare wheel. This rare car is 1 of only 184 UK RHD carburettor model cars produced. The car is now offered in stunning factory correct condition both inside and out. Viewing is highly recommended. For additional information or to discuss this car, please contact our sales team. Viewing by appointment only.
