*Ultimate Quattrovalvole model
*Present ownership since 1992
*Recent (August 2020) cam-belt service


Introduced at the Paris Salon in 1975, the stunningly beautiful 308 GTB - Ferrari's second V8-engined road car - marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed 308 GT4 that had launched this highly successful series in 1973. Badged as a 'proper' Ferrari rather than a Dino, the 308 GTB had changed little mechanically apart from a reduction in both wheelbase and weight, retaining its predecessor's underpinnings and transversely mounted 3-litre quad-cam engine that now featured dry-sump lubrication. In road tune this superbly engineered power unit produced 255bhp, an output good enough to propel the 308 GTB to a top speed of over 150mph. Further developments included the introduction of an open-top GTS version with Targa-style removable roof; the adoption of Bosch fuel injection; and, finally, cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder on the Quattrovalvole (QV) model.
Representing the 308 in its ultimate, Quattrovalvole form, this GTS was sold new via H R Owen in London and has belonged to the vendor, believed its fourth owner, since 1992. The car benefits from recent (August 2020) expenditure of £3,500 on a full cam-belt service and general check-over. Noteworthy features include up-rated fuse boxes and electric window boosters. In the vendor's own words; "this is a genuine and honest vehicle that has been very well maintained".
