Classic Car Overview

Ferrari upholds the standard for Italian excellence, designing and building cars that are unique in terms of their performance, innovations, technology, driving pleasure, and design. This according to Interbrand in their Global Brand report for 2019. Indeed, most would agree that the name Ferrari carries plenty of clout in the automotive world. Owners of other cars may be most envious of this; the car comes with a Heritage Certificate (Certificato di Identificazione) from the manufacturer stating, We hereby certify that the reference numbers of the mechanical units supplied correspond with those equipping the car when it left the factory. Think of the import of that! This was issued in 2005 and no major changes have been made since to this beautiful, low mileage (@ 36,460 miles) Ferrari. Even so, the fact that a 1979 Ferrari 308 GTS was the vehicle of choice for season one of the TV hit Magnum PI provided the same boost in fame and prestige as with other movie and TV cars. This fine example is powered by its original 2.9L Dual Overhead Cam V8. It is naturally aspirated with 4 Weber 40 DCNF carbs providing the mixture. The engine is capable of winding past 7000 rpm, and the exhaust note is intoxicating as with all Ferraris. A fully synchronized 5-speed manual transaxle with a limited slip differential sends the power to the rear wheels. Rich black paint along with the red leather interior is an appropriately sporting yet sophisticated color combination. The 308 GTS is a targa with a removable black vinyl-covered roof panel. Pininfarinas famed designer Leonardo Fioravanti penned the now iconic shape. (Leonardo also created the design for the Berlinetta Boxer, the Dino, and the Daytona.) The car is built on a tube frame with a fully independent suspension and four-wheel vented disc brakes. Weighing in at a lithe 3225 lbs (1463kg), the 308 GTS, with its mid-engine configuration is a fine handling car. Theres something else very special with this package. Its truly delightful to find the original tool kit with the vehicle. Certainly these items are useful, but their Italy stamping, the container pouches, and excellent condition also add value and collectibility to what is already a desirable automobile. Inclusion of the aforementioned Heritage Certificate, the original owners manual, and meticulously detailed and presented service records since 2005 are also clear evidence that the car was in good hands. It comes equipped with a Blaupunkt AM/FM Cassette system with equalizer for those times when youre standing still. With the engine off. Ferrari has maintained the integrity of its brand as well as any company in the world. The mission is always clear when a new Ferrari is introduced. Make it better and faster. Ferrari.com says it best. On this occasion, intensive research and development focused on exploiting Ferraris wealth of track-derived engineering know-how has produced a car designed to offer its drivers both benchmark performance across the board and the most riveting and rewarding driving experience possible.
