Introduced in October 1975 at the Paris Salon, the 308GTB was an important car not just for Ferrari but for stylists Pininfarina as well. Keen to re-establish their monopoly on the Prancing Horse, they strove to produce a truly iconic design. In the eyes of many, they succeeded and certainly Maranello have not strayed since. Initially clad with glassfibre panels the 308GTB adopted steel bodywork in 1977. Carrying its transversely-mounted 3.0 litre, V8 engine and five-speed manual gearbox amidships, the model's excellent handling was extensively praised by the contemporary motoring press. Gaining a 'Spider' sibling two years after launch, growing environmental concerns saw the 'junior' supercar adopt Bosch fuel injection in March 1981 at the cost of some forty horsepower. Worried about the consequent loss of performance, Maranello executive, Eugenio Alzati, resolved to give the 90-degree 'quad-cam' 2926cc unit its teeth back. Announced in October 1982, the new QV or 'quattrovalvole' variant was a revelation. Sporting - as its name suggests - four-valve cylinder heads, it was credited with developing some 240bhp and 192lbft of torque. Emissions friendly, it nevertheless boasted less noise, more power and better throttle response than its predecessor. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.7 seconds and 158mph, the QV cars once again had the raw speed to match their sublime looks. The new model could be recognised by the addition of a slim louvered panel in the front lid to aid radiator exhaust air exit, power operated mirrors carrying a small enamel Ferrari badge and a redesigned radiator grille with rectangular driving lights on each side. The interior also received some minor updates, such as a satin black three spoke steering wheel with triangular centre and cloth seat centres became available as an option to the standard full leather.

Originally a righthand drive example supplied by Greypaul, this Quattrovalvole was purchased by the vendor in 2008 and subsequently restored over a number of years. The body, drivetrain and engine were all overhauled  with new paint and replacement parts wherever required. The interior is in excellent condition and it sits on slightly larger, although genuine, wheels and tyres. The original are also included in the sale. The extremely low mileage recorded is believed to be genuine and checks correctly against older paperwork and receipts. It comes complete with an MoT test certificate valid until September 2016 with no advisories as well as its most recent outing at the 2012 Ferrari Owners' Club Concours D'elegance where it scored 82.89%. The service history book is also including showing regular visits during the first five years of its life. Specialist maintenance then took over and just this month it underwent a full major service (with cambelts) at Ferrari specialist, Autofficina in Surrey. This much loved example is priced competitively and represents the most advanced 'four valves per cylinder' technology to go into this model not to mention one of the most provocative profiles in Ferrari's design history.
