Perhaps one of the most recognisable designs ever penned for Ferrari by Pininfarina is that of the 308. The 308 was much different from Ferrari’s first two-seat, mid-engined road car, the 246 Dino, as its design was angular, sharp and more forward thinking. Nevertheless, the 308 was an instant hit and it came to define late ’70s and early ’80s sports cars. As successful as the 308 was, Ferrari’s engineers found ways to refine its design and mechanics without losing the flair that defined it. What emerged was a car that was improved in every aspect; a car that could stand tall amongst its siblings; that car was the 328. The Ferrari 328 exhibited several subtle differences from its predecessor, including moulded bumpers, a slightly smaller front grille and a roof spoiler. Pininfarina’s designers also smoothed out the shape of the body to make it appear slightly less aggressive overall. Inside, Ferrari introduced new and more supportive seats and refined ergonomics with improved general quality to make the car’s driving experience more intuitive. Mechanically, overall capacity was raised to 3186cc through increasing the bore and stroke which helped to bring maximum horsepower to 270 at 7000rpm. It could also reach a top speed of 160mph and travel from 0–60 in a brisk 5.5 seconds.
This genuine right hand drive Ferrari was originally registered on 1st May 1987 and has covered 44,865 miles since. These super stylish machines are magnificent to look at and even more fun to drive. The vendor has only used this Ferrari sparingly under his stewardship and has therefore decided to sell her. Finished in the traditional colour combination of Rosso Corsa and Crema interior and sitting on a well-shod set of tyres this 328 GTS is a perfect car for the summer ahead. Supplied with a V5C registration document and a current MoT test certificate, interested parties should note that this vehicle was subject to a Category C insurance claim in 1996.
