With a name reminiscent of the 500 Mondial race cars from the 1950s, the Ferrari Mondial was a replacement model for the Ferrari 308 GT4. The Mondial was the first Ferrari where the entire engine, gearbox and rear suspension assembly was mounted on a detachable steel subframe, making engine removal for a major rebuild or cylinder head removal much easier than it was on previous models. The steel coachwork was taken care of by Carrozzeria Scaglietti and built over a lightweight steel box section space frame. The Mondial 8 is considered one of the marque's most practical vehicles.
Originally registered on 12th November 1986, this Ferrari Mondial is presented in metallic grey with lovely Crema trim which is in good condition. The car presents well and is offered with many invoices from Superformance and a stamped service booklet combined with all but one MoT test certificate since 1991. Fitted with a sports exhaust which gives this wonderful 32 valve Ferrari the sound of a Formula 1 car, combined with the practicality of four seats. Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a history file containing the original service book, owner’s manual and invoices within the leather-bound folder. Accompanied by an MoT test certificate valid until July 2022, this is an appreciating classic which we believe to be one of only three UK cars presented in this colour combination and boasting the desirable 3.2 litre Quattrovalvole engine. The vendor has addressed several issues that were present when he purchased the car and the impressive list of works done is present in the file. These include considerable work to the ignition and electronics giving this Ferrari a new lease of life. A job relocation is the reason for the reluctant sale by the vendor.
