The magnificent 1980 Ferrari 308 GTBi featured here is finished in the factory correct shade of Rosso Chiaro over a black Connolly leather interior. This particular example was completed at the Maranello works in August 1980 and was sold new through F.A.F. motorcars in Georgia to an Ohio dealer. Available records show that the 308 was still registered in Ohio as late as 1995 with a recorded 3,256 miles. By 2011, the Ferrari was in Florida with only 400 more miles added to the odometer. Today this desirable Ferrari 308 GTBi presents wonderfully with only 4,208 miles present on the odometer. The original warranty and service book verifies that the 2.9 liter DOHC V8 engine is numbers matching and the original owner’s manual, service records, tool kit, jack and original window sticker also accompany this investment caliber 308. We are proud to offer this outstanding 1980 Ferrari 308 GTBi to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates low mileage and accompanying documentation.

History of the Ferrari 308
Introduced at the Paris Motor Show as the replacement for the Dino 246 in 1975, the 308 has a solid place in Ferrari history. Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti, who had previously penned the 365 Daytona for Pininfarina, the 308 quickly won over many enthusiasts for both its looks and performance. The 308 shared both the tube-frame platform and double-wishbone independent suspension with the Ferrari 308 GT/4. Power was derived from the 2,929cc transversely mounted V8, producing more than 240 horsepower and a top speed of 156 mph. Four-wheel disc brakes ensured excellent stopping power and when mated with the five-speed manual transaxle, the 308 provided a driving experience like no other. Beginning in 1980, Ferrari would adapt Bosch Fuel Injection and electronic ignition, changing the 308’s name to the 308 GTBi and 308 GTSi. Often considered to be the more reliable 308, the GTBi and GTSi were built in limited numbers before the model was replaced by the 308 Quattrovalvole in 1982. The 308 is often associated with the TV show Magnum, P.I. as the model played a starring role in the series, capturing the hearts of many as Tom Selleck chased down criminals in Hawaii behind the wheel. The 308's iconic wedge shape was a staple of the 1980’s, ensuring the 308’s collectability and desirability for years to come.
