About the Ferrari 308
We have been in the world of Ferrari finance for many years, and the appeal of an early 308 has certainly not diminished!
The Ferrari 308 was penned by Pininfarina’s Leonardo Fioravanti, designer of the Daytona, Dino and Berlinetta Boxer. It replaced the 246 Dino in 1975, and used a 2.9 litre V8 engine producing 252bhp.
From 1975 to June 1977 the 308 was made using fibreglass bodywork with an aluminium front lid, giving it a total kerb weight of just 1,050kg.
These early cars are known as the 308 Vetroresina.
808 of these fibreglass cars were made before construction switched to steel in June 1977, with steel construction adding around 150kg to the weight of the finished car.
About Ferrari 308 Production Numbers
Ferrari made 3219 in GTS form and 2897 GTBs. Just 808 of these were fibreglass cars.
Ferrari made just 2897 in Berlinetta (GTB) form and 3219 as GTS Targa top (GTS) cars. Only 808 cars made between 1975 and June 1977 were fibreglass ‘Vetroresina’ cars. The GTS was introduced in 1977, after production had switched to steel, meaning every Ferrari 308 GTS is steel bodied.
In Ferrari circles, it is these fibreglass cars that are highest in demand, which is exactly what we see here.
