1974 Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 news, pictures, specifications, and information
Considered to be angular, or ‘wedge-shaped', the Ferrari Dino 308 was considered to be the groundbreaking model for Ferrari as it featured the new 3.0-liter V8 engine that would become the trademark for the business.


Introduced in 1974, this vehicle came soon after the merge between Ferrari and Fiat. After producing 2,826 vehicles, the Ferrari 308 GT4 was replaced by the Mondial in 1980.

The Ferrari 308 GT4 carried the Dino badge in tribute to Enzo Ferrari's son, Dino at first, before switching to the Ferrari badge.

Affordable, with a superbly styled body, and great performance, the 308 GT4 carried the Bertone bodywork rather than Pininfarina.

These vehicles are considered to be a bargain today, and relatively easy to acquire as they remain priced similarly to a low-end sports car.

Introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1973, the 308 featured controversial styling at first, due to its angular lines. The chassis was stretched for a 2,550 mm wheelbase to make room for a second row of seats, and was based on the 246 Dino.

The V8 was mounted transversely, and the 3.0L (2827 cc) V8 produced 255 hp and was integrally joined with the gearbox.

Appearing in an episode of BBC's Top Gear and was purchased Richard Hammond. The car was acquired for less than 10,000 British pounds.

Though under frequent ridicule by Jeremy Clarkson, who considered the Ferrari Dino to be ‘fake Ferrari', it was the most reliable car of the times.
