The 308

Ferrari 308 GTB
Introduced in 1975, the stunningly beautiful 308 GTB, Ferrari's second V-8-engined road car, marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed Dino 308 GT4. The 308 was a short-wheelbase Berlinetta sharing a similar mechanical layout to the GT4, but with only two seats and beautifully styled coachwork, incorporating plenty of similarities with the 245 GT trumpeted as its successor. It was an instant classic. The new model was slightly different mechanically from the Dino, apart from a reduction in both wheelbase and weight; it retained its predecessor's drivetrain and transversely mounted 3-liter, quad-cam engine that now featured dry-sump lubrication (until 1976). The engine, mated with a 5-speed transaxle, produced 255 bhp (it lost 20 bhp thanks to tighter emissions laws in 1976), a number good enough to propel the 308 GTB to a top speed of 150 mph.This Car
This 308 is arguably one of the finest original examples of a Ferrari 308 GTB in existence, showing just over 14,000 miles of use. There is perhaps no better proof of the statement than the opinion of the judges at the 2005 Palm Beach Cavallino Classic (as well as 2003 and 2004), who awarded this 308 with the First Place Platinum 'Best in Class' Award as well as the Coppa Meccanica for scoring 100% on a mechanical inspection and road test. Originally from Texas, the Ferrari made its way to California, where it spent little time stretching its legs before being shipped off to Florida. Over the years, each owner has cared for the car with exceptional consideration, not only maintaining its condition, but preserving its originality from the Michelin XWX tires (including the still-stickered spare, which has never touched the ground) to the interior and its factory A/C.

The Argento Silver livery with black-and-blue leather pairing is rarely seen on 308s (only one of 13 ever made).
