1976 Ferrari 308 GTB

The Ferrari 308 replaced the V6-powered 246 Dino. It came equipped with an all-new, DOHC V8 engine, with a displacement of just under three liters. They had dry-sump lubrication derived from the company's racing experience. The power plant was placed transversely above the rear axle and mated to a five-speed manual transaxle. Disc brakes were placed at all four corners. They wore styling by Pininfarina and were built by Scaglietti. The car's bodywork was entirely made of glass-reinforced plastic, with an overall weight of just over 2,300 lbs. The Fiberglass bodywork (vetroresina - the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari) was replaced after April of 1977 with steel. This change would bring an additional (approximate) 80kg weight penalty and a reduction in performance, as well as increased susceptibility to corrosion.

The Ferrari 308 GTB made its debut at the 1975 Paris Auto Salon. Production continued until June of 1977 with a total of 712 first series examples built. Further developments of the model introduced the open GTS version with a Targa-style removable roof, the adoption of Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection in 1980 and, revised cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder in 1982.
