1977 Ferrari 308 GTB

The Ferrari 308 was unveiled at the Paris Motor Show in 1975 and served as a replacement for the successful 246 Dino line. It wore Pininfarina-styling that was originally available only in a GTB coupe variant. In 1977, Ferrari began offering the GTS model, a Spider version with Targa top. Leonardo Fioravanti had designed the iconic wedge-shaped body lines in a similar fashion to previous work that included the 365 Daytona and 246 Dino. The early carburetor versions produced 240 horsepower from the 2,926cc mid-engine V8 which was mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. It is believed that from 1975 to 1981, approximately 2,897 Ferrari 308 GTBs were built.

The Ferrari 308 GTB was the company's second V8-engined road car and it marked a return to Pininfarina styling following the Bertone-designed Dino 308 GT4. It was mechanically similar to its predecessor, though it rested on a shorter wheelbase. The 308 GT4 had worn a Dino badge until 1977, thereafter a Ferrari badge. The 308 GTB was Badged as a 'proper' Ferrari rather than a Dino.

Initially, the 308 GTB had dry-sump lubrication and glass fiber (vetroresina) bodywork, which marked the first time this material had been used for a production Ferrari. Scaglietti was tasked with building the 308 GTB, and after April of 1977, production was switched to steel. This was unfortunate as steel was heavier (adding about 80kg) and susceptible to corrosion. Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection was adopted in 1980, followed by revised cylinder heads with four valves per cylinder in 1982.

One of the most well-respected Ferraris to ever roll out of Maranello was the Dino 246, an irony when one considers the cars position in its parent brands model lineup. An entry level vehicle with only half the cylinders of its famous big brothers, the Dino wasnt even branded as a Ferrari—it wore no prancing horse motifs and had a yellow Dino badge on its nose in place of the familiar, upright....
