1984 Ferrari 308 GTS Quattrovalvole
Set for The Broad Arrow Auction at The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island
The world was first introduced to the Pininfarina-styled Ferrari 308 GTB during the 1975 Paris Motor Show. The engine fitted to the new 308 was a 2.9-liter Tipo F106 AB V8 with four twin-choke Weber 40DCNF carburetors producing 240 hp in US specification. The open-top GT Spyder would be released two short years later, during the 1977 Frankfurt Motor Show, perfect for those wanting an open-air Ferrari. The final development of the 308 would come in 1982 with the launch of the Quattrovalvole. The same basic engine was used as before, but this time the cylinder heads were improved with four valves per cylinder in addition to using Bosch fuel injection. Even with stricter emissions regulations, the US cars were able to produce similar power levels as before.
This particular 308 GT Spyder, chassis number 50987, was produced in March 1984, the second to last year of production. The body is finished in the classic color of Rosso Corsa, beautifully contrasted by the Beige Connolly leather interior. A well-optioned example, this car is equipped with both air conditioning and power windows. Being a GT Spyder, this car has the added benefit of creating a wonderful open-air driving experience.
This 308 recently had a belt service completed in January 2023 in preparation for this sale. We serviced the vehicle in April 2022, following a complete inspection. A set of four Michelin 205/55 tires were fit to the optional 16 five-spoke alloys, leaving the original and unused spare wheel with its factory-fit Pirelli. The steering rack was rebuilt and resealed, rectifying a worn bushing. The air conditioning system was recharged with R134a, having been converted under previous ownership. Today this 308 GT Spyder displays only 21,700 miles at the time of cataloging, which would make it an excellent addition to any stable showcasing the best of Ferrari.
