1977-1985 FERRARI 308 GTB/GTS (steel) specifications

1977-1985 FERRARI 308 GTB/GTS (steel) specifications Classic and Performance Car

One of the company’s great success stories and still regarded as one of the best ways to introduce yourself to Ferrari ownership. Early cars are the most powerful, with the 1980-on Bosch fuel-injected models (signified by an ‘i’ suffix) losing 40bhp to emission controls. Much of this was restored two years later with the four-valves-per-cylinder qv models, identified by cooling slats in the front bonnet. Perhaps the best buys are those built after January 1984, thanks to corrosion-reducing Zincrox coating on the steel panels.
