During its nine year production, the first generation Ferrari Mondial strangely always stood in the shadow of its two seated in-house rivals such as the stunning 308. As a result, the Mondial was always curiously undervalued despite its unique appeal and relative rarity. First and foremost, it is the only Ferrari and one of very few production convertibles to feature a rear mid engine while accommodating four passengers and their luggage. This makes it perhaps the most practical of all classic Ferraris, adding to its great potential for future increase in value. This particular specimen is a 1988 model year UK supplied car in classic Ferrari red with cream interior. With the desirable third generation engine – the 3.2 litre “quattrovalvole” (Italian for four valve) – this car combines classic looks and handling with performance figures closer to modern supercars. Pop-up headlights, a dog-leg manual gearbox and metric wheels with TRX tyres are just some of the features that make this an essential 1980s sports car. Despite being from a wilder time, this Ferrari is just tame enough for an inexperienced enthusiast to handle; but thrilling nonetheless. With only 57 original RHD cars supplied and an unknown number surviving today on British roads, this stunning specimen is one of the best Mondial convertibles on the market today. The bodywork is in immaculate condition, following a high-end bare metal respray a few years ago and meticulous care ever since. The unusually shaped soft top is equally in pristine condition and does not leak. The cream interior is in unmolested, original condition with very few signs of wear. Most importantly, the car is mechanically solid and has passed all of its recent MOTs with no advisories. This is because this car, unlike many less fortunate Mondials, has enjoyed devoted care from its keepers and is supplied with an extensive history file. The car’s current keeper of seven years is a trained mechanic himself and has spared no expense in maintaining it to the highest standard. Thus, the car has been frequently serviced and has recently seen costly maintenance works, including a timing belt change and front suspension overhaul. The genuine mileage is warranted by a multitude of old invoices and MOT certificates. The car is supplied as seen with a custom Larini stainless steel exhaust and original metric wheels. The original exhaust and wider aftermarket wheels may also be supplied to buyers willing to pay the asking price. The car is currently on a private registration, 451 MV, which is not included in the sale but available by separate negotiation. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any queries of reasonable offers!

Family fun: 4 places, wind through hair, reliable, fast and economical (€30/year taxes in Flanders) The final Mondial evolution was 1989's Mondial t (Coupe and Cabriolet). It was a substantially changed model, "spearhead of a new generation of V8 Ferraris", according to Road & Track magazine. It was visually different from preceding Mondial models, the most recognizable being the redesign of the air intakes to a smaller, neater rectangular shape. Additionally, the door-handles were of a visually different design and the bumpers became body coloured. The Mondial t represented the most substantial upgrade to the Mondial model line in performance and handling since its introduction in 1980. Previous Mondials had rarely justified their price premium over the competition in terms of bare performance statistics, which led to some poor press coverage. The "t" offered greater performance whilst retaining a mid-engined layout and a practical packaging layout, and was more favorably received. It also had the advantage of two usable rear seats. The company has not produced a mid-engined 2+2 car since then, leaving the 2+2 configuration to the more classic front-engined design starting with th

About this Ferrari Mondial 8 The Ferrari Mondial designed by Pininfarina of Turin was produced Ferrari between 1980 and 1993; concurrently, for part of that period, with Ferrari's 2-seater 308 GTB/GTS, 328, and 348 sports cars. All major mechanical systems in the Mondial, including engine, transmission, steering and suspension, are either identical to, or very similar to, those used on the matching 2-seater vehicles being produced at around the same time. At their core, all Mondials are fitted with a V8 engine; these engines comprise: a Ferrari-cast lightweight alloy V8 block with 90Â° bank-angle; a five-bearing, flat-plane crankshaft with belt-driven, quad overhead camshafts (two per cylinder bank). A five-speed, all-indirect manual transmission using a "dog-leg" selector pattern was the only transmission offered. Today, the Mondial 8 is considered one of Ferrari's most practical vehicles, due to its proven drive-train, four seats, and relatively low cost of maintenance (major services can be performed without removing the entire engine/transmission sub-frame). Our Extremely attractive Right Hand Drive example was first registered in March 1982; resplendent in superb Argento paint
