The 308 GTB and Targa topped GTS, are mid-engined V8 two-seater sportscars manufactured between 1975 and 1985 and went on to become part of popular culture after appearances in 1980's TV programmes - such as Magnum PI - which showed off their classic lines and great looks.

This particular 308 GTSi has covered 49,000 miles and is being offered from a deceased estate at 'No Reserve'. The car was originally supplied new to the USA in left-hand drive and was imported to the UK in 2016. Sadly, the owner passed away in April 2017 before carrying out any restorative works and the car has remained in his private collection ever since alongside another 308 and a 328 also offered at this dedicated Ferrari Sale.

Offered with a fresh MOT and a NOVA Certificate confirming that all relevant taxes and duty have been paid, it is now ready for UK registration. 

Our research suggests long-term single private ownership in the USA from 1985 until 2016 during which time the car was well cared for and regularly used. On arrival in the UK in May 2016, it went to Omega Motorsport for an inspection and a service which included a cambelt change.

Said to drive well, it's in need of some cosmetic restoration and improvement but seems a good solid basis for price range classic Ferrari ownership.
