Multiple award winner at the Ferrari Owners Club Northen Concours Full documented history from new. Recent belt service October 1975, saw the debut at the Paris Motor Show of the most successful shape ever to wear the Cavallino Rampante emblem, the Ferrari 308. The 3-litre, four-cam V8 was more or less unchanged until March 1981 when Bosch fuel injection was added in place of the 4 double-choke Webers, reducing the engine's power output significantly. Two years later, the 4-valves per cylinder Quattrovalvole or 'QV' model pushed output back up to 240 bhp restoring the status quo. Only 233 right-hand drive 308 GTS QV's were produced. Enthusiast owned and delivered new in May 1983, this outstanding example has covered a mere 31,822 miles from new, substantiated by a fully documented history file.
