The Ferrari 308 is arguably the most iconic Ferrari ever produced, the car that introduced most people to the Ferrari brand. The luscious flowing body, conceived by Leonardo Fioravanti, defines the timeless design of this classic Ferrari model. The wonderful 3.0 liter Ferrari V8 engine mounted directly behind the driver provides the 308 with the power and sound to match its beautiful design. This engine evolved through three versions during the 308 lifecycle, progressing from carburetors to fuel injection and ultimately to the four-valve Quattrovalvole version from 1983-1985.


The 308 produced for the U.S. market had both cosmetic and mechanical disadvantages when compared to its European market counterpart: it was saddled with larger and heavier bumpers and crash bracing, making the car hundreds of pounds heavier. And, the engine had performance-choking emissions controls, further decreasing the performance of the car. However, some European market 308s found their way to the U.S. These cars had to undergo both E.P.A. and D.O.T. certification, where some emissions controls (usually a catalytic converter) were added to the engine. Often these emission controls were immediately reversed once the car passed the EPA certification.


The "holy grail" of the Ferrari 308 is to find a European market car, one whose engine has not been modified from factory standards. This is one of those cars. This 308 was manufactured in February 1984 and sold new to Giacomo Thommen on March 8, 1984 by Garage Bianda SA in Ascona, Switzerland and shortly thereafter imported into the U.S. a month later in April, 1984. Giacomo Thommen was a principal at Garage Bianda SA, the original selling dealer.


The engine is as it left the Ferrari factory, with its full performance intact as Enzo intended. And while this car did have to meet D.O.T. specifications, the only modifications for the U.S. on the car are the speedometer and larger side marker lamps. Still present is the desirable smaller euro side mirrors, the smaller euro bumpers, the front grille & deeper front air dam and the euro exhaust without cats. As a result, the euro spec 308 Ferraris are the most beautiful and highest performing examples.


There really is a difference in the Euro cars; the lighter weight of the car and the more powerful engine are quite noticeable. The interior and the exterior of the car present beautifully and the car feels solid and tight. Driving it, you can tell that this car has never been "taken apart and put back together" as so many of these cars have been.


In 2015 at 37,977 miles, over $32,000 was spent with a Ferrari specialist who went through the car performing all necessary repairs and service - including timing belt, accessory belts, axle assemblies, radiator, fuel injectors, suspension bushings, brake calipers and pads, filters, hoses, A/C re-charge and numerous sorting and troubleshooting items, etc.


Two sets of wheels are included - the original metric wheels and the U.S. spec wheels currently mounted on the car. And documentation of other previous services is present back to 1992, further proving the mileage and meticulous care.


This is a rare opportunity to acquire a very special car. This is not your "regular" 308: this is a true European-market car, without emissions controls or ungainly and heavy larger bumpers, in a beautiful and classic color, fully serviced and ready for its next owner's enjoyment.
