1985 Ferrari 308 GTB Quattrovalvole

Magnum, P.I.. Yup, that's what you'll be called if you're found remotely in the vicinity of Ferrari 308 or 328 ownership. Yet this exotic car that was the dream of many a young man in the 1980s is one of the very few Ferraris that mere mortals can buy these days, ironically. Taking the Dino concept to the 1980s, Pininfarina managed to meld the evolutions of the 308 GT4 Dino, 365 GTC/4 and 512 BB into one package - and it worked. While the later 328 has better performance, the 308 was the one that everyone seems to remember. 1984 changes resulted in more power from the 4-valve heads, so finally the performance began to match the looks - and today's 1985 example is sure a looker: :

The Quattrovalvole (4 valve engine) is the last evolution of the 308 series and this is One Of The Last as the 328 started production late 1985.

Recent paint and maintenance mean this car should be a trouble-free purchase, with the normal question marks out of the equation. The color combination is unusual and gorgeous; I really like the red leather interior. If you're going to go all the way, why not have something special? Because of the recent paint, overall condition and mechanical servicing, the price on this car is extremely high compared to equivilants; Hagerty places the current value only around $50,000 at most. But as with the F355 Spider from the other day, if this is the combination that you want, I'd spend a little more to get the right one - which this one certainly appears to be!

    Clicking the link takes you to the auction for the car. I don’t believe it’s still available.
