1985 Ferrari 308 GTB QV 2.9 liter V8 engine


Description


These iconic Italian sports cars came with a tubular chassis and spirited, transversely mounted aluminum 2.9 liter V8 engine, culminating in the 250hp fuel-injected Quattrovalvole (QV) in 1982. This engine was the basis for great things to come, serving as the base powerplant for the 288 GTO and F40. QV production ran from 1983 until the 308 ended its model run in mid 1985. Although a little over twelve thousand 308s in various forms were built, only 3,042 QVs were assembled, with GTBs making up only a small percentage of those numbers.

Chassis #56545 is a full Euro-spec 1985 308 GTB QV, from the end of a successful run. This particular GTB, covered in original Rosso Corsa (Racing Red) paint, retains its European pedigree with distinctive crema leather and luscious red carpeting. While slightly federalized for import to America, #56545 retains the small front/rear bumpers and Vitaloni mirrors, and its original small front valence or spoiler. Research is ongoing but we believe #56545 to be one of only three euro spec 308 GTBs currently in North America. Regardless, experts believe less than 250 GTB QVs were built total. Besides the limited Vetroesinas, no other 308 offers the proven collectibility as this extremely rare example.
