A superbly restored Right Hand Drive and rare Carbureted GTB coupe example is showing just 1 previous owners on the HK VRD. This 308 is the last of line Carbureted Berlinetta. The car was originally delivered in 1981 in the UK, bought by the previous owner and imported to Hong Kong in 2012. The current owner bought the car in 2018 via Classic Insider.

Throughout its life, the car was never restored but has been annually serviced. So 6 months after the car changed hands to the current owner, it was subjected to a close to one year restoration by a marque specialist in 2019. The HKD 320,000 "Engine-out" mechanical overhaul with all major areas of the engine, belts, clutch, cooling, ignition, suspension, brakes, fuel system, body and interior renewed. From 2021 onwards, the car has been maintained by the authorized Ferrari dealer. This example is ready to enter a new stable. Available for viewing by appointment for serious interest only.

Restored Original. Well-kept and maintained. The exterior was restored and repainted, overall looking very good with minor blemishes only. The UK dealer installed Compomotive multi-piece alloy wheels are unrestored, they are in fair uncurbed condition showing some patina on the clear coat finish. The Interior is restored, the seats, dash, carpets and door cards are in good condition. The radio is not the factory unit. Mechanically excellent, engine-out overhaul has been completed and dealer maintained since then. The engine bay is clean and tidy with newly refurbished engine, belts, steering, clutch, cooling, ignition, suspension, brakes, fuel system, intake and exhaust. Owner's manual pack and Spare wheel missing but Jack and tool presented.

The Ferrari 308 GTB Berlinetta and targa topped 308 GTS are V8 mid-engined, 2-seater sports cars manufactured by Ferrari from 1975 to 1985. The 308 replaced the Dino 246 GT and GTS in 1975 and was updated as the 328 in 1985.

The 308 had a tube frame with separate body. The 308 GTB/GTS and GT4 were mechanically similar, and also shared much with the original Dino. Both 308s sit on the same tube platform, however the GT4—being a 2+2—has a longer wheelbase. The engine was a V8 of a 90 degree configuration, with belt-driven twin overhead camshafts per cylinder bank. It was transversely mounted in unit with the transaxle transmission assembly, which was below and to the rear of the engine's sump. All models used a fully synchromesh 5-speed manual and a clutch-type limited slip differential. Suspension was all-independent, comprising double wishbones, coaxial coil springs and hydraulic dampers, and anti-roll bars on both axles; four wheel vented disc brakes were also fitted. Steering was unassisted rack and pinion.

The 308's body was designed by Pininfarina's Leonardo Fioravanti, who had been responsible for some of Ferrari's most celebrated shapes to date such as the Daytona, the Dino and the Berlinetta Boxer. The 308 used elements of these shapes to create something very much in contrast with the angular GT4. GTS models featured a removable roof panel with grained satin black finish, which could be stowed in a vinyl cover behind the seats when not in use.
