Description

Introduced at the Frankfurt Salon in 1985 alongside it's sibling, the 4 Seater Mondial 3.2, the 328 was available in both GTS and GTB body styles.

Essentially the 328 was a revised and updated version of the 308 which had survived for eight years without any radical change to the overall shape, albeit with various changes to the engine which went from a carburettored 2 Valve per cylinder, to Fuel injection and then to Quattrovalvole - or 4 Valve.

The 328 presented a softening of the wedge profile of its predecessor, with a redesigned nose that had a more rounded shape, complemented by similar treatment to the tail valance panel. The revised front and rear sections featured body coloured bumpers integral with the valance panels, which reflected the work done concurrently to present the Mondial 3.2 models with which they also shared a similar radiator grille and front light assembly layout. Thus all the eight-cylinder cars in the range shared fairly unified front and rear aspects, providing a homogeneous family image.

The exhaust air louvres behind the retractable headlight pods on the 308 series disappeared, coupled with an increase in the size of the front lid radiator exhaust air louvre, which had been introduced on the 308 Quattrovalvole models, whilst a new style and position of exterior door catch was also provided. The interior trim also had a thorough overhaul, with new designs for the seat panel upholstery and stitching, revised door panels and pulls, together with more modern switch gear, which complemented the external updating details.

Optional equipment available was air conditioning, metallic paint, Pirelli P7 tyres, a leather dashboard, leather headlining to the roof (or removable roof panel in the case of a GTS) plus rear window surround, and a rear aerofoil.

UK GTS production with ABS was just 292 vehicles.

Powered by a 3.2 Litre transverse mounted V8 producing 270 BHP, it remained in production until 1989 when it was replaced by the 348, the later cars such as this one were fitted with ABS as standard and feature convex and opposed to concave wheels of the earlier pre ABS cars.

In recent times the 328 has become very collectible, and has a well earned reputation for being reliable as well as relatively inexpensive to run in Ferrari terms. A great all rounder with strong performance and low ownership costs have ensured the 328's longevity.
