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.

The GTB being the rarer of the two with only 130 UK Right Hand Drive cars ever delivered, from a worldwide perspective, Ferrari produced 5 GTS's for each GTB.

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 were fitted with ABS as standard and feature convex and oppose to concave wheels as shown on this pre ABS car.

In recent times the 328 has become very collectible, especially in GTB form because of its rarity and some would say is only now commanding the interest and the value it deserves.

The 328 had 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.

Background to this Vehicle

Only 130 GTB versions of the 328 were supplied to the UK market, this car is one of 77 of those supplied to the UK market without ABS.

This example was supplied via Maranello Concessionaires Ltd but collected directly from the factory on EE (Italian Export) Plates by the first owner on 4th May 1987 with the following specification:

Rosso Corsa 

Crema Leather

Red Carpets

Air Conditioning

Rear Aerofoil

It was also ordered from new, and delivered as such with a Nero lower half echoing the two tone colouring of the Boxer series, the only 328 I have ever seen in such a combination, but has later been reverted back to being the Rosso Corsa we're all familiar with.

Used regularly in its early life, the history file advises that the vehicle was in storage between 1990 until 1993 when it was returned to use.
