We are pleased to offer this 1980 Ferrari 308 GTSi finished in Rosso Corsa over a black leather interior. Introduced in 1980, the 308 GTSi was the first of the 308's to feature Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection. Fewer than 2,000 examples are reported to have been produced before the introduction of the 308 Quattrovalvole in 1982. This first-year 1980 example is said to have spent its life garage-kept and has undergone a recent engine-out belt service. Now with just over 28k miles showing on the odometer, this 308 GTSi is being offered for auction by its seller out of Texas.
This example comes finished in traditional Rosso Corsa with a removable black roof panel and features U.S. specification bumpers and turn signals. The 308's bodywork was styled by Leonardo Fioravanti of Pininfarina, who is responsible for some of Ferrari's most celebrated designs including the Daytona, Dino, Berlinetta Boxer, and F40. The seller notes the finish remains very well presented, additional photos can be found in the gallery along with a clean CARFAX report. This 308 rides on factory 16” Cromodora wheels dressed in BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires showing date codes from 2016.
Inside, you will find a black leather interior with matching black carpeting and a leather dashboard. This example features several period accessories including a leather-wrapped three-spoke Nardi steering wheel, Blaupunkt radio, and a Clifford alarm system. The cabin exhibits some signs of age and patina, and the seller confirms all gauges and accessories to remain functional.
Power comes from a Tipo 106 V8 engine equipped with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and Marelli MED 803A Digiplex electronic ignition. As much as 202 HP is sent to the rear wheels through a 5-speed manual transaxle with a gated shifter. The CARFAX report highlights several services dating back as far as 1998, including the replacement of the thermostat, water pump, coolant reservoir, and drive belt tensioner in 2019. The seller notes that a major engine-out belt service has also been recently completed in 2021.
This sale will include a toolkit and a clean title. Finished in Rosso Corsa and sporting a traditional gated shifter, this one-owner 308 GTSi may very well be the vintage Ferrari you’ve been searching for.
