Coachwork by Bertone
As the all-new successor to the Dino-badged 246 GT/GTS, the Ferrari 308 GT4 debuted at Paris in 1973 as the first Ferrari road model with V-8 power. With coachwork designed by Marcello Gandini for Bertone, the 308 GT4 was notable in that it was the first production Ferrari model in over 20 years not designed by Pininfarina. Development testing was led by Scuderia Ferrari’s lead F1 driver and eventual world champion, Niki Lauda.
Ferrari expert Marcel Massini confirmed the delivery details of this GT4, which is a non-catalyst, European Series II model and the 29th-to-last 308 GT4 built. In addition to the more powerful European-specification engine, features include power windows, air-conditioning, Becker Europa II radio, and rear seats. Completed February 14, 1980, it was delivered new to French Ferrari importer Automobiles Charles Pozzi SA in Paris, sold to Armand Benaud, and subsequently exported to the US and owned by former Ferrari dealer Auto Torino of Great Neck, New York. Well preserved and presented with just 42,500 km on the odometer at the time of cataloguing, it earned the coveted Platinum Award honors at the 26th Annual FCA Cavallino Classic in 2017. Proven on the concours lawn, this exceptional 308 GT4 retains its matching-numbers engine and also benefits from a recent inspection and service performed in 2019. Simply put, it stands proudly among the finest examples now available of this groundbreaking and increasingly sought-after Ferrari model.
