The 1978 Ferrari 308 GT4 was a break from tradition for Ferrari. Not only was the 308 GT4 the first mid-engined, V8 Ferrari road car, but also the company used Bertone instead of Pininfarina for design. As a result, the styling of this two-door coupe, four-seat sports car was very different from its predecessor. The interior of the 1978 Ferrari 308 GT4 is a little traditional, but quite roomy and practical for a Ferrari. Thanks to the rear wheel drive configuration and an efficient manual 5-speed gearbox, the Ferrari 308 GT4 could reach a top speed of 155 mph. The car offered great handling although the suspension was tuned for under steering, which made it slightly less agile than the Dino 246 GT. The first models were fitted with carburetors, which made the car quite aggressive in terms of driving and sound.
Many fans didn’t like that the Ferrari logo wasn’t visible all over the car and that the design was a little too unconventional, especially after the great success of the curvy Dino 246 GT. The Ferrari 308 GT4 slowly became a collector jewel though, and the edgy design aged well over the years. A good example will run well, with efficient suspension system and a good gearbox. A few things to know about the 1978 Ferrari 308 GT4 is that steering lock was very limited, which made maneuvering in tight spaces sometimes frustrating. Moreover, a mid-engine car can be uncomfortably warm in hot weather, with coolant lines running around the cabin. The 1978 Ferrari 308 GT4 isn’t the fastest in its category but he will give his/her owner a wonderful owning experience.
