The great Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro described the Ferrari 308 GTB as “the most perfect car I’ve ever seen”. Featuring curvaceous lines with close attention to detail, the overall shape of the 1978 Ferrari 308 GTB was definitely a masterpiece. Powered by a transverse normally aspirated 3 Liter V8, the Ferrari 308 GTB could deliver a power of 255 hp and the car would achieve a 0 to 60 mph acceleration in 6.5 seconds. That is plenty of power and torque linked to a smooth gearbox, on top of a light chassis, which resulted in an incredibly satisfying driving experience. The 1978 Ferrari 308 GTB provided wonderful handling, and was overall a very agile and well-balanced vehicle. The cabin was very habitable and well equipped, with comfortable seats, good visibility, and easy access. In addition to the boot located behind the engine, the practicality of this model is rather good compared with other mid-engined sports cars.
The Ferrari 308 GTB is known by many for its role as co-star to Tom Selleck in the hit TV series “Magnum P.I.” and is one of the most beautiful cars ever made. If you grew up watching Magnum and thought your ultimate goal in life was to one day own a Ferrari 308 GTB, The Beverly Hills Car Club would be more than delighted to help you achieve this dream in the best conditions. Besides its beauty, the 1978 Ferrari 308 GTB is a great classic to own and to drive. You’ll also want to know that the early clutches, before the clutch mechanism changed in 1980, were known for being quite stiff. It is possible that the example you’re looking at made an upgrade to the new clutch system. Be sure to verify any work that was done on the car, preferring factory upgrades with detailed paperwork.
