1978 Ferrari 308 GTS. Red version

The Ferrari 308 GTB berlinetta and targa topped 308 GTS are V8 mid-engined, two-seater sports cars manufactured by the Italian company Ferrari from 1975 until 1985.

The 308 replaced the Dino 246 GT and GTS in 1975 and was updated as the 328 GTB/GTS in 1985. The similar 208 GTB and GTS were equipped with a smaller, initially naturally aspirated and later turbocharged, two-litre engine, and were sold mainly in Italy.

At the 1977 Frankfurt Motor Show, the targa topped 308 GTS was introduced. All GTS’ received a wet sump engine and were steel-bodied. European GTB models retained the dry sump lubrication until 1981.

There were 3219 GTS’ and 2897 GTBs made from 1975 to 1980. Only 808 of the fibreglass (vetroresina in Italian) version were made, all with the Berlinetta bodywork.
