The Ferrari 308 GTB: A Mid-Engined Masterpiece That Took the World by Storm!

The Ferrari 308 GTB was created in 1975 and continued to be manufactured until 1985. The first fiberglass-bodied Ferrari in production is the 308 GTB. The paint is as nice as what we've seen on the greatest steel-body cars, and the surface is smooth and free of ripples. Except for breadth, where it is merely a half-inch wider than the Dino 246, the 308 GTB is actually smaller than the Dino 246.

A naturally aspirated eight-cylinder, V-transverse middle engine gives the Ferrari 308 GTB a maximum torque of 284 Nm at 5000 rpm and a maximum power output of 255 PS at 7700 rpm. It has a 2,926.90 CC displacement overall, a 0-60 mph time of 5.8 seconds, and a top speed of 255 km/h.

Several versions of the Ferrari 308 GTB were produced by Ferrari between 1975 and 1985. In 1975, the 308 took the place of the Dino 246 GT and Dino 246 GTS. In 1985, it had an update to become the 328. This variation, which had a fiberglass body when it was first debuted, was called the 308 GTB Vetroresina. More than 12,000 units were sold between 1975 and 1985 in a variety of GTB, GTS (targa roof), and QV (quattrovalvole, meaning four valves per cylinder in Italian) versions.

The coveted name "Dino" was initially used by Ferrari on the 308 GTB, a non-12-cylinder Ferrari. New emissions rules reduced power to 212 HP in 1980, although Ferrari later raised it to 236.6 HP after switching to a 4-valve engine arrangement.
