On its debut Motorsport Magazine remarked, “All the superlatives have been trotted out time and again, but the 328’s impeccable balance, terrific grip and uncanny stability rouse the taste buds of even the most jaded motoring palate”.
The Type 328 succeeded the vaunted Ferrari Type 308 line-up, and when it first appeared in 1985, it quickly became a sporting style icon of the indulgent 1980’s.
Boasting cleaner lines smoothed out by Pininfarina’s designers to make the car appear less aggressive but overall more refined, an updated interior and significantly enhanced performance over its predecessor, the 328 delivered a proper sports car experience to be remembered.
Under the hood in the middle we find the 328’s updated DOHC transverse-mounted V8 Engine with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injected now improved with the bore and stroke increased, bringing displacement to 3,186cc with an output of 270HP at 7,000 rpm achieving 0 – 100 in just 5.5 seconds through its fabled chrome gated 5-Speed manual transmission modern Ferrari’s no longer feature.
