Crafted by Pininfarina and shaped by Ferrari in Modena, the Mondial marked the culmination of Ferrari's 2+2 mid-engine lineage.
A bona fide 2+2 vehicle unmistakably bearing the Ferrari DNA, an '80s automotive magazine lauded it as "the closest you'll get to supercar family transportation." While it was initially overlooked by fervent Ferrari aficionados, the Mondial, which concluded its production in 1993, defied expectations by selling 6,800 units, surpassing the sales records of its predecessors. This unprecedented success arguably contributed to a curious twist of fate, with many diehard Ferrari enthusiasts now acknowledging the Mondial as the prototype for today's sophisticated four-seat Ferraris.
The name "Mondial," meaning "Global" in French, was ostensibly a nod to Ferrari's continued dominance in Formula 1. However, some speculate that it symbolized the Mondial being the first Ferrari to meet global safety and emissions standards, a pivotal factor that allowed the Mondial to captivate audiences worldwide.
We are thrilled to introduce this Australian-delivered Mondial, initially purchased by its first owner from Scuderia Veloce Motors in Lindfield at the dawn of 1988. This classic model retains its original Argento Metallic Silver exterior and plush tan leather interior, and as a 1987 model year, it boasts the iconic, effortlessly revving 3.2 litre V8 quattrovalvole engine that is unmistakably Ferrari.
This exemplar has undergone extensive scrutiny, with the body receiving a comprehensive overhaul. It comes complete with its original books and leather wallet, a testament to its previous ownership and a valuable addition for its next custodian.
Experience razor-sharp handling and a responsive chassis that guarantee precision and confidence through every twist and turn on the road. The Mondial is meticulously engineered to provide an exhilarating connection between the driver and the asphalt, turning every drive into an unforgettable event.
