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 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 drive and easy ownership 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.
Offered here is an Australian delivered 1988 Ferrari 328 GTS sold new in August of 1988 by John Cant Ferrari, Melbourne ordered in the most desirable combination of Rosso Corsa over Tan Leather trim and travelled an original 39,000kms kilometres.
The subject of a recent major mechanical overhaul sparing zero expense with classic Ferrari specialists and Ferrari Sydney combined, this well maintained 328 features its original 16-inch Ferrari stamped alloys, its original and iconic Carello quad tail light lenses, the original vinyl wrapped Targa top in stunning condition, Momo leather wheel and original etched glass throughout.
Accompanied by its original book pack with delivery receipt and service stamps as well as historical and current service receipts and original key all tell-tale signs attest to the meticulous way this Ferrari has been kept.
Absolutely on the button, the drive and performance delivery of this special car is second to none. Torquey from low down with such a wide power band this 328 is so well tuned. Then there is the flat cornering, super accurate gear changes and well weighted steering and pedal feel, to experience a 1980’s icon in such good condition is a treat.
Considered by many to be one of the most reliable Ferrari’s ever built, 328's have always been considered the enthusiast’s favourite. On offer is outstanding performance, perfect road manners, arguably gorgeous design and a maintenance bill that isn’t much different to a VW Golf.
This timeless sports classic, simply stated, checks all the right boxes and satisfies even the most discerning classic motoring connoisseur tastes.
