The Dino 308 GT4 is a mid-engined V8 2+2 car built by Ferrari and was launched at the Paris Motor show in November 1973 and all cars were initially badged 'Dino' until finally gaining the Ferrari "Prancing Horse" badge in May 1976.
According to Ferrari's description of this car on their website: "The Dino 308 GT4 is certainly like no other Ferrari. The new car marked several 'firsts' for Maranello, and was the first production road car with a V8 engine and the first mid-engined 4-seater (although really a 2+2) and it was also styled by Bertone and not Pininfarina for the first time since 1953". It was designed by Marcello Gandini who worked for design house Gruppo Bertone on the outskirts of Turin and is also known for his designs of the Lamborghini Miura, Lamborghini Countach and the Lamborghini Diablo.
The cars construction included a tubular steel chassis with a steel body, but with an aluminium engine lid and front compartment lid to reduce weight and the chassis was based on the Ferrari Dino 246, but the wheelbase was stretched by 2, 550. 20mm to make room for the second row of seats. The suspension was fully independent, with double wishbones, anti-roll bars, coaxial telescopic shock absorbers and coil springs on both axles and it has 4-Wheel Disc Brakes. The 2926. 90cc V8 all Aluminium Engine was mounted transversally and integrally joined with the 5-speed transaxle gearbox and has 16-valves and dual overhead camshafts, four twin choke Weber 40DCNF Carburettors and it produced 255bhp.
In August 2021 Top Gear said: “It's been one of the cheapest routes into Ferrari ownership since new. Don't misjudge it as a result, though - it's still a bewitching car to simply operate, never mind drive”. Having £50, 000 to spend on a used Ferrari used to allow you to peruse the classifieds for F355's, but no more. The 308 GT4 is one of the few models that can claim the dubious credit of being so attainable, but we’d argue you want one of these more than you would want its Mondial successor for a few grand less, not least because it looks and feels the Seventies supercar part and way more bewitching to be around than you might expect of a Ferrari, not even originally marketed as one! It’s special at all speeds and takes a sense of occasion with it everywhere. If you buy carefully – from a specialist and with much inspection – you’ll end up with about an enthralling slice of exotica for the price of a clumsily specced Audi TT. And one that boasts roomier back seats too!"

This lovely original RHD example - Chassis No: F106ALA12796 and Engine No: F106A02101782 is a 'matching numbers' car and was supplied new by Maranello Concessionaires Ltd in Egham to a Mrs J Fry in Bramley near Guildford and was first registered on 18th January 1977.
The car is finished in its original colour scheme of Rosso Corsa with a Crema half hide leather interior, Black carpets, Rear Seats, its original Momo Leather Steering Wheel, Electric Windows, Air-Conditioning, rare manual Sun Roof, a period Blaupunkt Radio and electric Aerial, its original 14" Cromodora Alloy Wheels with relatively new Bridgestone Turanza 205/ 70/ 14 Tyres, original and unused Space-saver Wheel plus its original tool kit, jack, bulb kit and warning triangle.
This is a very original example which has had some paint rectification during its lifetime and although the carpets have been replaced, the remainder of the interior is original and in very nice condition. It has a full and continuous detailed service history from new with the first 8 service/ repair invoices in the file from from concessionaires Maranello in Egham from 1977 to 1984 + the remainder being from Ferrari specialists for routine annual Servicing, Cam Belt changes and repairs. It has all MOT certificates from its first one in 1980 through to 2006 when it was exported plus a record of its ownership right through to the previous owner who purchased the car and exported it to his home in Cyprus in October 2006. It also comes with its Owners Manual, a new Maintenance Book, Workshop Manual and other literature including Ferrari Owners Club documentation.
The car remained in Cyprus for 15 years and was used by the owner on many regularity runs when he was in Cyprus until he decided to bring it back to the UK in November 2021. During its time in Cyprus it was serviced regularly, had a Cam Belt change every 3 years and the most recent annual service was carried out by the Ferrari Authorised Dealer Moto Trend Ltd in Nicosia, Cyprus on 3rd March 2021 at 85, 315 miles. Works included an Oil Service and new Filters, Brake fluid change and a new Stainless Steel Brake Hose kit, replacement of the Timing Belt, full Carburettor overhaul plus new Fuel hoses, new front Track Rods, new cooling System Hoses and a new Cyprus MOT with the invoice amounting to €3, 500. The fully documented mileage covered from new is now 85, 527 miles and only 212 miles since it was last serviced.
This car is one of only 547 RHD 308 GT4's built in total during its 7 year lifespan, but one of only 89 cars believed to have been built in 1977, so it is a rare car! It had been the previous owners pride and joy for almost 16 years and the decision to sell it did not come easily, but we did sell it for him in July 2022 to a car collector and since then it has been stored in a secure storage facility along with the rest of his collection, but due to personal reasons, he is now having to sell his collection, so we are very pleased to be able to offer the car for sale once again and find it a new owner.
Upon sale, the car will come with a new MOT and our own customer care package including our HPI/ provenance Check, 55-point pre-delivery inspection and our own 3 months mechanical breakdown Parts & Labour Warranty which can be upgraded and extended at additional cost if required.
