Did you know that this engine served as the basis for the 328 engine?
The Ferrari 308 were manufactured from 1975 to 1985. The 308 replaced the Dino 246 GT en GTS in 1975 and was updated as the 328 in 1985.
The Pininfarina-styled was introduced as a supplement to the Bertone 2+2 Dino GT4 and a direct replacement for the 2-seater Dino 246.
Its F106 AB V8 engine was equipped with four twin-choke Weber 40DCNF carbus and single coil ignition. European versions produced 255 PS (188 kW; 252 bhp) at 6600 rpm (7700 rpm redline), but American versions were down to 240 PS (177 kW; 237 bhp) at 6,600 rpm due to emissions-control devices.
At the 1977 Frankfurt Motor Show the taeg a topped 308 GTS was introduced. Independently from the market, all GTS used a wet sump engine and were steel-bodied. European GTB models retained the dry sump lubrication until 1981.
There were 3219 GTS and 2897 GTB examples were made during the 1975–1980 production periods. Only 808 of the first fibreglass (vetroresina in Italian) version were made.
