Ferrari Dino 308 GT4
Aerodynamics are for people that can’t build engines. – Enzo Ferrari
The Ferrari Dino 308 GT4, a Ferrari that brought many significant changes, but also closed. It was the last Ferrari Dino to be born and the Godfather (to stay in Italian terms) of Ferrari’s with a V8 mid engine. The 360 challenge stradale, the 458 Speciale and the 488 Pista are all “nipoti” of our 308 GT4.
It was also the first Ferrari to come not from Pininfarina but from Bertone. The Dino was almost not sold at first because the Ferrari logo was not directly visible on the car. After a recall by Ferrari, where they replaced the ‘Dino emblem’ for the prancing thoroughbred, the then intended counterpart to the 911, began to gain traction in the market. Eventually, just under 3,000 units were born.
Is the 308 GT4 a real Ferrari? Yes. As soon as you get in, you notice that all the bells are shaped around the driver, and the eight-cylinder behind your back gives off a wonderful sound. When you wake her up, you can hear the cooling water sloshing and the fuel pump humming. La meccanica dell’Emozione! The soaring Modena-ros has 255 hp and a dogleg 5-speed manual transmission, which are perfectly matched.
Ours is blu scuro dino with beige leather and dark blue velour inside. She has only driven 112 thousand kilometers and all her original (!) documentation is still there. As Enzo himself always said; ‘Too much is not enough’. We agree, so this one belongs in your collection. Do you already have one? Not enough, we’ll see you soon!I'm interested in this object
