Classics – Snatch this Ferrari 308 GTB Group 4 for your racer garage image

The Prancing Horse first introduced the well known 308 GTB during the 1975 Paris Motor Show – with the design the work of Pininfarina and a new mid-V8 getting the perks instead of Dino’s transverse 2.0-liter V6.

All that applied of course to the regular 308 – but this particular example is something else, and best of all, it can be had through an auction alter on this month. The unit started life as a Stradale, but it was then entirely rebuilt as Michelotto Group 4 spec – chassis 32419 was one of just 14 original 308 examples to be reworked for Group 4 specification when new. The car will go under the hammer during the Grand Marques Du Monde at the Grand Palais auction in Paris, France, later this very month.

Additionally, back in 2015 the specialists JMR Motorsport were in charge of refitting it with a reinforced chassis, new doors, a hood, and a new fiberglass engine cover – but there are also lighter bumpers, AP Racing brakes and even a hydraulic handbrake. The 3.0-liter engine was also refurbished to competition-spec, with new forged pistons, steel cylinder liners, valves, springs, and guides – it now displays a beefy 297 horsepower (221 kilowatts), and the car is actually tipping the scales at just 2,392 pounds (1,085 kilograms), which is 440 pounds (200 kilograms) lighter than the standard 308.
