The Ferrari 328 GTS and GTB had their worldwide debut at the 1985 Frankfurt motor show. Its styling is an obvious evolution of the Ferrari 308 series, with Pininfarina’s Leonardo Fioravanti softening his previous design so that it remained a popular choice with the Ferrari aficionados.
Under the engine cover is the same transversely-mounted, fuel-injected V8 engine from the Ferrari 308 Quattrovalvole, with an increase in displacement to 3.2 litres. Performance, handling and road holding are a big step on from its predecessor, although it retains all the benefits of the Ferrari 308’s independent suspension and slick five-speed manual gearbox.
Another significant difference over the Ferrari 308 is the use of galvanized steel, which greatly reduces rust problems compared to its forebear.
The early models of the 328 have an edge as far as collectability goes, thanks to several interior details, as well as the elegant concave wheel design. In 1988, ABS became available, and these later cars have a redesigned convex wheel to accommodate the system. While the 328 GTS was a runaway commercial success for Ferrari, the number of RHD cars built was less than 10% of the production run.
This particular Ferrari 328 GTS is one of just 250 right-hand-drive models with ABS. The car is presented in the famous Ferrari ‘racing red’ (Rosso Corsa) with Crema hide and Red carpets.
