SUMMARY

Recently arrived from France, this left-hand drive, US-spec, 308 GTSi has covered just 55,000km and looks very smart in Rosso Rubino.

DESCRIPTION

The Targa-topped GTS was first seen at the 1977 Frankfurt Motor Show and, in common with its GTB sibling, then had its carbureted engine replaced by one with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection in 1980, giving rise to the GTSi and GTBi models respectively. The mechanical fuel injection was coupled to a Marelli MED 803A Digiplex electronic ignition system, incorporating a coil, distributor and ignition module for each bank of cylinders and these modified engines produced 211bhp. The slightly disappointing reduction in performance was remedied by altering the final drive ratio to give similar acceleration to a carburettor car, with the whole car weighing just under 1,300KG. By now the use of GRP for the fixed roof bodies had been dropped and both variants were clothed in steel. Production of the GTSi version had totaled 1,743 cars by the time the model was replaced by the 308 Quattrovalvole in 1982.

Recently arrived from France, this left-hand drive, originally US-spec, 308 GTSi has benefited from an inspection and service at Cecil Cars, who are reputed restorers near Paris. The odometer indicates c.55,000km and the car is finished in Rosso Rubino with a black leather interior which is believed to be original.

Brought to the UK on a Temporary Admission, ready to be registered or exported. If the car is registered in the UK, import duty at 5% will be due on the hammer price plus buyer's premium. We encourage buyers outside of the UK to confirm any local tax, VAT or duty that may be payable upon purchase.
