The Ferrari 208 has an identical body to a 308. However, since the tax in Italy was very high on car over 2l, Ferrari decided to make this special version for the Italian market. And, there were only 140 cars like this built!
Exterior: Very nice paint, very straight car with good panel fit. Doors close perfectly. All glass and rubber details are in very good condition. Very sharp looking car from the outside with original low spoiler in the front. And, this was the first year for Ferrari 208 to put the 16” wheels on these cars and they give the car a much better look and ride in comparison to the earlier 15” wheels. Very good tyres in correct size for the car.
Interior: The Ferrari 208 has a super nice interior with the original leather seats in great condition. All chrome details inside the car are in perfect condition and everything works. Nice with the original AC for the hot summer days. Also, the trunk space is in perfect original condition and even the zipper works. There is also a handmade special cover for the car when you leave it for the winter or anytime you want to protect this beauty from dust.
Ferrari 208 and 308 came in the footsteps of the 246 Dino
Engine: Ferrari 208 has a very nice sound on this all original engine fuelled by 4 Weber carburettors. Belts were changed two years ago and the car has not been driven many kilometres since. Perfect gearbox and the second gear goes in easily and without grinding. The engine bay looks very clean and tidy.
History: Just like all of the cars, it was sold new in Italy, later found its way to Belgium where I bought the car. It comes with the original handbook and service book. Also, original tools and spare wheel. There is no doubt a Ferrari 308 has more horsepower than this car. However, if you have limited budget, you are much better off buying a proper, well maintained, original 208 than getting a ratty 308 that will cost you a fortune to bring back.
Also in stock a F355 Challenge
