Ferrari 308 GT4/358RR

Model: 1978 Ferrari 308 GT4

Project Overview:  This GT4 was purchased by our customer in need of a restoration. Carobu was enlisted to rebuild the car mechanically. The V8 engine was rebuilt into one of our larger displacement 3.5-liter motors while retaining the original Weber 40 DCN downdraught carburetors. The handling of the Ferrari was improved with the addition of stiffer lowering springs and revalved Koni shocks. Euro 308 Quattrovalvole 16-inch wheels were also installed. This car was featured in Forza Magazine after its completion.

Engine Specs:

240.91 lb-ft of torque @5300-rpm, 279.73-hp @6600-rpm
