The Ferrari 328 GTB and GTS was the successor to the Ferrari 308 GTB and GTS. While mechanically still based on the 308 GTB and GTS respectively, small modifications were made to the body style and engine. Most notably an increase in engine displacement to 3.2 L for increased power and torque output. The 328 is considered by many Ferrari enthusiasts to be one of the most reliable Ferraris. Unlike some models, most engine maintenance can be performed without lowering the engine from the vehicle.
The GTB referred to the Gran Turismo Berlinetta (coupe) while the GTS was a Gran Turismo Spider (targa top). The 328 figures in the model title referred to the total cubic capacity of the engine, 3.2 litres, and 8 for the number of cylinders.
The Ferrari 328 presented a softening of the wedge profile of its predecessor, with a redesigned nose that had a more rounded shape, which was complemented by similar treatment to the tail valance panel. The interior trim also had a thorough overhaul, with new designs for the seat panel upholstery and stitching, revised door panels and pulls, together with more modern switchgear, which complemented the external updated details.
This Ferrari 328 is in totally original condition and the paint and interior leather have been maintained in exceptional condition. It is offered with a 2015 Maranello “Certificazione di Originalita'” (Certification of Originality”) signed by Piero Ferrari for all mechanical body and interior parts.
This Ferrari has a complete record of ownership and service work including copies of titles and receipts. The last major service including belts and hoses was done in 2010 at 40,535 miles and additional services have been done according to the car records. This Ferrari 328 GTS is presented with original owner manuals and related documents in the original pouch, original tools and jack bags, service and part manuals, Ferrari Certification of Originality, and two keys. This car was winner of Platinum, Best of Show or Best in Class at every Concours d’Elegance entered and is now eligible to participate in National Ferrari Shows in the category of Preservation. It is now showing only 47,265 miles and is finished in Blu Chiaro and Scuro. A wonderful properly maintained example of a very desirable Ferrari.
