1975 FERRARI 308 GT4 FINISHED IN RED OVER TAN LEATHER 3.0L V8 240HP REAR WHEEL DRIVE
The GT4 was a groundbreaking model for Ferrari in several ways: it was the first production Ferrari to feature the mid-engined V8 layout that would become the bulk of the company's business in the succeeding decades, and was the first production Ferrari with Bertone (rather than Pininfarina) designed bodywork. Pininfarina was upset by the decision to give cross-town rival Bertone the design, considering all they had done for Ferrari. The styling featured angular lines entirely different from its curvaceous 2-seater brother, the Dino 246, and was controversial at the time. Some journalists compared it to the Bertone-designed Lancia Stratos and Lamborghini Urraco, also penned by Marcello Gandini. From the cockpit the driver sees only the road. Enzo Ferrari himself took a major role in its design, even having a mock-up made where he could sit in the car to test different steering, pedals and cockpit seating positioning.
The suspension was fully independent, with double wishbones, anit-roll bars, coaxial telescopic shock absorbers and coil springs on both axles. Niki Lauda helped set up the chassis. The 3.0 L (2927 cc) V8 was mounted tranversely integrally joined with the 5-speed transaxle gearbox. The engine had an aluminum alloy block and heads, 16-valves and dual overhead camshafts driven by toothed belts; it produced 240 hp (179 kW) in the American version. The induction system used four Weber 40 DCNF carburetors.
