The Pininfarina-styled 308 was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1975 as a supplement to the Bertone-shaped Dino 308 GT4 and a replacement for the Dino 246. Designed by Leonardo Fioravanti who had been responsible for some of Ferrari’s most celebrated shapes to date such as the Daytona, the Dino and the Berlinetta Boxer. An updated Quattrovalvole model introduced in 1982, adopted a 32-valve cylinder head, as well as an available small rear spoiler, additional louvers between the headlamps to aid with the radiator exhaust, and power mirrors, amongst other minor updates. With sweeping curves and aggressive lines, the 308 has become one of the most recognized and iconic Ferrari road cars.
