This 1978 Ferrari 308 GTB represents an iconic symbol of the prancing horse in a distinctive way. The full blackout appearance brings more aggression to the razor-sharp looks, and its well preserved/maintained condition delivers a loaded and speedy icon that is instantly memorable wherever you park it.

We love this car in black. It makes it the true dark horse of the heard. And the glossy finish instantly expresses both the sporty and premium feeling you want in a car of this caliber. The GTB coupe is one of the most desirable cars of the 308 series. The shape recalled some of the great classic Ferraris like the Daytona, but this was a much bolder design that could only be handcrafted by artists. After all, the iconic wedge nose flows immediately into rounded sides, and these two contrasting ideas merge in the rear. The only way can truly appreciate all of this is on a car like this that has been cared for correctly so the panels have the tight fit and the paint seamlessly flows over the artwork.

Inside, the gorgeous leather interior is exactly what you'd expect from your Ferrari. Deeply sculpted bucket seats, the iconic chrome gated shifter that ticks through the gears like a bolt-action rifle, and that purring V8 just behind your shoulder blades: it's an experience everyone should have at least once in a lifetime. The leather-wrapped Momo steering wheel connects you to the road in a way that you probably haven't experienced before, and you'll never get tired of watching the crisp Veglia gauges do their dance as the engine sings its European sonata. The highly original condition is a testament to this coupe's well-respected life. More than just top condition, this is a great classic for all the premium features, which include cold-blowing air conditioning, power windows, power locks, and an upgraded Blaupunkt AM/FM/CD stereo.

Ferrari's 2.9-liter V8 is in the company's fine tradition of providing low-displacement per cylinder. It helps give these cars their power advantage on the track and the distinctive exhaust note that makes us come back for more. This is the original powerplant for the car, and you want a '70s machine because it has the desirable quadruple set of twin-choke Weber carbs. There was a recent belt service, and this has its maintenance history (which, as you already know, means EVERYTHING to a Ferrari.) So the motor fires up and runs with the kind of eagerness you expect from a true exotic. It's engineered to have the perfect balance of power and agility that inspires confidence with every shift of the five-speed gearbox. Of course, aiding this is the race-inspired fully independent suspension and four-wheel disc brakes.

This ultra-desirable all-black GTB not only comes with the maintenance records, but also the owner's manual. This is the prancing horse Ferrari that you truly get to call a black beauty, so don't miss out on such a distinctive European classic. Call now!
