Wanted - 308 rear wing

I have a customer who is interested in a rear wing for his 308. Does anyone here know if anyone makes such a thing? Thanks in advance for your help.

Best regards,

What kind of wing?
- the kind of later seen on the GTO? a sort of big lip on the back end of the car? Try some dealers that convert 308's to 288's
- a 328 GTB?GTS wing? A little spoiler behind the rear window? try a normal dealer, or cheaper, a company that parts out Ferrari's
- Something never seen, a sort of fantasy spoiler? Try several tuners like hamann and koenig.

Let us know what you exactly mean, we can help you with the search

Bob,

Thanks for the reply. I guess I wasn't very clear, but that's because my customer hasn't been completely clear. From our conversation it seems to me he is looking for a big fantasy wing, the kind of thing one normally sees on riced out body kit modified sport compacts. So I'd guess tuners are the place to look.

I tried Koenig - nothing listed for a 308. I tried Imola/Dimex. Their site is in German only (which I only have a passing knowledge of and not at all in terms of technical vocabulary). It looked like they had 308 applications listed, but I couldn't decipher any details. I had forgotten Hamann. I'll try them. And Veilside, the Japanese company. I've seen some 348 and 355 stuff from them.

Any other suggestions? Thanks again.

Brent

A riced up Ferrari, and I'm helping you... where is this world going to? :lol:

That's from the site of Michael Sheehan. He had more conversions including wing for sale. If you contact him, maybe he can tell more.

You can always try Norwood performance, they produce 800 hp Testarossa's, and I saw pics of a spoilered testa from them. Maybe they do 308 spoilers too.

And for "normal" tuners, if it is not mentioned on the site, mail or call them. Aspecially big ones like hamann and koenig don't list everything on their site.

I don't think the spoiler will be cheap, since not a lot of 308's are fitted with this.

Let us know what you found out, and maybe some pics of the riced up car

Why spoil the great looks of the 308 by fitting a spoiler?

Agreed. I don't know why someone would want to destroy the lines of their 308 by adding on a wing to it...as said before...that's "ricey".

Guys,

While I may agree with you, it is something my customer has requested. I feel obligated to try to help him out and provide genuine customer service, not criticize or question his taste. To each his or her own...

Thanks, too, for all the suggestions. I hadn't even thought of Norwood's, even though I am familiar with their work. Michael Sheehan had not come to mind either. I'll check all these leads.

Best regards,
Brent
