308 GTB - Decided to sell

I have decided to part with the 308 GTB (1975, Fiberglass, Dry Sump) at some point between now and next summer. It is a fantastic car and I have really enjoyed owning it. However I have decided to get much more serious about track days and racing next year so room will have to be made. Let me know if anyone is interested. Price is Euro 33,500.

If the 308 GTB is purchased by a FerrariLife member, I will donate 5% of the proceeds to Andrew to use for site upgrades.

Not really, more of a swap as it will be replaced by a track (not road legal) car.

So you are swapping out your city car for a race car. What will you do for a city car?

By the time it happens, I will not need a city car.

I you do find you need a city car every now and again you could just rent a Lincoln Town Car.

Way to big and floppy for narrow European city streets.

What you really need to make it sell is a new front number plate mounting

You need a Vespa or a Lambretta for European city driving, and at least they are Italian.

So, what kind of track car are you looking at? An F-car or something else that's high performance?

Hi Boxer - not sure if you're actively looking for a 360 Challenge yet, but I ran across this one, and thought I'd pass it along. I'm not sure about specifics on this dealer or the car, though....

Rick, Thanks but I am afraid the costs of importing it back into Europe (you would have to pay VAT) would make it very expensive. Cheers, Boxer

That's funny, Boxer, I was just re-reading your article about this car today.

Nice car - I'm toying of maybe buying a 308 next summer but now's too soon.

Good luck with the sale, and I hope for all our benefits an FL member buys it!

To bad your in Europe, that is exactly what I'm looking for and importing wouldn't be economical.
