Hello.
Just wondering, ”Black Edition” is it something that the seller invented or is it a genuine Ferrari model?
24500€ for a 308 GTB -1981 “Black edition” doesn’t sound too much, what’s your opinion?
It has 91000km’s on the meter.
What are the most important things to look at on such car?

Yeah, the "Black Edition" is something the seller made up. Mine is the special "Red Edition", very rare. :)

The price seems about right for an '81, if not a little high. I know of a fairly decent '81 that recently sold in California for $25k. Of course, the prices in Europe may be significantly higher. Remember, the GTBi is the least powerful of the 3x8 series.

OK.
Thank you all.

I haven’t paid for the membership to access the buyer’s guides yet, but I’ll do that and then read everything I can get to about the 308.

The more I look at the 308 it appeals more and more to me, even more than the 328 although it is a more modern car. I just can’t stop loving the sound from those carburetors breathing in the air.
Loved it cense the first time I heard a 1300cc engine breathing through 2 double Weber 58’s.
It was an Italian car too, A Simca Abarth 1300 GT Longnose. Gorgeous car from the earlier 1960 rewing 9000 rpm, 6 speed gearbox. It just sounded so fantastic. You know the feeling when hearing the screaming sound through the gears.
:p

I know there is no "black edition" but if I'm not mistaken there were 2 differant blacks, standard and metallic finish. Also 2 differant body's Steel and Glass. Could someone be confusing one of those as a limited edition?

You are not alone. If you want a carb 308 then you need to be looking at '79 or earlier. '80 is the first of injected 308s. Here is a post where you can see the 308 and 328 side-by-side. The 328 is the most refined of the 3x8 series but the 308 does have that more "raw" look about it.
