308 GTB

308 GTB
Scale: 1:18
Collection: GT & Sport
Limited Edition: no more than 5,000 pieces
The 308 GTB made its debut at the Paris Salon in 1975. Built to a Pininfarina design by Scaglietti, it retained the Dino 308 GT4’s V8, albeit with dry sump lubrication. It was manufactured in the 1970s-1980s as a successor to the Dino 246 GT and is a 2-seater with sweeping curves and aggressive lines, making it the most recognized and iconic Ferrari road car. The Pininfarina designed body features a pronounced wedge profile, with a rectangular egg-crate aluminium radiator grille below a slim, full-width, satin-black, front bumper. However, there were numerous key design elements of the Dino 246 GT carried through into the body details.

The 308 GTB made its debut at the Paris Salon in 1975. Built to a Pininfarina design by Scaglietti, it retained the Dino 308 GT4’s V8, albeit with dry sump lubrication. It was manufactured in the 1970s-1980s as a successor to the Dino 246 GT and is a 2-seater with sweeping curves and aggressive lines, making it the most recognized and iconic Ferrari road car. The Pininfarina designed body features a pronounced wedge profile, with a rectangular egg-crate aluminium radiator grille below a slim, full-width, satin-black, front bumper. However, there were numerous key design elements of the Dino 246 GT carried through into the body details. These included the scalloped door intakes, twin circular rear light assemblies, and the vertical, concave rear screen, bounded by buttressed sail panels. In essence the shape was a modernization of the Dino, with enough traces of its predecessor to provide a thread of continuity.

The 308 GTB's bodywork was made entirely of glass-reinforced plastic (or GRP), making it very lightweight. Production ran from 1975 through to 1980, during which time 2897 examples were produced in the chassis number range 18677 to 34349. Only 712 of the first Fiberglass dry-sump versions were made and they are very much sought-after by collectors. This 1:18th model is a great stand-in for the much-rarer real thing!
