Ferrari 328 GTS 1988 - World Of Classic Cars -

Ferrari 328 GTS 1988

The Ferrari 308, boasting one of the most recognisable silhouettes ever penned by Pininfarina, wore a bold new design compared to Ferrari’s first two-seat, mid-engined road car, the 246 Dino. Its lines came to define Ferrari sports cars of the late ’70s and early ’80s.
Ferrari refined the 308’s design and mechanical attributes in 1985, when they released the 328. It received moulded bumpers, a smaller front grille, and its most readily distinguishable feature, a small roof spoiler that was mounted just aft of the rear seats. There were also interior improvements, which improved ergonomics and made the driving experience more intuitive.

Mechanically, the V-8’s bore and stroke were increased, increasing capacity to 3,185 cubic centimetres. As a result, power was increased to 270 brake horsepower at 7,000 rpm, leading to a top speed of 160 mph and a sprint from 0–60 in just 5.5 seconds.
Today, the 328 GTS is very popular with tifosi for a variety of reasons. Thanks to lessons learned on the hugely popular 308 and the addition of mechanical fuel injection, the 328 proved to be an even better car overall. This model has a reputation for being very reliable and well built; thus, 328 owners are known to drive their cars frequently. For the individual looking for their first Ferrari, a 328 GTS is an excellent choice considering its performance, open-top styling, reliability, and service costs that won't break the bank.
