Ferrari 308 Vs 328

When the Ferrari 308 its debut in 1975 it was immediately and quickly became the foundation for the firm. The first 18 months of of 308 GTBs had bodies made of glassfibre, but in mid 1977, a switch was to all metal construction. These these glassfibre models only) are in demand because are lighter (by at least 125 kg) and because engines are completely unfettered by sapping exhaust emissions

After the change to metal the 308 went into decline. At the carburetor engine kept a quoted output of 255 bhp. were the days when could still quote figures by thinking of a nicely number; it would have more honest to claim or 230bhp.) Early in 1980 K-Jetronic injection was fitted and the regulations reduced power to making the 308 GTBi the slowest car of the

By the end of 1981 Ferrari had developed 4 heads for the 3 liters V8 and these were called 308 GTB/GTS On a new honest rating system the gave 240bhp at 7000 Though this car was heavier the original glassfibre cars was completely restored.

In 1985 came the first redesign with the 328 GTB/GTS. capacity was increased to 3185cc and is up to 270bhp making the 328 the fastest of series of Ferraris. With the new to weight ratio of 5kg/bhp the 328 was in the eighties supercar league.

On the handling front the 328 is very reminiscent of its ancestor. It corners tending to understeer a little and hardly any body roll at all as rise. The car just goes corners and it has the useful facility of its line neatly when you off in mid bend. The old 308 behaves the same way but greater slip angles at speeds on X tires. The brakes of the 328 are a improvement postponing lockup at the The ride of both cars is equal with maybe a advantage for the older car with its flexible tire sidewalls.

The metamorphosis of the 308 into the 328 has made the car not more sensible and practical but faster and more economical. this hardly seems the in such a car the fact that it is by substantial performance increase the 328 the best and most practical to

The Ferrari 308 and 328 are very special to me. Their inspired packaging them a joy to use, their and handling are stimulating and their are a supreme Pininfarina achievement.
