The 328 really is quite a striking car. You can imagine that the designers at Pininfarina must have loved the opportunity and freedom they were afforded when penning these cars. Just take a look at the lines and scoops on this example, as you look forward along the drivers side… something to behold.
As you would expect with such a low mileage example, there are barely any imperfections in the bodywork. We have detailed anything observed below.
Wheels & Tyres
The car is sitting on Goodyear tyres, wrapped on the original 7 and 8 inch 5 star alloys. The alloys across the car are completely unmarked, as can be seen in the videos and photographs. You’ll notice these are the flat wheels, not domed, as this car is the more desirable pre-ABS variant.
The bodywork across the car is immaculate. You wouldn’t expect anything less on a car like this Ferrari that has only been driven just over 8,000 miles. The only blemish is a small dent on the boot, likely caused by someone closing the boot. Gary has commission it to be taken out by a dent removal specialist, leaving the bodywork in the great condition you would expect. The shut-lines and panel gaps across the car can be seen to be even throughout in our videos and photographs.
All original paintwork on this Ferrari, as can be observed in the paint depth pictures. The colour across the car is as a result even, and the paint is in amazing condition with the car obviously having been dry stored in a garage, out of the sunlight. There are a few stone-chips on the front of the car some of which have been touched up, and this tiny wear is expected with the low mileage usage.
Glass and Trim
All the glass and trim across the car are is in great condition. No fading or scratching was observed, the rubber front black splitter as an example has no markings on it at all observed when we saw the car.
The interior on the 328 GTSi featured some differences and upgrades from the 308 including new modern switch gear and new style door cards. This example has an almost perfect interior, as described below.
Seats and Carpets
Finished in black leather and black carpeting, the interior again is in almost time-warp condition. You’ll see from the video that the interior looks stunning, dark and deep black throughout, there is very little to report back on as you would expect given the mileage. There is some very slight wear on the drivers left back bolster, nothing that a bit of leather treatment can’t resolve.
All of the gauges work as they should, on this very striking and driver focused dash. The rest of the dash is also in time-warp condition, no markings or issues.
Steering Wheel / Gear Stick
The Momo steering wheel and gear stick are in very good condition. No markings observed. The steel gated gear surround shining bright and unblemished too, iconic with Ferraris of the era.
As the car hasn’t been registered in the UK yet, we did not take the car on our usual run. We did however do our normal cold start video, and have some detail from the owner Gary.
Engine and Gearbox
The engine started strongly from cold, as can be observed in our video, with no blue smoke issues and it idled smoothly from cold. Gary tells us that the car goes through the gears with no issues.
Suspension and Brakes
You can see from the pictures of the underside of the car, the suspension looks in great condition, the bushings for the various parts clearly visible.
Gary informs us that the car drives without fault.
