With a name reminiscent of the 500 Mondial race cars from the 1950s, the Ferrari Mondial was a replacement model for the Ferrari 308 GT4. The Mondial was the first Ferrari where the entire engine, gearbox and rear suspension assembly was mounted on a detachable steel subframe, making engine removal for a major rebuild or cylinder head removal much easier than it was on previous models. The steel coachwork was taken care of by Carrozzeria Scaglietti and built over a lightweight steel box section space frame. The Mondial 8 is considered one of the marque's most 'practical' vehicles, due to its 214hp, proven drivetrain, four seats and relatively low cost of maintenance; major services can be performed without removing the entire engine/transmission subframe.
Originally registered on 12th November 1986, this Ferrari Mondial is presented in metallic grey with lovely Crema trim which is in very good condition. Having been owned by its latest registered keeper since 1998, the car presents very well and has clearly been well cared for with many invoices from Superformance and a well stamped service booklet combined with all but one MoT test certificate since 1991. Fitted with a sports exhaust which, in the vendors words, "gives this wonderful 32 valve Ferrari the sound of a Formula 1 car, combined with the practicality of four seats, could the kids have more fun?"
Supplied with a V5C registration document together with a good history file containing the original service book, owner's manual and invoices within the leather-bound folder. Accompanied by an MoT test certificate valid until July 2021 combined with a recent service, this is a lovely appreciating classic which we believe to be one of only three UK cars presented in this stunning colour combination and boasting the desirable 3.2 litre Quattrovalvole engine. The Mondial range have increased in value of late as the market realises what an underrated car this really is.The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to COVID-19 guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
Finished in the classic Rosso Corsa with crema hide and Bordeaux carpets. The car was fully optioned with cream leather headlining and black leather dashboard and electric sunroof.
