By switching to Bosch fuel injection in March 1981 Ferrari robbed its successful 308 GTB / GTS models of some forty horsepower. Worried about the consequent loss of performance, Maranello executive Eugenio Alzati determined to give the 90-degree 'quad-cam' 2926cc V8 its teeth back. Announced in October 1982, the new QV or 'quattrovalve' model was a revelation. Sporting - as its name suggests - four-valve cylinder heads, it was credited with developing some 240bhp and 192lbft of torque. Emissions friendly, it nevertheless boasted less noise, more power and better throttle response than its predecessor. Reputedly capable of 0-60mph in 5.7 seconds and 158mph, the QV cars once again had the raw speed to match their sublime Pininfarina sculpted looks.
Finished in Nero black with crema interior, this LHD QV has been converted to euro spec lights. Registering just c.24,000 miles, recent expenditure has included a full repaint, new brakes, various engine, suspension and mechanical works, new tyres and a cambelt service. The vendor advises that receipts on file total c.£8,500. Offered with original service book and manual, spare wheel and some tools, the car will be UK registered and comes with an MoT until September 2017.
