In October 1973 the Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 2 plus 2, with coachbuilt steel body by Bertone, was announced in Italy as a replacement for the Dino 246GT model. It was followed two years later by the announcement of the 308 GTB coupe. This was a Pininfarina beauty. It was a two-seater with, at first, glass-fibre body constructed by Scaglietti and was a direct replacement for the much-loved 246GT Dino, although the car never actually bore that name. It gained a reputation for possessing the best blend of Ferrari performance and handling. Later, in 1980, came the Mondial 8, intended to be a genuine 2 plus 2.
Wallace A. Wyss, is author of many books on sports cars and himself the owner of a 308 GTS, The book is thoroughly researched and draws on visits to the factory, extensive owner interviews and the opinions of specialists. It is a balanced and fascinating book on this Italian classic.
