Showed for the first time at the 1975 Paris Motor Show during the oil crisis, the 308 GTB marked a welcome return to the Pininfarina style after the Dino 308 GT4 designed by Bertone.
Branded as a real Ferrari, no longer under the Dino brand, the new model had changed little from a mechanical point of view, compared to its predecessor. The 3.0-liter engine with dry carter lubrication, derived from Scuderia's experience in Formula 1, was powered by four carburetors and developed a power of 255 HP, enough to push the 1090 kg of the 308 GTB to over 250 kilometers per hour, a decidedly supersonic speed for that time.
It was produced with dry carter lubrication and fiberglass bodywork until April 1977, when the 308 GTB built by Scaglietti switched to the steel bodywork which, however, led to a considerable weight penalty for the GTB (about 80 kg more) resulting in a reduction in performance.
To underline the sporty vocation of the car, the hint of spoilers on the tail, while the stability at high speeds, is due to the suspensions equipped with a remarkable excursion. The reduction of rolling noise also contributed greatly to increasing driving comfort.
The 308 GTB had considerable worldwide sales success and remained in production for 15 years.
