Limited production GTB, designed by Pininfarina and introduced at the September 1985 Frankfurt Motor Show, this 1988.5 Ferrari 328 GT Berlinetta is one of 1,344 units produced. Now showing only 16,095 miles from new, with a Ferrari Classiche ‘Red Book’ certification, a Ferrari Club of America 2021 Platinum Award, original owners’ books and jack kit, tools, interior light and recent major service records.
The name '328' was attributed to its 3.2-liter eight-cylinder engine, which is always the focal point for Ferrari. The transversely mounted DOHC V8 engine sported an enlarged bore and stroke with Bosch K-Jetronic Fuel injection and could produce 270 horsepower and maximum 163 mph. Standard was a five-speed manual transaxle with the 288 GTO adapted steering rack in the 1988.5 and later cars, a tubular-steel chassis with an independent suspension with anti-roll bars and disc brakes made for one of the most balanced Ferrari’s of its era.
Other performance equipment includes a limited-slip differential, convex 16-inch Speedline five-spoke alloy wheels, the iconic Ferrari gated shifter, a Blaupunkt cassette stereo, power windows and standard air conditioning.
Pininfarina, once again, penned a masterful sports car which was a more aerodynamic and elegant version of the predecessor 308. A GTB and GTS version was produced between 1985-1990, but it was the later GT Berlinetta’s that had the more praised combination of style and performance.
The Italian Coachbuilders designed the body with featured pop-up headlights, integrated fog lights, side air intakes, dual side mirrors, a black spoiler mounted over the rear window, and quad exhaust tips exiting through the rear valance. Interiors in both the GTB and GTS were revamped, again inspired by the 288 GTO, with a redesigned center console, improved switchgear, more plush seats and a larger feeling cabin.
