Ferrari 308 GTB MAT

Ref # C3062

History
In the beginning of 1976, Ferrari homologated their 308 test car and began initial tests around Fiorano. This car was intended to be capable of races like Le Mans, but never raced probably due to Fiat's restrictions on Ferrari. Ferrari initially called their new car the Versione Sport and offered the engine upgrades to potential race teams. Not soon after, Ferrari changed their minds and decided to outsource manufacturing of the car to Giuliano Michelotto who had prepared the successful Lancia Stratos out of his Padova-based facility. The Ferrari 308 GTB was launched at the Salon de l'Auto in Paris, just two years after the 308 GT4. Ferrari got the FIA group 4 homologation papers for the 308 GTB in November 1976.
