A brand new offering to the UK from Ferrari is the stunning new Ferrari 458 Spider, which is now available in right hand drive configuration for the first time. These cars are extremely expensive and are being sold for large premiums over the list price. If you don’t want to spend so much money as these cars cost, you should check out some older models of Ferrari which are on the market.
There are many 1970′s and 1980′s Ferrari cars for sale to choose from. Units of virtually every model appear on the market every now and then. Many of the cars produced in great numbers can be found extremely easily and quickly.
There are some important facts to note before you go shopping for 1970′s and 1980′s Ferrari cars for sale. The price of each car depends on its exclusivity, mileage and condition. Super powerful automobiles with superbly performing equipment sell for quite a bit of cash. The same applies to the models made in fairly small numbers. Still, you can readily find an automobile from an extensively produced model in good, but less than perfect condition at an affordable price, you can still find some very good examples of some nice cars even if it’s not the spectacular Ferrari 458.
The 1970′s and 1980′s were not the era of the grand tourers, so you will find fairly few two-seat Ferrari cars of this type with the most notable model being the 365 Daytona which was actually introduced in 1968. The mid-engine V8 models of the brand actually ruled this period. The line began in 1973 with the now iconic Dino 308 GT4, the first Ferrari with a V8 engine. It was followed by the famous 308 GTB and GTS and their different variants made from 1975 to 1989.
The Ferrari Testarossa, meaning redhead in Italian, is one of the most exclusive and emblematic models of the 1980′s. Introduced in 1984, this gorgeous automobile featured a powerful V12 engine that allowed it to reach the amazing speed of 180 mph. The mid-engine Mondial model with two plus two configuration is another one of the top cars of the 80′s. The variant with highest collector value is the 3.2 Mondial Cabriolet boasting a super luxury design and spaciousness that is rarely found in cars from this manufacturer.
