In Saudi Arabia put up for auction tuning Ferrari Dino 308 GT4

The unique Ferrari Dino 308 GT4 with an elevated suspension and off-road tires will be auctioned in Riyadh. Atelier DriverSource finalized a sports car of 1975 in the style of the rally Lancia Stratos: the Italian coupe acquired a utilitarian cross-body kit, additional light and a whip antenna.

The intervention in the “three hundred and eighth” design was not limited to an increase in clearance: the engineers had to reconfigure the steering, replace the standard bumpers with custom steel elements, add a towing hook to the front of the body and paint the lower part of the compartment black. Complete the image 15-inch Michelin tires with high profile 205/70 VR15, mudguards made of fiberglass and engraved Safari logo on the front wings.[IP]&ua=[UA]&domain=[DOMAIN]&page=[PAGE]&secure=[SECURE]&language=[BROWSER_LANGUAGE]&bidfloor=[BIDFLOOR]&gdpr_consent=[GDPR_CONSENT]

Salon 308 Dino GT4 restored to factory configuration, restoring leather trim, velvet inserts and replacing mats. Regular seat belts gave way to four-point production Repa, aluminum pedals and light tinted front glass appeared. Although at one time the “three hundred and eighth” was the debut mid-engined Ferrari model with a 2 + 2 interior layout, this particular car was ordered from the factory in a rare two-seater configuration.

The intervention of tuning masters did not affect the engine and transmission: under the hood, a regular three-liter V8 with four Weber carburetors, which produces 243 horsepower, is under the hood of a Ferrari. Power is transmitted to the drive axle via a five-speed manual gearbox. The standard 308 GT4 is gaining the first hundred in 6.4 seconds – it is obvious that the upgraded sports car is slightly lost in dynamics.

Together with the car, the buyer will be offered an original service book, a copy of the instruction manual, a service history for four decades and a set of factory tools. The auction in Riyadh will be held this weekend. The starting price of the lot is not reported.
