‘It’s a pow­er­ful and stylish sling­shot’

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - BUYING & SELLING - DAVID SIMISTER ED­I­TOR

Sharp Pin­in­fa­rina suit? Check. Revhappy mid-mounted V8 driv­ing the rear wheels? Check. Gear lever mated to a beau­ti­fully ex­posed gate? Check. The Mondial is a proper clas­sic Fer­rari in ev­ery sense of the word, and one that’s been un­ap­pre­ci­ated by the wider clas­sic mar­ket for far too long.

Years spent in the price dol­drums mean that many ne­glected ex­am­ples out there have been run on a shoe­string and are now look­ing rather worse for wear as a re­sult.

But find one that’s been cher­ished by a Fer­rari devo­tee and you’ll have a stylish, pow­er­ful and sur­pris­ingly prac­ti­cal mid-en­gined sling­shot that’ll re­ward you for years to come.
