Ferrari 308 GTB/GTS pairing stalls at Silverstone
There’s good news for anyone who’s had an eye on these sharp-looking and even sharper-driving mid-engined Ferrari beauties. So far this year, away from the highly collectable early glassfibre Vetroresina model, values have stalled – and on anything less than totally immaculate examples they seem to be gently easing.
Dealer asking prices are still up there, but Silverstone Auctions recently sold a welllooked-after 49,000-mile right-hand-drive GTS with carburettors (always preferred to the later fuel-injected cars) for a below-estimate £51,750, which looked a good buy.
By contrast, at the same auction Silverstone failed to drum up sufficient interest in an even nicer 34,500-mile Uk-market GTB of similar age, for which the owner wanted something close to £77,000.
Maybe there is still a buyer out there willing to pay that for it, but that level is looking a bit like last year’s price – keen sellers may have to adjust their expectations.
