Ferrari 308 GTB QV 1975–1985

PIRELLI CINTURATO P7 - Ferrari 308 GTB Quattrovalvole on 16

Ferrari 308 GTB Quattrovalvole on 16" PIRELLI CINTURATO P7 Tyres

  • Ferrari developed the 308 even further by developing the Quattrovalvole, or 308 QV, with 4 valves per cylinder.
  • These cars stuck with the 220/55 WR 390 Michelin TRX tyres initially, then later cars moved onto 16" wheels.
  • It is worth referencing that when Ferrari did put their 308 GTB qv and 308 GTS qv onto 16" wheels they didn't fit wider tyres, they fitted thinner front tyres.
  • For a 308 Quattrovalvole on 16" wheels, we recommend the 205/55YR16 PIRELLI CINTURATO P7 on the front, and 225/50 YR 16 PIRELLI CINTURATO P7 on the rear.

  • A very common thought among people is that "bigger is better," and so many people with these cars often want to take off their standard wheels and fit wider tyres. If this were the better option for the car, then Ferrari would have done it themselves.

History of the Ferrari 308 GTB QV

Ferrari 308 GTB Quattrovalvole

Introduced in 1982, the Ferrari 308 GTB Quattrovalvole represented a significant evolution in the 308 series, particularly with its advanced Quattrovalvole (Italian for "four valves per cylinder") engine. This change was not only a technical enhancement, improving the car's power output, but also an answer to the strict emission control regulations that had affected the performance of earlier models. The 308 GTB QV was Ferrari's effort to balance performance improvements with regulatory compliance.

The heart of the 308 GTB QV was its naturally aspirated V8 engine, producing 240 hp (177 kW) at 7000 rpm for the European specification cars, and slightly less for the US versions at 230 hp (172 kW). This engine also delivered a maximum torque of 260 Nm (192 lb. ft) at 5000 rpm. Power was delivered to the road through rear-wheel drive and a 5-speed manual gearbox.

The 308 GTB QV retained the classic Pininfarina styling that had made the original 308 GTB, launched in 1975, an icon in the automotive world. However, it introduced nuanced yet impactful changes, including a deeper front spoiler and a redesigned radiator grille. The interior saw refinements too, enhancing both comfort and aesthetic appeal with features like hand-stitched leather, a three-spoke MOMO steering wheel, and the iconic gated shifter.

As for performance, the Ferrari 308 GTB QV had a top speed of around 156 mph (251 km/h), and the dry weight of the car was approximately 1,275 kg (2,811 lbs).

The 308 GTB QV was produced until 1985 and is celebrated for its perfect blend of Ferrari's racing heritage with practical road car features. With its balanced handling, impressive power, and iconic design, the model has become a highly sought-after classic among collectors and enthusiasts, representing an essential chapter in Ferrari's history.
