The 208 Turbo, introduced in 1982, was the first time that Ferrari fitted a turbocharger on a marketed model. The 219-hp Ferrari delivers a performance that lives up to its attractiveness.

This specific example is in wonderful, well-preserved condition, with flawless bodywork and original beige leather highlighted by pleasant patina. This 208 GTS Turbo was sold new in Italy and includes a stamped logbook with various services carried out at the time. It’s been in the hands of a collector and racing driver from Lyon for the past four years — and displays a mileage of 85,000 km. A major service was carried out by specialist Caldéroni in November 2019.

The 208 Turbo is a rare car. The GTS is even more desirable than the GTB version, thanks to its retractable roof.
