Repainted in a red “boxer” and matte black color scheme, the 1975 Dino 308 Safari Coupe finally earned its stripes as a Ferrari in ’76. Launched in 1973, the initial 308 featured less than 12 cylinders, rocking a mid-engine layout.
As the brand’s first road car with two-plus-two seating, the 308 is currently on auction with an impressive USD$26,000 modification by the current owner. What was once an ordinary coupe has since transformed into a lifted safari off-roader, featuring new raised suspensions, a custom front bumper, a caged rear bumper, a whip antenna and custom 15-inch steel wheels dressed in Michelin XWX tires.
Powered by its original 3-liter, 240 horsepower V8 engine – the 308’s five-speed manual gearbox and overall powertrain remain intact and unmodified.
