A cheaper four-seater alternative to Ferrari’s 400i, the Mondial was built around 308 GTB running gear. As such, it shared that car’s mechanical upgrades: four valves per cylinder from 1982, 3.2 litres from 1985, then 3.4 litres from a longitudinal engine and transverse gearbox for the Mondial t from 1989. Those four seats, along with less than striking looks (for a Ferrari at any rate), combine to make this the cheapest ticket to the Prancing Horse ball, though not all have been well cared for. A cabriolet version joined the coupé in 1984.
