STORY

The story of the Ferrari 308 GT4 Dino begins in the early 1970s. The 308 GT4 was the first car made by Ferrari to feature a V8 engine, and it was named "Dino" in honor of Enzo Ferrari's son Alfredo "Dino" Ferrari, who had died in 1956 at the age of just 24.

The 308 GT4 was designed by Bertone and designed by Marcello Gandini and was first presented at the Paris Motor Show in 1973.

The 308 GT4's V8 engine had a displacement of 3.0 liters and initially produced around 240 hp. The car was equipped with a 5-speed manual transmission and achieved impressive performance on the road. It is said to be the Ferrari with the best driving characteristics.

Although the 308 GT4 was impressive in terms of performance and design, it was often considered controversial, particularly due to its unconventional 2+2 configuration and Bertone styling.

Despite its initial controversy, the Ferrari 308 GT4 Dino has gained recognition over time and is now considered by some enthusiasts to be an interesting chapter in Ferrari's history. Its unusual design and V8 performance make it a unique vehicle in the brand's history.

PERSONAL STORY

This 308 was first delivered in Austria to Udo Pöschmann. He founded the elite Ferrari Club together with Franz Mayer-Mellnhof and was then its president.

Udo Böschmann came into contact with futuristic design through his parents' house alone; he lived with his parents in the futuristic Villa Beer in Hitzing, which was designed by Josef Frank and Oskar Wlach.
