The Mondial was, at the time, one of Ferrari’s most commercially successful models, with over 6,000 examples produced over its thirteen-year run. The Mondial underwent many updates throughout its production with four distinct variants produced that started with the Mondial 8 coupé launched in 1980, the vehicle which served as the sole V8-engined Grand Touring or “GT” vehicle within the Ferrari range. This example has been part of a predominant Orange County collection for over 10 years.
This matching numbers car has been meticulously maintained, driven primarily to cars and coffee events. The car was treated to an interior retrim with new leather seats in original navy blue, which included stitched Cavallino headrests. The car was fitted with chrome Ferrari 360 rims and wears its original blue paint. This classic Enzo era Mondial has had a recent service including replacement of all fluids, new plugs, timing, new battery, oil change, radiator flush, and tire/brake inspection.
The car has a clean California title with no history of damage. The exterior is in very good condition, with 2 small surface rust spots as seen in the photos. This Pininfarina designed Mondial 8 is one of only 703 examples built with Ferrari’s most reliable engine, the 308, a 3 liter 8 cylinder producing 214 BHP. The 5-speed manual gearbox shifts through its classic “gated shifter” cleanly with no synchro grinding. This is an excellent daily driver that is one of Ferrari’s most economical drivetrains to maintain.
