Offering the practicality of four seats with the performance of a mid-range Ferrari, the Mondial was aimed at attracting a slightly wider audience than their traditionally more focused two-seaters. The car’s body was not built as a monocoque in the same way as a conventional car but instead, the steel outer body was produced by the famous Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Scaglietti, just down the road in nearby Modena and clothed a lightweight steel box-section space frame. 

The Mondial Quattrovalvole, or QV, of 1982 boosted power to 240bhp, using a combustion chamber design based on that of Ferrari’s Formula One cars. Like the new Ferrari 328, the Mondial's engine grew to 3.2 litres in 1985, with power now at 266bhp. The Mondial 3.2 was first presented at the 1985 Frankfurt Auto Show in September that year. The new model was restyled with and body-coloured bumpers, more integrated indicators and driving lamps, and new alloy wheels with a more rounded face. The 3.2 also boasted a major interior update, with a more ergonomic layout and a more rounded instrument binnacle. Later cars, from 1987 onwards, also sported ABS brakes. The Mondial 3.2 retained the relatively low maintenance costs of the 308/328 drivetrain, allowing major service items like timing belt and clutch replacement performed with the engine/transmission package still in the car.

In current ownership since 2018, this UK-delivered 3.2 litre quattrovalvole model has been in current ownership for 5 years, during which time the car has been dry stored and seldom used. In early 2019 (at the current mileage) the Ferrari was sent to marque specialists Rardley Motors for a cambelt service, a copy of which is available. Upon first glance, the Ferrari may now benefit from a small amount of recommissioning and attention to the paintwork in localised areas, and we note the history on file is limited to the most recent servicing work.

The Mondial model is an affordable yet attractive classic Ferrari, and with a little further improvement we are sure this low mileage example will prove to be a fun modern classic for the summer months.

NOTE: Buyer's should note this vehicle was subject to a Category C insurance claim in early 2006, repaired and returned to the road later in the same year.
