Ferrari Mondial. 1980–93 (prod. 6,149). 2-door coupé, 2-door convertible. M/R, 2926, 3185, 3405 cm³ (V8 DOHC). Announced to much acclaim at the time with its smart Pininfarina styling (on the old 308 GT4 chassis), Mondial had 2+2 seating and was considered a more usable Ferrari. Mondial 8 at launch, but it met with reliability issues; QV (four-valve head) from 1982, which remedied them, while addressing those who felt the original engine lacked power (160 kW increased to 179 kW). Convertible from 1983. Larger 3·2 from 1985, while more substantial changes followed in 1989 with Mondial t, with engine mounted longitudinally rather than transverse, although the gearbox remained transverse, setting the template for future V8 Ferraris.

Manufacturing location: Maranello, Modena, Italy

Marque: Ferrari | Predecessor: Ferrari 308 GT4
