Also back in 1980, Ferrari debuted the spider version of the GTBi, and it was dubbed the 308 GTSi. The "i" on the end of the model name was an indicator that the car was equipped with fuel injection. Produced until 1983, only 1,749 of these old-school Ferraris were produced, and this included right-hand-drive configurations.

Blanketed in the bright hue of Rosso Corsa red, this Ferrari is sure to grab attention wherever it goes. A special ordered interior features two-tone red and black seats complete with unique stitching. Under the hood is a mid-mounted aluminum V8 engine backed by a 5-speed transmission. This Ferrari generated 214-bhp in European models ands the models sold within the US were given 205-bhp. This car reached a top speed of 149 miles per hour (240 km/h).
