308 GTB SUPERCHARGED
The - Need for Speed - has been the foundation of performance enhancement projects almost from the dawn of automobiles. There's many ways to make a car faster and one of the most exotic is to add a supercharger. The device which simply forces air into an engine has been used to bump performance since the late 1800's.
While supercharged Ferraris are a rarity a couple projects come to mind. Texan, Bob Norwood famously used a supercharged flat 12 Ferrari engine to power a 308 styled Funny car. German tuner, Willy Koenig added a supercharger to his turbocharged Testarossa when his customer complained about excessive turbo lag.
Northeast Ferrari wrench, Wil de Groot got bit by the supercharger bug and spent a couple years building his supercharged 308.
We followed the build on Ferrarichat and marveled at the project when the car debuted in Forza magazine. As alchemists are always thinking of their next project, Wil let his creation pass to a new caretaker in favor of a new project. Wil's supercharged 308 GTB is now in our hands and we couldn't be happier.
The project started with a European dry sump 308 GTB. The engine was torn down to the block and rebuilt with new bearings, seals, and gaskets. An intake manifold was custom machined out of billet stock to accept an Opcon (now Vortech) autorotor twin screw supercharger. The list of ancillary modification runs a full page of paper with no stone left unturned in pursuit of making the car as dependable as it is fast.
Cosmetically the paint and body are excellent and set off with a set of custom 17” wheels. The interior is original and in good condition. Mechanically the car is absolutely tractable and beyond fast. It is as comfortable driving in city traffic as it is scorching winding roads.
