SOME HISTORY:The GT4 was a groundbreaking model for Ferrari by beingthe first production Ferrari to feature the mid-engined V8 layout that would become the bulk of Ferrari's business in the succeeding decades, and was the first production Ferrari with
Bertone. From the cockpit the driver sees only the road. It has perfect 360 degree visibility, no blind spots, upright and comfortable seating position, a real trunk, a back seat for soft luggage, and very easy engine access. Enzo Ferrari himself took a major role in its design, even having a mock-up made where he could sit in the car to test different steering, pedals and cockpit seating positioning.The chassis was atubularspace framebased on the Dino 246, but was stretched for a 2,926.90mm (115.2in)wheelbase to make room for the second row of seats. The suspension was fully independent, withdouble wishbones,anti-roll bars, coaxial telescopicshock absorbersandcoil springson both axles. Niki Lauda helped set up the chassis.

The 3.0L (2927cc) V8 was mountedtransverselyintegrally joined with the 5-speedtransaxlegearbox. The engine had analuminiumalloyblockandheads, 16-valvesanddual overhead camshaftsdriven bytoothed belts; it produced 255hp (190kW) in the European version and 240hp (179kW) in the American. The induction system used fourWeber40 DCNFcarburetors.
