Texas Classic Cars Of Dallas presents this 1982 Ferrari Mondial 8. This Ferrari is a great running and driving car, the sound of a Ferrari is like no other even this 1982 example. Driving this car down the road turns lots of heads and thumbs up, although it could use some cosmetic repair, it is still a great car. The Engine runs smooth and strong , the transmission does not grind , and shifting though gears is as smooth as butter. Suspension is stiff and strong like a Ferrari should, it turns corners with great versatility. Cosmetically it could use some TLC, the paint is original that could use a professional buff , currently it is a 7/10 , the interior is a 5/10, and we would recommend you getting it reupholstered. The Ferrari Mondial has never gained much popularity among the Ferrari following, which is actually quite strange, because its driving qualities were all the same highly praised. In view of the substantial price hikes to which almost all Ferrari oldies are currently subject, the Mondial is still a reasonably affordable Ferrari, but even the prices of this model will eventually go up. Come by our showroom to check this Ferrari and many other great classic, Located at 1912 W. Mockingbird Ln ,Dallas , Texas 75235.

Ferrari revealed their replacement for the 308 GT4 at the Geneva Auto Show in 1980. The Mondial 8 was styled by Pininfarina and sat on a wheelbase that was four inches longer than its predecessor. The car’s stretched ride afforded more leg room for rear passengers and made the 2+2 configuration more practical than the 308 GT4. The Mondial 8 was powered by the same transverse 3,929-cc V-8 that was in the 308 GT4, now with Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and 214 hp. The Ferrari Mondial 8 became available in the U.S. in 1982, and while the press praised it for its ergonomics, build quality, and handling, its acceleration was not on par with the 308 GT4, which was carbureted and lighter. In order to address these criticisms Ferrari introduced the Mondial Quattrovalvole in 1983, replacing the two-valve motor with a four-valve-per-cylinder version of the now familiar 3 liter V-8. The Mondial Quattrovalvole not only performed better with its new four-valve heads, but was also available as a convertible from 1984 on. With more power and an open air option, the Mondial QV largely addressed the nits that owners and enthusiasts picked with the original 1982 car. Fewer than 7,000 Mondials were built over the course of four series. They are all comfortable, entertaining, and fun to drive for a modern family Ferrari. While the Mondial has a reputation for being maintenance intensive, this can largely be mitigated if a prospective buyer focuses on cars with solid service histories and evidence of disciplined preventative maintenance. Electrical issues with power windows and hatch releases as well as the complex top on Cabriolets are particular areas to review, and all Mondials up until the middle of the third series (3.2) had metric wheels that limit your tire choice to the costly and dated Michelin TRX metric radials. Aftermarket wheels on early cars are fairly common as a result of this. The belt service on the 1989-93 3.4-liter Mondial t requires that the engine be removed from the car, whereas all earlier cars can be serviced while the engine remains in the car. Mondial 8 Production started: 1980. Production ended: 1982. Total production: 703 (145 Right Hand Drive) First serial number: 31075. Last serial number: 41727.
