In 1980 Ferrari introduced a two-litre version of the 308, the 208 GTB and 208 GTS. Though mainly for the domestic Italian market.
The engine was de-bored to 68.8 mm (giving it an undersquare design) for a total displacement of 1,990.64 cc (121 cu in), resulting in one of the smallest V8 engines ever produced. Fed through four Weber 34 DCNF carburettors, the V8 produced 155 PS (114 kW; 153 bhp) at 6800 rpm.
160 208 GTS and 140 208 GTB cars were produced in 1980 and 1981.
The 208’s engine was given a single KKK turbocharger with wastegate valve, Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection and Marelli electronic ignition. Forced induction increased power to 220 PS (162 kW; 217 bhp) at 7000 rpm.

Forced induction increased power to 220 PS (162 kW; 217 bhp) at 7000 rpm. A GTS version was introduced a year later, in 1983.In 1982 the two-litre 208 was succeeded by a turbocharged and fuel injected version, the 208 GTS turbo unveiled at the Turin Motor Show. It was the first ever turbocharged road-going Ferrari.
Both outside and inside the 208 Turbo was almost identical to the contemporary 308 Quattrovalvole. It could be recognized by NACA ducts in front of the rear wheel well openings and “turbo” badging on the tail and shrouded exhaust pipes; the normally optional deep front spoiler, black roof aileron were standard.
Production ended in 1985 after 437 GTB turbo and 250 GTS turbo cars were produced.
With only 437 total examples made, this is a rare model, especially if you export to the USA.
This particular example is with our European partner in Belgium nand ready for export.
