Manhattan Classic Car Club New York - Part 2
Michael explains the point system for taking out the cars. We then take a
drive around the city in a stunning 1989 Ferrari 328 and ask ourselves: why
do Italians have long legs and short arms? We learn to how not to stumble
out of a sports car, and take a look at the tough sounding 1967 Chevelle
Super Sport, the awesome 1966 Fastback Mustang, the very popular
Convertible Bentley, the 1972 "Lady Killer" Cheyenne pick up truck , and
the beautiful 1972 Detomaso Pantera.
On track in a Ferrari 328 GTS
I ride in my friend's 328 GTS, with many other Ferraris, on Road Atlanta
for the Ferrari parade laps during the 2010 Petit Le Mans racing weekend.
After uploading countless videos of racing on this track, I finally get to
experience Road Atlanta and it's vast elevation changes for myself!
If you don't want to sit through the whole video, skip to 5:57 for some
amazing acceleration sounds! Enjoy! :)
Ferrari 328 GTS--Video Test Drive with Chris Moran
A pristine Ferrari 328 GTS from D&M Motorsports, presented by Chris Moran
The Ferrari 328 GTB and GTS was the successor to the Ferrari 308 GTB and
GTS. While largely based on the 308 GTB and GTS respectively, small
modifications were made to the body style and engine, including an increase
in engine displacement to 3.2 L (3185 cc). 7,400 Ferrari 328s were produced
by the time the model was replaced by the new 348 in 1989, bringing the
total for the 308/328 generation to nearly 20,000. The 328 is considered by
some Ferrari enthusiasts to be one of the most reliable Ferraris; unlike
some models, most engine maintenance can be performed without lifting the
engine from the vehicle.
The GTB referred to the Gran Turismo Berlinetta (coupé) body while the GTS
was a Gran Turismo Spider (targa top). In 1985, the 328 retailed from
$58,400-$62,500 ($115,300-$123,400 in 2008 dollars) in the United States.
This price included a gas-guzzler tax.
The 328 GTS model, together with the fixed roof 328 GTB, were the final
developments of the normally aspirated transverse V8 engine 2-seat series.
The 328 figures in the model title referred to the total cubic capacity of
the engine, 3.2 litres, and 8 for the number of cylinders. The new model
was introduced at the 1985 Frankfurt Salon alongside the Mondial 3.2
Essentially the new model was a revised and updated version of the 308 GTS,
which had survived for eight years without any radical change to the
overall shape, albeit with various changes to the 3-litre engine. The 328
model presented a softening of the wedge profile of its predecessor, with a
redesigned nose that had a more rounded shape, which was complemented by
similar treatment to the tail valance panel. The revised nose and tail
sections featured body colour bumpers integral with the valance panels,
which reflected the work done concurrently to present the Mondial 3.2
models, with which they also shared a similar radiator grille and front
light assembly layout. Thus all the eight-cylinder cars in the range shared
fairly unified front and rear aspects, providing a homogeneous family
image. The Exhaust air louvres behind
the retractable headlight pods on the 308 series disappeared, coupled with
an increase in the size of the front lid radiator Exhaust air louvre, which had been introduced on
the 308 Quattrovalvole models, whilst a new style and position of exterior
door catch was also provided. The interior trim also had a thorough
overhaul, with new designs for the seat panel upholstery and stitching,
revised door panels and pulls, together with more modern switchgear, which
complemented the external updating details. Optional equipment available
was air conditioning, metallic paint, Pirelli P7 tyres, a leather
dashboard, leather headlining to the removable roof panel plus rear window
surround, and a rear aerofoil (standard on Japanese market models).
In the middle of 1988 ABS brakes were made available as an option, which
necessitated a redesign of the suspension geometry to provide negative
offset. This in turn meant that the road wheel design was changed to
accommodate this feature. The original flat spoke "star" wheels became a
convex design, in the style as fitted to the 3.2 Mondial models, whether
ABS was fitted or not.
The main European market 328 GTS models had a tubular chassis with a
factory type reference F 106 MS 100. Disc brakes, with independent
suspension via wishbones, coil springs, and hydraulic shock absorbers, were
provided all round, with front and rear anti roll bars. There were various
world market models, each having slight differences, with right and left
hand drive available.
