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.
FERRARI 328 GTS TURBO - Walkaround and sound rev 2013 HQ
Here' another video from one of greatest Official Ferrari Meeting in the
south Italy, now in its 5th edition. Organized by "LO CHALET DEI CERRI", an
unique Resort born in the suggestive DOLOMITI LUCANE in Basilicata nestled
in the mountains's woods of San Severino Lucano (PZ), a real paradise for
those who love peace and unspoiled landscapes. The Hotel, as well as
offering typical products of quality and luxury rooms, 5 year now gives us
a wonderful event which sees the partecipation of over 30 teams annualy.
This year 37 Ferraris from Basilicata, Puglia, Campania, Sicily, Lazio and
Calabria atteded at the 5TH AMICI FERRARISTI, so be sure not to miss any of
the videos I've uploaded in the appropriate playlist.
In this video a stunning classic red Ferrari from '80s, the Ferrari 328 GTS
turbo, shows all its magnificence
parading at the Festival giving me the chance to record all detail and
particular of this automotive cult and record its noisy start-up launch and
its lovely italian roar while driving away from the event.
The Ferrari 328 was produced since 1989 to replace the Ferrari 308 as
"little" Grand Touring of the Maranello's Prancing Horse and, with over
7,400 pieces made, its one of most loved Ferraris ever.
Originaly the Ferrari 328 was produced in two versions, the GTB
(Berlinetta) and the GTS (Spider) respectively the coupe and the cabriolet
edition of the car. Both were equipped with the same V8 3,2 litre engine
with 4-valve/cylinder that developed 270 hp and 313 Nm of torque. Thanks of
this little monster and at its lightness, the car reaches the 100 Km/h in
only 5,5 seconds for a Top Speed of 270 Km/h.
The price at its launch was of 50.000 € but now you can't find a model
sold at less then 130.000 €.
Afterwards, following the tax imposed by the italian government on the
luxury cars, Ferrari produced two new turbo versions, the related Ferrari 328 GTB turbo and Ferrari 328 GTS turbo, mounting a little 2000 cc engine that could
develop the considerable power of 254 hp and a torque of 328 Nm.
The performances of this "economic" cars dropped to 253 Km/h and 5,9
seconds for 0-100, not bad for a 2,0 litre.
In later years Ferrari worked on this incredible engine applying a second
turbo buster and placing it
longirudinally like in the 288 GTO having a power of 400 hp. This prototype
will be the basis of one of better supercar's engine ever: the Ferrari F40.
The Ferrari 328's production will over in 1989, when the car was replaced
in its turn by Ferrari 348.
Complete walk around with each detail like interior, wheels, engine, logo
and lights, driving, start-up and LOUD Exhaust rev sound.

Ferrari Testarossa--Video Test Drive with Chris Moran
Ferrari Testarossa--Automotive Media Group Test Drive and Video Walk Around
Review 2011 with Chris Moran.
In 1982 Pininfarina was commissioned to style a 12-cylinder Ferrari with
radiators in the flanks like a racing car, GT-level luggage and storage
space, extreme comfort, and performance to top the road-car line of the
world's premier sports car manufacturer. The Testarossa was to be shaped
partly by the wind tunnel to ensure clean airflow, low noise and high speed
stability. Rear location of the radiators made the car's aerodynamics even
more important as passive direction of air to and from the engine bay had
to be very effective. The result of Pininfarina's labors was easily the
most recognizable and influential car of its time. The Testarossa is
unmistakable at any distance, and impossible to ignore.
Based on the outgoing Berlinetta Boxer that had so admirably preceded it,
the Testarossa was intended to be a faster, better handling, more spacious and
more luxurious car than the BB, a machine that wasn't initially legal for
sale in the US due to federal safety and emissions legislation. However,
the Testarossa was designed from the outset as a world car - legal in every
Testarossa debuted at the Paris Auto Show in September 1984 as a
replacement for the 512 BB. Ferrari's Testarossa was half of perhaps the
greatest double act in supercar history. An era defining rivalry saw it
pitched head-to-head with Lamborghini's awesome Countach and between them,
they were the kings of the road.
Technically the Testarossa was almost identical to the 512 BBi it replaced,
but on the outside the two were quite different. Functionality was the
entire reason why the Testarossa looked so different. The single rear
mounted radiator used in the two 'BB' models was replaced by one on either
side of the engine. The engine alone was already quite substantial in
width, but with a radiator on either side, the complete package needed a
two meter wide rear body to house it properly.
This was not the first Testa Rossa in Ferrari's history. It was first used
as 'TR' almost thirty years earlier for Ferrari's four and twelve cylinder
engined sports-prototype racers. Italian for 'red head', Testarossa
referred to the bright red cylinder heads used on the engines. The most
famous of these was the multiple 24 Hours of LeMans winning 250 TR.
Motor racing had proven in the preceding decade that mounting the engine
behind the driver was an improvement over mounting it in front.
The engine was a modified version of the 512 BB. It had four-valves per
cylinder, Marelli electronic ignition, Bosch K-Jetronic fuel injection, and
capable of producing 390 bhp from the 4943 cc horizontally opposed 12
cylinder. The zero-to-sixty time was about 5.3 seconds and top speed was
above 180 mph.
Ferrari's five-lite Flat-12 was ultimately derived from the 1975 312 T
Grand Prix contender, these cars going on to win both F1 Drivers and
Constructors Championships. The Testarossa's look, performance and
reputation made it perhaps the ultimate eighties status symbol, a
reputation it could well do without today. Using a welded tubular steel
frame, the chassis wasn't too dissimilar from the outgoing BB, just a few
dimensional tweaks being made here and there. The wheelbase was stretched
from 2500 to 2550mm, the track widened and a removable engine subframe used
that could be un-bolted from the main chassis in order to allow easier
access to the engine. Displacement of the 180° Flat-12 motor was 4942cc,
this thanks to a bore and stroke of 82 x 78mm respectively. Output was
390bhp at 5300rpm, compression being set at 9.2:1. An important revision
came in the form of Ferrari's four-valve cylinder heads (known as
Quattrovalvole), all the various Berlinetta Boxer's having only ever
featured two-valve heads.
This Testarossa was built for the US market and made its way into those
showrooms during 1985. The vehicle was designed to comply with the US
emissions, regulations, and safety restrictions.
