After more than 20 years much of this hardly seems in issue. V8s in Ferraris are an accepted fact. Even though the GT4 remains the only major Ferrari designed by Bertone (the other being a 250 SWB GT) its looks are more accepted as such cars as the Lotus Esprit, the Maserati Bora and Merak, the Fiat X/19 came forth all echoing the lines of the V8 Ferrari. The Dino 308 GT4 actually has something on many of the cars that have succeeded it. With its four Weber carburetors hissing a throaty song, its dual distributors and coils providing the spark, and the wonderful workings of all of its mechanical parts the GT4 harks back to the end of an era before fuel injection, troubling electrics and the omnipresent computers that rule the world of automobiles today. The 308 GT4 is today what so many people said it never was - a true Ferrari.
