home Suspension 
The suspension is standard Ferrari and largely a holdover from the 246. It is a tube frame, though in this case the tubes happen to be square. Each corner is supported by double wishbones with Koni shocks surrounded by coil springs. Vented disk brakes provide the stopping power with ducts to funnel cool air to the front. Steering is rack and pinion and though it lacks power assist it is light and precise, improving with speed. The wheelbase is a tad over 100 inches, about eight inches longer than its cousins the 246 and the 308 GTB/GTS.
