I think collector car enthusiasts in Europe have long valued originality more than US collectors. I wrote about two 1965 Shelby GT350s in 2012 that clearly demonstrated this trend in the US. But now it is out in the open with the sale in Arizona recently at the Gooding auction of two1956 Mercedes-Benz 300SL coupes - one fully restored and the other almost completely original. They were even the same color combination although the restored car had an interior color change. which can be done on a restoration but not on an original car. The restored 300SL sold for $1. 02. 00 and the un-restored version sold for $1. 97. 00 at the same auction. This is a hefty 35% premium for originality. The irony is that the owner of the restored car has much more money into his 300SL but he received a lot less!The 308 GTBi is one of the rarest Ferraris built with only 494 examples being made. 308 GTBi/GTSi. The Quattrovalvole part of the model name referred to the four valves per cylinder heads on the engine. which provided increased power over the preceding model. Visually the new model was very similar to the outgoing one. but could be recognized by the addition of a slim louvre panel in the front lid to aid radiator exhaust air exit. paired electrically operated door mirrors with a small enamel Ferrari badge on the shell. a revised radiator grille with rectangular driving lights at the extremities. and rectangular (instead of round)side repeater lights. The interior also received some minor alterations. and cloth seat centres became available as an option to the standard full leather. while the leather rim satin black three spoke steering wheel featured a triangulated section around the horn push. The removable grained satin black finished roof panel was stowed in a vinyl cover behind the seats when not in use. As with the preceding series of 308 models. USA market cars could be identified by heavier bumper assemblies. and rectangular side marker lights on the wings. The V8 engine was essentially of the same design as that used in the 308 GTSi model. apart from the four valves per cylinder heads. It was of a 90 degree configuration. with belt driven twin overhead camshafts per bank. having a total capacity of 2926 cc. with a bore and stroke of 81 mm (3. 2 in) x 71 mm (2. 8 in). with wet sump lubrication. bearing factory type reference F 105 AB 000 for European market cars. The claimed power output for main market European cars was 240 bhp (179 kW; 243 PS) at 7000 rpm. and 235 bhp (175 kW; 238 PS) at 6800 rpm for US market variants. The engine was transversely mounted in unit with the all synchromesh five speed transmission assembly. which was below. and to the rear of the engine's sump. The gear and final drive ratios were altered to suit the revised characteristics of the four valves per cylinder engine. One other significant benefit of the QV four valve heads was the replacement of the non-QV models sodium valves which have been known to fail at the joint between the head and the stem.
