An amazing example of these mid-engined, V8, four-seat Grand Tourers

  • Well appointed, comfortable, genuine 2+2 accommodation, still good for 140mph

  • Dating from 1991, this left-hand drive 3.4T has only covered some 42,500km

  • Fully restored as a showpiece to demonstrate the work of Scuderia Scaglietti of Chiswick

  • Finished in Rosso Scuderia with a bespoke multi-coloured interior. Tubi exhaust

Launched at the 1980 Geneva Auto Salon, the Mondial was the first Ferrari to depart from the company’s familiar three-digit naming scheme and its name was inspired by their famous Mondial sports-racers from the fifties. The Mondial saw Ferrari return to Pininfarina as its choice of styling house, and it was sold as a mid-sized coupé and, eventually, a cabriolet. Conceived as a 'more usable' model, offering the practicality of four seats with the performance of a mid-range Ferrari and hopefully attracting a slightly wider audience than their traditionally more focused two-seaters. The car was not built as a monocoque in a conventional way, but instead, the steel outer body was produced by the famous Italian coachbuilder Carrozzeria Scaglietti, just down the road in nearby Modena and clothed a lightweight steel box-section space frame.

The Mondial was the first Ferrari where the entire engine/gearbox/rear suspension assembly was mounted on a detachable steel sub-frame, making engine removal for a major rebuild or cylinder head removal much easier than it had been on earlier models.  Introduced in 1989, the Ferrari Mondial 3.4 T was the 'spearhead for a new generation of V8 Ferraris' and the final version of the Mondial. The 'T' was a reference to the new engine and transmission layout that now saw the engine mounted longitudinally with the gearbox transverse (forming a T), a characteristic of their Formula 1 '312T' which had just won the 1989 World Championship. This set-up would become the standard for all future mid-engined V8 Ferraris beginning with the 348 and continuing through to the 360.

This particular 1991 Mondial 3.4T, registration J117GEX, is a left-hand drive example that was restored as a showpiece to demonstrate the wonderful quality of work that Scuderia Scaglietti of Chiswick was capable of producing. Starting with a really sound car, they spent many months stripping the car back to bare metal and it is now superbly finished in Rosso Scuderia. The interior has been trimmed in a modern, multi-coloured theme, with inspiration from the current 'personalisation program' offered by Ferrari on their latest models. This, no-expense-spared, running restoration means that the new custodian will own a unique Ferrari with 2 + 2 versatility. The exhaust has been upgraded to a Tubi system and had the catalytic converter removed (not included) to improve the sound of the V8. The car has only covered some 42,500 km from new and was originally registered in Switzerland prior to being purchased by the current owner in April 2016.
