$125,000.00Price

Rare opportunity to purchase a 1986 Ferrari Mondial 3.2 coupe. Rosso Corsa with crema, this desirable matching numbers example is in the most sought after spec. One of only 91 right hand drive Mondial 3.2 cars ever produced from a total production run of 987 cars between 1985 and 1988. Delivered new on 6 May 1986 by Italian Motors Ltd Hong Kong. Meticulously maintained, this car has recently undergone a timing belt change and major service so is ready to be enjoyed by its new owner. Full log books and detailed service history from new accompany the car, along with the original jack kit. Fitted with the original factory alloys and new Michelin TRX tyres. Would suit a discerning collector or an astute Ferrarista looking to secure a fine example of a rare RHD Mondial 3.2.

 

The Mondial 3.2 was first presented at the 1985 Frankfurt Auto Show in September that year along with the all new Ferrari 328. The Mondial 3.2 was produced in a total of 987 units from 1985 to 1988. Chassis numbers for 3.2 Mondial's range from 58277 to 79671, with this particular car being chassis number 61681. The Mondial was one of Ferrari's most commercially successful models over its thirteen-year run, despite the fact that it was more expensive than other new Ferrari models at the time. The Mondial underwent many updates throughout its production run with four distinct variants produced: the Mondial 8, Mondial QV, Mondial 3.2, and Mondial t. All but the Mondial 8 were released in both coupé and cabriolet (convertible) body form.

 

The Mondial 3.2 was available in both Coupé and Cabriolet forms, styling refreshed with restyled and body-coloured bumpers similar to the 328. This new styling saw more integrated indicators and driving lamps, and new alloy wheels with a more rounded face. The Mondial 3.2 also boasted a major interior update with an ergonomic layout and a more rounded instrument binnacle. Later cars, from 1987 onwards also sported ABS brakes. The 1988 Mondial 3.2 would be the final model year that retained the relatively low maintenance costs of the 308/328 drivetrain, allowing major service items like timing belt and clutch replacement performed with the engine/transmission still in the car.

 

Like the new Ferrari 328, the Mondial 3.2 engine grew in both bore and stroke. The V8 engine of the Mondial 3.2 was basically the same design as that used in the Mondial Quattrovalvole model, but fitted with Bosch K Jetronic fuel injection and Marelli electronic ignition to produce a claimed 270bhp at 7000rpm. It was of a 90 degree configuration, with belt driven twin overhead camshafts per bank, having a total capacity of 3185cc. With a bore and stroke of 83mm x 73mm, bearing factory type reference F 105 C 000 for European market cars. 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 wet sump.

 

With older gated Ferrari prices continuing to climb worldwide, the extremely rare Mondial 3.2 represents sound buying. Mondials have been slowly rising in value over the past few years, but can be best summed up by this quote from the European classic car experts at Hagerty: "The Mondial has been the perennial underdog Ferrari along with the V-12 400i/412. Both are having the last laugh, but Mondial prices in particular have been climbing. Offered in 2+2 coupe and convertible body styles, the Mondial shares the revvy 308/328/348 flat-plane crank V-8 with all of the visceral thrills that entails. Striking Pininfarina looks, decent reliability, Ferrari sounds and room in back for the kids? What’s not to like?" —Hagerty
