he told me it is there in the showroom for some 6 years nd no work is going on it. Tell me what’do’ya’ll think should be done to the owner??

This Ferrari has been shot and reported by Shapur in Autocar about three or so years ago when a story on Ferrari's in India was done. Needed extensive engine work at that point... if the poor thing was submerged, i bet its a lot worse. Would make Enzo cry up above no doubt.

Yeah sure at first you install these parts in your car then later what if those parts wear out and you have to replace them with new ones what do you do then?

Park your car in Panvel or in the BMW basement!

P.S Maverick or sinner can we have interior pics and it will be nice if you could find out whats the problem with the engine! If water went in it i dont think it will stop working! Can it be worked upon! Why is the car lying there why aint it being auctioned! I am sure many people will be intrested to just keep her as a showpeace or redo it!

Hey guys,
i have been trying to get more info. on the 308 but there is no model called 308 GTO?
Because everywhere i have looked i could not find anything. Found GTS and all but no GTO.
Also does it have a fibreglass body?

If she has a fibreglass body, she is an GTS for sure.

Check out www.carsfromitaly.com and click on Ferrari, models, 308 and there you are.
I think she is a 308 but the pics aren't opening up properly. I can only see the thumbnail form of it.
