The Pininfarina-styled Ferrari 308 GTB was introduced at the Paris Motor Show in 1975 as a supplement to the Bertone-shaped 2+2 Dino 308 GT4 and a direct replacement for the 2-seater Dino 246. Its F106 AB V8 engine was equipped with four twin-choke Weber 40DCNF carburetors and single coil ignition. American versions were 240 PS (177 kW; 237 bhp) at 6. 00 rpm due to emissions control devices. European specification cars used dry sump lubrication. Cars destined to the Australian. Japanese and US market were fitted with a conventional wet sump engine from the GT4.
