That's a beautiful car, a 24-25 year old Ferrari 328 GTE noted for the music made by its V-8 engine. Looks terrific in your photos.
I don't know anything about them, except that they're high performance cars. What's the displacement of the V8 in that little car?
Also, too, I'm making prints from a few of these NYC shots, and I took a look at 100% view. Just left of the right side tail lights there's the number "308" and "quatrovalvols."
Sorry about that Carl. Thought the car was the later model 328, a continuation of the 308. The QV was produced from 1982-85 making it 28-31 years old. Nearly 750 were produced making it reasonably rare, but a flood for Ferrari. It's fuel injected, 4 valve per cylinder V-8 produced 240 hp mated to a 5 speed manual transmission. Not powerful by modern standards, but still a true, fun sports car. It is beautiful and affordable for a Ferrari. 663
Fascinating. I didn't realize they were made in such small quantity. 750 units produced over a three year run? Wow.
For Ferrari that is a large number of cars. Currently the 308 or 328 can be found for about the cost of a year or two old SUV. Care must be taken that all the service has been done on the car, or the cost could double. These are among the least expensive Ferraris out there. It is still a drop-dead gorgeous car. BTW, love your NYC street photography.
