Bonhams to auction Magnum P.I. Ferrari 308 GTS

This beautiful Ferrari 308 GTS from the famous Tom Selleck series Magnum P.I. is set to be auctioned by Bonhams.

The Ferrari 308 GTS was featured during the 1984-1985 filming of the show and was driven by Tom Selleck himself. The car itself is in amazing condition with a low mileage and has been given regular maintenance.  The Quattrovalvole 308 GTS is a great collector’s item.

The 308 GTS has been certified by Ferrari confirming its history. The car only has 36,000 miles on the clock, suggesting that the car was used only for light action and close ups.  The original Ferrari Rossa Corsa paint is still intact on the exterior and the car’s interior trim of tan leather has been re-dyed to maintain the original colour.

The Ferrari has only had two owners since the ending of its star studded history, one of which kept the car for 28 years. The car runs of a V8 engine producing 232bhp and is linked to a 5-speed manual transmission. The car comes with the full history file and original tools.

Magnum P.I.’s 308 GTS will be up for grabs at Bonhams Scottsdale auction starting today, 19th January and is expected to go for around £120,00-£200,000. See Bonhams – lot 95 for more information.
