Here we have the perfect starter Classic Ferrari, it is drop dead gorgeous, totally practical and ready for immediate use as soon as the sun is shining. It is a 1990 Ferrari Mondial 3.4t Cabriolet, UK supplied Right Hand Drive, finished in Red with Cream Leather Interior. It is fully optioned and comes with all books, tools etc, and has covered a low 59k Miles from new with a great Service History.

Ferrari's first effort at building a car suitable for markets throughout the world, the Mondial 8 deployed the 308GT4's 3.0-litre quad-cam V8 engine in a lengthened version of the latter's chassis. Transmission and running gear remained much the same, with five-speed transaxle and independent suspension all round.

Although reckoned by some to be less sporting than other Ferraris, the Mondial was still good for 140mph-plus and its ride quality and comfort scored over long distances. Considerably roomier than previous Ferrari 2+2s, the Pininfarina-styled Mondial has been described by Car magazine as, ‘the closest you'll get to supercar family transport.’

Developments included a proper (non-Targa) Cabriolet, the introduction of a more-powerful 'Qv' (quattro-valvole: four-valves-per-cylinder) engine in 1982 and enlargement to 3.2 litres for 1985. But Ferrari had not finished with the Mondial just yet. For 1989 the V8 engine was increased in capacity once again - this time to 3.4 litres - and, demonstrating that racing really does improve the breed, transmitted its 300bhp to the road via a transversale (transverse) five-speed gearbox developed using experience of this transmission arrangement gained in Formula 1. The Mondial 't' featured two other Ferrari 'firsts': power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering and cockpit-adjustable ride quality control. Anti-lock brakes were another standard feature, as was air conditioning.

Our car was sold new from a London dealer to its first owner in Robertsbridge and has 14 stamps in the Service Book showing a comprehensive history from new. The colours of our car are a classic combination and the condition is very good for the age. This is the last of the line Mondial Cabriolet and ticks every box for ownership and practicality, it has a full four seats, is a full convertible and looks superb, it is the one to own for the future, that is for sure. For your peace of mind car has just undergone a full engine out service with cambelts and a check over by a reputable Ferrari specialist in our local area.

A fantastic chance to own one of only 51 RHD 3.4t Mondials ever produced so be quick at this price.
